Go to a public event and photograph it. You may go to football game, amusement park, local fair, wedding etc. to create your images. If you photograph people make sure you get their facial expressions!As always, have fun!
I went to a local event called “Shakespeare in the Park” and photographed the performance. I did not want to disturb the actors so I used a 100-400 mm lens and my C-sensor camera which as a magnification factor of 1.6. I could walk around in the background and watch the action and photograph to my hearts content.
I went to the Farmer’s Market last night and walking back to my car I saw this light. I got the idea to put a frame around it to block the light and then I decided to mask the upper part of the frame. Then I added a black layer to it which I also partially masked using a soft brush. The hard edge of the frame and the soft edge of the black form a nice contrast.
This image seemed to me an idea image which has some more potential and it needs more work. Art is always art in progress!
Happy week-end and happy photographing!
An old man walking his two dogs in front of a building in an empty street. I converted this image to black and white except the part inside the frame. The frame definitely draws attention tot he subject and works as a “picture in a picture.’
Enjoy and happy photographing!
Frames separate, they work like walls. The questions is: Can they be overcome? In this image I created a nice 3D effect by “erasing part of the frame.
Enjoy and keep on making images!
I lowered the the saturation level outside the frame. Enjoy and keep on creating great images!
You can do this exercise on a computer using Photoshop or other programs or you can do it manually on a regular print. What I ask you to do is to draw a square around your subject and observe the difference a simple square makes in an image. If you are a Photoshop user you can also change the inside or outside of the square. As always, enjoy and observe!
I photographed this rose early in the morning. I darkened the part outside the square!
I was standing in front of an office when i discovered several paint spots. a perfect opportunity for this assignment. You never know when a good opportunity comes up. Have your camera ready at all times!
Enjoy and keep on photographing!
I discovered these glasses at a local bar where I was doing some commercial work. The interesting fact about this assignment (and others) is that when you start looking for “three” you will find them almost anywhere.
Keep on looking and photographing!
I photographed this hinge with the three nails at the Mission San Juan Bautista, CA. Enjoy and keep on photographing!
Repetition is a valuable tool for creating images and so is the number “3”. People say, they come in “three,” three corners form the triangle, in the church people talk about the “Trinity” etc. This weeks exercise is about “three”
This is part of a door at the mission San Juan Bautista. Enjoy and happy photographing!
