Photography Lessons

In photography I've learned some of the important things that make up a great photo, for example: lighting, contrast, color, main focus, styles, etc. After learning this I've tried taking photos that include some of these things. I love to capture moments, whether they include people, nature, animals, or any type of thing. What inspired me to take photos was my younger brother and sister.They made me see the potential of a great photo and the moment captured forever. I like to capture people that are happy or enjoying themselves. I want to make someone smile when they see my photographs.

Richard Avedon

The photo found from "In Touch With Fragility: Richard Avedon." Faded Blurred RSS. N.p., n.d. Web. 17 Dec. 2013, was taken by Richard Avedon in 1972. In 1946, Avedon had set up his own studio and began providing images for magazines including Vogue and Life. He soon became the chief photographer for Harper's Bazaar. Avedon was always interested in how portraiture captures the personality and soul of its subject. His portraits are easily distinguished by their minimalist style, where the person is looking squarely in the camera, posed in front of a sheer white background.

A few weeks ago, our photography class experimented with portraiture using the natural light within the school. You can see my photos from this shot and my comments on the arrangement, lighting, and technique by following this link http://youthvoices.net/discussion/indoornatural-lighting . This weekend, we again experimented with portraiture, but with fewer limitations. The above six photos are from this shoot, and a discussion of each is included below.

How to take Portraits

In my photography class I read an artical called "10 Ways to Take Stunning Portraits". In this article I learned that sometimes its good to not go "by the rules" when taking portraits, and that its good th change your perspective instead of just eye level. The part of the article that I would like to try more is number 4, and thats "Experiment with Lighting" because there are a lot of ways to shoot with different lighting.

These are three of my portrait photos that I took inside the classroom with the studio setup we had. I tried on all three to get good or interesting lighting and focus on the prop that these people brought.

I have learned many things about portraiture and different techniques to use. I learned that good and interesting portraits usually break the rules. Some techniques that I think would be good while taking portraits are shooting from a different perspective, experimenting with lighting, shooting candidly, and introducing a prop. The portrait that I attached was using the technique of shooting candidly. I liked this technique because the photo tells you a lot about the person in one shot.

I photographed two of my friends for our portrait photography project. The three different techniques that I used were different perspectives, shooting candidly, and eye contact. In the first two photos I am shooting from different perspectives and in the third photo I am shooting candidly. In the first photo my friend was on her jungle gym and she was hanging upside down. I took the photo by crouching down on the ground and looking up at her. In my second photo I altered my perspective and I took the picture by looking down at my friend. In my third photo I was shooting candidly.

These are photographs of my sister. The first one she is out of her comfort zone, she's kind of laying on the bench and looking up. The second one is of her making eye contact with the camera and she is smiling. And the third she is not making eye contact with the camera. The background of these images is nice and green. I think they turned out pretty well.

I learned about portrait photography. I also learned that we don't have to be fake in portraits, we can be ourselves, as shown by Stephen here. Portraits should show you for who you are, not who you want to be.




My Best Photography

Throughout this semester, I learned a lot of different concepts in photography. I also discovered one of my favorite ways to shoot is through portraits. Portrait shots always turn out different than planned, but that is what I enjoy most about it. While shooting the "Book Worm" photo, I played with angles. It gave an impression like she was standing up and I was shooting from above her, but in reality she was laying down and I was above her.

For these photos I tried to play with different backgrounds, focus on certain body parts, and shoot candid shots. For the first photo, I tried shooting the photo with an interesting and creative background. This background ended up being a pool, I had my subject lean over the pool edge and I took the shot. I like how the water reflects off the pool surface as well in this. The second photo I tried focusing just on my subject's smile, and I also like the extra flower between her teeth. This adds something interesting to the photo, and adds just a bit more color.

I find that taking photos of people can be a lot more interesting and can tell a story even more so than anything else. In each of these three photos, I wanted to tell a story. I felt that a series of photos would tell a story a little more than a single one. I had my model put on her glasses and didn't tell her I was taking the photo. I thought that this would make it look more natural. In the candid photo of the model looking down, she was walking towards me and asking a question. I find that taking photos even when they're not posed can give you the actual photo you want.

While shooting portraits, I discovered that I have an interest in a very simplistic kind of look. Nothing too harsh, or vibrant is what I go for. I like the simplicity or natural flow of things during a Photoshoot. I went for different angles of her, also with the intention of playing around with eye contact. When it comes to props, I had her in motion with her jacket. I don't like anything too posed when it comes to specific props, so catching her in motion gave me a good shot. If I choose to keep any photos in color, I keep them with very light or basic lighting.

For my first photo, I had my friend Quiana, looking above the camera and I was trying to make her laugh so it wouldn't be a forced picture. She was wearing a white scarf so I positioned her behind the white door so there wouldn't be clashing of colors. The next photo of Quiana is where she is laying on the ground looking into the camera and smiling. I really like this photo because this is how she is always acting. The poster board behind her is something that she made showing all her favorite things, so I felt like that would be a really good prop. The last photo is a photo of thirds.
