I loved being able to work with a high quality camera. For the first image I focused on the sky and used photoshop to lighten the photo and help bring out the blue sky. I then took a photo inside my car using natural light to shine on the steering wheel, speedometer, and gauges. For the focus I chose a truck light and used metering to get the truck light up close. I then took the metering off and put the camera focus on the background.

I love taking pictures of old, rustic places and buildings. To show the rule of thirds with the railroad I positioned the camera low so where the road ends and the sky meets would be in the top of the picture. I also chose the camera angle to have the tower on the left and I edited the photo in photoshop to remove the words “scare tower”. In the lead room photo I parked my car to be on the left of the photo and facing toward my camera. This allowed me to have plenty of lead room in the photo.

  1. Love your pictures! good work fulfilling the requirements and in such a creative way! I especially liked your foreground and background pictures contrasting between the truck and cars behind, you have a good eye for angles. I also liked the edits that you made playing around with the lighting and color, very nicely done.
