It’s officially the beginning of fall semester and we’ve stepped up into our second year in the program. I couldn’t be more excited to start in my field of concentration: Commercial Photography and branch out into the real world with internships beginning in October.
We hit the ground running with our first assignment: Dairy, where we learned how to tether and Catalog our photographs in CaptureOne. We had free range as far as what we wanted to shoot so long as dairy was the star of the photograph. I knew I wanted to shoot cheese and include milk to give the photograph some movement. I bought a few different types of cheese that satisfied my overall aesthetic for height, color and size. Brought a few props into the studio and started to improvise by slowly adding items into each photograph. Once I was happy with the lighting (Broncolor Lights) and composition I had my classmate pour milk slowly and carefully right where I needed it while i captured it on CaptureOne. Though I made a mess, I learned a lot while having fun. Great start to the semester!
