Creative Images- Bannack Ghost Town

This week my class and I had the privilege to visit and explore Bannack Ghost Town, Montana.  Here we had the opportunity to shoot portraits of models, items, and landscapes using professional lighting equipment given to us by Brigham Young University-Idaho. This part of the project was my favorite because we had the opportunity to use Photoshop skills to construct creative shots and images.

Macro Images

This week’s project was fun to complete. We studied how to create macro images and were given the task on taking some macro shots of everyday objects. I was able to take very good shots of a small pocket-watch. I used my iPhone as the ground layer so I could get a little bit of that reflective mirroring in my shots. I also took some photos of a leaf and a fruit with a water drop on them using macro lenses for a 58 mm lens. The biggest challenge for me though was taking the shot of the ice cube on fire. I had to douse the ice cube with hand-sanitizer  and wait for the flames to spread along the ice. It turned out pretty well if I do say so myself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Perspective of 12

This week for our class assignment, we had the challenge to take 12 photos of one object from 12 different angles. Since I was in the Disney mood, I decided to take photos of the rose from Beauty and the Beast. I took these photos on a theater stage in complete darkness using only a few LED lights and speed lights. We were also challenged to add an online texture to one of our photos.

 

I used these photos for my texture challenge

 

And the final product came out as this.
