Photobook

I cannot express how grateful I am to have been part of this class. I have learned from one of the best mentors ever, met so many brilliant minds, and have had the chance to boost my creative skills.

I am proud to present my photobook, a collection of my best work throughout this entire semester. I used Adobe InDesign to design all the parts of the book and then used Walmart’s online photobook to create my book. Enjoy!

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.

Motion & Depth

This week as part of my digital imaging class, we focused on practicing shots including depth and motion. I’ve posted four photos to showcase what i have practiced.

 

Depth

I was doing a portrait shoot for a YouTuber when I decided to do this shot. I had my camera settings on an F-stop of 5.6 with a shutter speed of 1/50 and a ISO of 200.  I had a speed-light over to my left with a LED  light shining continuously in his face. Once I took the photo, I took it into Photoshop to darken the image, add more contrast, and put on a black and white filter.

One morning the earth decided to randomly open up it’s salt shaker and snow all over our college campus. I thought maybe this would be a good time to head over to the gardens and get a few shots. I was behind a tree when i took this shot.  I had a F-stop of 5.6 with a shutter speed of 1/200.  The ISO was 400. After I took the picture, I went into Photoshop and tried the best I could to brighten the image. I added just a little of cold temperature and finally had my photo.

Motion

This was the best I could accomplish for a freeze motion capture. At this point the snow was falling down quickly. I had my shutter speed at 1/200 with an aperture of 5.6. My ISO was at 800. This was the best shot I took with the snow flakes frozen in falling motion.

Motion blur was by far the hardest concept for me. I decided to keep it simple and see if I could snag a photo of  a car passing by.  I had an F-stop of 11 and a shutter speed of 1/200. The ISO was at 200. I took the photo into photoshop and darkened the image so it wasn’t too bright.

Bannack Best- Creative

As my last project from our Bannack Excursion, I was to photograph three creative photos- one levitation, one abstract, and one conceptual.

For my levitation picture, I shot a photo of myself being thrown from one room into another. I set up the shot by capturing two photos, one of the empty hallway, and another of me posing on a stool. Inside Photoshop, I blended the two photos together to create the final product.

For my abstract picture, I wanted to go for a Halloween theme picture. I took several photos of my hand in different positions around a door and blended the images to create a monstrous-like photo. I used a cracked floor texture to add detail to the arms.

For my conceptual image, I took a photo of a cowboy at a bar. The way he was positioned reminded me of a person thinking about the decisions he was making in life.
