I had to set up the setting for this shoot. I had the table and a black fabric on top so I can have the pills out with the black background. The black fabric was not in a good condition so the camera caught all the dusts on it, so I had to work on photoshop to edit those flaws. I focused on doing close up shoots of the pills to avoid unnecessary things in the frame. I thought about the layout as I took pictures. I like how this came out to be.
I picked i-D magazine. It’s a magazine dedicated to fashion, music, art and youth culture. The concept of the cover of i-D is always having the model with one eye open and the other eye covered. It’s very iconic and I wanted to recreate the look. It was fun to work on this.
I’m planning to have my cat as the subject for this project. I’m thinking to do Puss in Boots. I’ll be doing a lot of close up shots. It’ll be a challenge since my cat moves around all the time but hopefully I’ll get some good results…
This is my first time doing light painting. It was very educational and fun. It was hard to even start because I had no idea what to do first. And it was difficult to be creative with the light painting. Overall, it was a fun experience.
it was very educational today. i learned a lot about the different types of portrait lighting and what each lighting does to the subject. I learned that each type of lighting creates different vibes. It was fun what light and shadow do on the face.
I always take some photographs under the natural light in my daily life, and taking photographs under the artificial light was very fun and educational. It’s fun to see how the ingredients of light can really make a difference. For me, it was easier to take some interesting photos at the low key lighting. The high key photograph was not really successful because I can still see a lot of shadows, but it was overall educational.
It was hard to capture motion, when especially it’s something that I don’t usually shoot. It was fun to play around with the shutter speed and aperture. Since this is my first time actually capturing motion, it was very educational.
I went to photoville on Saturday with my friend. And both of us really stopped our way and had a moment to see this work. It is by Josh Haner, a photographer at The New York Times. The color scheme of the photos is just really nice, and the composition in the third photo is amazing. But then I noticed that the photos are about the effects of climate change in greenland. It had brought awareness through beautiful artwork, reminding the audience that we won’t be able to see the beauty of nature in the future but just in the photos.
When I usually take pictures on the street, I tend to take pictures of the people in their back. This time, for the first time in my life, I asked this guy with the blue outfit for a permission. It was a great experience. I tried to think of the whole frame when taking photographs, and tried get rid of unnecessary elements out of the frame.
These are my best three photos for today’s class. It was hard to use the natural light when it’s so gloomy outside. For the first two photos, I had the model standing in the center of the frame so he can really stand out. And for the last portrait photo, the model was holding the equipment while sitting down on bench which caught my attention.
