SCRIPT A good photographer explores a wide range of light sources. Today, for example, we’re shooting at 7 am. The sun rises at 7. But you’ll notice it’s hazy and starting to drizzle. It’s an ideal lighting situation because the light is soft and gentle. The thing to notice about this is to get up early and shoot around sunrise. It can give you fabulous light you wouldn’t find in the middle of the day. (Harris talking to himself) 10 seconds, here we go. (camera shutter) You get a soft gentle light when shooting in the early morning haze.
PRACTICE Take a picture of yourself in the morning before the sun rises. It’s even better if it’s misty or foggy. The light should be kind of a bluish gray.
Take a portrait of yourself.
Study your results. Write in 25-75 words your observations in your Progress Report.
