Color

When taking photographs there are many things you should keep in mind. One of which is color, if you are taking a photo of something really color full how do you capture it properly? one technique I use is called HDR or High Dynamic Range. This is when you take two or more pictures of the same thing but with different focal points for each picture. After doing this you combine all of the photos you took buy layering them together. This allows you to capture every point in the image in sharp detail and also capture all of the color properly.

In my previous discussion, I was experimenting with natural light. ( http://youthvoices.net/discussion/indoor-natural-light )

In this more recent experiment, I will discuss more about portraits themselves.

In "Happy Couple," I tried to have my parents place their hands nicely together, although my mom struggled a bit. I also wanted to get on their level, and so I used a tripod to get exactly what I wanted. I had to lower the shutter speed in order to get more light in, and because I had a stable surface, the image wasn't blurred.

Indoor Natural Light

My photos were all taken with my Nikon D-90, and while I tried to change the F stop, I always found the best pictures were at 3.5 so the background was blurry and all of the focus could be on the subject. My first photo is of Delaney in the auditorium foyer next to the football field. It was about 9:00 a.m. when this picture was taken, so I had her face the light source so her whole face would be illuminated. I had my camera set on Automatic and the ISO was set to 400 because there was a lot of natural light.

Indoor/Natural Lighting

All of the above photos were taken in our school in either the morning or afternoon light. My models were Delaney and Mikaela, and I used them to experiment with natural light in our school. The two locations at which we shot that I chose to put here are the dance studio and an empty classroom with windows. Some of these pictures exemplify the best taken at that location; others are examples of poorly taken photos and the way that simply moving can drastically alter a photo.

In "Front Stairs Light Fill," I had my subject stand directly against the window, or light source. This usually results in light filling the picture, and darkening of the person. It is better to have the light reflect on the subject and not to photograph the light directly. In this picture, I had a medium ISO sensitivity, 100 shutter speed, and a 4.5 F-Stop. It would have been ether to not only change the angle of the photo, but to lower ISO and aperture as well.

Retouching old photos

Tue, 15 Oct 2013 14:52:38 +0000

To retouch this old and crinkled school picture of my dad, I first scanned it into the computer. Once I opened it in photoshop, I became aware of the multiple available tools that could help to preserve and better my picture. Primary, I used the spot healing tool brush, to get rid of any spots due to glare or wrinkles. I also used the patch tool, but it's a bit more difficult to use on smaller photos with not a lot of common area, I only used this on the burned area. Last, I slightly adjusted the histogram to make the colors pop.




Portraits

When you think of portraits, you might normally think of someone sitting in a chair, facing the camera. However, after I saw a documentary on Annie Leibovitz yesterday, as well as reading several articles about portraits, it seems to be outdated. For example, Annie Leibovitz was known for her unique ideas during photo shoots, and Antonin Kratochvil was known for his unique perspectives and angles. It has become clear that the best portraits are made from creativity. I like portraits in which the subject is not always looking at the camera.

Portraits

In my photography class, we are starting to learn about portraits, and then we are going to capture a few of our own. We read about the things that made a portrait unique. There were different things like: different levels, getting out of the 'comfort' zone, or having the person look away from the camera. Many different things can add to create a wonderful portrait.

For my portrait work, I used my tutor "Ryan." For the first photo, we entered in the bathroom, and then I led him to stand up front of the curtain of the bath. There was only a few lights, so I set the photo with black and white from the setting of my camera. Second photo was used by "out of comfort zone." He was standing on the chair and I

For my first portrait(s) I used my friend Mikey, and we just used the school yard as the setting of the photos. In my opinion they turned out really well. We had some great natural lighting outside, and there were plenty of things to use in the process of taking the photos. I didn't necessarily have a plan when we started, but after a while I started getting an idea of what I wanted to do. I used a tree as a prop, I used "out of comfort zone" when he was up in the tree, and i messed around with the focus when we was behind the fence. They turned out better than I had thought.

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.

What is in the beauty of a face? How do you capture that beauty with a camera?




What is in the beauty of a face?

Wed, 31 Aug 2011 15:09:24 +0000

It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but what is beauty? I ask myself that question and I would like to explore what makes something truly breathtaking. Through the art of a simple face, I would like to answer that question by experimenting with faces using different angles, lightings, and types of faces to find beauty. What is in the beauty of a face?
