I choose to do a vaccination PSA, to rise the importance of vaccination. My original photo is very saturate, therefore I toned down the rich color to complement the backdrop, I used intense red for my headline pushing it to the top of the visual hierarchy. I used magic selection tool to isolated the figure away from the original background and added a new background, however, the selection is perfect. I enjoyed today’s section.
The magazine cover I choose to do is National Geographic. I really enjoyed todays section, from taking the photo to photoshopping it, it really felt like I’m doing a professional production. I haven’t encounter any hardship while taking my photo, however it is a struggle to wait for others to finish their shoot at their stations.
I really enjoyed taking the photos and editing the magazine cover for vogue because I got to get creative. It was fun messing with type as well.
I am very interested in this week’s photoshoot, it is somewhat related to what I do, therefore, it is extremely helpful to me. However, the photos I took can not really compete with a professional, but I feel it is very educating.
My idea was to photograph a concealer and make the advertisement all based on the concealer I had. I wanted a mirror effect because I thought it would look nice since its a beauty product and most beauty products usually have that mirrored look which I really enjoy. I wanted to show someone opening the concealer which I thought would add on to the look and make it interesting as an ad. Overall I really like these 2 photos because of how they both are mirrored and both have different concepts to it.
I flashed speed-light on the figure multiple time with different poses, the result gave me multiplied of same figure in a single frame. I also did some light graffiti while doing multiple exposure. The challenge we faced as a group was we communicated very poorly, and that slowed our photo shoots. overall, I enjoyed today’s photo shoots.
I took all my portraits vertically, therefore I was able to eliminate unwanted object out of the background. Good lighting helps immensely when taking the portraits, most of the work goes into the lighting setup, taking the shot is actually the easiest one.

I really enjoyed taking these photos in different lightings because they all created a different vibe and feel to it. It was really fun and interesting to learn how to take these photos and I learned a lot during the process of it. One of my favorite photos is the last one with edge lighting with Kiara in it because it gives a relax feel to it and a really calming vibe. It gives these vibes because of the edge lighting which I like a lot.
I really like all of these photos because of the way they’re all unique and different from each other. My favorite one that I took was the first one of christian because of how we played with the gels to try to make a gradient kind of color with the blue and red. For each of these photos I made sure to position my models that way the photo would come out with the kind of lighting I wanted. Overall, this was fun to do and play around with because it was all different and fun.
