The Magic of Reflectors

Reflectors work wonders

This assignment is to show the different ways you can use a reflector and how useful they are. I used a silver reflector outside and the gold reflector inside. The one where he is eating a cheez-it is the before a reflector and the one where he is sitting by a window is with the gold reflector. Then I also used the white side of the reflector for a white background because there was no sun to diffuse or block. I love he way the gold look on him with his red hair and completion. I think its amazing how much of a difference it makes to have that little bit of light reflecting back onto a person.

Photo book layout

I love dark lit photos and studio, so I might as well make a whole spread for it right? I wanted a dark background to go with the Low Key theme. At first I went with black, but I wanted to make the photos pop more, so I chose a super dark blue background. The layout was difficult to figure because my images aren’t the same perspective, so it was hard to match. But they all had the same unique dark feeling, which is what inspired me to put them together. Then to add a little splash of design I put the line behind my title.
