Homework week 3

The assignment this week is focused on lighting, understanding and creativity.

I was advised to use a high shutter speed when working on an animal portrait, however, this dog is well trained so I knew he would hold still for a close up shot. Therefore, I went for a smaller aperture to increase the depth of field.


For the following capture (a training my eye exercise!), I wanted to concentrate on the positive and negative space.


This is all about photographing a shadow….. I had a lot of fun with my son creating lots of different shapes. Again, the negative space is important.


I knew that my subject for my environmental portrait would be very serious and come across as stern, so I threw her a curve ball and asked my son to pass over his phone. This immediately made her relaxed and her natural beauty really shone through. Love this photo.
