PROJECT 52-6-43- LIGHTING - Side Lighting
Posted By: noelcmn, 12-07-2014, 12:28 PM

Welcome to PROJECT 52-6 for the year 2014.

PROJECT 52-6-43- LIGHTING-Side lighting

Images for Project 52-6-43 are to be taken between the 8th December 2014 and 14th December 2014.


Rules
1. Anyone and everyone interested in the challenge is eligible. The goal continues to be have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques
with fellow Pentaxians.
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-6 thread for the week. Explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
theme.
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by non Pentax cameras are allowed.Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot,
Medium Format, et cetera.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable. You may request to submit a photo outside of the time frame, but its
acceptance is dependent o the judge of the week. Please try and keep to within a day or two (either way 92% the week. This is to make allowances for
those that would like to participate, but for one or other reason, are not able to do so during the time given for the challenge, such as illness, weather,
travelling etc.
9. The WINNER of each weekly challenge is the JUDGE of the next week's Project 52-6.
10. The Facilitator (in this case noelcmn) may participate in the challenge, provided he/she is not the judge.
11. Closing date for the challenge is Sunday at midnight in your time zone. Late entries are accepted but subject to the acceptance by the current weeks
Judge.

We are still on the subject of lighting, this time Side Lighting, which has also only appeared once in the Project 52 challenges. It is something that I have tried with varying success. It can be challenging, and I expect a good few portraits (which is what I have only tried). An external flash will come in handy. Please remember too rule #6-black and white etc is allowed, which I seem to recall is wonderful for Side Lighting images.

Here are the winners from that one challenge-excellent stuff too!

I tried several different things for this one and this was my favorite. My light source was a small battery powered LED lantern with a piece of wax paper wrapped over it as a diffuser. It is sitting on a dark stained maple table.

Hi Saltwater Images, that is a fabulous shot, except that it is not acceptable for this challenge as it must be taken within the specified period stated above ..... "Images for Project 52-6-43 are to be taken between the 8th December 2014 and 14th December 2014.". Hope you can try something else, though time may be against you.
