Global Corrections – Yunique

For my before image, I captured a some berries in a bush. At first glance, the mood of this photograph is very dull and dreary. All from the color and lighting of the photo. There are also various colors being used, but I felt that it should give the image a bit of pop to it.

For my after image, there have been many edits that helped changed the mood of my photograph. In Lightroom, I wanted to give my subject, the berries, a bit more color to it. I wanted to increase  the hues on my reds in the image so that the series appeared more lively and present. I decreased my exposure slightly, increased the contrast and reduced some of the highlights. I also reduced some of the whites in the image. clarity was also fixed in which I increased it slightly. I also wanted the trees in the background to be more greener, so I also messed around with the green hues within my image. Sharpening, Vibrance and Saturation were also increased slightly.

Midterm Critique – Melissa’s Photos

This photograph was one of the best in terms of capturing the natural beauty of a plant. There were many different forms that were achieve within this image such as fill the frame and the use of shallow depth of field. I like how the color green radiates throughout the image.

Some things about this photo is that if fills the frame, has great backlight and also focuses on the subject, the berries, more than what’s being shown in the background.
This photograph highlights the natural beauty of Mother Nature. We are seeing elements of a shallow depth of field which is capturing the beauty of the plants we see in the photograph. The lighting is also well achieved when cast upon the plants.
This photograph is also interesting and one of the best I’ve seen in terms of capturing a wild animal in its habitat. We can see the usage of the rule of thirds which suggests that the subject does not have to be in the center of the image. The lighting is also varied in which we can see that the squirrel, the subject, is in a more dimmer area than the background which has more direct light.

Lab – Angle of View


I chose these two photographs as my best pair because I actually had the chance to do both worms eye and birds eye views of the same location. I was able to at first take picture A , of the building, from the ground. I then found some steps which took me up to where the lady in red is, which gave me a more birds eye view of where I was standing while taking picture B. I do believe if I could’ve improved anything, it would be my worms eye view. I would have gone closer to the building and take a photograph of it looking up to it rather than this far from the building. Just like how in picture A it looks like the photo was taken looking down.
