Today’s (…& Tomorrow’s) goal learning why we’re thankful for certain tools and actions available in Photoshop & Lightroom. The last two days were so you could see the old way of doing things which were time tasking. Today you’ll appreciate the tools available.
Also today we’ll begin with Food Photography
Food Photography images (20 – 30 Pics)
due February 20th
Each time the Olympics begin I’m back reading Jeff Cable’s blog and Facebook page about his journey. He’s a photographer who has covered several of the Olympics. From journals about his days to what he packed. I highly recommend his site to each of you.
Today’s goal is to get the extras needed for the weeks to come for Lightroom and Photoshop. You’ll be getting Actions, NIK, Brushes, Presets, Templates, JoytoKey, and possibly signature. (that last one may have to wait a week).
Today you are to post your best 10 images for either your indoor sports post or 70 – 200mm portrait session. Post from best to worst.
Also due is a contact print with all images taken. (Cull before printing). You’ll be printing to either the 4350 or 4700 printer. Make sure your name, high school, and class period are on the papers. Turn in before leaving TODAY!!!!
Rodeo – You are to create a post. Call it “Indoor Sports – Rodeo” Copy and paste the following information —
Images will be posted to this site on or before February 14th. If no images are posted by this date that means I received a zero for my grade.
Today we’ll discuss all things senior photos including when to shoot, how to watch the weather, where to shoot, and ideas for shooting. Your senior photoshoot is going to count for two summative grades.
Photos are due March 6th!
First to begin is posing ideas. Got some already? Here a few links that might help if your trying to pose another person from my own Pinterest account:
Here is a link to a senior portrait session I did two years ago. Spent 2 hours shooting. She changed clothes three times. Made sure to shoot during Golden Hour. Used a flash or reflector for some of the shots.
Use something like Evernote to save ideas. Website and app on your phone will make life easier when out shooting. (Pocket, Dropbox, Google Docs, etc are other options)
Stay off the Tracks. Photographing on railroad tracks is against the law. Walking or taking photos on the tracks is trespassing. Yes. Police will give you a ticket. NO. The train won’t stop for you.
Speaking of senior photos here are some examples for you.
If you’re not already watching the weather forecast you need to be doing so. DAILY!! Good photographers do. Shooting this weekend will will be good weather, except a little breezy. It hasn’t been raining yet but look at next week.
