Chair.

This was my favorite picture from the shooting today in class.

I like how the light its reflected on the chair, making high and low shadows.

The focus in front its sharp, while the other parts are blurry.

The picture has a sidelit lightning.

Frame or Radical Cropping

"The Chair"

The picture that I find to be successful within the album was this Radical Cropping of the chair. The picture is interesting because of the different lighting, the top of the picture is brighter where the bottom of the picture is dark. In the background is more of a blue while the chair itself is very focus/sharp.

Learning log 1: Chair

The picture that i like the most out of the pictures that ive taken is the frame cropped image of the chair. I feel that this photo has a good use of negative and positive space. as well as the emphasized texture on the chair. also with it being cut off at an angle it makes you wonder whats going on with the rest of the chair.

I am really enjoying our class today  and learning about camera operation. I think we took many great  and successful pictures. Playing with lighting  ,viewpoint, line and texture even plain and boring chair can look attractive. This is one my favorite picture. We chose low-angel viewpoint that  made chair stand up.  Light comes from subject and gave mysterious look.

My New Wallpaper

The most successful picture I took today was the wooden texture. It’s a simple extreme close-up of an old stool, but it’s so chaotic and it works really well. There are a lot of different colors present, and even the parts of the wood that aren’t scratched up appear to be of different tones.¬† On this thumbnail, the differences in color are what stand out the most, but on the full-size version you can really see how deep the scratches are and just how damaged the stool really is. Seriously, how did this thing end up so damaged in the first place?

In any case, I just found my new wallpaper.

Oblique Angle

My favorite picture that I took today is the oblique angle.  I like this picture because the chair looks like it is about to roll away, the shadow and the lighting help this illusion.  When I look at it, it makes me think that it is on a ship, and that ship has hit rough seas and/or is about to sink.

I’m often confused with the term oblique, as long as I remember that oblique means diagonal, I’ll be fine.

Chair Photoshoot – Kassandra Urena

The most successful picture I took today was this picture that was part of a stool that we used. My group decided to use the stool in an angle to create a different effect, rather than just keeping the stool in the same position. We used a light to create shadows on the legs of the stool. In the end an interesting shadow appeared, along with small light spots throughout the stool legs.

In-Class Chair/Stool Photoshoot – Jahshari Wilson

Today, we did an in-class photoshoot; the subject being a chair or stool. We learned how to operate and handle a camera, read a histogram for a picture, angles, resolution, and overall shooting. For the photoshoot, we had to take twenty different shots, focusing on viewpoint, space and perspective, line, balance, texture, and lighting. I learned about having positive or negative space in a picture, and how to take a picture at an oblique angle.

Learning Log 1 – Regina Torres

Today in class we had our first shooting, and it was really exciting seeing all the different results that came out. One of the pictures I took that I liked the most was the one that we used for shallow depth. It has the end of the stool centered and, then rest of the picture is blurred; by doing this it is also hard to tell it is a stool right away. Also, one of the things that I liked about the picture was the way the light hit the stool and it creates a nice contrast between the highlights and the rest of the stool.

In-Class

The terms positive and negative space never really made sense to me before but now I understand what the concept of it is.  Positive space is taken up by the subject and leaves little of the background.  The background is the negative space.  I think that this knowledge will be very helpful to me both as a photographer and as a graphic designer.  I now understand that this framing is very important and can convey many different things.

For example; this picture has a lot of negative space which helps to make the chair look small.  More positive space would help it look bigger.
