I’ve chose the fairy tale – Goldilock and the three bears. I decided to be very close to the story plot, and to be literal with the storyboard, as I want to recreate authentic mood. That is why I prepared props a day before, first I planed to shoot my friend as a main character Goldilock, but there was a conflict of time the day of shooting, so I was left with nothing but become a main character myself and asked for a friend to shoot me under my directing. That is why it took me longer even after instruction what kind of shot to took and how to frame, so I was checking every photo taken to be sure, that it is what I want. The difficulties I faced was setting the camera to shoot in very small room, that is why I need to be more creative with angles of shots. So I live in loft I have a ladder to the attic, that gave me a chance to shoot from above.

Recreating a photo
This class I learned how to set light for dramatic type of shoot. I practiced position of lighting source to create different light effects. Practiced changing background for shooting in studio. Practiced choosing type for PSA poster, and placing text, logos to enhance the message and improve design.
This class we were learning the light painting portraits. With the help of different lights we are getting different results. I learned a lot on this class not only in terms of using light to be creative but also essential skills in photography, such as control of manual flesh to get double exposure. I learned about how to correctly expose the photo using manual flesh + creative light. This class helps me to understand the process of exposing with slow shutter speed.

I learned how to shape the light to get the best to shoot with just one continue light. I learned how the distance, position, intensity of light affect the photo. I practiced shooting objects with continues light, shooting with color gel, practiced shooting with tripod and without.
Outdoor portraits with flash
In this class we were learning how to use flashes in low light situation. It was a very tequinically complicated thing for learn. I learned how to set camera settings so I can shoot with flash light, I learned how to modify light with flash with the help of diffuser and umbrella. I would like to get more practice of it, as my photos were blurred, and I wanna get the most out of flash as a portable source of light.
