I plan for these images to be fairly straight forward but I will need a tripod for sure maybe a reflector.

Portrait Research

So for the portrait project I have a general idea of what I would like to do. For my self portrait I would like to get a photo of me in the room with the sun coming in from the window. For environment I want to go on a hike with my friend and photograph him in nature. For formal I want to keep it simple and take a candid photo of someone in front of a colored background. Finally for creative I wanted to do another self portrait and want to do a Bohemian Rhapsody type photo where I’m in a black room with a top light shinning on me.

In order from top to bottom, I printed at Kinko’s, Walgreens, Walmart, and target. For the professional print, I went to ¬†Powell. My best print was from Powell but the next closest thing was the Walmart print. I would print at these 2 places in the future most likely Walmart because it will do less damage to my bank account. The only adjustment would be to slightly cool down the photo.

For the still life project, I would like to have personal items in the photos. The items that I want to show will define moments in my life or items that are sentimental in value to me. For the Traditional still life, I plan on using three or four items that have helped define who I am. For product, I would like to shoot pictures of some of my pop toy collections. For food, I was thinking of getting fast food and putting it on fancy china.
