Lighting Test

I've put this here for my own reference. I've added a large reflector/diffuser to my lighting stage key light, and I wanted to take some test shots with it in place.

All photos were taken at ASA 100, f8, and with the camera set to auto-exposure. All lights are 24w. cool-white "daylight" fluorescents.

The camera is a Fuji FinePix S6500fd, now getting on for about ten years old.


  1. Ambient light only, approx 1.1 seconds.
  2. Key light only, approx. 1/12 seconds
  3. Key + left fill, approx. 1/20 seconds
  4. Key + left + right fill, approx. 1/30 seconds
