Final Photos for Famous Person

 

For the Famous Person task, I picked these two photos. I know that both of them are the ones that on her bed, but I didn’t really like the photos of her with the desk. I really like these two photos because it shows her on her laptop. This task was hard because the person I chose is know for being on YouTube for playing Sims. I really like the natural lighting coming from her window. I did get her to pose and smile at the camera, because I kind of wanted it to look like a magazine editorial photo.

Overall I did find this task hard. It wasn’t so much finding the person, it was more about how I was going to take the photo. Going to someone’s house and seeing what I had to work with to get a good shot.

New YouTuber

For the Famous Person task, I planned to take photos of a YouTuber called Steph, who is a games YouTuber. Unfortunately she wasn’t able to help me. So then I decided to still keep the YouTuber idea and find someone else.

I asked a few of my friends if they knew any YouTubers. This was quite a problem as people only know ‘really famous’ YouTubers, I did contact some but no one got back to me. One of my friends recommended a girl called Penny who also makes Sims 4, house building videos, she has over 200 views.

I got in touch with her and I told her about this task. She said yes to taking the photos. I found out that we both like in the same area. We meet up, to talk and get to know each other. After a week or so, I then contacted her to take the photos. I went to her house to see her environment, where she creates her videos.

I took the photos in her bedroom, this was quite weird for me as I didn’t really know what her room looks like and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Looking back at my photos I think that my photos are not really exciting, there wasn’t really much that I could really have control about.

Here are the photos that I took:

Overall I found this task really hard. The only background that I had to work with is her bedroom. On the laptop she put her sims game up. She doesn’t really have a big room so there was only two areas in her room that I could take photos of, she has a desk but its facing a wall, so I found it hard to take photos of her while she’s using the desk. I did ask her to sit on her bed, looking back at the photos I like the ones which she’s on her bed. I am happy with these photos but I don’t think that they are quite exciting.

 

The Famous Person

For the Easter Project I have to photograph a ‘famous person’.

Person 1: Steph – Steph is a YouTuber, she is from the UK. She makes videos on YouTube about the EA Game Sims, she has 128, 189 subscribers. On her Instagram he has over 4000 followers.

For Steph her environment that she is know for is on the internet, so I’m still not sure on how to actually take photos of her.

YouTubers are become more and more popular, and has they gain more subscribers they become known as famous.

 

I still haven’t thought of anyone else yet. I still need to think of two more people and then narrow it down.

 

Image Analysis & Shoot Planning

In this image ambiance lighting is coming from the windows and spot lights from the left. The camera is focused on the model and slightly on the flowers. The image has a shake to it, which makes the image blurry. The lighting is coming from the left side next to the photographer. The light is shining on the models forehead, which makes me think that the lighting is looking down at the model.

In this image ambiance lighting is coming from the windows from the side of the model. The camera is focused on the model, but quite far away to capture the room as well. The lighting is coming from behind the door on the left which shines on her. The room is well lit and because it’s white, I found it harder to know where the light is.
