For this term, I want to continue to work on the same project I started just this last term, which taking pictures of circus arts; not only because it is my passion but I wanted to point out the beauty of the performing art and what the human body is capable of doing. Also I wanted to take photos of the preparations for shows such as costume and make-up.
I chose the images I thought were the strongest for my project and manipulate them in photoshop and print 17-20 images out on photo paper by the end of this term. I will still be taking pictures for quantity and quality purposes. I did some research and found a photographer that I had a style that I really liked, http://www.veroniquevial.com/soleil/index.html
Things I need to consider:
Cost - transportation and printing at API Type of camera - Canon Rebel Locations - Klamath Falls, Ashland and Medford Time availability for other people when taking pictures Lighting for indoor photography
Week 1 - look over the photos that were chosen
Week 2 - photoshop 1-2 images
Week 3 - photoshop 2 more images
Week 4 - take pictures if needed
Week 5 - have 5-6 images photoshopped
Week 6 - have 10 images photoshopped
Week 7 - 12-13 images photoshopped
Week 8 - take more pics (if needed) and have at least 17-20 images ready for printing
For my capstone in 490, I wanted to take a series of photos about circus arts and the different types of circus arts. Also I wanted to take photos of the preparations for shows such as costume and make-up. The strengths in this project were that not only it is my passion but most of the apparatuses were accessible as far as taking pictures. The weaknesses were the weather conditions restricting my traveling to take more pictures and I was under the weather most of the time (ha...ha...ha). If I had more time to work on this project, I would travel to an actual circus/acrobatic program and take pictures; that would take more money as well.
These are the photos I've chosen to work on for next term in Special Projects.
For Special Projects next term, I plan to continue working on this project. I will be taking more pictures but I'm mostly going to work on photo manipulation - like the work on this website http://www.veroniquevial.com/soleil/index.html
So this last weekend, I was part of a 3 day show. I thought to myself, "Hey! what a great opportunity to take pictures for capstone!" These pictures show the preparation until showtime!! There are a lot of pictures so bear with me ok?
This is most of our equipment for the show, you're probably asking yourself.."How the hell do get the equipment down during acts?!!" Two words --- Tech Class....and lots of it! :)
