UCMO – Three Musketeers Production Photos

These are some of the pictures from UCMO’s Three Musketeers production. My fiance, Isaac, helped me shoot production photos. He took the wide shots, while I used the telephoto lens. I’ve often found that it is helpful to work with him on these photoshoots—it helps speed up the time and also keeps me from carrying two cameras or switching back and forth between lenses.

UCMO – Three Musketeers FOH

These are some of the front of house pictures I took for UCMO theatre department’s production of The Three Musketeers. It was an excellent show, and both me and my fiance thoroughly enjoyed it. With its comedy interspersed between the tragedy, and fun-to-watch swordplay involved, The Three Musketeers has been one of my favorite productions to watch at UCMO.

Production Photos and stage combat practice photos coming soon.

#4 Adv. Color Portrait – Seniors

For advanced color portrait we needed to take pictures of high school seniors. Both to fulfill the class assignment and to get examples for my senior portraits business I’m starting up, I took pictures of four seniors for free, giving them one hour each for shooting (both inside the library with my alien bee lights and outside) and 10 fully retouched photos on a disk for them to print as they like.

Daylight In Studio

In Advance Studio we learned a trick to create a daylight appearance inside a studio setting. The trick is to use hot lights (continuous lighting) in conjunction with the daylight setting of white balance in your camera. To add some blue to the shadows, you can put a CTB (Color Temperature Blue gel) on the inside of a flash softbox (make sure it’s not too close to the bulb, though, to avoid damage). In the product shot I tried to bounce the flash off blue paper to get a sky effect, and my professor suggested lighting from beneath the table to get the rising sun gradient effect in the background. In the picture with peeps, I used the CTB method.

Advanced Color Portrait: Q-Flash In-class Shoot

Today in class, Professor Schmidt took the class outside around campus with two Q-Flashes (one for a soft fill, and one as a hairlight) and a bunch of pocket wizards (so a lot of flashes ensued). Pictures were taken in various areas and students were swapped out as models. The main problem was getting the flash to show up in the pictures. Raise the flash, less recycles and more chances of missing the shot with so many people shooting.

Senior Portrait Tips – Chelcy

Chelcy’s pictures were the second shoot I did of my free senior pictures shoot for examples over Spring Break. This time it was easier to get everything set up, and my Canon Rebel XS cooperated with me this time. I set up in the large room downstairs in the library, and the size difference made a great deal of help. It kept me from fumbling into things or hitting the background stands against the ceiling, a major help in trying to get everything set up quickly. It still took a little time to sit up, but I was able to leave it there for my next shoot with Lisa and Heather afterwards.

#2 Beauty Light – Butterfly

For my Advanced Color Portrait class, we needed to use a beauty light. So I checked out a beauty dish from the photo checkout, and used my own alien bees and fabric backdrops (held up by ducttape, safety pins, and a curtain rod). I talked my friend Kel into being a model, and after the last face paint I did, decided to try something a bit more light hearted. I wanted to include some digital editing, so I used textures and a couple other techniques. In the meantime I had the song, “Butterfly” by Smile.dk stuck in my head the entire time I was working on these pictures.

Food Photography – Thai

Yesterday my mom and I went to a Thai restaurant called The Magic Noodle Bowl. Knowing how nice they present thier food, I brought my camera with my new 50 mm, 1.8 lens. I used window lighting and available light. These are a few of the shots I got. We ordered steamed dumplings, pad thai, and lo mein with chicken. They also served soup.

Great Websites For Senior Portrait Tips

Later this week I will be taking senior pictures for my fiance’s sister. Seeing as its been a little while since I’ve done portrait photography, I decided it was time to brush up on my knowledge of making senior pictures. In order to do that,  there are three things in specific I wanted to do.

1. Look through several magazines (Lucky, Teen Vogue, and Seventeen) to get portrait ideas. These were supplied to me by Isaac’s sister.

2. Check to make sure my Alien Bees are working properly. I don’t think I’ve used them since school ended this spring.

3. Find websites with beautiful senior pictures or with tips to get ideas from.

I decided to share the results of my search for websites here, and below are several websites I found useful.

http://www.seniorpictures.com/Portrait-Photographers/Ten_Tips.html

~This site has several tips aimed at the seniors having thier pictures taken. At the same time, it is useful for the photographer to keep these tips in mind, too.

http://www.boxseniors.com/main.html

~ A portrait photographer’s site. They have some beautiful senior photos and great ideas. It may be helpful to look through the work they’ve done to get ideas on locations and retouching.

~ Spectacular images- I envy thier skills. They have many beautiful images, and I suspect much could be learned by studying what they have done.

I plan to look up more websites later, but for the meantime its on to scouting through magazines.
