All Shadow or Hetherington Lighting 52

This effect is secured by measuring from the west end of the window a line running out five feet, and then back from this line toward the west, one foot. Place the chair at that point and the camera about ten feet from the window. Have the lower curtain drawn to the top of the lower sash, and the top sash open. Turn the subject away from the light until the whole face is in shadow, as our illustration shows. The strongest light will be at the back of the neck, but all the rest of the face must be in shadow. If the camera is not in exactly the right place to secure the profile after these directions are followed, move it in whatever direction it should go to secure what is wanted. If there is not enough detail in the face, follow the directions for using the side reflector, as given in Chapter I (Introduction), and the same holds good for the use of the head screen. Time of exposure, about one-third longer than for Rembrandt.
