A throwback to portraiture & Studio light photography.

Vinny’s 21st Birthday Shoot | Magennis Park & Willowdam

  • by

Vinny’s 21st Birthday Shoot in Magennis park & Willowdam area, I was betting on the light cloud cover to aid in cutting back on the harsh afternoon light, and we were in good time with the afternoon breeze blowing in a light cloud cover for the area and so we got some really great shots.

Big thanks to Rava also known as “Die Kleurlingklong” for contracting me for Vinny’s shoot and photography at the reception venue, which was the Volkswagen People Pavilion. This was also my first time shooting there, it was really interesting and would love to have another opportunity to shoot there again with more time, also I liked how the afternoon sun pushed through the windows on the top floor.

Film-Challenge 2

The Media Workshop has set this Film challenge to put what we have learned so far to the test and feel how each role in the film making process works.

The challenge involved two teams: Girls vs Guys. Each team was given a task to create one Film skit per week – over the course of three weeks – each with different themes and durations. The trick was to start with the shortest, then adding 15 seconds every week after that.

Below are the three skits that were created by the girl’s team, also known as “The Ghelz”. #SkitChallenge – excerpt written by That’s my Crown

PS Daily Challenge Day Four – Collaging

PS Daily Challenge Day Four –
Collaging, using the cutting & selection tools in Photoshop. At first, this looked very simple and I quickly got the hang of it but I was struggling with creativity because collaging is so abstract and I didn’t want it to look too cluttered.
