Available light

These pictures of Graham were taken using available light in the studio in class on Tuesday.

landscape assignment

Both these images were taken on the lakeshore in Lachine, a very short bike ride from my home.

I do realize that the trees and grass and everything else on the right side are not visible, but it had become too dark out to capture. I still really like this picture because of the gorgeous purple and pink tones in the sunset. I shot this using the wrong white balance.

Again, I really like this picture because of the contrast between the two colours, blue and orange/red. By taking this picture I realized how quickly fall is approaching.

urban landscape & vantage point

(Sorry for the lateness, I thought they were due with the September 9 landscape shot)

1. Urban Landscape

I decided I would go on a journey to the Jacques Cartier bridge alone for this assignment, and see what kind of pictures I could get out of it of our skyline. My favorite was this one, because the sky has just the right amount of color that all fade nicely.

I like this image for different reasons than the first one, because there is not very much colour to be excited about. What I like about it is the lonely feeling I get, because walking around the city by yourself can make someone feel very alone and isolated. This area seemed like a place often overlooked, and I decided to take the time to look, and liked what I saw.

2. Vantage point

My idea for this image came to me when I was waiting to get on a bus (the top image), and then my idea developed even more when I looked up while on said bus (the bottom image). The two have almost identical shapes, and I thought it would make a great diptych and appropriate vantage point shots, because they were both shot straight up and down.
