I have started a #100dayproject this week. I will create and Instagram everyday under the theme '2D into 3D illuminated'. I aim to exhaust all my usual 2D to 3D soloutions quickly, forcing me to reconsider, delve deeper and play further!
Now on #day2 and I have already realised that directional light is important to my practice. The shadows are as important when illumination is introduced to my surfaces.
In these first 2 posts I have used a light box (useful for their consistant surface of light) to illuminate the surfaces ready for Instagram. I have then also included an 'unlit' image beside to contrast the effects of the illumination. However these surfaces are still 'lit', lit instead however by the everyday household light. - but is this any lesser form of illumination?
It is with these contrasting images side by side that the 'unlit' images with a softer, warmer, cast light appeal to me more.
