Shaping Light

Want to play around with light in your photos? Meet your new best friend, the gobo – photography slang for an object that goes between the light and your subject. It can be something as ethereal as lace curtains or as simple as holes in a tin pie pan. Whatever you use, make sure your gobo is six or so inches away from your light source to keep your patterns nice and sharp.
