52 Week Project: Number 20

20 weeks into this project. What this means is Jordan and I have had 20 portraits. It's pretty crazy. We both have learned a lot. Trying all kinds of techniques that we learn.

Anyway on to this week self portrait. Not much to say about this one. I used a basic three lighting set up. I wanted to keep it simple. I decided to use the X100s again. Instead of using it at 1000th like last week I used it at 500th at f/8. I really love this camera. The color out of the camera is awesome. The sharpness on point. 

Anyway onto the lighting setup. I used a soft box off to the left of me. Also there is a hair light right above me. Last there is a accent light behind me. Below is the lighting set up.

That's it for this week. Sorry for the short post.

52 Week Project: Number 18

So as some of you might know, my camera broke (sad face). I should be receiving it today, hopefully.

Anyway onto week number 18. I decided to bust out the good ol Fuji x100s for this one. I'm just going to say this. I FREAKIN LOVE THIS CAMERA. Why have I not been using this camera all along?! With the built in neutral density filter and a leaf shutter so I can shoot at 500th of a second with strobes. Yes the sky is the limit with this camera. I do need to pick up the wide angle attachment for this camera. Would be sweet to have. 

I keep forgetting that I have it with me. Now I have an eye-fi card and can view my images on my Ipad. Oh well, I will be using that camera just a little bit more and might start a personal digital film series.

So with this image I wanted to go for a more film look. Something a 1970s camera would have. I also wanted to keep it simple. With one light and one camera. I think I accomplished just that.

Photographed with the Fujifilm x100s

Recently I made a couple of big purchases for myself. One of which is a new camera! The fujifilm X100s (or Ethel if you are following me on instagram) is now my pride and joy. From the beautiful colors to the amazing sharpness. This camera is an excellent add on!

Trying to lug around Betty (Canon 5d mark ii) is the worst. I wanted something to walk around with and enjoy taking photographs. I currently am working on a new series to keep me entertained called the digital rangefinder. The rangefinder diaries is already taken by my good friend and photographer Dan Bassini who is the reason why I went to Hallmark!

I will be updating my flickr as well as set up a portfolio on my website! The images I have snapped so far amazes me. To add another twist to the photos I will be editing them in VSCO Plugin for LIghtroom! What VSCO does is edits digital photos to look like old film cameras!

Here is the link to my Flickr where most of the photos will be going. I'm more then positive that I will do a couple of blog post on some of the photos and how I edited some!
