1. Individual Side Composition:
For this assignment, the subject had to be on the side of the frame, at least 20 ft away from objects in the background, with the image set at a low aperture. After taking a variety of photographs with the subject in different poses, I opted to showcase this image.
2. Individual Head & Shoulders:
In these portraits, I photographed the subject’s head and shoulders. I liked having my subject against the gold door; it worked well with her blond hair and tan skin. As for camera settings, the aperture was set to 1.8 to create a bokeh effect, though the subject was close to the background.
3. Individual Environmental:
In these Environmental images, I decided to photograph my roommate as she was in the Pottery lab throwing a bowl. The lighting inside the studio was surprisingly well and the background helps to show the viewers what occurs in the lab.
4. Portrait Enhancement Edits:
For this portrait, I used Photoshop to enhance the subject. I started with using the Patch tool to remove minor blemishes, then a light sweep of Airbrush to even out the skin tone. Last thing I did was brighten and sharpen her eyes.
5. Color Replacement:
The assignment for this image was to select an article of clothing and change the color with the Replace Color Brush. After a few tries, I found that working with darker colors yields the best results. The hardest part of replacing color was working around the finer details, such as the subject’s hair.
