When I first walked into this class on the first day of school I had some idea of how a camera works manly because I took a video class last year. So, I thought how different can it be? Turns out that in my opinion it's harder to set the setting on a camera then on a video camera. So, in this class I learned a lot about the camera settings (still not the best at it) but, I improved. I also Learned a lot about composition, so through out the trimester my composition got better and better. We also learned photoshop. We learned to photoshop a car and we did the school context assignment along with more photoshop assignments. Another thing with photoshop we learned basic edits and how to make our photos look even better! Finally we learned about different lighting set-ups. So, for my last photo assignments I payed a lot of attention to the lighting for my still life, candy, and macro photos. So in conclusion I became a better photographer then when I first walked in on the first day.
As you can see up above are the first photos I took in this class.
Now below this are some of the last photos I took. You can see the difference in my last photos I get better at editing and better with the camera settings.
For this photoshop project we took multiple pictures of ourselves in the same location and then we edited them together.
For this photo project we shot portraits in a 3 point lighting and a window lighting. Then we photoshopped the pictures together.
For this project I decided to do macro. I took pictures of my band music and my books. I had to do some editing with the white balance.
For this project I decided to do light painting. Light Painting was hard and took a lot of time but I think the pictures turned out very well.
For our next photoshop project we did a panoramic. We shot a couple pictures of an area then we edited them together to make a wide shot.
This week I decided to take pictures of my marching band uniform and my star wars figures for still life. It was hard to get the right lighting. The light I used was very yellow, so in editing I had to fix the white balance.
For this project we went around the school and took normal pictures of the school. I decided to take a picture of the band hallway. Then I photoshopped Star Wars characters into the hallway. Then it became the Star Wars hallway!
For this project I have decided to take pictures of nature. I went on a hike and it was the perfect opportunity to take nature photos. I did some editing to the pictures. Mostly to just boost the vibrance.
