TypeI: ProjectII: Photography

Then I tried different ways to take photos of this image. I tried the photo studio, I took 76  images, but found out that the lighting was too yellow and also the lighting wasn’t working. I tried so many angles to see if there would be anything good, but I didn’t get much.

This is some results from the photo studio:

This is with the flash…


I tried it on manual, but realized I didn’t know how to play around with the camera:


This is me trying with the side lights, without the side lights, with a main light, with two main lights, with only side lights, with only main lights:

This is an example of my trying inside with natural light:


This is an example of my trying outside, but in shade, I saw that the trees were making this random shadow, but I was just trying to see how it looked.


And this is the one I chose, which was under direct sunlight:


Leaves wanted to be in the picture, so I had to flip this as well: the wind was blowing a lot this day, so we had to hold the board.


I debated between small detailed at this point, between the shadow looked, whether it was sharper or not, darker, and in what slightly different directions.


This is the one I chose to present:


This is a comparison from the last time to this time. Lesson learned: Lighting makes a huge difference.


During this critique, I was told that I was done, but I wanted to take care of some fine details.

I asked opinions whether the image should be cropped from the top or not, and both Leland and Law gave me opposing opinions. I chose to keep it uncropped, because there was an issue of the ends of d and the l’s mazes touching the ends. Also, I felt that the poster with the space gave more room, and considering the next project, I felt that that image was better.

Also, Law made a comment that it looked blurry, so I looked at it again, to figure out what was the problem.
