Photography project

Overview

This week I was asked to take photos capturing people, places and things. I tried to make sure there was great lighting and focus for each image. Below are the images I took.

Process

I used my iPhone 7 Plus for all of these images and took all of them around midday or in the morning for the best lighting. For minimal adjustments such as brightness, contrast and saturation, I used Photoshop and added dust and light filters through the app Afterlight. For “People 3” I used Photoshop to add layers of PNG images to make it look a bit more creative. I tried to make each image look unique and different.

Critique

Over the weekend I asked a couple of my friends at Bona’s what they thought about the images. They suggested I adjust the saturation on “People 1” and “People 4.” They also thought a couple of the images looked better in Grayscale mode instead of CMYK, which I changed afterwards.
