Everything

A poster that I put together for an InterVarsity event.  It allowed me to work on my photography as well.

During the month of March, I wanted to work on my photography. I worked on a project for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship to help promote an event that they are going to be putting on April 9, 2009. My goal was to create a movie type poster with the silhouettes of the members of the team that are putting together a drama for that night. For this project I had to figure out the best way to shoot a silhouette photo and decided on going the "white seamless" route. I had never even heard of "white seamless" before, but the concept was simple, and it totally makes sense. I found a great tutorial online from a photographer named Zack Arias, an Atlanta based photographer. Since I found Zack's site, I've been following his blog, which I've never really done before. But it seems to be a great way to learn. I also found the "Strobist" community, which is great for learning about photography and lighting with an off-camera flash, which is what I plan on focusing on for the month of April. I have worked in the video field for a few years and have a basic understanding of how continuous lighting works... but other than just the flash built into the top of my camera, I've never really worked with a flash. In March I went through Strobist's "Lighitng 101" tutorial, but in this tutorial it covered a lot of basic lighting concepts, but lacked in the hands-on aspect of learning. In April, I plan on going through the "Lighting 102" tutorial, which is full of assignments and hands-on applications to lighting, I do hope to learn a lot, and really increase my skill in photographhy even more.pixelstats trackingpixel
