A Still Life Lighting Animation
Now and then, I make a lighting animation to see how the light plays through a still life photograph. It’s fun, and it’s easy to make these animations, and it gives me an idea of how the light is working. These animations almost feel like videos shot from the camera’s point of view!
There are two pencil sharpeners in this image; the small green one on the left has such an unusual shape, and I love the color. The larger sharpener was given to me many years ago by my father, and although it’s just an object, it’s a sentimental one which I’ve photographed before. It really is a small machine (and it has gears!), and I admire the thought that went into its design.

Here’s the video animation, which gives an idea of how the lighting looked as I applied it:
