Intro to Digital Photography P1-07 My place for all creative photos

Most of the Pictures I take are mostly nature and people photos. I take my pictures by using different types angles and viewpoints trying to capture the best view. I do edit my pictures only to bring out the brightness and boldness of the photo. I believe that photography is important because it captures the world and the people of the world so that future generations can look back at the world the way we lived

Final Project 2017

Dessert

The pictures on the top are the after and the ones on the bottom are the before. I took these pictures because they were cookies which are a dessert and they were the only type of dessert that I could get a hold on and take pictures of it. The story with these pictures is in the beginning the bag is closed, then it opens and there are a few cookies spilled out and then in the last picture a few cookies are missing. The edits I made in Photoshop which are the ones on the very top were that I cropped it. I used the burn and dodge tool to lighten and darken some areas of the image and I also added a warm filter over the images. The edits I made in light room which are the ones in the middle were I added more exposure, increased saturation. I also increased highlights and shadows.

Spirals

The pictures on the top are the after and the ones on the bottom are the before. I took these pictures for spirals because I thought it would be something unique and different. The story with these pictures were that it shows very close up then it backs off and widens and shows you something new in the picture. The edits I made to the Photoshop image is the one in the top right and bottom right is that I used the burn, dodge, and sharpen tool to lighten and darken areas of the image and added a red filter. The edits I made to the light room one which is the one on the left I increased the light, exposure and saturation because the before image was dark and had no color

Couples

The first three are after and the last three are the before pictures. The edits I made on them was that I decreased the lighting a little bit and also used the burn and dodge tool to brighten the people and darken the background to make them stand out more.

Micro/Macro: Extreme Details
Composition: Framing

Winter Break Photos

This picture is Christmas lights across Bisbee. What I did to the photo is that I mainly used local adjustments like graduated filter and radial filter. I used these tools mainly on the lights and on the street to bring the brightness out of them.
This picture is of my aunt in Bisbee underneath the same Christmas lights. The adjustments I used was radial filter to make my aunt stand out more. I also used graduated filter on the background to bring out the contrast.
This picture is of my cousin in Bisbee near the same lights, and she is using a sparkler wand. What I did to the photo was I used radial filter on her and on the wand to make it stand out more and to add some clarity. I used global adjustments to the background to make it clearer.

Final Semester Project

The picture on the left is the before photo and the one on the right is the after photo. The exposure of the two are very different. I edited the exposure on the after photo to make the flashlight look more like a sun. The before picture has no editing. The after photo had editing made to it. I mainly boosted up the highlights and the exposure to make the flashlight look brighter. The composition style that I was going for was rule of thirds and viewpoint. I went with these composition styles because I wanted to capture the light from underneath it and to get it on the rule of third lines. The inspiration for this photo was I was trying to capture light in a different way than being at ground level, I was trying to go for a different viewpoint.
One on the left is the before, one on the right is the after photo. These photos are a flashlight shining above a cup with tea in the them. The exposure of the before photo is that it has no changes made, it was taken how it was. The exposure on the after photo did have some changes made to it as you can see the brightness of the flashlight was bumped up a little bit. The editing on the after picture had changes mostly made to the contrast and exposure but I also made changes to the highlights and whites. The composition style of the picture is experimentation. The reason for taking this photo was, from the previous photo I was trying to capture a different angle and viewpoint.
The picture one the left is before and on the right is after. These pictures are cups with tea in them a flashlight is shining through them. The exposure of the picture in the after picture changes so that you can see the brightness of the light beam shining through the cups. The editing that I made to the picture is that I made changes to the tint, exposure, contrast, and blacks and shadows to make the light beam stand out more. The composition style is leading lines. The inspiration for this picture is that I wanted to see how light looked like through cups at different angles.
The one on the left is the before and the one on the right is the after photo. These photos are a row of cups with a flashlight at the end of it shining through all of the cups, it gets darker the further it goes.The before picture has no editing and was taken how it was. The after picture had editing mostly it was the highlights, shadows, whites, and blacks were the things I mostly edited, and it was cropped. The composition type was leading lines. The inspiration for this picture was I wanted to see how far light would go through these cups with tea in them, as you can see the light gets darker the farther it goes.
As the photos previously shown, left is before and right is after. The pictures cups and a flashlight as shown in the previous pictures. The exposure of the picture was boosted up so that you can see the shining in the cups. The editing that was made to the picture mainly changes to highlights, whites, exposure, and contrast were the main changes. The composition style is leading lines. The inspiration for taking this picture is I wanted to see how the flashlight bounced off each class.
The before picture is the one on the left and on the right is after. The picture is one of my ornaments on my Christmas tree which is Olaf. The exposure of this picture was changed so that you can see the Christmas light shining behind Olaf. The main edits that were made to the picture were exposure, highlights, tint and temperature, contrast, and whites, I also had cropped the picture. The composition style is rule of thirds. The inspiration for the picture was since it is Christmas time I tried to capture light in Christmas time.
The photo of the tree on the left is before and the one on the right is the after photo. Since it was Christmas time I thought if were doing a project on light why not take a picture of Christmas lights. The exposure of the picture on the before was very dark. On the after the exposure was boosted up big time so you can really see the brightness of the lights. The editing that I mostly made to the photo was exposure contrast whites and highlights so that I can really bring out the brightness in the tree and lights. The composition style of the photo is rule of thirds. The inspiration for this photo was as I said earlier it was Christmas time and I wanted to capture a picture of Christmas

What I got from this project is that it can be really fun taking these type of pictures where I get to pic what type of topic I want to shoot on. I took these pictures by using my iPhone camera and also using a real camera. I edited my pictures by using adobe bridge and the filters on my phone. Most of the pictures minimum to no editing. I used some composition styles and no composition styles. I mostly used rule of thirds and shooting portrait pictures. While I was taking these pictures my family and I had a lot of fun both being in the pictures and taking the pictures.
