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.

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.

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


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


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.

This week for landscapes I went out to Moody, Idaho and St. Anthony to catch some golden hour, blue hour, and sunset shots. In the first two shots I used the Auto Exposure Bracketing program on my Canon T4i. In post, I selected the picture exposed at 0 and masked in the sky of the picture exposed at -2. Doing this gave me the opportunity to turn an everyday shot into a extraordinary scene. The last picture I captured in St. Anthony during blue hour and set my camera on a long exposure to get the smooth, flowing water.
