Save the Pixels Lab (5%)
Take portraits of each other outside, using a white foam core as background, creating the Richard Avedon “American West” look. Fill your frame with the white so that we don’t see any of the outdoors. Try with and without a reflector in order to fill in the shadows in the eyes. If it is sunny shoot completely in the shadow of a building (no sun in the image). You will need to photograph three people. Try to capture interesting expressions as well as fulfilling the technical assignment.
-Make sure to expose properly (knowing that your camera will want to underexpose because of the white background).
-Use a medium to shallow DOF
-If using a higher ISO (if it's dark out) then use noise reduction
-Make sure not get handshake (you may want to use a tripod)
-Use an appropriate lens so that there is only white behind the subject
Submit 3 "American West" type of portraits.
The lab must be up on your blog before the end of the day.
