Here are the test images I took for the front cover for the Book Cover assignment.

The lighting setup consisted of 1 light with a soft box on it positioned at about 3 o’clock to the face to create the split light effect we used a light meter to make sure the the light and camera setting matched to produce the best and most balanced image possible.
