Lighting 101

I wanted some practical hands-on practice, seeing how to alter lighting, so I put the camera on a tripod, turned off all the lights and then turned on one lamp. It's easier to control the light when there's fewer options. With just some aluminum foil and diffuser, I made about eight different setups. It's the easiest way to understand something as clearly as possible when you do it yourself and see what changes what in the frame.
