Planning with digital journal
today will be more about planning in my digital journal. From my feedback from the last project, I need to have more detail in my evaluations. Meaning that I need to be more critical when evaluating my own work as I do so on a basic level. I need to evaluate on why and how things either went well or did not and how it can be fixed. I also need to develop my critical thinking with in my digital journal or blog. this also means that my annotations have to be more critical as well, as I said before say if something went wrong, why it went wrong and how to correct it.
I also need to link research I have found in the outcomes I have. from my feedback, I realized that it did not seam like I was using it. so for this project, I will make sure that I link the research. Also with the research, I need to explore other research methods to include in my digital journal. which could be from books, journals or film itself and how it fits in with the current project. I also need to do more deeper research and what the reasons the photographers or the movements have to their work. to do this, I need to create mind maps, sketches and lists and then analyse the research I have found. to formulate more research, I need to look at other methods other then the internet, such as magazines and tv, which uses photography and how they use it.
this week in the studio, we learned how to create edge lighting photos. these photos are done for dramatic effect, which is used for promo photography for superhero films. this is done because the lights outline the figure and brings out their mass, or muscle. the two lights face the subject from behind, usually the lights hits the shoulders in order for the light to highlight the subjects sides. there is also a third light that illuminates the subject that is placed in front of them. this light is usually dimmer then the two edge lights to keep the dramatic effect. with my photos, I noticed that with the camera I was using, it was on a low f-stop. meaning that the photo turned out darker then what was needed. By turning up the f-stop, the photo was brighter and looks more dramatic. what I found was that I had trouble focusing the camera as some of the photos turned out a little blurry.
3D effects on photos
3D imagery is used to make the image stand out. this is normally done in films to make the audience feel like they are part of the action. but with films, the 3D effect may not work with some. for example,the effect may not work with cgi if the film is a semi live action film. so that means that for the effect to work, the image/film needs to be the same throughout.
