So today in class, we learned about motion photography. It’s pretty simple and complex at the same time. In other words, you become a magician and stop time with your camera but there’s a certain way you have to follow to achieve this. Motion photography is a pretty dope thing to shoot. The shots that i’m presenting today are my personal favorites because it shows what it means to stop time.
The walking motion was a cool experience because the background is blurred and focus on the person walking so it gives it like a frozen in time effect. Second two pictures were interesting because the shutter speed determines if the object that is moving gets blurred or if it gets frozen. The higher the shutter speed the more focus the object will be and could be frozen during the motion. And that also means that the ISO gets higher as well.
Flash photography was new to me and like the process of using it, figuring how much or less flashlight you and seeing the effect that creates on the subject. Mainly I used the flash to create a little dramatic effect on my model playing with the shadow and light. I’m very into flash photography hope to learn more.
Using the flash was new to me on this assignment but was interesting to learn about and use. At first it was difficult to maneuver both shutter speed after a few tries and ISO, but I got used to it. I first tried to adjust the ISO then take a test picture and then adjusting the s peed. I mostly tried to use both light and contrast and create visible shadow and depth with the flash and ambient lighting.
For some reason, I wasn’t able to upload the photos for a few days keep receiving HTTP error. message. This photography has symmetry and light balance in the photograhy. Focual point is the subject which is the cross and man in the center sitting on couch. Photography by Tony Baizan-Garcia.

That was a great opportunity learning about atmospheric night portrait . I learned how to use flash, based on the result I want to achieve. It was very hard to change aperture, iso, and shutter speed and adjust the flash light, then I decided not to change any of those except aperture. I am not satisfied with colors and need to lean more about that.
The images above were taken using an off-camera flash as well as ambient lighting from the scene. The most challenging part was trying to get both the subject AND the background using the flash. Once we got the hang of making sure the camera’s settings were correct BEFORE we adjusted settings on the flash, I think we were able to get some cool pictures.
