Assignment 1 Part 1

This is my favorite image out of the 100 photographs that I took. I like this picture because it is simple yet a lot can be done with it. I chose a teddy-bear as my object accidentally but it turned out to be an interesting object to shoot because of it’s shape, texture and the way shadows fall on it. I also like this picture because I can see a meaning in it.


I like working the best with white on white secanarios because I felt like I benefited the most from it. It was easiest to see the difference the light makes on this scenario. I used +.5 or +1 EV stop when I shot in the daylight to remove blue. When shooting in the artificial light i tried to use same EV, however in some cases pictures turned out to be overexposed.

When shooting black on black I mostly used ISO 800 or 400, aperture value f/2.8. When editing I noticed that these photos had too much orange and yellow in them. I lingered between exposure value of 0 and +1.

For white on black I liked using -0.5 EV,and aperture value of 2.8. I mostly shot my white on black images in the artificial light. I tried to place my light source in different places but ir really didn’t make a big difference. I also used a tripod to avoid bluriness.

For black on white I initially used + or – .5 EV but it turned out the best to use zero because of the source of light that was comming down on the obecjt. Positive EV brightened my black on white pictures.
