Assignment 2 - Still life

Assignment 2 was still life. We could either set something up to shoot such as a bowl of fruit or find some natural composition that did not need arranging.

I'd been meaning to try and do some smoke shots for a while, so after a quick google on how to shoot smoke trails, it was off to the craft shop to get some black cardboard as the background.

Assignment 1: Colour Composition

Assignment 1 was on colour composition. There was a choice of techniques and you needed to select one colour which was required to fill more than 50% of the scene in each shot.

Some example techniques were colour harmony, colour contrast, low and high key colour, saturated and desaturated colours. I chose to go with a blue colour and the low key technique.
