For this project we were told to tell a story to photographs. My bud Nick and I decided that we were going to capture people reconnecting after long periods of time apart and what better place to do that then Yvr's international arrivals hall. We wanted to document the people reconnecting with out them knowing because we were afraid that they would act un-naturally if the were aware that they were being photographed. This made this project extra difficult, the most difficult part in my opinion was ensuring that each photo was properly focused especially since many pictures were shot from the hip. As you may notice in the photographs i was not always 100% successful in keeping all pictures perfectly in focus. I found that it was the children that had the most dramatic reaction to seeing their loved ones, it was very interesting seeing nervous face waiting for there loved one turn to joyous faces as soon as they saw their loved ones. In the end it did not turn out as well as i hoped but i think we still got decent results.
For this project we were told to take a few items that we use on a daily basis or that are part of are life and photograph them. In my opinion this picture tell people a lot about my interests and my hobbies. Included in my picture are items i use every day such as my laptop and phone, but there are also objects that represent my hobbies such and my model airplane as well as the mini hockey stick. Another important object that is included in this photograph is the boomarang it represent my travels to Australia which has so far been my favourite place to visit.
For this project we were told to research a photography technique, My friend Nick and I decided to choose HDR photography. We did some research and figure out that HDR photography involves talking an underexposed picture and properly exposed picture and an over exposed picture. The camera that we used was a Nikon D5100, it has a setting called bracketing which take's an under and over exposed picture as well as the properly exposed picture. We found out that it is important to keep the camera still for all 3 pictures or the photo did not turn out. To put the 3 pictures together we used photoshop. This was the result. The first picture of the stairs was purposely over edited to show some of the cool effects you can achive using this technique.
For this project we were told to take 80 different pictures of the same objects, using different angles and focal point was a must for this project because you dont want all your pictures to look the same. In the end the templete only had room for 64 pictures so i choose my best 64 pictures and this was the result.
For this project we were required to take multiple pictures of an action sequence and mask them togther using Photoshop, most of this project was done in Photoshop after the pictures were taken. I took advantage of the masking and layers tools. This picture did not work out as well a i would have like because all 5 pictures were too close and overlapped, this was because there was limited space on the trampoline for Nick to complete the flip.
