At BYU-Idaho, I am involved in a club called the Photographics Society. We meet once a week for an hour and learn about something new each week. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills, and improve old ones. There are weekly and monthly contests available with many great prizes for the winners, including cash prizes and equipment prizes (check out the website here). Each week we learn about something new and sometimes we have the chance to learn hands-on what we were just taught. It’s such a great society and I look forward to all that I learn in it.
This last week we learned about portrait photography. One of my favorite genres is portrait photography, so I was soaking it up. We learned the tips and tricks in posing, lighting, and communication. After we had a lecture, we were able to go outside and try it out. Models were provided for us to practice. We had reflectors to help us reflect the light onto their faces to fill any harsh shadows. These models were so fun to shoot! They were very photogenic and natural in front of the camera. Here are some pictures of a few of the models: Sonja, Alex, Andrea, and Natalie.
