Bannock Portraits

1. PORTRAITS (5+ images): The following are a few portraits I caught at Bannock. I have explained which lighting I have used. I have also included my group photo and ghosting photo. Please enjoy!
The first photo is my photo of a GROUP OF 2 OR MORE: Capture at least 1 group portrait with at least 2 subjects/models in the frame. This is also one of the three photos with auxiliary light used to get it. For this photo I used a strobe with a softbox. :

To get this next photo of the model out side I used natural lighting with a reflector that defused the light on her.

This next photo of the same model was just natural lighting with no reflector.:

The following photo is my GHOST photo: To get this photo I used a tripod, slow shutter to capture a transparent, and MiKayla walked across the room to be the moving subject.

For the picture of the cowboy sitting on the chair I used natural light coming through a large window in the room of the building we were in.
For this photo I used a strobe light. I loved how light this one turned out and how much detail you can see all over in the photo!:
This photo I used a reflector on the cowboy.: This photo was taken in the school. To catch this photo I used strobe lighting and a reflector.  This photo was taken inside the little jail we found. I used all natural light for this photo.: For this photo I used natural light:

I thought this one was just really fun to catch her laughing, the deflector reflector was being used:

1.  For the edits in this following photo I edited a little bit of the color to make my friends hair darker. I also edited her eyes and teeth. I used the sharpening and the dodge tool to just lighten them up a little bit. I was going to get rid of any blemishes but she didn’t have any that I felt needed fixed!

Lighting With Reflector

No Reflector:

Diffusion: For this one I am glad we had the diffusion reflector because we wanted the beautiful sky in the background but the sun was so harsh that the diffusion reflector helped a ton!

No Reflector: I loved how bright her shirt and the plants looked but felt like it was washing her out so when I used the silver reflector I like how it seemed to balance out the colors in the photo.

With Silver:

Gold: I had the gold reflector in two different locations for these photos. I loved seeing how much the gold brightened her face up and brought out some fun color in her hair!
