Getting Close

In this task we had to take close up pictures of objects, trying to see the little details inside. What worked well was taking close up pictures of flowers and plants, because you could see all the little details. Challenges were finding other things that weren’t flowers. If I had the equipment I would like to photograph an orchid because it has the most detail. Here is the link to my 10 close up photos. Finally, down below is my favorite picture.


In this project we had to take pictures of objects or people in action .Then we had to edit the photos into a stack in Adobe Photoshop. If I were to give anyone tips I would say to find a very appealing or cool object that is easy to focus on, and not have a background that is easy to focus on. If I could I would like to photograph basketballs because that is my favorite sport and it would be fun to photograph. Here is the link to my Action photos.


In this project we had to find places in which we could put objects in the middle of them and make the objects the main focus of the picture. In the rule of thirds we had to put the object in a certain place on the grid of the camera and in this project we had to do it on our own and find out where to angle our camera, and where to put the objects to make them the main focus. Some of the challenges were finding something that I could take a picture through, while having an object to focus on. Here is the link to some of my photos!

Rule of thirds

In this project we had to take pictures with a rule, called the rule of thirds. Personally, I lined my objects up with the right line. What worked was using objects that are small and putting nothing behind them. What didn’t work was having an object but with lots of stuff behind it. At first I thought it was dumb but once I started to take pictures I realized the point. Here is the link to my rule of thirds photo folder.


We had to go in front of a black paper and take different pictures using a light to brighten the background. What worked was shining the light close to the person because it was very dark. What didn’t work was having low settings. Below is a picture I took of a friend. Here is a link to all of my photos.


We had to stand in front of a huge white paper and take pictures of each other while posing. We then had to download them and edit their brightness, contrast, hue and different colors. What worked was putting up the brightness and lowering the contrast, what didn’t work was switching the color while keeping the background white. This is the link to my white background photos.
