Creative Studio Workshop

Today we had an excellent tutorial with Jamie Collier. This was all about creating a studio at home, something which I have never done. I always assumed I would need more technical equipment for this but Jamie proved me wrong. We created a studio out of cardboard, baking paper, natural light, ironing boards (although I used a desk and dining table) For the first task we have to use what we had learnt about infinity backgrounds and using two tone backgrounds as well. I used a model of a Land Rover Defender and some tin foil around a vinyl to reflect light and the back of my laptop to use as a prop. I also utilised two more vinyls as a background and fore ground. Th resulting picture is below which was taken with my Galaxy S20 Plus which really struggled with taking a closer image. The images looked fine on my phone but looked out of focus or grainy when uploaded to my computer which impacted the result. 

The second task was more Interesting as it told us more about typologies and what they were as well as how to make a series of photos look the same and display them effectively. We were tasked to take either 4 or 9 images so we can put them through Snapspeed or Layout By Instagram in order to arrange them. I chose the latter with my images of Vinyl covers I had, arranging them so the colours went from Blue to white. I used natural light and tinfoil and used the grain of the dining table to align the vinyls and make sure each picture was the same. They were then uploaded to Layout and arranged as desired and exported. Each task was only 20 mins long so there was a bit of a rush to do both but this one was my favourite of the two due to the quality of the result

I really enjoyed today’s workshops, one of them best I;ve had in a while.
