Week Four 2017 – Shadows

A shadow is a dark area where light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object. It occupies all of the three-dimensional volume behind an object with light in front of it. The cross section of a shadow is a two-dimensional silhouette, or a reverse projection of the object blocking the light.

We have been working on a few learning techniques in learning photography.

This week our focus was on shadows.

Some shadow-less images to test the light before the experiments.

We have 5 and/or more uses of shadows in photography below:

  • Focus
  • Revealing Form
  • Directing the Attention
  • Contrast and Drama
  • Revealing Texture

Week Two 2017 – Black and White

This week we are doing an experiment.

Most of the time we go shooting nature we know nothing of the place just an idea of what we would like our images to look like therefore not following any rule or breaking them all.

So we decide to go by the books.

First this is hitting google and you get tips like;

  1. shoot in raw (we do this always)
  2. look for contrast, pattens…
  3. pay attention to shadows lines shapes…

We took on the challenge with only one lens in hand, this is what we made…enjoy

WEEK One 2017 – Sunset

Happy new year good people.

We started this year with a short trip to lake naivasha and the sun was showing off for our lenses, we took pictures of her going down.

See how we did, enjoy..

WEEK 40 – waiting on the Sun

161013-0002

This one evening as we were working on a different project the sun decided to enlighten our evening.

Nerd section:

The energy created by the Sun’s core is nuclear fusion. This huge amount of energy is produced when four hydrogen nuclei are combined into one helium nucleus.

The Sun is traveling at 220 km per second. It is around 24,000-26,000 light-years from the galactic centre and it takes the Sun approximately 225-250 million years to complete one orbit of the centre of the Milky Way.

It takes eight minutes for light reach Earth from the Sun. The average distance from the Sun to the Earth is about 150 million km. Light travels at 300,000 km per second so dividing one by the other gives you 500 seconds – eight minutes and twenty seconds. This energy can reach Earth in mere minutes, but it takes millions of years to travel from the Sun’s core to its surface.

The Sun rotates more quickly at its equator than it does close to its poles. This is known as differential rotation.

The atmosphere of the Sun is composed of three layers: the photosphere, the chromosphere, and the corona.

Now you know enjoy the rest of the images in sequence.

WEEK 31 – Group Photos [RGB]

This week we had a group as our client who needed some interesting photographs referred to us by a previous client.It was our first try doing a group photo shoot.

Our set up was a green flat grassy area, a prime lens, an assistant and of course the client.Since all colours are made from the three primary colours Red Green and Blue that was our basic concept of the shoot.

Enjoy.
