Create a Perfectly Black Background in Photography
Next Steps for Photography
This was a challenging class project for me. Ended up picking this great poster art for the german expressionist film "M". IT was harder than I thought it would be to reproduce. Used my dimmable light in the dark room with a sweatshirt to blacken the background. Holding my hand in a way to replicate the hand in the poster was hard, I think if I had used a yellow diffused light it would have come out better, or even changing my ISO settings?
How to make a Bottle Building
Got one clamp dampened with a coffee filter clamped to the tripod, a shaded lamp off to the right and far in the background another shaded lamp. Clamp lamp on then off, Then no lamp, dimmer brought up, then full on.... fun to learn about lighting! plus the 3 point lighting video was great too!
made a small version of the reflector with cardboard and aluminum foil. works great. Cloudy day inside Jean Claude posing....before reflector and after.

Important Camera Settings
Went way out and had this image in my mind, but once i got up there and started shooting, it didn't come out how i wanted. Either way I learned a lot tonight about night shooting and got to use my tripod on a windy eve. This was one image i thought i'd share anyway. Cloudy night in Las Vegas
wow. so sick!
Just some shots in the bedroom, auto, flurescent, mixed lighting & incandescent w/flash
Getting to Know your Camera
Needed a reason to get out of the house and use the new camera (and start to learn it's ins & outs) so wandered the streets of Las Vegas for this lesson. Taken with a Sony DSC-H300. Here's a few of my favorites.. this instructables class is great so far!
