Here are some photographs taken with my step-father’s old film camera. I was experimenting with it because I was new to it, and these photos seemed to turn out to be bad quality. However they give the photos a nice feel. I took these images back home in Bermuda and got a lot of the island scenery. The last photo was actually taken of me, and was a mistake, but I love the way it turned out because it was unexpected.
Although these photographs are a bit creepy they are so interesting to me. I had no idea that our eyes had this much detail. The way that Suren captured this is amazing. You can obviously tell he used a bright light and professional camera. I can even see the light reflected into the eyeball. It would be interesting to try, however I wouldn’t want to blind anyone. Beautiful photographs nonetheless.
I’ve recently been a fan of 3D effect photography where they use the red and blue hues. It seems easy to replicate and I want to try it out soon. It adds a cool, modern and futuristic effect to the initial photograph.
I love Alberto Seveso’s work with ink in water. He used digital photography to capture the vibrant colours and textures the ink seemed to create within the water. Within my drawing class we have been experimenting with creating textures with new mediums. I have been taking photographs of my progress and these photographs are something I still want to try!
These are some photographs I took over summer for a previous project with my previous university. The objective was to look at colour in a different way. I decided to take photographs of houses located where I live, the Island of Bermuda. The houses here are varied in colour however their roofs stay white. Its a great spectacular for the eye when you come visit.
I do not personally know Yumna but have recently been a fan of her work. I actually found out about her through a friend and have been hooked ever since. She seems to document her surrounding and travels in a creative way. She is a brooklyn based photographer and has been promoted through press as well. Check out her website! http://www.yumnaaa.com
I have always been interested in fashion photography. Lately I’ve been really into vibrant colours that stand out in the photographs. These are a few examples from one of my favourite fashion blogs http://blog.nastygal.com. For their spring and summer collection they have been incorporating neons and bright colours in their clothes and accessories. I love it!
For our final photograph we used a different Frida Kahlo painting and made into something more modern. Although this was not in a studio setting we thought natural lighting would be best especially since the backdrop consists of natural greenery and plants. The light seems to be coming from the right side of Frida’s face in the painting so it was great when the sunlight caught our muse’s face on the same side. We positioned her in front of a bush, similar to the one in the painting. We edited it in photoshop giving it a warm yellowish tone. I think the overall photograph looks great, and is a good example of a modern day Frida Kahlo.
For these photographs we decided to take our project outside into a natural light setting. We thought testing would be better in order to get the lighting almost exact to the painting.
For this project we were supposed to take a popular painting or photograph and try and mimic it using photography and studio lighting. We decided to use Frida Kahlo’s painting. We tried our hardest to copy the lighting, but because her medium is a painting it was hard to determine where the real light source was coming from. We shined a lamp on the right side of the muse’s face to get the dark shadow under her chin. This was our testing and it was hard because we were not in a studio setting.
