For this photo I used a 105.0 mm zoom with the lens and it was set to a f/5.8 aperture. This photo was originally dark but I edited the photo in lightroom to bring up the exposure. I also wanted the blue to pop more so I used the temp slider and moved it to be more of a cooler tone that way it really shows the outside light that was illuminating from the window.
Today in class we went over what makes a portrait such as lighting, focus, composition, etc. We watched videos on field view of the camera, framing a subject and establishing good communication with the model. Finally, we went off into groups to practice the skills we reviewed in class.
I took this photo in the hallway of the building below the bathroom sign. One of our challenges was finding areas with great light exposure. When I saw the diagonal line created I thought it would create good contrast.
Originally the lighting in this photo was really dark, I edited it in lightroom to set a specific tone. Out of all I like this photo because I had trouble with lighting and focus so all of my pictures came out super dark or blurry. This picture was taken in our classroom by the windows I tried to do the do’s and do not’s while taking her portraits.
Today in class we talked about lighting and how to take a proper portrait pictures and do’s and don’ts of portrait taking and differences with different lenses. We paired up into partners and we took a shot on portrait taking with our partners. we couldn’t use natural lighting but we made do with what we had. This photo was my favorite that I shot of my partner.
