I really enjoyed the photos of the exhibit in NYU. I enjoyed many of them, they demonstrate a lot of the things we learned in class. Like vivid colors and patterns like the Blue Building, the garden and the Our Lady of Guadalupe. They also had “caught in the moment” photos like the dog, the girl being carried by a women, and the black and white image where the woman is feeding a child. I also like the self-portraits, the image of the horse, the nuns at church and distorted body images, which weren’t manipulated or edited. My least favorite were the blurry pictures. it’s more conceptual but I did like blurred building photo.
It was fun doing these motion photo shots. For the blurred background and focused car (mostly) I had to match the speed of the car. It took a few tries until I got the shot. The photos with the blurred cars and sharp backgrounds also took some tries but I finally got them. I did not get the chance to do the panning and multishot photos, so to supplement I took two zoom in and zoom out shots of Obed and Mahnoor. They both look like they are going in hyper speed. And the last photo has Jason standing still while the person in the background is blurred.
These are photos of my classmate Megan, she is very photogenic. With Timothy’s holding the speedlight from a distance, I was able to get the dramatic lighting. In the second photo, it was pretty much the same process. The only difference is she is leaning against the wall. The last photo was taken under the bridge, Timothy was on the far right and had the speedlight sideways.
In the first photo is of a random photographer working on a wedding shoot, the shallow depth field allows her to stand out. In the two photos of the teen, the second is strongest. The way his face turned and the light hits half of it. Similarly, the the depth of field makes him standout. The fourth photo has is a family or friends hanging out. This is a photo of Fernanda living in the moment.
I had a lot of fun doing this photo shoot, in the image I had my peer reach out for the bupropion bottle and and used one light with a grid. The second image, the lighting was also achieved with a grid. Then I composited several images together, turn two with a ghost like affect and turning them black and white, but the main image stayed in color.
