Playing Around!

   I am posting a couple of fun photographs I took while in my Studio Lightning Class last semester. They may look like basic photos, but they took a lot of work, time , and patience to shoot.

   The water drop was set up using a IV Drip to regulate the drops so I could time my shots when the drops hit the water. That didn’t work at all but because of the timing of the drip I ended up with the exact shot I wanted.

   The egg photo was set up after a hundred or so shots moving the light to different positions and heights. I wanted to capture not only the shadows but the light that captured the shadows also.

Trends in Software Video Collage

This was another assignment in my Trends in software class. We duplicated a photo on a phone or tablet. I choose to use my tablet. This was a fun but frustrating assignment. I understand why there are so many takes on a TV and movie sets. I used the Carquinez bridge and I used a collectable model from my collection. This was a fun assignment that was created on my tablet, and we then made a video on how we created our photo. https://youtu.be/Hp-A_pXXJeY

Photo Collage

Photo CollagePlane Crash

I did this photo collage as a assignment for my Trends in Software class. We were to recreate a photo from a well known photographer, and I choose Steve Mcghee.His photo is on the right, mine is on the left. I was required to use my own photos, so I used the Carquinez bridge and I used a collectable model from my collection. This was a fun assignment that was created on my tablet, and we then made a video on how we created our photo.

 Hello all, hope you are all doing well on this middle of the week day.

Here is another photo I edited in Photoshop. Photoshop is such an awesome program once you embrace it and begin to learn it’s amazing capabilities. As an art student I am learning more every day beyond just correcting my photographs.

Having a great model is also important, and Karen Raychel is just that, a natural in front and behind the camera.
