Two out of the four assignments I was given in the first half of my assessment was something I'd never thought I would do. But I did end up getting positive feedback for both.
First up in the portrait assignment, we were given two tasks is to create a Hollywood Lighting portrait which you can see here and also a beauty portrait. I am generally happy with this as there are a few slight mistakes I have made and have no realised during the shoot that I had used a big aperture which resulted in some parts of the face being not in focus but also using a big aperture also have me an advantage of putting all the loose hair strands out of focus as they would of looked unappealing if they were sharp. For lights I used three lights with one on the left side of her cheek to give more light on side than the other.
Second is my beauty portrait which I am really happy with but without having a hairstylist on set it made styling the hair and trying to fix the loose hair strands a big hard. Which you can see in the photo clearly. With lights I used one light with a beauty dish and a silver reflector on the bottom.
Finally my architectural assignment which I am extremely happy with. Doing this assignment has really inspired me to try and do more architectural photography involving interiors and exteriors of houses.
