Hi lighting gurus,
I'm currently reading the book on light science magic. Very deep. Hoping it'll give me a better understanding about light.
I have a question. In chapter 3 it is explained that direct reflection(specular reflection) causes specular highlights (eg brigh hotspots on the forehead and nose of the subject, assuming of course that this is not due to oils etc). And this specular highlight is only visible when the camera is positioned in the family of angles (angle of incidence = reflection)
So my question is, if I were to position the camera out of the family of angles, I won't get the (often unflattering) specular highlights and only enjoy the nice and preferred diffuses reflections?
Am I on the right track?
