Top Down Lighting

There are unlimited numbers of lighting schemes, and groups thereof. Taking top down lighting as an example, I wanted to try it with a very narrow beam of light – shooting down a cardboard paper towel tube was one thing I tried, then a few snoots (snoots are plastic, fabric or metal very like the paper towel tube I fabricated). I found most worked equally well regardless of length. It was where the light was focused that mattered most, and for me the best position was slightly in front of the object but shedding some light on the front of the subject. This called is feathering.
