Portrait Research


For my self portrait, I was thinking of showing the abstracts of the body instead, such as hands or showing part of the legs. Maybe only showing the hands doing an activity like painting or drawing. I would have myself shoot the photo with a tripod and faced showing my back and myself painting or drawing. 


For my environmental portrait, I was thinking of taking photographs of my guy friend skatingboarding at the skatepark. He would tell me it’s his favorite place also how much he really loves to skateboard and it’s his favorite hobby as well. I might need a tripod for this category. Also I was thinking of taking pictures of my friend who is a dancer. I want to go to a dance studio to take photographs of my friend to show how passionate she is about her dance choreography, how it’s very important to her showing action in the photo.


For this one, to show emotion, attitude, style, and character including a plain background. I would have the person dressed up and sitting down on a chair or lying down on the floor. I want to use colored gel for this category and my goal is to make look very professional and formal as possible. 

Creative Portrait

For this category, I was thinking of taking photographs of my friend who loves to work with fashion to tell a story about herself. I want to play around with the gel papers. I want to make this category very creative as possible. If I use myself for this category, I was thinking of recreating a photograph or use my friend to recreate a photography from a fashion magazine photoshoot.

4.) The best quality print is the Claremont Photo place and. made my photo more accurate than theater printing places.

5.) I would print in the future maybe at the Claremont Photo and Costco. Adjustments I would make is fix the saturation to make it less and the white balance less pinkish. 

Still Life Research Project #2

I want to photograph a set of makeup: brushes, palettes, separate eyeshadows, etc. To add more dramatic effect I want to add glitter and put a pastel. I want to photograph a set of barbie dolls. I want to accomplish all three categories and include the elements we discussed in class. I want to achieve find a good place for lighting and make sure my camera settings are accurate. I want to play with the composition and make sure it fits the. requirements of the project but still have fun with it as welL.
