This photo was really hard to work with because of the bad lighting in it, I would have liked to have been able to re-shoot it but I didn’t have time. The screenshots here are the adjustments that I made to the image in attempt to improve it, the first thing I did was colour correct, and then I started to dodge and burn in parts of the image so that it was more balanced. I then desaturated the image slightly, leaving the person with the colour they already had and taking a bit away from the rest of the image so she stands out more. I then used another curves layer to just make her stand out a bit more against the background and the window behind her and I’m happy with the result of that.
I have done a project very similar to this when I started college and was just learning how to use my camera and now that I have done this before I feel like this is another chance I have to do it better now I am completely sure what I am doing.
1 - small aperture
I was thinking about taking a photo like a landscape with a tree in it so there is a foreground and a background but they are still integral to eachother.
2 - large aperture
I’m not sure what to do for this one yet, I’ll probably take a photo of someone holding something up in front of them
3 - slow shutter speed
I was thinking for this picture to take a photo of someone on a slow shutter speed of about one or two seconds using a torch to make a halo around their head like a halo or something, and if that doesn’t work I might try and find a waterfall somewhere to get a photo of movement with filters
4 - frozen movement
For this I will probably take a photo of something like dropping an apple into a bowl of milk or something like that so I can freeze the splash
