So, for this photo, I took pictures of the letters separate instead of the whole word spelled out. I didn’t have enough gords to spell out the whole word. I made sure I didn’t change the aperture or shutter speed after each photo so I could stitch them together and not worry about adjusting the lighting and stuff. Although, I was dumb enough to take them close  to steps so I had to worry about the line of board lining up when I put all the pictures  together. Challenge one, was getting them all to fit on to a canvas size and adjusting them to still look the same size. Once I got them all fit together, I then had to blend the bottom of the sidewalk into the background, and get the board to line up at the top of the gords. I then did all the adjustments to the side walk and gords. But I over outlined the gords so and made the darker, so it looks like it has a darker outline, almost like a  shadow. I turned down the saturation in the background to make the letters stand out as well. So, after a little bit of work, I finally got the letters stitched together and look all halloweenish like.

WOW Vintage

And again, I am turning something in late. Big surprise. But my vintage photo is of the chimes that hang on our old play set in our back yard. They have been there for as long as I can remember. I put a vintage overlay on it, and turned the opacity down so it just had a vintage effect on the chimes. I think it adds an old looking effect that the chimes are blowing in the wind also.

Double Exposure… Again…

I personally think that this double exposure looks a lot better than my first one last year. I kind of cheated a little bit on this one though. I cut out my arm, then just layer masked my arm, and a picture that I took last year. Then I just changed the opacity and painted with the black and white.

This is Herman. Herman and his friend Norbert took a trip to school the other day. I used them for my macro pictures. I am kind of disappointed that I couldn’t get any close without the camera not focusing. It did take me forever to get him to come out of his shell, and to get to a place with enough light to get a good quality photo. After suffering through him pinching me a couple times, I finally got a good photo and called it a day. When I brought him and Norbert home in my truck, I made sure I buckled them up in there aquarium.

Homecoming

With last week being homecoming, I took a picture of some people’s miss-matching shoes. That day was dress in the dark day. Homecoming is a fun week to dress up, and act goofy. There is not very good lighting in this school, so my shutter speed had to be slower to let more light in.

The first time I took photos for this assignment was in the rain, when it was windy. The 50mm lens worked just fine, but it was really hard to get the subject stabilized for the 300mm lens. So on another day when it was sunny, I put Hagrid on the stairs, and these pictures turned out so much better. I am pretty proud of myself for how alike these photos look.

Story Telling, F/22

Aperture F/22 (of course)

This assignment had to have a beginning, a middle, and an end. The beginning of this photo to me, would be the shoes. The middle is the track behind the shoes. Finally the end, would have to be the trees or the sky, or maybe even that little yellow dot. That yellow dot is a kid laying on the ground. Which is how I feel when I get done running at anytime.
