Project 5-Proposal

Tentative Series Name:
The Beauty of Nature

State Idea:
For this series I want to focus on different natural landscape or flowers in the scene in our life.

How will you execute idea?
I will try to go to some places like national parks, to capture the most beautiful scene or thing by using natural light or soft light. I will go to use the shallow depth the field, long depth the field and the light shadow to create my personal view of beauty nature.

Why is this topic important to you? What do you want other people to understand? What do you hope this series will accomplish?
I choose this topic because I really like to use the camera to keep the beautiful nature scene. I hope this series can let people enjoy the beauty of our nature which sometime we haven’t noticed in life. The beauty view in our lives, it still needs us to explore. Through this series, I wish people can cherish and appreciation for the nature and we can find the beautiful moment in our lives.

Any special conditions, equipment, or techniques needed?
I need to choose a good place that I can take lots of beautiful scenery pictures. I may use tripod on this project.

Output Method and Size:
For this series, I would like to print from a small size 4×6 to a large size prints. I will arrange those photos into one theme.


Portrait Research

Self-Portrait: I want to make it simple to show the side of the people’s face, apply a similar style like Candace Boissy’s photo. Using a dark background and make the person in the front, focus on the person’s face expression. I may try use different angel to capture emotion of the face.

Environment:For this theme, I would like to go out to a bookstore, friends home or a library, to use a window to capture the person’s moment, and want to show his or her personality in the scene. I really like the style how Arnold Newman use the black and white photo and environment to show the gentle man’s charater in life.

Simple/Formal: I may use a simple light color background to pop out the front person’s face. I will experience different light sources to the background and will see the effect of on the person’s face.

Creative:This theme is the most challenge task for me. I like to have the window as the background and the person in front of the window with long hair and wear a white shirt. The person’s eye closes or looks at froward. I want to capture the lighting on her face and the cloth. By making a simple look and coperate with quite environment.
