Super 5!

This semester in Comm 300 has been such an adventure. From post-production editing, lighting techniques, composition, to creating my own style, I’ve learned an incredible amount. Below are some of my favorite photos I’ve taken through the semester.

In this photo a speedlite was used to capture a chiaroscuro lighting effect. I wanted to use moody lighting to tell the story of taking oneself out of the dark and looking up to the light.

KaylaTaculog-Whole New World

During our macro photography week I used a close up filter (+4) to capture the details of this yellow bell pepper and LED light for continuous lighting.

KaylaTaculog-Anne With an 'E'

At Bannack, Montana, I was able to capture this shot using an einstein strobe with reflector.

KaylaTaculog-Light

Also taken at Bannack, Montana, this shot was taken to feature the lamp by creating a small amount of bokeh.

KaylaTaculog-Warmth

This shot was taken near the end of golden hour in Saint Anthony, Idaho. I used a speedlite and a reflector (gold side) to emulate clamshell lighting.

Themed Image Series

As a themed series I wanted to capture not only glass, but the reflections of the sky in the window panes. I was inspired to take these photos in Bannack, Montana to reflect what I feel windows do: give us a perspective of something else. All edits were done in lightroom–mostly to add light and more brightness to the images–to follow the theme of windows shedding new perspective and light.

Bannack Best–Portraits

This week was definitely an adventure. Going to Bannack, Montana with the comm 300 class taught me a lot about my personal creativity, camera settings and new lighting techniques. In these individual shots I used different lighting sources and techniques. I used a Canon T4i with a 18-135mm lens and Tokina 11-16mm lens.
