What's your color? Take many photographs to emphasize your color. It should be the only, or most prominent, color in the photograph. Perspective, lighting, composition and focus must be highly considered. Upload top 3 of each color on your portfolio page...
Subject of your desire!
What is important to you...what do you what to capture in a photograph? Photograph a subject or object of choice and make the viewer really see it! Eliminate any distracting background that does not add to the photograph and only Include elements that draw attention to the main subject/object.
Critique of your images will consist of selecting the most successful one... then post processing to perfection!
Photograph the SAME SUBJECT using 10 different perspectives. Move your body after each photograph. Take pictures from above, below, side to side and at any angle. Your BEST 3 must be posted on your portfolio page in order to get credit. Please see me if you need assistance getting them there!
Soft and Dramatic... lighting.
Soft & Dramatic: Same subject different lighting. Light quality...the larger the light source, the softer and more even the light. The smaller the light source, the more directional and dramatic it is. For example, daylight/sun vs. flash. Be aware of the lighting and ask yourself if your approach adds or detracts from the mood/personality you are trying to create. Create two different moods using each lighting technique.
Can you tell which one is which (dramatic vs. soft)?
Examples of: Soft Lighting...
Examples of Dramatic Lighting...
