Overall, my visit at the NYU photo gallery was enjoyable. I found the photos impressive and felt like they were one-of-a kind. There were two photos that caught my attention.
In the first photo, I found that there were many elements that made the image fascinating: leading horizontal lines from the houses, frame-within-a-frame from windows. In addition, I believe that the photographer did not follows the rule of thirds on purpose and its to show a documentary type of image. What I liked the most from this photograph is the stairs that somewhat made this image three-dimensional.
The second photo shows a nun talking on the phone. What I liked about this photo is the double framing that made it seem that someone is watching over her. Also the picture of Jesus perfectly frames behind the nun’s head even though it’s a candid image.
In this action shot, I’ve stitched 3 photos together. The setting that I used was a shutter speed of 1/400 and ISO 100.
For these frozen motion shots I’ve set my camera settings to 1/ 500 and ISO 100 with F 2.8
For this frozen subject and motion blur background, I’ve set my camera settings to 1/30 with F5.6 and ISO 200
To achieve the results of the shots above, my group used a speed lite with an umbrella attachment to spread more light out. I’ve also adjusted my settings by increasing the aperture and shutter speed.

For these set of photos, I set my aperture to F5.6 to make sure that my shots aren’t too soft. I changed my shutter speed whenever the lighting conditions change. All of the shots were candid except for the first one.
In this photo I used a black background to achieve a more dramatic look. In addition, I used two strobe lights with a light box attached to produce softer lighting. I’ve also used a reflector facing the model to reduce glare from the soda bottle.
The way I photographed the first image is by attaching a soft box in one of the lights. Using a soft box reduced the amount of shadows in the image. In the second image, I placed the subject on top of a reflective sheet to produce a ‘mirrored look’. I’ve also attached blu tack underneath my AirPods case to make it stand up. Overall I liked the second image because the white colors from the Airpods stand out to the black background.
Today in class we shot light drawing pictures. To achieve these photographs, we set our camera’s settings into these: ISO 100, F13, and shutter speed to 13 seconds or more. The first photo was a double exposure. We triggered the speed light twice to achieve the “two persons” look. In the second picture, no flash was triggered to produce a silhouette. Also a light rod was used to create a background. Overall, this photo shoot was quite fun and enjoyable.
