Ghosting: Shutter Speed: 4sec
Out of the Box
This shoot consists of portraits, and portraits with enhancements. This was challenging at times. I found myself trying to do color matching for 3 hours with other images and then when it came time to do the color matching activity using the feature in Photoshop I wasn’t sure whether to laugh or cry because it was ridiculously easy.
Using Nikon D7200 and a 50mm Lens.
Head and shoulders (not the shampoo)
Smooth skin, whitened teeth and eyes, enhanced iris.(Original below)
Color matching background (background and over exposed shots below)
Color replacement- Blue lips and eyes (see OG below)
Reflectors are on going on my list of new loves. The difference they make are incredible. I used silver and gold reflectors and a light diffuser. All photos are taken with a Nikon D7200, Fstop: 4.5, shutterspeed: 100, ISO: 100. See below!
With a silver reflector:
Using a light diffuser:
The light is even all across and the lighting is really soft.
With a gold diffuser:
Colors look nice, bright and warm all across!
I fell in love with macro photography this week. I had a steep learning curve (focus isn’t always my friend) with this one but now I want to keep practicing and getting better. For these images I used a Nikon D7200, Macro Tubes and a 75-300 mm on top of that on top of a tripod. For lighting I used two LED lights on either side. I look pictures of a pineapple, flower, and a succulent.
I was driving around trying to find something interesting to shoot. While passing by a neighborhood I saw a beautiful wooden swing. Which much hesitation and with much help from a friend that was with me we knocked and asked they sweetest old lady, if we could take pictures of her swing.
While taking pictures of the swing I noticed a beautiful rustic barn next to the swing and started taking pictures of it. The sweet old woman came out and began telling us about herself. Shelived alone and had lived at that same for a long time. She had brought the barn with her all those years ago. Now 68, she continued to treasure the barn she built with her sister and her late father when she was just 20. It was an honor to shoot something that may seem common but meant so much to such a sweet person.
I created this image by adding the texture below to the original image. I uploaded the two images to the same Photoshop document, with the texture on top and selected the “multiply” blending mode to the top one.
I did very little editing on these images. On the picture of the door on the far left of the collage I sharpened it with an unsharpen mask and then just brightened it up and added more contrast. All I did for the rest of the images was raise the brightness and the contrast.
Shallow Depth of Field: For these pictures I used a 50mm Nikon lens on a Nikon D7200. I was so excited to use this lens because Brother Miller said it would be good for shallow depth of field. I made a reservation at the school to check one out but I was unable to find my iCard. Luckily, that night a good friend of mine who knew I was taking this class was excited to show me his camera lens and I was able to borrow his 50mm for this project.

I think shallow depth of field adds great emotion to images. I wanted images that meant something to me. I have a passion and a love for the scriptures which is where my first image came from. Using the single spot focus I focused on a quad.

I also have a love for nature, the sun had just barely disappeared in the horizon and the day was cloudy so I was nervous I wouldn’t be able to get a good image but I loved this one. The light was just enough.
Deep Depth of field: For these pictures I used 18-150 mm Nikon lens on a Nikon D7200, which is just the stock that comes with this camera. My subject for these pictures were the I-Center and the Technology Center at the BYU-I campus. With these I wanted my images to look clean and crisp and showcase campus.
ICenter, 18mm, f/4, 1/60 sec, Nikon D7200
I love big windows. I find them beautiful and elegant so I wanted these to be the main subject of this shot.
TechCenter, 18mm, f/3.5, 1/30 sec, Nikon D7200
The technology center is incredibly beautiful. It has exactly what I was looking for a crisp and clean look. There was so many people walking by, at first I tried to get shots with nobody in them but then thought: what’s a building with no people?. So then I embraced them.

I was looking forward to designing my photobook. Above all I wanted something very simple and clean so that my design wouldn’t distract from the images i’m presenting. I knew I wanted a bleed with my images and went off that idea. I started by sketching about half a dozen different designs. This one was the winner so I transferred my design from paper to Adobe InDesign.
Hi! My name is Kim and welcome to my photography page. Join me as I go on a journey this semester to learn proper photography skills in my Digital Imaging Class at Brigham Young University- Idaho.
I’m so stoked to go from complete amateur to “I took a class in college once.”I love photography and often go out with my friends and take some night shots but for the most part I really don’t know what I’m doing and am so excited to change that!
I took a visual media class a couple of semesters and enjoyed it a ton. I especially loved learning Photoshop and all the small visual communication rules.
To start off I’ll add some past photos I’ve taken and even a not so glamorous mug shot of myself. None of these photos are edited.
Let’s see how this new journey goes!
