David Hockney is an English painter, draughtsman, printmaker, stage designer and photographer. He's a very important contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960s. He's considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century. He is known for his photo collages and paintings of Los Angeles swimming pools.
To create these photographs I just took the same picture at different angles. I then put them all together in photoshop.
I chose this magazine because I'm a teenager and I feel that I can relate to most of the teenage things put in this magazine. I like how in this magazine there are things for girls to do and try. To emulate this magazine I added interesting captions to interest readers. I used Sans Caption Bold in white because I felt that it was very bold and the color worked well with the dark features of the magazine.
To create this magazine I sat on a chair and angled my body a little to the right and tilted my head slightly to the left. I smiled so I looked friendly and happy to be on the magazine. I went into photoshop to add the title, bar code, and captions on the side. To get everything into photoshop and look nice wasn't too difficult. The only annoying part was when I was looking for the title, in the proper size and background, it limited my options for which one I could choose.
There are a lot of aspects that are a part of making a perfect photo. A strobe light is a device used to produce regular flashes of light. There is a cord that connects your camera to the strobe light and it goes off when the shutter is released. This is used to give the photo a natural light look. A modeling light on the flash unit is used for previewing where the light is falling on your subject. A soft box is a light modifier and it diffuses the light into a pleasing soft, even light. It reduces harsh shadows. Reflectors can be used to bounce, diffuse, or flag natural and artificial light. A person may want to use a reflector to make their subject more bright. A gray card is a flat object of a neutral gray color that derives from a flat reflectance spectrum. It's typically used together with a reflective light meter, as a way to produce consistent image exposure and/or color in film and photography. Lastly a radio trigger system is normally placed on top of the camera and tells the soft box when to go off.
This image was taken on top of my toilet because I was looking for a clean white background. It may seem like a weird place to take a picture but it worked in my favor. When I took the picture I wasn’t intending for there to be any compositional rule, therefore, it’s just a picture. The camera that I used was on an iPhone 6s Plus. I wasn’t expecting it to come out so clear like an actual camera but it worked. To create this photo all I did was press the little white button on my camera screen to release the shutter. It didn’t take much to create this image which I actually like. The image is just so simple but elegant at once.
