Beaverton Hypebeast

I’ve been shooting for almost a year now mainly learning from friends & youtube until I found skillshare, and I really dig the quick and easy approach Van has toward photography. After watching both lessons I’m way more relaxed shooting and editing (that shit can take forever!), which makes it even more fun to do than when I started. I even cut my post editing time down by a couple hours following his workflow and improved the quality of my shots. Anyone already familiar with lightroom & dslrs looking to speed up and improve their photo skills would definitely enjoy this class.

For the assignment we found a cool spot in Beaverton with abandoned train tracks, a nature park, and some nike buildings with solid grey walls nearby. Lots of variety in scenery and color. The theme of the shoot was to make Mark look like a brand rep for the clothes he was wearing so I had him mimic stuff we’ve seen on Instagram when looking for a pose. We shot during golden hour so the lighting was perfect. Below I’ve got the original raw images before editing:

I had 137 shots after shooting and narrowed them down to 12, looking for my favorites of each setting (the rest can be found on my flickr). Post editing I wanted to make the fall colors pop since Mark was wearing all black. I also played with adding yellow to the highlights and blue to the shadows just to see what it would look like and it came out pretty cool. Here are the edited photos:
