A wall is a vertical surface and, as such, shooting a vertically positioned subject and lighting your desired subject requires careful strobe positioning.
- [Dick] Now we're going to talk about…shooting on a wall,…and a wall, as you'll see,…is a special kind of underwater landscape.…And the idea here is we're going to be discussing how to light…along a vertical surface.…And so as you can see,…our simplified scene has changed dramatically.…And so notice how we're going from a coral in the background…that is oriented more or less horizontally to one…in the foreground, this white coral, that is growing out…of this wall.…And in the world of scuba diving,…a wall is a vertical surface that may descend for miles.…
That might sound a little bit scary or precarious,…but it's not at all because bear in mind,…when you're diving you are ideally weightless…and so you just float at whatever depth you like.…You don't care at all what's beneath you.…- [Hergen] So let's take a look…at photographing on a wall.…So here you can see we've got our camera…and we are properly set up…for what would be a portrait photo.…But unfortunately, we are in the wrong spot.…The reason being that well, the wall itself…
