My final is about connection. Connection fits with my photos because I took them of my mom, brother, and best friend. In these photos I really wanted to concentrate on fun, focus, and me. I really think that these photos turned out great. In all my photos I worked in Photoshop, when I was fixing them I focussed on brightening the background, and making their eyes pop! I was surprised with how they turned out, but in a good way. Here is one website that is really helping me with my studio portraits. I have been learning how to take them, and how I should position them to the lighting and the camera http://www.stnphotography.com/tips.html#people.
I was really happy with the pictures of my mom! She looks beautiful, and her eyes look amazing. The blue really pops, and I think the background looks good with the photos. Another thing that you can look at for these photos is that the first image its more natural and there smiling. In the second picture she is more serious and looks more elegant.
Mariah Looks great too. The reason I took pictures of her again is because it connected with my final. In these photos I wanted to do something different than usual so I shot from a different angle and had her pose differently. I also took the soft side of her because I felt it was needed. Another thing that you can look at for these photos is that the first image its more natural and there smiling. In the second picture she is more serious and looks more serious.
My brother’s pictures turned out awesome too. I really like his eyes, and he looks emotional, but in a strong way. The background really worked with this photo as well. During the photo shoot it was really difficult to keep him calm so the promise I made him was a hamburger after!
This photo is one of my favorites I like how they are all doing their own thing, and some what separated away from each other. I do not think I could have done anything differently with this picture either.
I think how I had both Mariah and Dylan with my mom. It makes the feeling of the photos more decent. I love them, and I think these photos explain it very well.
These last few photos are great! They look hilarious, evryone is natural, and relaxed. Before we took these photos my brother decided to say comments after comments, and for some reason he made them laugh alon with them. I really like these pictures I took because they are perfect pictures to describe the way they would all act around eachother. They laugh, and are extremely happy people.
