REFLECTION: For this project we had to show off our day at Serra. For my project I took genetic pictures such as; my classroom for first period, the door of my second period and of benches that I see on my way to sixth period. The ones I am sharing with you are the pictures I think are interesting. The 'conquistador court' sign is something I have never noticed until I had this project. As I was recreating my walk from second period to third period I was looking around for different things that I had never seen the sign was one of those things I have not seen before. What I struggled was with the lighting because it was very sunny outside the picture got washed out or the letters were not in sharp focus. In Photoshop I was able to pass the burn tool on it and get the letters a bit more clear. The second picture is another one on my way to third period. I have a friend that waits for me in front of that fence I tried to take the picture in a different perceptive than just the bars in vertical position. As I was positioning myself I saw the lock and it looked pretty interesting, it seems to have a face and it looks very different from the locks I have seen. For the last picture I chose the one of my fourth period teacher's cup that contains pennies. The cup was too adorable but I had to take a picture of the backside of the cup because it is something I don't see often and it seems better as it demonstrates my teacher perfectly as his cup states: 'You are my best friend' the pug to its owner. Although I think my teacher has more of a father son relationship rather than a friend relationship.
REFLECTION: For this pictures I had no idea how to make them look great it was my first time manipulating all of the settings I was difficult because I don't think I have any stability in my hands to hold the camera thus most pictures were not in sharpe focus. The second time Julie and I went to light room we were able to be proactive as we took the settings from the first photo shoot and we now knew how to position ourself so so the glare wouldn't reflect on our glasses. The first time in the light room was better because we had assistances and they helped block off the direct light that made a glare on Julie's glasses however we were more comfortable working it out together without much people around.
