Photography class is in session

For many more weeks now I have learned lots of new things! My photography class has really pushed me to pursue what I love doing and I couldn’t ask for a more entertaining and learning environment. Recently in class we have been asked to do a time lapse video, halloween(for extra credit) and a students choice project.

Time-lapse photography is an interesting technique that records a scene or object that has a slow state-of-change and turns it into a video that plays back in high speed. The easiest way to do it is to have your camera stationed on a stable area like a tripod or anything else that will make it secure. So i chose to take multiple pictures of my friend drawing a picture of some flowers from an angle so i could capture his hand movements and the sketching while he was drawing. I have not yet finished putting the video together yet but i will have it up soon!
Pumpkins

Halloween turned out great this year! It’s always a great time to get the family together and see everyone dressed up in there cute little costumes! For my extra credit I took a picture of some little pumpkins that just got into the spirit a little bit of both fall and halloween because its that time of the year. What i decided to do was focus mainly on the front pumpkin and have the others blurred out. After that I put it into Lightroom and Brightened it up a little bit and then added some clarity to make it sharper.

Grace Students Choice is always my favorite because that is when I get the chance to experiment with photoshop a little bit more. In this photo I learned a little more about how to softened the face and brighten her eyes. I also learned how to sharpen the details through photoshop by creating a new layer and doing what is called a High Pass filter. The High Pass filter sharpens and brings out more detail making the image more elaborate and well….Awesome!!
