For this class, we had to photography a product that we brought to class. At first I was using a starbucks cold brew glass bottle but the color of the bottle and the background didn’t seem right to I had to switch it up. I decided to use my iPad and it was a success. The most difficult part of this assignment was figuring out how I was going to add the actual screen to the iPad using photoshop. I ended up figuring how to photoshop the screen and then went ahead and made a little ad for Apple.
For this assignment, we had to go around the school building and find interesting sources of light and take a picture of someone or something under the light. This was a pretty difficult task due to the fact that the Voorhees building barley has any good lights to take some pictures. The first picture was actually taken in class under the light of a projector. The other two were taken in a bathroom and the other one in a classroom.
For the long exposure photography class. Professor Labrozzi had us go outside since it was dark already. We had to create several images that represented long exposure which means that the shutter is left open for several seconds longer and the camera takes in more light creating light trails and bright lights. These are 3 photos that I took the night of and one of them is a motion . photograph with a touch of long exposure.
I saw at the exhibit that all photos were of expressions of freedom. The pride exhibit did not have many photos. But they were considered self explanatory. As that there was not much needed context or in description to see the events on the photos. Though the irony of that all photos are in black and white, yet symbols of pride are very colorful.
Imagining the photos in real life really brings out the color and its almost completely vivid of the hues on the scene of the color. what stood out to me the most was a photo of a person that dressed half like a man and half like a woman. What caught my interest was that, that person can be anyone a man or women.
To me the message of the photo mentions the separation between sex and gender. With pose of prideful expression there is the lack of fear being shown and the strength of being one’s self no matter the gender or sex classification. While everyone is one or the other, why not be both.
For today’s class we had to create a Public Service Announcement and for this me and Nicole decided to do a Domestic Violence PSA and I did this pretty scary shot for this PSA in which i was keeping Nicole Silent. Overall, this was a pretty fun project to work on but also complicated to come up with a good shot for this PSA.
For this class, we had to photograph and layout a magazine cover with on of the pictures from the shoot. Being that I was being used as a model, I barely have any pictures other than mine. What was pretty interesting about this class was that many magazines use similar layouts but they all have to be laid out in a specific way in order to make the image stand out and also allow the type to work.
