We had an assignment in our object lighting class to photograph chocolate with a studio strobes. I chose to shoot Chick-Fil-A brownies because I love the way they taste and they have icing on the top of them which makes them really pretty. For the setup I used a Farrell light slanted in the back and an additional speedotron light on the right side of the table to get more texture in the brownie.
For this assignment we were required to photograph a cell phone against a reflective background. I chose to use silver foil wrapping paper for underneath the phone and as the background. I used 3 mini hot lights and a green and yellow gel. One of the minis lit the phone itself, one mini with the green gel behind the background, and the other mini with a yellow gel pointing up to light the bottom of the foil paper yellow. I really like the effect that the light on the foil paper gave. Here is what I came up with!
For this assignment we were required to shoot a fruit or vegetable. I chose peppers because the colors of them really caught my eye. For the lighting we were required to experiment with light writing. I used the broncolor light brush for the lighting and left the shutter open for four seconds at f/8. During this time you just shine the light on different parts of the image to your liking! I hope you love the colors as much as I do!
While in New York City for the PDN Photo Expo my digital class had an assignment to shoot a panoramic. I chose to do mine at Central Park. For this panoramic I combined 52 images together using Photomerge in Photoshop. It was a long process, but I really like the results. Let me know what you think.
This past summer I had a Photojournalism class. For this class we had to shoot and turn in at least two pictures a week for our Weekly points! Here are a few that I used for my Weeklies. Hope you like them!
It's late at night and I can't sleep. Just thought I would post one of my favorites that not many people have seen. I love this image because of the beauty of the light on the trees. This photo was shot with my Mamiya 645 on TMAX 100 film.
I would like to personally thank Hannah Sheffield for being my model for so many of my projects that I have had. Love you so much!
I recently posted an image from a photo safari in Downtown Asheboro that I took with my Object Lighting Class. Here are some more images that I shot that day with some editing done to them in Photoshop. Hope you enjoy!
Last Wednesday my Object Lighting Class took a trip to downtown Asheboro to go on a Photo Safari. The goal was to get images that wouldn't be recognized for what it is. For a couple of the photos I took I left them out of focus. This was one of my favorites because of the colors.
