In this session, I focused on working with natural and artificial light (with some focus on posing). I started out this session with artificial light and quickly transitioned to natural light because the light hitting the side of the building created these amazing silhouettes. However, in post production, what I realized is that the light temperature, which was very yellow, didn't fit my style of photography. When I noticed this issue in post production, I converted all the images captured in that light to black & white as the colored versions really weren't connecting with me. While I'm not a proponent of using black and white to conceal less than desirable or flawed images; I decided to mask the light temperature by converting to black and white for these images.
Practicing photography takes up the bulk of my time but, it doesn't always yield desirable results. On a daily basis, I make an effort to actually do something/anything with respect to photography, even if I don't have a camera in my hand and sometimes, I am not always successful with my execution. It's not always about succeeding with flawless capture and imagery; having the knowledge to know what works, what to avoid, and what can be tweaked is invaluable on a commissioned gig.
In conclusion, practicing and having both great successes and less than stellar results, are welcomed experiences for me. I really did enjoy my session with the team and I learned a great deal about this specific light temperature that I'm not fond of and may try to avoid or use differently on future photo shoots.
