Informal Portrait: My Favourite Photo

10 Feb

This photo is an informal portrait of my friend Emily, and the type of lighting seen in here is “side lighting”. I chose this as my favourite photo because the lighting gives the photo a soft and bright aura because of the subtle colour difference between one side of her hair and the other side of her hair. Although her smile appears to be a little awkward, the light that touches her face gives the photo a cheery effect and pleasant to see. The lighting isn’t too obvious, and that is why it gives the photo an overall soft touch, rather than harsh edges. Yet, we can still tell that the type of lighting is “side lighting” because of the various shades of shadows from one side to another.
