My COMM 300 class has been such a valuable gift to me. Throughout the semester I’ve learned how to master my camera and edit like a pro. My final project for this course is my final photobook. Inside you’ll find some of my favorite images I’ve taken and edited. I have a wide spectrum of photos that are featured, from the old days of the wild west at Bannack to the smallest details in macro photography.
All final edits were done with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom with book designing on Adobe Indesign.
Kayla Taculog’s Photobook
This week in macro photography, I wanted to focus on textures with ordinary, everyday items. Initially the textures of both the time piece and grass intrigued me. I shot with a zoom lens (18-135mm) and a +4 macro lens filter.
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.
