Just thought I drop by and give an update to the task I gave myself at the start of the year.
Just to recap, last year I set myself some tasks/challenges regarding my photography and this year I set myself a new set of tasks to improve my photography. Click on the link to see what I set myself and why I am doing it.
Looking up other Photographer
I started looking at other photographers but really not taken any notes of any styles of techniques I like to use. So really need to start looking at other photographers and take note of their style.
Capturing Facial Expression
Again I started doing this at the start of the year but fell back into old habits of not giving facial directions into how I want the facial expression should be.
I’m not sure how to go about telling someone how to make the facial expression I want. I don’t know if I should demonstrate it with the person or maybe some people are uncomfortable in making facial expression for what I need. I think a bit more research into this.
Shooting in Manual
This so far has been my biggest success and biggest challenge. I have got to grips with the understanding the trifecta of ISO, shutter speed and f stop. But knowing the trifecta just takes me a small time to get the settings correct, which slightly slows down the photo taking process.
I am enjoying taking photos in manual mode. It’s not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I thought during Comic Con, I would revert back to my old mode and fall back into old ways, but thus far, I haven’t which has surprised me.
“One more thing”
I’ve started a new photography website, for projects and occasion where I am not shooting cosplay but still want a platform to showcase my work. I hope to be updating that website weekly with some exciting projects in the pipeline.
If you are interested, head over to AitchKayCee.com to see work. Also, I’ve reinvented my Instagram account which is link to my new website. Please if you can also follow my other social media account, I would really appreciate this.
