II chose Newport Beach Magazine because my outfit fit really well with the theme of that magazine. I really like the chic and beachy look that the magazine showed in every cover. I didnt try to recreate the look of the magazine originally. I chose my outfit and then figured out the magazine from there. I looked at the Newport beach magazine cover and got ideas for the headlines or subtitles. I used multiple fonts. They all look similar but some are bolded and others are italicized. I used black and white lettering along with pastel colors so that it wouldn't be monochrome.
We set up the photography room with studio lights and a solid color background. I played around with the poses i did because I wasnt sure what i wanted the picture to look like.
A strobe light is a light you hook up to your camera and every time it takes a photograph it flashes. You would use a strobe light to brighten the subject of the photo and you would use it by hooking up your camera with a cord to the strobe light.
Modeling light is a continuous light source while taking a photo. The purpose of this is to show the photographer how the lights are going to play against the other lights and where the shadows will fall.
A soft light diffuses light into soft, even light. It is used as a light modifier.
A reflector is a circular object that has reflecting surface. You use a reflector to direct light onto the subject.
A grey card is a card with 3 different trips of grey. Its purpose is to help produce consistent image exposure.
A radio trigger system is attached to the strobe light. It helps you Bluetooth and hook up your camera to it.
