WEEK SIXTEEN

MUSIC

Creative

Create STORY

Instead of a music video, create a photo that tells the story of a song, or a line of any song you like.
 
Moderate.jpg
 

This week, go somewhere and shoot while you're listening to your favorite music.  Get inspired and share an image that tells a story of the song (or line of a song) that you choose.  

While we were in Cambridge, England, I came across a wall with the words "TO THE RIVER" written on it with chalk.  I'm a big Manchester Orchestra fan so this shot always reminds me of their song, "The River."

WEEK THIRTEEN

COLOR HARMONY

Seeing

CREATING THE MOOD

Compose a shot achieving an intentional color scheme. (Complementary, or Gradient)

Constantly practicing and understanding color harmony is the X-factor to photography.  Color affects the overall mood of an image, and once you learn to look for it in every shot, your photography will improve dramatically.  

This week try finding a subject or subjects that demonstrate a balance of complementary colors or a color gradient.  Complementary colors are colors that sit across from each other on the color wheel.  Watch the video above and take a look at the samples below to see the difference between complimentary colors and color gradients.

WEEK TEN

SOFT LIGHT

Creative

Chasing The Light

Display an interesting use of soft lighting.
 
Easy.jpg
 

Soft light is a situation in which your subject is in an indirect path of the light source.  This tends to create less contrast and more subtle shadows.  As with everything we've talked about thus far, recognizing and understanding how to use soft light is an invaluable tool to your overall improvement as a photographer.

 
 

Again, this week you're making the rules and taking creative control.  Shoot whatever you find interesting that shows a good example of using soft light to your advantage.
