Warm Days

What better to do then grab some friends a hackysack and a camera on a warm day? Nothing!

We were playing around and I was attempting to get some interesting shots of them. I learned you need to set up a shot where motion is going to happen rather than trying to follow it because it is almost impossible.


Night Drive

Here I played with different exposures as well as zoom in/out.  I also tried moving the camera while in the car moving the camera in the car but it didn’t have a very desirable effect.

Photography Finals

Next week Is the last week of the semester and that means finals. I have decided to take my daily habit project and use it to help out with my photography final. For Photography class I have chosen to create a story through a series of photos.

Here are the locations I plan to revisit for photogrpahying my final shots for Photography.

Finals finals finals…

After first getting light readings earlier in the week I took my two models and got to work. Here are the raw photos I photographed for my photography final. The final is a short story I plan to put into after affects and priemer to create a video of photos. I also plan to use video editing to give a double exposure look through transitions.

Still have more work to do but looking forward to it, photography has been a very calming process during exam week.

A little more fun

The past few weeks the CCAD photography classes have been going over portrait photography. My friend has scars on his body from when he lived back in Kenya and I thought photographing them would be a much better self portrait than just photographing his face nicely.

Alternative Photos

Here are a few other photos I didn’t end up using as well as some practiced attempts at using what I have learned about lighting and putting it to practice. I hope to have a lot stronger subject matter in my next weeks practiced photos. I also am planning to do a few self portraits as well.

I feel as though I have learned many things about how lighting and how it affects the quality of color and significance of a piece. Dramatic lighting can be intense situations and softer lighting can be a subtle conversation. The light affects the way the brain perceives the emotion and the setting of a piece.  I am training my eye to better mold the light the way I perceive it in my head.
