siste dag

I dag er den siste dag av foto! Jeg har lært mye i klasse om aperture, kontrast, og shutter speed. Men hva jeg vil huske mest med foto klassen er hva jeg har lært om Philippe Halsman. Han var en fotografer og tok bilde av mennesker når dei hoppet. Han tok bilde av Einstein, og mange mer. Han tok òg bilder av bevegelser. I et bilde han har katten, vann, og stoler, alt i lufta. Han var en interessant fotograferer. Jeg har lært så mye om blogger. Foto var en hjelpful klasse. 


I dag me må laget en bok cover for MØRK by Tabulata Rasavik. Meg bok cover er av ei jenta. Hun har sol om en side og hun andre side er mørk. 

best bilde

Dette er min bilde det jeg tror er min beste. Inne dette bilde er mye kontrast av hunden. Hviten på hunden er viktig og den svart er veldig dramatisk. Det er veldig detaljledd au.

talking people

For this oppgave we made a CD cover for the band Talking People. In this picture, there is a black background and the light is comming from the upper right. This lighting and background gives the picture a strong contrast which also comes out with the title of the band.

5 catagories

One of our final tasks has been to put 10 pictures on our blog. The pictures need to be  which consist of pictures from 5 different catagories: Portrett; Striper, mønster og arkitektur;Collage; Lukker/blender og Dyr.

 My first two pictures would fall under the catagory of lukker/blender. The first picture is taken with an exposure time of  3 sec., an ISO of 200, and with a max aperture is 4. Because of this the picture ends up out of focus and blurry. The second picture is taken with an  an exposure time of  1/3 sec., an ISO of 200, and with a max aperture is 5. It is taken of a girl running down the hall. Again, the picture ends up blurry because of the settings. 

My third picture would fall into the catagory of collage. Here, I added in the sheep from another picture to create the collage. The pictures are taken with an exposure time of  1/500 sec. and an ISO of 200. The max aperture is 3.6. The picture was taken with good lighting making some dramatic shadows.

 My next 4 pictures fall under the catagory of striper, mønster og arkitektur. The first picture has an  exposure time of  1/160 sec., an ISO of 200, and with a max aperture is 4.3. The horizon line is in the middle of the picture making all of the lines converge into the center. The second picture is taken with an exposure time of  1/125 sec., an ISO of 200, and with a max aperture is 4.5. In this picture the corner stone is in focus while the stones behind it are all out of focus. The third picture has an exposure time of  1/100 sec., an ISO of 200, and with a max aperture is 3.6. Here, all of the lines are once again converging to the center of the picture giving the picture a dramatic pull. The fourth and final picture is taken with an exposure time of  1/500 sec., an ISO of 200, and with a max aperture is 3.6. In this picture the shadow of the straircase is what catches your eye. It has a blue tint while the rest of the picture also has varying shades of blue. 

My next two pictures fall into the catagory of dyr. They are taken with an exposure time of  1/60 sec., an ISO of 200, and with a max aperture is 3.6. With the first picture, the focus is of the dogs face so his hind leg    is out of focus, putting more emphasis on his face. In the second picture the dog is to the right of the picture and not in the center.

My final picture is one that falls under the catagory of portraits. The final picture is taken with an exposure time of  1/60 sec., and an ISO of 200. With this picture the person is not completely centered making the picture more interesting to look at. There is light comming from both the left and right sides creating a slight shadow down the center.

Philippe Halsman

Philippe Halsman(1906-1979) was born in Riga, Latvia. He was a skilled photographer who took a variety of pictures ranging from people such as celebrities, intellectuals, and politicians, to pictures of surrealism. Using subtle lighting, sharp focus, and close cropping, he created his pictures which were extremely unique for his time, and also included surprising or disturbing focuses to capture his viewers. It also caught the magazine Life’s attention as well, which ultimately earned him recognition around the world.
Working with an artist, Salvador Dali, Halsman created the “Dali Atomicus”, a picture in which the artist, his canvases, furniture, cats, and water were all suspended in mid air.
Halsman had an interesting view in taking pictures. Rather than tell his subjects to tilt their head or look straight ahead, Halsman tried to capture the true person in the picture. He stated, “It can’t be done by pushing the person into position or arranging his head at a certain angle. It must be accomplished by provoking the victim, amusing him with jokes, lulling him with silence, or asking impertinent questions which his best friend would be afraid to voice.” With this mindset he captured a famous picture of Albert Einstein pondering over his actions with the atomic bomb. He also shot pictures of Marilyn Monroe as well as other famous figures. In addition, he created a technique he called “jumpology”, in where he asked his subjects to jump into the air. His belief was that the jump revealed a persons true personality. He said, “When you ask a person to jump, his attention is mostly directed toward the act of jumping and the mask falls so that the real person appears.” Philippe Halsman was an extraordinary photographer with a unique view on life. He changed photography forever. 

”This fascination with the human face has never left me. . . . Every face I see seems to hide and sometimes, fleetingly, to reveal the mystery of another human being. . . . Capturing this revelation became the goal and passion of my life."
