Last week of Photography Class & Week 2 Lightroom

This is definitely my favorite picture from the weekend
My last week of photography class with Nicole's Classes (http://nicolesclasses.com/classes/) was this past week and my final assignment was to work with lighting aids. Most professional photographers use diffusers and other lighting assistants, but since I'm just doing pictures for fun I didn't want to buy any of the special lighting equipment and just used a white poster board instead.



I had some trouble last week with lighting positioning and I need to go back over that section but it was cool to see the difference with and without the lighting aids. It probably would have been much more visible with the proper things but the poster board worked for me in my situation.

We were supposed to focus on direct sunlight lighting with and without the aid. (I think this one would have been better with a proper light diffuser)

Then, our last assignment was to shoot our favorite subject with portfolio worthy shots.






For our Lightroom homework, we had to develop about 8-10 pictures (4 black and white and 4 color)

This is definitely my favorite picture from the weekend


converted to black and white, I think I could have brightened the pic up a little more







We also had to do two pictures that kind of pushed our comfort zone using the black and white or color presets available on Lightroom.
