We needed to do a high key assignment for Advanced Color Portrait, so I asked Jamie, who I knew from Hall Council, if she would be interested in being a model. In the meantime, I’m stil having some trouble with the hot shoe mount on the Rebel XS not wanting to trigger the flash, so I need to test that out and see if that’s related to the camera, the mount, or the sync chords. Luckily my 30D has it’s own spot for the sync chords.
On a side note– unless you want to strip out the background in Photoshop, High Key is best done with three, not two, lights.

These are pictures I took of my fiance’s sister for her Prom. Some photos I edited in Photoshop CS4, but I mostly used Lightroom 2.0. I used a Lumedyne coupled with a Alienbee umbrella for a flash.

These are pictures of my fiance that I took for my editorial class. The idea is fashion, particularly of more formal wear. No flashes, but an occasional reflector was used. Retouching was done in Photoshop.

Last class period, Professor Jerry Schmidt baked bread and brought food to make sandwiches and salads for an in-class food shoot. The plan was to shoot tethered to the computer and work as a team. So the class seperated into four groups and worked together to create a delicious-looking pictures of food. These are pictures that our group took, taking turns while the other members enjoyed fresh bread dipped in olive oil. I’m not sure which ones I took and which ones the other members of my group took, but I thought I’d post several in case someone wasn’t able to get access to the photos. I did some post-processing to the photos in Adobe Lightroom 2.0.
These are pictures I took of the Jennies Blackout Basketball Game for my editorial class. This was University of Central Missouri versus Truman state in the MIAA game. This was the last home game of the season. As per requirement of the class, I called in for a press pass, but when I got there one hadn’t been made for me. Fortuanetly, one of the staff there was able to get permission for me to get on the floor to take pictures.
I discovered that I most enjoy getting pictures of action and expressions… and also half-time events.

These are theatre headshots I took for a student of theatre. These were taken in the school’s studio with profoto lights and a beauty dish, as well as a softbox for a floor light, and a gridspot for the hairlight. It was a roughly one and a half hour photo session, after which I let her see proofs via the webpage-maker in Adobe Lightroom. She chose the ones she wanted me to edit, and I retouched those as well as making them black and white and in the 8.5×11, 8×10, and orginal size formats.
This is also the photoshoot that my Canon Rebel XS decided to show me Error 99. Luckily I was able to run downstairs to checkout a Canon 30D from the photo department. Most shots were with the Rebel, but a few of them were with the 30D.
