I really enjoyed this project. I don’t have a zoom lens and I was out of town for the weekend so it was a little difficult, but I really liked the creativity that I was allowed to use. I tried more new lighting techniques and overall had a really good time.
I think this is one of the most difficult projects so far this semester. I really wanted to do something unique with the lighting in my portraits but I think I just ended up messing them up. I’m still getting used to the settings on my camera but I really like photoshop. I was able to edit out blemishes on my friends faces and add light and more interesting elements. I spent most of my time editing, but I think I’ll stick to natural light next time.
So the object that I chose to get perspective on is my record player. I love this object because It’s one of my prized possessions. Since it isn’t one of the newer players that you see in stores now, there were a lot of interesting components to it that I haven’t noticed before. I used my canon T6 and placed the record player on the floor of my apartment living room by the window for natural light. I mostly used the shallow techniques we learned about last week. For the masking overlay, which is in the individual picture of the needle,I used a chemical burn and masked it to look almost like a soft sun flare. I really enjoyed this project and though it was really unique.
Here is a thumbnail of the chemical burn texture:
The first two pictures I used F 10 to get the focus smaller, and rested the camera on a desk. The second two were my depth photo’s that I took while standing on a chair so I could get a more interesting point of view. I also used a F 22 for these as well. Flash was used for all of the picture except the third one with the Christmas lights.
