I really enjoyed this assignment. I enjoyed the idea of pulling cards and picking the one you like the most for your assignment. The card I pulled was “take pictures of your room.” I liked playing around with my lighting kit in my room and taking pictures from different angles. I edited all the pictures in Lightroom adjusting the colors. For inspiration I went to THIS SITE.My pillowsI liked this picture of my lamp.I took a picture of my aloe plant.A macro of my cactusDifferent anglesMy christmas lights.
This picture I took downtown by the lake. In photoshop using the brush tool I got rid of the extra marks I didn’t want and added more Lights in blank areas.This picture I took of a couple downtown.

I edited it a little in LightroomThis is a picture of my gooey at dockside.These pictures I took downtown I am really pleased with how they turned out. I had a lot of fun with this assignment I like free choice assignments. I worked most of the break so i only got a few photos but this is what I got.
For this assignment I created a Lightbox. I didn’t have many difficulties considering I made one last year. I really enjoy this Lightbox and will definitely be using it a lot in the future. I did a couple shots with it this is how they turned out. For directions I went to THIS SITE.
For these pictures I only used one light to expose this. For the first five I used the big umbrella light and for last couple I used the softbox. I found that the softbox produced more soft light. I had alot of fun with this assignment and figuring out how to make the light softer or move it according to the mood of the photo. For this assinment I looked at this site and learned alot from it.
The theme I chose for the EOCA was “moment” I chose this because every image is a moment in time. It is a moment captured forever. These pictures I took throughout the weekend. I went downtown and took lots of portraits and liked how they had turned out. It was very sunny over the weekend which means harsh lighting so I tried to stay in more shady areas. I got the exposure right for the background and used my lighting kit to light up the subject. I think these pictures turned out a lot better than I had expected. In Photoshop I got rid of blemishes and Tyler’s coldsore. In Lightroom I brought the whites down because It was very bright that day I also adjusted the colors a little.

These are my eight best pictures I have taken all year. These are all photos that impressed me. I took them a while back in January on a nice day on Tubbs. I edited hem all in Lightroom and really like how they turned out. I think they are unique. They are pictures people haven’t captured before. The water was extremely low that day and it was cloudy so the lighting was soft and in my favor.
For these photos me and my sister went to Tubbs Hill to take pictures. I used my flash and just hooked it to the top. It made a huge difference in the quality of the images. If i did it again I would underexpose them more and use a less powerful flash so they wouldn’t be so blown out and i wouldn’t have to adjust in Lightroom.
