This semester I am lucky enough to have room in my schedule to take a photography class! For the past two weeks we have been focusing on learning how to shoot in full manual, including manually focusing the camera. The first half of the semester all our photos are to be submitted in black and white and the second half with have to do with color management.
My sister Jill was nice enough to pose for 227 pictures for me last Saturday! I had the camera on continuous shutter so that has a lot to do with the really high number. Our first assignment was a vertical headshot cropped in pretty close in full sun and the second was the same type of photo in full shade. We played around with Photoshop tonight to get the right balance between the blacks, whites and grays and here are my two results!
I had some extra time in class left so I played with a photo that I liked even though it wasn't to the assignments specifications. The quality of the pictures is really nice on my computer but it doesn't quite transfer onto blogger but it's okay!
Stay tuned for the rest of the 18 assignments I'll be doing this semester!
