Reflected LightDiffused Light

Mood Lighting

I chose to use high side lighting to light the brushes. I thought this type of lighting would do the best for creating shadows and highlights on the brushes while maintaining the detail. To achieve the effect I placed the brushes on a table and positioned a clamp light above and to the right of them.

The Lupus Chili Festival

The following nine photos were taken in Lupus Missouri at their annual Chili Fest. I took close to 200 photos at the festival but I chose these nine for two reasons. The first being that I feel like they are well composed interesting photos, but more importantly I felt like they captured the mood of the festival.

Framing Part Three

This is the example of a bad framing of my word. I think it is taken from to far back and you dont really know where to focus.
This is a more successful example of my word. The image fits the frame well and it leads your eye around the picture.

Framing Part Two

This is the unsuccessful atempt at framing an object. I feel like the flower being so low in the frame makes the image very bottom heavy and hard to move around.
I feel this one is more successful because the petals help you to move around the picture and the leaves and vines create a good contrast to the pink/purple of the flower.

Framing Part One

Above is my example of a poor framing job. The bridge seems slanted and the sky takes up to much of the picture.

These two are my successful examples for the framing exercise. I was trying to focus on lines and angles and how they relate to the frame. I feel these are stronger then the first image because they do a better job of leading your eye around the picture and maintaining interest.
