Exploring the NYU Tish building i viewed several works of art from other students. I will say i am very impressed by most of these works from the exhibition but the ones that stood ot to me the most wold have to be “Cachaça é Café” by Danielle Braga Jones. the photos below stood out to me the most with how organically composed these are. i will address that the focusing on these images are a little blurry, but that seems to add to the more organic feeling of the photo especially since she is focussing on family relations and nothing is ever perfect with family but its always loving and that is what im feeling from these photo peace and tranquility.
the other student that i loved work from would be “A Man’s Work” by Sky Algosaibi-Jones. The composition of both of these phots were astethically pleasing seeing ass how the subject is centered frame alongside the contrast of colors. the only thing i can even critque would be the noise in the phtotos seems to bother my eye a little when view the collection. the man picking up garbage was my favorite with how the depth of fiels stands out and rings the subject forward
We learned how to shoot cover shots for different magazine. Using Photoshop, we adjusted the logo and photo for each magazine we were advertising.
The focus for this assignment was how to take photos at night. The picture often looks grainy and dark at night and so this required as much light to come in as possible without losing focus on the subject and a high ISO.
We learned about studio lighting use for outdoors and used ambient light. We used am external light and umbrella to mimic soft light and experimented with the exposure and make the background underexposed so the subject could be well lit.
Joey Lawrence has a fantastic composition of lighting and portrait skills. He focuses lighting contrast around the subject and allowing the shadows to define the models structures. The model Robert Deniro is present a state of confidence. The image displays sharply and focuses on the eyes as they should when taking portraits. Joey Lawrence has the skills I hope to acquire someday as I study photography more.
Today in class we were doing headshots with light and dark backgrounds. The professor showed us how to mask the photo and make it seem like another piece of art was a part of subject.
