Sorry I haven’t posted in a while have been really over the holidays.
This term year 6 at my school are running this task called the passion project. The passion project is a task wich is streched over a period of seven weeks in which you chose an area you are passionate about and complete a project which involves learning a new skill. The area I have chosen to explore is photography and I’m going to learn how to use lighting and design to create amazing pictures and then post about what I have done each week. My inspiration is @runnerkimhall with her cutsy photography.
Here is a timelime.
w1/w2 – gather materials basic, learn how to use camera and set up lighting, plan
w3/w4 – plan designs, finalise all reasources and buy them
w5/w6 – Photograph everything, maybe start presentation
w7 – Create presentation, present
After chosing an area I’m passionate about I started to gather my materials. Dad dug the old camera out of the cupboard and then realised it was broken so we took to a great camera repair shop (www.expertcameracare.com.au) and got it fixed. We also made a trip to Officeworks to find some pastel coloured cardboard for a background. After that it was back home to set up my photography studio. I set up the back ground and then the lighing but when I took the photo the colours didn’t look quite right. I tried all sorts of lighting then finally got one that worked but the lines weren’t straight and the white looked funny. Hopefully have better luck next time.
Will keep you up to date.
Here are some of the the photos I took which didn’t work out.
