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.

Bannack Portraits

This week has been my favorite part of the semester: the Bannack photo expedition. I had the opportunity to go to Bannack, Montana and shoot themed portraits and fine art photography. It was fun to learn more how to direct models, shoot with different types of light set-ups and modifiers, and learn from observing others. Here are the portraits that I edited in Photoshop and Lightroom.

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.

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.

 

 

It’s All About Dat Perspective

With this week’s theme being perspective of 12 I knew I wanted to highlight a person that has had a huge impact on my life here at college. I was inspired by my friend, Aven, and wanted to implement different angles and dramatic lighting to photograph her. I used a Canon T4i with a speedlite to capture good contrast with lighting.

With the textures, I added a cracked, sand layer to the model’s face and decreased the opacity to 75%.

Lastly, here is a collage of the rest of the perspective of twelve photos.
