For my Advanced Techniques in Photojournalism class, we were to photograph two types of images: one whose lighting configuration we couldn’t figure out easily and one whose lighting enhanced the image’s overall mood.
I found these two images in Fall 2008 issue of PDNedu.
This is a vertical crop of a horizontal photo. I cropped it in-camera. Not sure why I chose to do that. It appears that a softbox was aimed at each child’s head — but I can’t figure out exactly how.
This photo is of two children playing in a wrecked building in Kabul. It was photographed by Lana Slezic, and is the photo I chose for its lighting and its impact on mood.
