Journal 4 - Lighting and Portraits

This journal assignment was challenging and fun. I took it from a slightly different perspective, using colored paper to gather different effects.

The first column of shots are taken with no flash, with just colored paper held up to reflect the color. The color is not very strong, however when enlarged, hints of the color can be seen.
The second column was used in a similar manner, only with the flash turned on and being softened by a white piece of paper used as a filter.
The third column is done with the colored paper as the filter.

This shot was taken with no filter on the light, the light placed on chest at head level.

This shot was also taken with the light at head level, with a purple piece of paper over the light as a filter.

This shot was taken with the light behind her at head level with me looking up from the floor.

The light was at head level, with the pink paper as a filter over the light.

I really like this shoot. I love how you did the compilation at the top and explained what you did on each shot. I really love the series though especially when you achieved the true black background, nice job!
