Brainstorm: create

Photo shoot for artist model Gregory Steenbeek:

Choose an object,  eg a soft toy and take pictures making it the focus of the photograph while having a city setting in either the background, foreground or mid ground. Change and play around with different objects and different environments. I will be using natural lighting and creaiting my own sets which will be half staged and half capture. Take aprox 15 photographs doing this. 

Photo shoot for artist model Andre Kertsz:

idea 1:

Choose an object, eg a cup and use this to create shadows of this object within a city setting. I will have to take photographs on a day with sun as I wont be able to control the light. 

idea 2:

Print out or draw a city or streets ect and then place a cup or other object onto the printed/drawn surface and use controlled lighting in order to incorporate Andre’s ideas. Using either one or both of these take aprox 15 photos in total

In this black and white create photograph Andre has again used controlled light to create this photograph. The shadow within and outside of the cup would have been created by placing a light source to the left of the subject matter (cup and spoon). Andre has also used rule of thirds and texture to enhance the effectiveness of this photograph. Andre would have used an aperture of aprox f/5.6 to bring the subject matter into perfect focus. He would also have used the lowest possible IOS which would work with the level of lighting in order to have the least amount of grain/sounds in the end product. We can see that these two photographs have very similar aspects in them, including the aperture, shutter speed, IOS, controlled lighting and set and that they are both in black and white. This shows the photographers style.

In this photograph Andre has used controlled light to create the mirror images of the plate and fork. By placing the light source in the correct position, the shadow of the plate and fork fall perfectly onto the white underground, which creates an effective mirror image of both subjects. Andre has not only controlled the light but also staged the set, creating his own set to photograph. Because of this he is able to have as many attempts as he likes, till he gets an image which he is happy with. This is the benefit of a controlled set which you can change and manufacture to perfection. Andre would also have used a low IOS creating a clear image with minimal grain/sound. His aperture would have been around aprox f/5.6 allowing the subjects to be in perfect focus, a rather high shutter speed would have also helped this.

In this create photograph Steenbeek has used aperture as his priority element. He has used a relatively large aperture approximately f/4 this creates the blurred back ground and foreground while the mid ground containing the subject matter (Gary the snail and sunglasses) are in focus. I think natural light was used and through the colouring I think it was a nice day so Steenbeek would have used a a fast shutter speed in order to not over expose the photo.

The photograph uses the element of depth of field. Gary the snail is blurred in the foreground while the background is in focus. This gives the impression that Gary is moving toward the subject which is in focus. In order  to have the foreground blurred the photographer would have to have used a large aperture for example f/2.8. Other techniques which Steenbeek has used are lines and texture. Steenbeek has made this create photograph by placing his subject matter (Gary the sail) in different environments and photographing him using different photographic techniques.

Series 2: Capture
I really like his picture. I find it really brings out the essence of childhood. In order to have achieve this photo I used a mid range aperture of 18 and a mid range shutter speed, it was the middle of the day but there was no direct sunlight so even though there was a lot of light I was able to keep the shutter open for a longer period of time without causing the photograph to over expose. Because of this this photograph has similar elements as Umberto’s photo of the man running through the subway. Both images are black and white and have blurred movement caused but shutter speed. However Umberto’s image is more blurred showing that his shutter was open for a longer period of time, meaning there must have been less light present when he took the photo. In this photograph several elements have been used, such as, texture (the water and tiles), pattern (the tiles), space (back, mid and foreground), format (portrait) and natural lighting.

Series 2: Capture 
This photograph coincides with my artist model Ines, capturing a child in its environment. Like the photograph of the child skipping totally emerged in its world so does this photo of the little girl who is marvelling at the giant bubbles. I used a mid range shutter speed with an exposure time of 1/125 and I used an aperture of  8. The combination of aperture and shutter speed means that the photograph is not blurred but focused and that the foreground is more in focus than the background.
