Portraiture

This week in photography is one of my favorite aspects of shooting photography: portraits. I love being able to capture people, whether candidly or posed, to tell a story. This week I shot a head shot, side composition, full body, group pictures (posed and candid), and group environmental. I loved the fall colors out in the landscape and tried to use a more muted-color theme in my editing.

Landscape Perspective

This week I had the opportunity to take some photos of landscape with different perspective. I love being able to take a place that I see and put and showcase my own spin and perspective. I went to the apple orchards at BYUI and had some fun looking at the awesome trees and plants.

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.

 

Landscapes

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.

Portraiture

This week in photos comprises portraits of some of my close friends. We made a trip out to Saint Anthony, Idaho and got some good lighting at golden and blue hour.

This shot was taken near the end of golden hour. I captured it with a large aperture (7.1) and attempted to create a clamshell lighting effect by using a speedlite and reflector on its gold side.

This was shot with the same reflector (gold) to hit on the model’s face. I also wanted to get the contrast of golden hour going in to blue hour creeping into the far left of the photo.
