You don't know that. May be his models are luminous!


Seriously, I frequently work with luminous models. (Even taught it. Among the hundreds of lectures and classes I've given is a series of blacklight bodypainting workshops).

Once the object has been illuminated, that's it, it's now a light source in its own right. double the distance, and the radiance at the observer point is quartered (inverse square law, which the OP missuses) but the area is also quartered, with a net constant intensity per unit area.

Really, if the OP's "logic" held, macrophotography and microscopy would be essentially impossible, because the subjects, shot from fractions of inches, would be too bright.

JOE, seems that you are the ring leader of the confused.

Intensity of any light source is inversly proportional to the distance from the light source or the reflector.

You won't discuss this FACT because it would reveal to your booty boys that you do not have a clue.

I have enough technical training in this area. Sorry that you don't.

And who ever wrote that crap above, the model's or subject's area is constant, as is the sensor area.
