Wow, time flies. I haven’t been on here in a while. I’m going to try and get back to lessons this summer.
You know, it’s a hallway and there is no door. It bugged me but there was nothing i could do. But I am learning from these lessons, it’s difficult, but definitely learning.
OK, here is my new staged photograph. It isn’t from a dream or anything, and isn’t too dramatic but I did place “anything in any position I wished”. I wanted to play with the reflections in the island and the squares. You will see the top left and right bending (as stated in my new 9 post). I don’t know why that is happening or how to stop it. Any suggestions? Also, I am still having trouble with noise. Every photo since the beginning of the lessons. Is it the ISO? Does the camera automatically change that? I have to study it.
Ok, here is my re-shoot of a black and white image. I know you’re going to plunk me on the lines being off. I try really hard to get everything level but it seems that on every picture I take, the top left and right corners seem to bend to the left and right respectively (you’ll see it more prominently on my new staged lesson 8 shot). Is there something i can do to fix it? Do you think it is the safety filter I am using?
OK, no problem, I’ll give this one another go as well.
I want to make sure I understand this assignment before i re-shoot it because I’ll probably do something similar. It asked for 1. A wide tonal range and 2. An uneven tonal balance slanted toward the black end of the spectrum. There is a screen shot below of the histogram. The original photo is on the left and then I converted it to black and white. The black box is actually a door. Are we supposed to actually shoot it in the black and white setting? If so, I can definitely shoot again. Otherwise, can you tell me what is it you see that might be wrong so I don’t repeat it? Thanks.
That makes sense. I’ll stage something and shoot again.
I just wanted to re-upload the same pic retouched for final submission on this lesson. I fixed the white balance.
Hello. Is this image, which I took the same day with the other burned book (bottom image), not hard lighting? The sun was shining bright from an angle not overhead and the pages are casting what I think are hard shadows, no? or what about the pic of the sign post (I did a bunch of post on it to remove background elements)? Just want to make sure I understand this before I submit next lesson.
Feel better, man. It’s going around. I know 4 people who had/has strep.
Thanks. I was wondering why the back and forefront was out of focus. I’m not sure I know when it is a good time to raise or lower the f-stop. And I am struggling big time with the white balance as you’ve called it out twice now. There are settings on the camera for tungsten, fluorescents, daylight, etc. is that what you mean? There is also something with 500k that goes up and down. Also, intake a lot of product photography with that camera and I always have to completely take out the yellow hue from the photo in photoshop. Could it be the camera?
In video, all I had to do was zoom in on something stark white and hit the white balance button and it was done. Here, it is quite different for sure.
I posted my first two assignments without looking at other student posts so I can have an unbiased approach to doing the assignment. Anyway, I see that other students have chosen McCurry as well and that there is a lot of info on him in their posts. Thanks.
