Lighting to Show Form

About this tutorial

The most succinct description of photography could be “The capturing of a 3-dimensional subject on a 2-dimensional space using perspective, depth of field, and contrast to create the illusion of depth.” I should say, that you could use that description if you lack any kind of emotion whatsoever – of course, photography is way more than just that! But it’s important that we begin at the beginning – so this tutorial will introduce you to the tones that help us create the illusion of depth and dimension on a 2-dimensional medium. Don’t be fooled though – this tidbit is also critical in creating any sense of mood in your lighting!
