Spring Portraits

Spring Portraits - student project


Spring Portraits - image 1 - student project[Above] Canon EOS Rebel T7i with 35 mm F1.4 lens. I used ISO 100 because this helps keep the noise down, f1.8 because I like shallow depth of field when it comes to portraits and 1/800 sec because I needed to capture the movement of the model sharply. I shot RAW because I like to tweak my images on Lightroom and it helps when I accidentally over/underexpose as I can still get some detail and be able to "salvage" the image. In this photo, I was going for a playful spring vibe so I asked her to sit next to the flowers and play with them. I really liked how this image turned out, the shallow depth of field really pops her out and I also like the flowers on the foreground as it creates an idea that there are flowers everywhere.

Lighting - it was 3 hours before sunset so the sun was pretty high up, we managed to avoid harsh lines by having her back towards the sun. I didn't have to compromise shutter speed, aperture, or ISO for this shot and I prefer manual but have not played around with the priority mode.
