Learning Log 1 Artificial Light Portraits

These are the best 3 pictures that I took although they are kind of blurry. Anyway, for picture 1 I wanted to show the model plus the ATM sign the light was just positioned in a cool way. For this specific picture i wanted to use the rule of frame where she is in the center and there is not of background shown just the sign and part of the window. For picture 2, what caught my eye the most was the way the light was concentrated on his face and some parts of his body which created intensity and drama. For this one, he was not centered in the middle, but more to the side because I wanted more of the background to show.  Picture 3 is my favorite, it is the most dramatic and intense because of the darks and the red light. This was a little blurry but what I love about it, is that some of his facial features are highlighted with the red light. Unintentionally, created this half dark half light effect on the model.

The photographer that stood out the most to me is Joey Lawrence. Going through his website and his work it amazes me at how beautiful all his shots are. He does mostly portrait shots but, there’s something about those shots that capture your attention. What stands out the most to me is the composition, the light, and how saturated the colors are in his pictures. In his pictures you could feel the emotion behind the picture, in his portraits the eyes reflect the person’s emotions. For example, in the picture above the composition of the photo is amazing you have a little bit of background and then you have part of the window where the sun is shining through and you could actually some of the rays peeking through. At the same time, it’s not too far out where you see too much background. The look that is captured on the girl’s faces show sadness and scared. If you look through his Oxfam: The Mosul Corridor project you see what these children need to face and that expression are captured in these girls faces.
