Photo 2 Personal Vision and Studio Lighting

This week, our class worked in the darkroom, processed film and utilized the studio lights to deepen our personal vision projects.

“I’ve tried to do my own shoot in my house using lamp lights and as I was shooting,  I know it would have worked better with studio lights, but the point is to have good lighting regardless.  Lighting is important to capture the subject at its best.  Maybe you want to show shadows or make  half of the subject’s face darker than the other.  Working today with the studio lighting was honestly really fun and I know with the backdrop and lighting, my roll came out beautifully.  My subject was very easy to work with and made everything flow perfectly.”

“Developing is a lot of sweaty work, but its worth it when you see your art piece that you’ve worked so hard on.”

“Today I was working on my first “official” print on a specific photo.  I had to do split filter printing, and I used three different filters!  I printed with beautiful highlights and shadows using this technique.  It was seriously an awesome experience!”

“Today I got a lot accomplished within two hours!  I struggled with developing a clean contact sheet, but I think I eventually accepted the fact that some photographs were just over exposed.  But today I also was able to do something I have never been able to at Fashion, which was to shoot with the studio set.  Six of my amazing friends came after a long day to shoot with me.  It is amazing to see how my friends support me.  They don’t know how much I truly appreciate it.”
