It has taken me a while to come up with an idea for my final project but I know what I want to do. The last time, we had done product photography and for my final project, that is what I want to do. I want to take pictures of my PS4 along with my PS4 games. I want to do this due to my love for video games, specifically PlayStation

During Class, we try to use natural light to light up our subject. From previous classes, we used lighting equipment to light up our subject. Using natural made a natural light shine on the subject.

During this exercise, we focused more on manipulating window light. Utilizing it to creates front, side and back highlights. I used my old Hulk Hogan Action figure as my subject. i know my window is a bit on the dirty side but i was hoping to window light would take it more out of focus. even though I was just using my phone for this exercise I feel I still got some okay shots.frontlit

For this week’s learning log, we were learning all about natural light/window lighting. For this learning log, I didn’t have anyone to model so I decide to use one of my Funko Pop that I had for a while. But I did a little editing on my photo in lightroom since one of my photos came out a bit dark for some reason. I had a hard time doing the side lit since the lighting was so bad because I’m staying in my sister’s room at this moment.

for this learning log we tackled using natural light ,ive used natural a lot before so i kind of knew what to expect, one thing that was a lot of trouble was using backlit because if you dont have enough distance or a good angle your subject can often be absorbed by the light. i think my favorite was the side lit because it creates a lot of depth on the subject.

The objective of today’s class was to capture three pictures with different forms of lighting: silhouette, front, and side lighting. I feel as though I was successful in capturing these forms of light, even if I did use just my phone instead of a traditional DSLR camera. For my pictures, I took some with the iPhone’s portrait mode on the camera, and the Adobe Lightroom app to get some various effects. I also used a piece of bristol paper to reflect the light for some of my pictures.

Today’s learning log is to capture portraits with natural lighting through a window. It was a bit difficult to get a frontal view due to the lack of window lighting in my location. However, it was a good experience to capture different views and lighting positions with the window. I used a white cardboard to reflect some light back to the subject and was able to get more visible details in the photos. Overall, it was a good practice in managing lighting from a fix source.

I managed to get my cat to sit in the window for 20 seconds. I used the soft light from the window that i get from around this time a day. in the last one, I shot somewhat of a silhouette where you can still see slight details of my cat. In the first one, I sorta used the curtain as a board so that whatever light I got coming in would bounce off of it and give the photo a nice even lighting on both sides. Lastly, in the middle one, I tried to get as close as I could with a side light.
