welcome to blogmas day 2! today i want to share another one of my photography projects. i have to say this one was my favorite projects out of all the ones i did this past quarter. i think i really liked it because it was more of just a random photo shoot, which is what i like to do, instead of a few images that i had to have planned out and then shot. i also loved it because i got to do it with one of my best friends, keeley. i feel like photo shoots are always way more fun when they're with friends. anyways, for this project i had to choose one model and photograph them in different lighting scenarios. some of the instructions were super specific (like they literally told you what kind of light and from what angle to have it), while some allowed for a lot of freedom, which i really liked. here's how they turned out!
hello! i have once again emerged from the dead with another blog post. fall quarter is officially over, and i'm super pumped to be able to work on the blog more. as you may or may not know, i decided to minor in photography last year; it wasn't until this quarter though that i took an actual photography class. it was kind of weird becuase i've been seriously pursuing photography for two years now and all of a sudden everything that i had kind of informaly learned was being tought in a weird structured way. needless to say, it took some getting used to. i have to say, overall i wasn't a huge fan of the class. i personally felt like it constrained me, although on the technical side of things i did learn a lot so i guess it was all worth it.
anyways, i thought it would be cool to share my photography projects from this class on the blog. i'm starting with my final project, so i'm not really going in order, but i'll probably end up sharing all of them eventually.
for this project i strayed quite a bit away from what i usually enjoy/focus on in photography. i usually really like capturing color and light in scenes that create aesthetically pleasing images. i don't usually have a deeper concept or idea behind them. for this project, however, i did the exact opposite. i'm not sure how well it turned out, but to be honest i'm just proud of myself for trying something that i normally would never have done in my usual work.
the concept behind this typology is how people in this decade interact with technology. it has become so easy for each of us to become our own photographer of ourselves and the world around us. we all have phones in our hands that take quality images, and we've all kind of inderectly learned some of the basics of photography accidently as we take numerous shots to find the perfect one. so, this serious tries to focus on that and highlights its existence in our world today.
in the past year or two i've discovered a new found love for photography. i think it all started when i got my first iphone; suddenly i had a decent camera right at my finger tips. it's been a couple years since then and my interest has grown. recently i found a gold mine of old family polaroid pictures. this ignited a spark that set me looking to try out polaroid photography myself. i found the same polaroid camera my family used years ago and decided to give this whole polaroid thing a go. i'll be sharing a series of posts that logs my polaroid experience, so... first things first. i'm going to be using this camera (pictured below). it was a company camera given to my mom for work and we still have it. i was happy to use it instead of spending hundreds of dollars on a new one! (crossing my fingers that it still works...) also, my first batch of photos will be on this film (pictured above). i went straight for the cool film instead of starting out with the basic white squares. here are a few other cameras and film options i think are cool so you can start your own polaroid journey! xo shawndiz
