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.
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.
This photo series was about disabled men who had polio or became paralyzed. They come to a center called OPEN DOORS, to do music, poetry, creative activities and are able to live fuller lives. Vanishing point is the hallway and lighting above the subjects head is. Photographer is Elias Williams.

This week we worked with both ambient light and a flash light. I really enjoyed working with the flash. The flash creates a more dramatic photo. We tried to focus the ambient light on the background and used the flash for a more dramatic look on our subjects. I feel that working with the flash actually made it easier to create a more interesting image.
I’ve been more motivated and inspired since my Photoville visit. I was very exited and I’d rather watch than take photos. Here are two of photos that caught my eyes based on what I’m learning in class. In first photo: the concept is very obvious without reading the description. Also I see background, mid ground, and foreground are shown by focusing on the middle objects.
Second photo: I was analyzing this photo by looking at light and shadow, where the light comes from? what time of the day this photo is taken? what type of light is seen in his face? Is there any other light source? and more…
The first picture I used the made use of the blue light being cast from on of the monitors in the hallway. The second picture I noticed the light coming from the bathroom to be giving off warm colors compared to the cool colors of the hallway. For the third picture I used the light from my phone to cast shadows throughout this sculpture.
In class we did a shooting workshop in dumbo. Since our class is around evening it was hard to take pictures of lights and shadow. Also it was kind of challenging for me as I’m not used to of shooting in low light or at night. But with the help of Professor and what I learned in class I was able to capture some images. These are the images where I tried to show lights and shadow.
