Project 52/Playing with Light: Directional Light [3]

This week’s directional lighting is from the front, and totally artificial.

I love everything about my younger daughter’s dance school. The teacher is sweet, the classes are low key, and the moms are a lot of fun to chat with on Saturday mornings. Instead of a fancy recital, each student does a “showcase” for family and friends to show off what she’s learned during the year. But it is not a great place for photos. A bit of natural light comes in through the window, but not enough to light photos well. The ceiling is black and the walls are light green, so there is no place to bounce an external flash.  The only option was to try my luck with aiming the flash forward. I bought an inexpensive flash diffuser and fired away.
