Exercise K


Portrait Research

For my self portait I’d like to utilize a mirror to create cool angles and incorporate background textures. For my traditional portrait I’d like to take a picture of my friend posed in a nice setting like LA. For my environmental one, I’d like to take a picture of a create inside their studio/workspace. For my creative photo, I will spend money on flowers or fruit loops and put them in my bathtub, and create some cool photos that way.

Still Life Research


Traditional: For my traditional still life I want to take pictures of a pair of my shoes. Preferably I’d like to do my favorite vans. I’d like my vans to be placed amongst a pastel pink shoe box, and other pastel colors. I’d like to use the bottom “waffle,” print on the vans as a literal waffle and pour syrup making the picture very sticky and pastel.

Food: For my food still life I plan on making ramen, probably top Ramen from home, adding some vegetables and other goodies on top to make it look expensive. I think adding a knife, fork, and a nice wood grain background would make the ramen pop.

Product: For my product shot I’d like to practice shooting some of my custom clothes. This will be good for future advertising that I must do for my brand. I’d like to shoot a shirt with objects like squares and boxes that juxtapose the organic forms the shirt will create.

Exercise G: Print

All Prints. Labeled.

Original file.

For my prints I went to Walmart, Target, CVS, print lab, and Claremont Photo and Video. The best quality print came from Claremont Photo and Video. The next best print was from Walmart based on paper and print quality. In the future I will print at Walmart. However, I will edit the highlights to be toned down since my Walmart prints have bright highlights.
