For portrait class I had to design two collages. I went for a look that would be suitable for an 10×20 album.

 I really enjoy the previsualization aspect of this assignment. Hope you like.

I recently got in the studio and shot with the Photogenic monolight. I am still learning, but I felt  I came away with a few keepers. Shayla, my model, made it a lot easier to get good images. Next assignment I will use numerous lights and hopfully continue to get better.

This weeks assignment for portrait class was “window light”. Using the window as the primary lighting source, enabled me to focus my attention solely on the subject. If I would have been using a flash, I do not think I would have been able to shoot as quickly and smoothly. Using the Canon 5D, I was able to crank up the ISO to 1600 and fire away knowing I would have usable images. The benefit of having a full frame sensor.

I chose my grandfather as my model and his garage as the location. Using a familiar location helped both of us ease into the shoot and feel comfortable almost immediately. It was a blast and I feel I learned a lot at the same time. I have chosen a few of my favorites from the shoot. You can click here for a slideshow of even more images from the shoot.  

Equipment Used:

Landscape photography with my Canon 5D has opened up new doors. Primarily I have a true 17mm wide angld field of view. This came in handy when photographing the Rockies. Secondly, the resolution and low noise is great for those times when you don’t have your tripod ready. I always try and use a tripod, but its good to know you can crank up the ISO a little and still have a great file. I am consistently looking for new gear to better my abilities of capturing the best landscapes presented to me. Inevitably it boils down to the photographer and the lighting. That is why I am always trying to be out in the woods, more than I am already.
