Students explored photographing bubbles – the reflection of light, color, the challenge of photographing something that moves with the slightest breeze and pops fairly quickly. Some students also challenged themselves with tonic water, fruit and lighting for a different take on bubbles.
Last week students played with both patterns and texture. Photographing a pattern or a texture involves selecting the right light, creating a strong composition, and selecting a focal point that allows the viewer to see what the photographer wants you to see.
Students spent last week investigating how to create high key and low key photos. High key photos are typically full of light and color and evoke a happy feeling, often using a white or very light background. Low key is usually dark and moody, creating contrasts and shadows while utilizing a black or dark background.
