To get this effect, measure five feet toward the center of the room, starting from the west side of the window, and place the chair at that point. Have the camera the same distance from the light, as the subject, i. e., five feet. Have the lower curtain drawn up to within six inches of the top of the lower sash, and the top curtain drawn down about eight inches. Now have the subject turn the head away slowly from the light, until the full profile is obtained when viewed from the camera. This should take all of the light off of the nose and front part of the face, leaving the cheek and neck in a soft light, the strongest light being on the back of the neck, and grading across the cheek, until the cheek bone is reached, when it should go into the shadow. Follow directions for using the head-screen and side reflector, as given in the preceding chapters.
Note. - Subjects for .this effect in lighting should be selected with great care, as the face should be well rounded, that the gradations may be even, and regular. Time of exposure about the same as for Rembrandt lighting.
