Exercise The lighting angle (page 156)

The lighting angle

Light fitted with diffuser at various angles and positions (11 photos)

In my opinion the one which gives the best 3-dimensional effect i.e. revealing the form of the subject best is the one that is with the lighting immediately above and slightly in front.

The one I like best is the one with the lighting down at at an angle of 45 degrees and slightly in front.
