Paying to stand around a camera

So, one day in lab Kevin decided to show us how to pose groups of people. He gave us some things to think about, then in a round robin style told us to post everyone. These pics are just a couple of the fun things we did.

We have this assignment where we have to shoot a classic George Hurrell-ish styled picture. For this image, I sat April in a very feminine pose. I also used dramatic butterfly lighting. The only problem I have with this is I really like the color version. The color of the dress is awesome with the red-burgundy of the chaise and lipstick. But, since this was supposed to be a black and white assignment, I had to tone it down. I desaturated the image, but not completely. I do like the second version as well.

Another Try at Portraiture

I think I did MUCH better this time!!! These are a few of the images I will be turning in for Kevin's assignments. They are all done in the studio and after experimenting with many different lighting techniques, I can safely say that I'm extremely happy with what I am turning in.

Both of these images were used for my quick hit photo story assignment. I did the story on my mom since she has been working at a bowling center for about 20 years. I thought it was kind of interesting. The other pictures for the assignment were of other jobs that she performs at the center. These two images were hand-held at 1/20 (the top image) and 1/8 (bottom) of a second.
