So for the first assignment that we were given in class was to capture shots that had:
1) Shallow depth of field 2 )Deep depth of field 3) Freeze action and 4) Motion blur.
Amidst tight deadlines and commitments, it was really hard to find time to actually go out and explore new places for inspiration. Even though the assignment this time round wasn’t based much on concept and on technicality, I kinda still felt that a concept would be what I really wanted to go for. Which I did try… but sadly, it didn’t go as well as I thought. But no worries, still have some free time before final portfolio submission so till then I’ll just have to keep taking shots until I can find one that truly expresses what I want to show.
So, for the class critique I had 4 shots of each technique, and here they are!
Shallow Depth of Field
This was the only satisfactory one that I could approve of out of the rest. I love how the words are not just on its own but relative to the subject as well. Kudos to my (un)willing model enkee hahaha. Not saying that she’s a bad person, but as in her usual fashion style goes along the bad-ass kinda way so…. YES i really love this photo. 😀
Then Deep Depth of Field
Had a few tries at it, and these are the few that I liked.
For Blur Motion,
I didn’t quite understand the concept of it, especially regarding the areas that are blurred and the areas that are strictly to be blurred. Tried some different adjustments, and although these 2 are not very ‘blur motion’, I really liked how it came out so I’ll just post it here for personal keepsake!
And for the blur motion I submitted via tutorial critique was this:
And for Freeze Action…
Kind of wanted to show a certain concept within each photo, along with a caption but I guess that shall be done when I can finalize which shot I intend to use.
That’s it for now! 😀
