Sept. 6th- Patterns/Lighting Set Ups

Updated: Sep 6, 2023

1. Principle of Design #2/Patterns

For the start of class, you'll be in Pixlr creating a Pattern- another element of design.

Before you do, head to the website called The Pattern Library

Look there for inspiration but don't copy exactly. (That's considered plagiarism.)

Then head to Pixlr. Follow our tutorial and create your own pattern.

2. Split Lighting

Today you'll be shooting your first lighting setup called Split Lighting. To achieve split lighting, simply put the light source 90 degrees to the left or right of the subject (you can even move it slightly behind their head). In true split lighting, the only part of the “shadowed” face that should be lit is the eye.

You will work in groups of three and take turns modeling and photographing this setup:

You'll get a result that looks similar to this:

Edit it in Pixlr to accentuate the shadows. Submit to Schoology under "Split Lighting."
