HW#8 – Photographic Style

Identify the lighting style used including the angle of view, and lighting pattern: Rembrandt, split, butterfly light, broad, or shot light. How much fill is used to brighten the shadows? How is a background light used to separate the subject from the background? What is the palette? How tight is the framing? What is the angle of view?

Lighting Pattern: Butterfly Light

How much fill is used to brighten the shadows? – There is plenty of amount of fill used to highlight the shadows, especially for the first 2 movie posters since they have the element of the drawn characters behind them.

How is a background light used to separate the subject from the background? – The background light is used to separate the subject from the photo bringing as might light as possible to their face almost as if it wouldn’t matter for the shadows since they are not seen at face value.

How tight is the framing? There is a good use of the rule of thirds within the first two posters however not in the third which is just centered. This is done for the concept of the art upon having the 2D drawing mirror the live-action actors. That is why it uses a full-body shot for every poster.

What is the angle of view? The angle of view from what I can tell is eye level

Natalie Soto: HW 8 – Photographic Style

The magazine brand that I chose is Oyster Magazine. The kind of lighting style they tend to use is Rembrandt, broad and short light; they don’t use the same lighting style for every cover they’re different from one another. Oyster magazine uses a fair amount of fill to brighten the shadows, to me it looks like they used three point lighting for most of their covers. Apart from using a background light, Oyster magazine uses a different color for their background. Rather than stick to the same white background it changes and the subject stands out and doesn’t blend in as much. The palette includes an assortment of colors that often tend to be dark rather than light; they rarely use bright colors such as pink, yellow or orange. The framing isn’t that tight if anything it’s the opposite and they almost never make it tight in their covers. The angle of view is taken from the eye level.

Topic: What is it about? What genre of photography interests you and would you like to explore: street photography, food photography, portrait photography

Portrait photography and setting up different backgrounds

What purpose will it serve in your portfolio? Do you want to highlight your

conceptual thinking, your design sense, your lighting skills

I want to highlight my design sense, knack for color, lighting skills

Subject Matter: Literally what will you shoot?

The concept will be family, chosen and biological. I want to shoot my mom and siblings sitting portrait style, but I also want to include my friends and community

Style: What will it look like? How will you use photographic style to communicate

emotion and point of view? Find at least one example and include at least one

image with your description.

I will be using a backdrop, color and fabric to be determined, outside in a park or simply on the sidewalk. I want joy to be the primary emotion that comes across; I will achieve this through shooting my subjects laughing, embracing, etc. The image I’m including is a reference for how I want to set up the portrait: with a colorful backdrop.

Lighting: how will you light your project? This may be daylight.

I will be shooting in daylight
