The lighting for this particular shot was high. Only one source of light was available which makes the bottom of the flower look darker. I also shot this from a low angle so I would see the flower bloom. I intend to fit the frame, but it can be tighter since there is empty space on the top of the flower.
The lighting on this picture was placed to the right on a high angle giving the flowers a more dramatic look.
Today in class we were learning to shoot indoor light. We were learning the difference between using soft boxes which provide more of a cloudy day quality of light and constant lights which are more straight on. This photo was taken with a constant light from the side of the flowers, i love that the dark background gives it a gloomy feeling but also allows the red to pop.
These are my favorite photos of today’s class because I love the softness of the yellow and pink in the flowers with the white back ground. I choose the second picture because the positioning, the flowers look dead so I laid them on the table to take those photos. I like the last one because of the dark flowers against the black back ground.
I wanted to create a dramatic shot which the light facing up words toward the flower. Creating a Warm feeling on the sunflower. Also to show the rich yellow and Green color.
I believe this is my strongest photo for the week because it displays the flower directly in the middle and highlights the orange of the pedals.
So today We were taking awesome studio photos with FLOWERS ! I enjoyed using the shadow boxes to help bring out the light on the object. I chose to put my favorite TWO photos because at 1st i had 12 (lmfao) but this is my understanding of light and dark pictures !!!!
This is my favorite picture because I used two flowers one that is very dominant in color and the other is more calm in color. I like this because of me focusing on the main flower and showing a blur behind it as if it’s telling a story and the lighting is great because it isn’t too harsh and the captures what is happening behind the dominant flower.
This is my #1 photo because I like the way the red flower is coming from the bottom. if I can put this photo into words then I would say that It’s almost like the red flower represents life and it is coming up from the darkness. The blue also gives the flower a nice contrast between the two colors.
I choose this as my best natural lighting photo because all my other pictures had her in the hallway with the light above/behind her creating a nice even light. I thought it was interesting to have the opposite and have the bar of light casing a light shadow her face and body.
