i was having a hard time thinking about what i would do for this shot but then, i asked my friend to hold our bounce card up by my legs so that the shadow that was there would vanish, i think this was a success.

Front Light, Low Key

I thought about putting this in black and white but then later changed my mind it lost  most of its compelling qualities  when i changed it. the tones are mostly neutral and the light that was available did not create any harsh shadows.

Side light, Low Contrast

This is my low contrast shot. Jackie’s friend Mary joined us on our walk of downtown St. Paul. I put this one in Black and white because the color was to washed out looking and it looked so much better like this. The shadows that are in this shot are more gray and neutral which make this picture work so well.

Side light, High contrast

This is my Side light high contrast after i took this picture i seriously contemplated  taking a second in black and white, but after doing that if just didn’t seem right. I prefer it in color,  the best part of this picture is how authentic it is, she did’t just smile for the camera. Rather she was laughing and smiling at a joke our group had just made. Candid shots are one of my favorite shots to take, they are sincere and they tend to look the best.

Front light high key

 I chose this one for my high key front light because the color in her skin is somewhat washed out and  making her complexion paler and the light darkens her shadows allot, I had her look more up so that the image was not frightful. I am nice like that!

Ambient

 I chose to use this image for my Ambient light because how i interpreted ambient light was that the light used in the image was or is even distributed with no real shadows. And in this image there are no real shadows and when i took it i thought the light was kind of neutral but it would still work

Backlight

 I choose this for back light because the sun light from the sun creates the halo affect on her, and gives her hair more of a shine. it also leaves nice shadows on her face without blacking out the fine details. And i honestly feel that the sun spots enhance this image by creating  a diagonal line that draws your eye, and the color of said sun spots adds more visual interest.
