Following Mike Weeks talk about lighting and in particular, “Rembrandt Lighting“, this week’s challenge is to submit a photo demonstrating this form of lighting. Rembrandt lighting is characterized by an illuminated triangle under the eye of the subject on the less illuminated side of the face. Mike explained how this could be done using a simple light source such as a window.

A 10 minute Youtube video by Gavin Hoey (a South Coast photographer) describes the arrangement very well but note you can easily substitute his flash lighting with the sun coming through a small window in the late afternoon. See his video via this link How to get Perfect Rembrandt Lighting: Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey.

For this week’s challenge, you don’t have to have a portrait of a face – someone we know is going to use his teddy bear! The essence of the lighting is to use the nose or another protuberance to create a shadow on the less illuminated side while the light catches and emphasizes the curves of the cheek. Kettle? jug? – have fun!

The deadline is next Thursday noon but we will hold images over to probably the 14th May for scoring by members. Late entries cannot be accepted.
