    Default Ghetto Lighting

    Ghetto Lighting is just lighting that you have on hand (eg desk lamp or torch) rather than proper photographic strobes etc.



    Im sick so i have not had the energy nor the desire to even pick up camera so im cheating and posting one i did a few weeks ago...

    as you can see .. my lamp was off to the right of me and slighly to the front... also it was placed a little lower...

    Please remember to add the "Assignment: Ghetto Lighting" tag to your posts! Exif data must be still intact and images must be taken between "2nd Jan- 15th Jan" goodluck!!!

    Next weeks Assignment will be "Good Use of DOF" (depth of field)


    Cheers

    Here's one of my older photos that I used a desk lamp in. Would have been a lot easier to do if I had some help with the light. XD This isn't for the assignment but I did use 'ghetto lighting'

    This is my first post of a photo to this thread!! It is not eligible for the challenge because it was taken earlier but I would love to receive any critique! This is my grandson fascinated with a flashlight...

    Default flashlight

    The power was out for quite awhile and this is my one year old son having a ball with the "light".

    Photobucket

    I took this picture in November so I don't think it is eligible for the assignment. This is my first week on this forum. I love the motivation it has given me. I received a new camera for Christmas and vow to learn truly how to use it!

    Hi Pooks, did you have a flash fire in this shot?

    Just incase anyone was having a bit of trouble working out what ghetto lighting is / looks like... you can have a look here [there may be partial nudity on the referred flickr page]

    Thumbs up

    Hey eveyone, I just wanted to post a really great sample of ghetto lighting. I only modeled for this pic, so it obviously it's not my entry. The photo itself is by PHY Photo (myspace.com/phyphoto). I hope no one gets mad, since I modeled for it, she said I am allowed to post it.

    Anyway, this is a great sample of ghetto lighting! the only lighting used were the xmas lights you see... it did require an extremely long exposure time (close to 30 secs), so unless you know someone who can freeze like a popcicle, you might wanna try an inanimate object. I'm gonna be doing my ghetto entry over the weekend, I plan on workin the ropelight.
