BAVFXA53 --- Case Studies
The Assignment: The assignment is to photograph an object so it can be animated on the Internet. By taking a series of 6 pictures the object can be made to "rotate" much as if a movie were taken of it.
Composition: These range from expensive "object rigs" to plastic ones from a kitchen store. To capture the sequence to be animated, you place the object in the exact center of the turntable and rotate it a specified amount between shots. The more pictures in the series, the smoother will be the animation. If you rotate the turntable 60 degrees between each shot you can take five pictures (360 / 60 = 5). If you rotated it about 51 degrees between each shot you could take 6 images.
Lighting: Lighting is arranged much like it was in the last case featuring Road Runner. It's side lit by the main light through a diffuser. A light positioned directly above the toy illuminates the top of the feathers.
Camera Settings: Because the reflected light varies slightly as you rotate an object, automatic exposure may vary causing the background to flicker when you animate the series. To prevent this from happening, use manual exposure mode or exposure lock.
