OF GREAT importance to the photographer is a thorough knowledge of the lighting technique required to obtain a desired result.

This unusual photograph of glassware and water was made by Fred G. Korth as an advertising illustration. One small photoflood in a reflector was placed directly behind the set-up with the camera shooting into the light. Neither side nor front lighting would have given the dynamic effect and brilliant contrast desired.

The picture was made with a Zeiss Ikon Ideal B camera, ƒ 4.5 Tessar 13y2 cm. lens stopped down to ƒ 8, and an exposure of 1/200 second. This shutter speed was sufficient to stop the motion of the water which was being poured into the funnel and the bubbles caused by the stream.
