This is our first week back in photography. SENIOR YEAR!! We have kicked the year off using Hasselblad Camera’s. These are medium format camera’s since World War II. These camera’s are to be held at about wast level and you are looking down at a mirror to see the image you want to shoot. These cameras also come with a focusing lens that helps you focus so that all of the detail is in focus. These camera’s are perfect for portraits, but that is difficult because the subject cant move much and the closes you can get to the subject is 4ft. So the best thing to use these camera’s are for landscapes.
This week in photography I used Lego as my subjects. I put them in different scenarios and then took three pictures of each scenario with different exposes so I could then create and HDR photograph within photoshop.
I worked on light photography this week. Working in the dark room to have a pure black background allowed us to draw and create patterns with the light. We used light sticks to write names and out line people. Then we used christmas lights to create the rain effect and the light tornado.
This week in photography we focused on panoramic photography and HDR photography. The image above is a combination of both. First I took multiple pictures over lapping one another to create this panoramic picture. Next I put it through the HDR program to give it more of the cartoon look. The second picture is an HDR picture, I did this by taking 3 pictures of the same photo while changing the aperture for all 3
This week we finalized out picture for the exhibit next week. The theme I choice for this exhibit is sharpness and blur.
This week in photography we are working with taking picture on our iPhones and editing on them. As show in the picture above. I edited this picture in snapseed. I played around with blur and contrast in the black and white.
This week in photography we worked on creating land art. Land art is using the materials around you and creating something abstract. This allows the photographer to make what ever they envision come to life. Yet there it can be challenging because the environment my make it harder to create your subject.
In photography this week we worked on taking abstract pictures. We did this by having the camera close up to our subject. Then we continued to work in photoshop to help enhance our photos, as shown in the image above.
This week in photography we worked in photoshop to create an action collage. We did this by putting the camera settings to take multiple frames and have manual focus. This allowed use to capture the fast movements of someone. Next we took the movements we liked to combine into one image as shown above.
This week in photography we worked with getting comfortable with photoshop. We learned how to cut out images and place them on another, shown in the image above. We also learned other technics to make our photographs look really good.
