The photo on the left was taken under normal classroom lights and with flash. The use of flash in a well-lit environment created a harsh and reflective effect on the subject, which resulted in a washed out picture. The photo on the right was taken without flash, and utilised the flashlights pointed from three different angles (3-point lighting) which resulted in a softer, aesthetically pleasing effect. The markings on the perfume in the photo on the right is clearly legible, as opposed to the photo on the left. With the stark difference of the same subject under two different conditions, it made me understand the importance of choosing the appropriate control settings when capturing any image.
