Travis Writing

Kicker Lighting

This is a picture of my son writing using kicker lighting as the technique. He writes a blog on MySpace as The Wise Sloth.

My intent was to make the journal the focal point of interest in this picture which is why it is the brightest object. The composition element is the triangle composed of his arms and body.

Your comments are most welcome!

Comments Suggestions and Critiques Requested!

I am taking a formal portrait photography class this fall. Any comment, suggestion, critique, observation will be most appreciated. Don't worry, you won't hurt my feelings. I'd rather read something on GoogleBlog and have the opportunity to correct it before it gets put before my class and have the teacher give his oral remarks in front of everyone else!

Our assignments include Rembrandt, Open Loop, Split-Face, Butterfly, Kicker, Flat, Rim, Reflector, Broad and Short.

We must incorporate the following types of portraits into the final submissions: head and shoulers, full body, 3/4 body, profile, fashion, boudoir, glamour, bride, high key, low key, infant, toddler, teen, senior citizen, couple, family group, sports, theater, or small product.

Here is what I have taken for week 1
