This week's assignment was to shoot a promo shot for a fictitious magazine called Design Magazine. The premise was that an upcoming conference would feature buildings and architecture in our area. We were being asked to match their style with a similar subject. This was shot outside Port Moody City Hall, on a very cold December afternoon. Many thanks to Angela, for being both my model and a good sport.
If Angela looks a bit blurred, that is intentional. That seems to be part of "Design" Magazine's style. We lost count of how many times she walked back and forth as we tried to get the blur in the right position.
This was shot on a tripod, using a 5 sec self-timer.
ISO 1/6 sec @ f 13
24-70 mm @ 36 mm
Ambient light only.
It was only during our weekly class , when we learned that the real objective was to take a shot of a person without making it look like a portrait. Don's only suggested changes were to use the PS warp tool, to straighten out the concrete at the bottom of the image; and to use the Pro Contrast filter in Nik Color Efex, to bring out some detail in the bricks.
Thanks for looking, everyone.
