Pre Study Phase Literature Review Sciography (from Greek "shadow") is a branch of science of the perspective dealing with the projection of shadows, or delineation of an object in perspective with its gradations of light and shade. One of the major professional fields that use this technique is the architectural field as well as photography . In architecture it is defined as a study of shades and shadows cast by simple architectural forms on plane surfaces. In general sciography the light source is imagined as the sun inclined at 45 degrees to both vertical plane and horizontal plane coming from left hand side. The resultant shadow is then drawn. In photography, which is essentially recording patterns of light, shade, and colour, "highlights" and "shadows" are the brightest and darkest parts of a scene or image. Photographic exposure must be adjusted (unless special effects are wanted) to allow the film or sensor, which has limited dynamic range, to record detail in the highlights without them being washed out, and in the shadows without their becoming undifferentiated black areas. Product photography lighting options are plentiful these days thanks to the freedom that digital cameras now provide. Auto white balance (AWB) is so good on most recent digital cameras that almost any light source can be utilized.

Product photography using daylight gives you the advantage of using natural light from the outset. This means your lighting is closely in tune with your cameras default settings. However daylight can be variable and short lived depending on the time of year and your location. A bright but overcast day can be ideal for a product photography shoot as this light will likely be even and consistent. Bright direct sunlight can often be a nuisance but on occasion it can give you just the right atmosphere you’re looking for. To harness daylight you want to position and orientate your tabletop studio near a door or window so the light is coming in from the ideal direction – this direction will vary depending on your subject. Place one of the white backdrops on the far side of your tabletop studio to bounce light back on to your subject. So, we can see that the option of product lighting in the photography is very large which can be explored and learned through various techniques. There are many schools of photography that give full time training on product lighting and in other fields of photography , but they can be at times costly and very rare to find out. Therefore, I am here will try my best to develop an app suchn that the initial learning phase of photography is minimised through a very effective technique.

Fish Bone Diagram of Kitchen Knife Problem Concept of sciography not clear No camera for Not enough Don’t have enough clicking oppurtunity to experience to judge photos click photos what to click when Haven’t travelled enough Problem of Sciography as photographers skilll No common forum for discussion lazy enough to learn the full concept expensive skill to learn Don’t have the expertise to click photos involving sciographic concept Don’t know in which click and where they should appy that skill These are the few cause and effects of the problem that i wanted to solve.
