This class is an intermediate study of photography that focuses on developing skills learned in Photo I and bringing new skills to the forefront. We will explore more serious forms of photography and expect a more professional outcome.
Create 2 floating food images. Remember items with more physical layers is more interesting, but having those layers be easily attached helps to make them interesting (i.e. it is very hard to float a layered trifle or an ice cream cone). You will need to take several images of each food to give yourself options, but the setup is most important. Think about a clean background to make it easier to use the content-aware fill option, also think about your lighting. Creating a mini studio is helpful in making this very clean in post production.
Objective: To create interest in your image by implementing photoshop editing techniques to make pieces of your photo disappear
Create 3 composite journey images. You can use object, take a walk outside, photograph several portraits in a row, or explore even more conceptual ideas about the passing of time. Remember to take several images that overlap with one another, try 10 images or 50 images...how might more images be interesting?
Objective: To use separate images (taken over a short period of time) to create the feeling of time and memory.
Create 3 frozen flower photos using both flowers and other items to create an interesting, and dynamic composition. Negative space is your friend here, you do not need to overload the ice block with items.
