Learning Outcome 02 Matthew COLEMAN

"Sawney": Silhouette Photography (Horror)

For this shooting process I will be working outdoors in a natural setting with a Canon 650D equipped with a 18-55 lens.

The purpose of working within a natural setting (cave) is to essentially create and generate a frightening vibe and uneasiness surrounding the image. The use of natural lighting projecting from behind the subject will highlight the subject within the frame and will instantly draw our eyes to it.

No further lighting equipment or sources will be used within the image – Natural Lighting only.

Required Equipment: . Tripod

. Canon 650D

. 18-55mm Zoom Lens

Desired Final Image:

I am aiming to execute an incredibly detailed and fixed image; allowing natural lighting to show off its magic and prove its authenticity within photography.

"Rival" Black and White Photography w/ Colour Accents (Sci-Fi)

Capture Process:

This process requires an indoor setting with the aid of boom lights and professional lighting equipment. I will be again using a Canon 650D with an 18-55mm lens.

I will be working within a photography studio to get my hands on to professional lighting equipment and for privacy for the shoot. I intend on using professional lighting to emphasise and highlight specific areas of my subjects in mind.

I’m looking to manage the lighting through positioning the equipment in specific locations of the studio to execute the effect in mind.

I will be using a higher aperture to focus the subject(s) within the image. As well as the shutter speed and keeping the ISO low.

Required Equipment:

. Tripod

. Canon 650D

. Professional Lighting & Boom Lights . 18-55mm Zoom Lens

Desired Final Image:

I desire to encapsulate a Noir/Sci-Fi type setting through a black and white w/Colour accents technique to focus on a particular area of the image as well as other key details.

"Stature" Monumental Photography (War)

Capture Process:

For this process, I will be again venturing in the outdoors and visiting

a local cenotaph to snap an image highlighting the war and its lasting effects on the world. I will be using a Canon 650D with an 18-55mm zoom lens.

I will be using the beauty of natural lighting for this process and will hopefully meet a day with grey skies to help aid the image and its dreariness and emotion. Not quite a black and white photograph, but I would certainly appreciate a natural saturation to manipulate the image. I’ll be looking to adjust bodily positions to emphasise length and stature of the chosen monument and how mightily and grand it stands. Preferably a low angle.

Again, I will be looking to use a higher aperture to focus the subject, but also darken it especially given the weather conditions. The shutter speed may be higher and the ISO level will be as low as the image allows.

Required Equipment:

. Canon 650D

. 18-55mm Lens

Desired Final Image:

I’ll be hoping to capture a realistic and almost harrowing image that conveys a sense of sadness, emotion, death and stature to represent the importance of the monument and it’s lasting inspiration.

"Swing": Motion Photography (Coming of Age/Drama)

Capture Process:

For this process I will be outdoors once again. I will require my Canon 650D camera with the inclusion of the 18-55mm zoom lens. This will hopefully be enough to encapsulate what I have in mind.

I will again be requiring the beauty of the outdoors and its natural lighting to be the only light source of my image. Preferably around dusk or thereabouts to get a glowing and warm effect. This will hopefully add to the nature and comfort of the image.

For this image in mind, I will be requiring a faster shutter speed to define the subject that is still from the moving subject. I will lower the ISO to protect the image from becoming overly exposed to the natural lighting.

Required Equipment:

. Tripod

. Canon 650D

. 18-55mm Zoom Lens

Desired Final Image:

I am looking to encapsulate a nature of happiness, homeliness, warmth and comfort with this image. I am hoping to achieve a clear indication to a “Coming of Age” vibe with the usage of a swing and it’s surrounding vicinity.
