Out-take from my shoot...

I did a small shoot with Adam Green the yesterday morning for my 310 Photoshop class. This is one of the out takes that I liked. Adam is a baller.

Assignment #5: Copy an Ad

This assignment proved a challenge. The assignment title pretty much sums it up...we had to copy an advertisement in every detail. This required a lot of post production for everyone.
This is mine...
Here is the original. (The scan makes the paper look darker than it is).

Assignment #3 Impossible Lighting

Smith Phenom Goggles with the custom Blindside Company hop up kit.
This shot is made up of 6 or 7 shots where lighting was accenting different parts of the goggles.

Assignments 1 and 2

Here are my first two assignments from class. The first assignment was to shoot a black subject on a black background, and then a white subject on a white background. I liked this assignment and will probably do more of this on my own in the future.

Assignment two had four parts. For the first, the subject was to be shot on the light table with the background blown out to white (done in camera). I shot my Peacock Dunks.
The other 3 parts were to shoot a monochromatic color scheme, first using one light, then two and finally three lights.
Here is the one light shot.
Two lights...
And finally, three lights.

film por vida?

Shooting action (skateboarding in this case) isn't easy with a view camera. I shot these last month on a 4x5 that I checked out from the school. This thing isn't even a field camera; it's meant for the studio. I didn't exactly accomplish what I wanted to--I didn't use my flashes for any of the shots. Here are a couple images. The vignette is from the extreme tilt or shift of the front standard.

Here is a shot from last week that I am pleased with. Anyone that know anything about skateboarding knows how hard it would be to ollie a rail this high. I'll throw in a couple more that I like from the last little while.

Product/Table Top Imagery Post #1

The first three images are by Greg Sachs. They mostly follow the criteria of our first assignment, with the exception of the splashes of vibrant color, and the white pattern behind the knife. I feel these images are successful because: the simple subjects are made interesting by good composition; lighting is used to accentuate curves and lines to create a more dramatic image; I really like how "graphic" they are.

Shoe image by Gemma Comas. I really like the color in this image. The lighting also looks very normal--like a simulated window light.
