Week 14 Laura/Easter


This week was easter week so I decided to have my photo project be that but I also ended up making some formal senior pictures for Laura and really liked them. First of all it was great because Laura was in a good mood, smiling and due to having just gone to church all prettied up. The lighting was somewhat difficult because it was shortly after noon with the sun shinning bright and high in the sky. Fortunately I found a shady spot and then used my flash to brighten Laura up so the background wouldn't be blown out. The disadvantage to that was I had to work hard to not show the buildings, cars, and people around the neighborhood in the background. All in all a fun and successful portrait session.

I also made some photographs of all the easter festivities much of which was the consumption of huge amounts of sweets.

There were water droplets on all the flowers and the light was nice and diffused but still bright. The photograph above is my favorite this week because of the stark contrast between the bright yellow and the dark green. I also like ho the plane of focus puts the tip of the inner part of the flower, the water droplets on the petal, and a line of green leaves in focus. I made a hug amount of photographs in a very short time largely because I was using extension tubes on my 50mm prime lens without a tripod and with some wind blowing things around. It is incredibly hard to focus with the extension tubes because I have to move the camera instead of just turning a ring on the lens. I dod manage to cope with fast shutter speeds and lot…
