Head and Shoulders:
Full Body Portrait:
Part 2: Enhancements
Image 1: My roommate, Elena. I cleaned up some of the acne on her face.
Image 2: I significantly whitened my Dad’s teeth. The lighting made his teeth look really yellow.
Portraits, where to even begin. It is difficult to get people in front of the camera in a way that they are comfortable. The side composition was difficult because I had so much light it was difficult to do at a large aperture because my subject was getting blown out. Personally I found it a struggle to do the full body portrait because I kept wanting to focus on the face.
Group things: I am glad I had the opportunity to work with guys as well as girls, and even them together. It was an interesting experience to work with both. The first group one I just told my brother and his girlfriend to wait for a second while I figured out the light (Thank you Brother Miller, this totally worked) and they started making jokes and I snapped one while they weren’t looking. The second was a little more difficult, trying to work with so much light and some really patchy shade.
The Individual Environmental is an image of a baby (18 months) looking at all the toys in my grandpa’s toy room, and I had to turn my ISO up quite a bit because there was not very much light in that room.
The next few portraits were some friends and family. See the descriptions above for my edits.
