Understanding how light and shadow falls on different shaped objects is pretty important. It gives us the ability to be able to quickly recognise problems with lighting setups in many different situations with all kinds of subjects. It also helps us to remedy them more quickly. Jay P Morgan’s recently launched new series, Laws of Light shows us these principles in action.
In the first video, Jay showed us the humble sphere. Now, we’re taking a good look at the cube. It seems like a random shape we wouldn’t need to worry about in the real world, but cubes can pop up all over the place. There’s the obvious product box photography, but there are many every day objects that fit into the general form of a cube type shape.
