White Portraits

This project was very similar to the last one. Except in this one we had to have a pure white background instead of black. To do that we had to have more light going into the camera which we did using Shutter speed. We had “models” stand in front of white sheets of paper and toke random pictures of them. We used ISO and Manuel to make each picture look different and unique. It was easy to find friends to take cool/silly pictures with. It was also very easy to edit the pictures using Adobe Photoshop. It was difficult to have a white background without shadows because we don’t have a professional studio or professional lights.














We messed around with the ISO and Shutter Speed to make sure it absorbed enough light so the background was black but the person in the picture could still be seen. What worked was things like Threshold, Vibrance and Curves in Photoshop to make the pictures look like comics or have very exaggerated black and white lines. What didn’t work was that, it was hard to find people and time to take the pictures.
