After a marvelous on-site demonstration by guest lecturer and
professional photographer Jeff Janko of Texas A&M University -
Corpus Christi, we were challenged to come up with our own portraits
for the October 2003 assignment. As none of us had the lighting
setups used by the pros, we did the next best thing and "field
improvised" and set up our own lighting conditions as best we
could. The portraits came out pretty well and gave us some
experience on how to shoot portraits for our own use, making use of
materials at hand, ranging from bed sheets for backdrops, home and
shop floods for lights, to car windshield reflectors for light
