External Flash

In this exercise, we learned how to use an external flash to balance out the exposure of the sky with the subject.

Reflectors

For this assignment, we were asked to use different reflectors to change the lighting in our photos. There are 5 different reflectors we can choose from, depending on the lighting. It was difficult today because the sun was harsh, and it was incredibly windy outside. But we were able to capture some decent photos using the diffuser, black, and silver lighting options.

I took a before and after photo of India using a diffuser. The first is without the diffuser, and the second is with.

This next photo was taken with the silver reflector. It added extra light to her face that wasn’t really necessary because of how bright it was outside already.

This last photo was used with the black reflector. I think this one was my favorite.

Close Up and Personal-Macro Photography

For this week’s assignment, I used macro tubes on my Canon 30D to take very detailed, up close photos. Most of these I took in my apartment, because one of my roommates has lots of plants. My favorite photo is the one of my friend’s eye. I like how her eyelashes are most in focus that her eyeball. I edited these photos using Lightroom.

 

Perspective of 12

For this assignment, we were asked to take 9-12 photos of the same subject, and create a collage with them. I chose to photograph one of my baseball caps. I placed them on a white sheet on my bedroom floor, and used a lamp to correct the lighting.

 

 

Depth- Deep and Shallow

In this activity, we practiced using different apertures to adjust the depth of field of the photographs. These are some of the my favorite photos that I took this week.
