3 Kinds of Light by Alexandra Plancarte

This assignment was a set of three photographs with three different kinds of lighting. The three different lightings were: Direct, Diffuse and Artificial.

Direct ligtht

As I was heading back to my dorm, I noticed some students playing disc golf. I quickly grabbed the camera from my room and started taking pictures of four students playing. Dalio Losch, the student in the photograph is a sophomore business major. During the shoot, I notice Dalio was more focused and used different angles to catch the frisbee. Though in this shot he was unable to catch the frisbee in time. I like that he is running at an angle and his face shows his determinism. I did enhance this photograph within iPhoto on a Mac.

Diffuse light

The diffused photograph was a bit tricky. I could not figure out what to do. Then I remembered a friend of mine has a two different see thorough colored curtains on her windows. When the sun hits the windows, the curtains create pinkish lavender tone on the walls. I had Jasmine Martinez, junior psychology and spanish major, contiune her work on her desk. I tried many angles with this lighting. I remember I had to adjust the ISO serval times. Each time I moved the camera would take a dark or bright photo. Once I got the right ISO, the photos were showing up good.

Artificial light

For the artificial lighting, I took a picture of my friend Grace Anderson, sophomore vocal music eduction major, reading one of her favorite books with the light on. I told her she can actually read the book while I took a photo of her. As with the other photos, I tried many angles as I could get. I like how Grace looks joyful while reading the book. I wanted to make sure and capture that.

I would like to thank Aubrey Massey, Jacob Malmquist, Weston Hopkins and Dalio Losch for letting me take pictures of them playing disc golf. I would also like to thank Jasmine and Grace for taking time away from their studies to allow me to photograph them.
