Lighting a rubber duck

This is a short demonstration of how the angle of illumination affects the look of an object, for assignment 1.1 in David Hobby’s Lighting 102 course. The duck was placed in the center of a round table, and it and the camera were fixed in position. The flash was swept around the perimeter of the table but kept pointing towards the center of the table at a constant height. I’ll have to redo this when I get some light stands and can modify the height of the flash as well.

Note to Ang: Yeah, I still have this duck kicking around, though it has become a cat toy in recent months.
