Iphone Xr vs. Cannon EOS M50

This picture was taken on my iphone Xr, it looks very clear and focused. All I used was the portrait mode to get the effect. It looks really good.  And it took 2 seconds to go to portrait mode and take this picture.

This picture was taken on my cannon EOS M50. I used manual focus and a filtered lens to make the colors stand out more in the picture. The focus is not as intense as the portrait mode on my phone but it looks really good here too.  It took me about 5 mins to get prepared to take this photo.

This makes me wonder if it’s necessary to spend hundreds of dollars on a camera if you already have an expensive phone with a great camera on it.

What do you guys think?

Keeping it going

This is one of my friends who I tell all the time he should model. I took this picture of him not thinking anything of it and I loved it. After sending it to him he asked me was there a way for me to make his skin look clearer. I had absolutely no idea how to do that but I told him i’ll figure something out, and I did…

I made my friends skin look flawless!! I was so excited when I sent the picture to him and he was so calm because he said he knew I would figure it out. I used photoshop, it is a bit of a process but in the end it is worth it. So now I plan of taking portraits and editing more during the summer. I have a lot of other pictures that I love with out editing them as well! I am only getting better!

 

Friends in Photos

 

Here are some pictures I took of my friends. I started realizing that I want to be a photographer who relies on natural lighting. Whenever I plan on having a photoshoot with my friends I take advantage of the lighting that is providing by the environment. That’s what makes my photos pop to me.

 

Getting Better

As I continued on my fake photography journey as all my friends called it I started getting into portraits. I forced my brother to pose and even though he didn’t want to he smiled very nice for this picture 🙂

New At This

 

When I first started getting into photography I didn’t really know what to expect and what look I was going for. I just knew that I loved taking pictures of people, mostly my family. So that’s exactly what I did. And from there I continued to just randomly snap pictures of everyone. This was one of my first pictures I took.

New Website Who Dis?

I have my own website! It’s lit!! Excited to post new creative things!

So far in this semester i’ve learned how to create my own gifs, memes, portraits, and more amazing things. I don’t even know what I am going to post on this website yet but I do know I have a lot of ideas and a lot of ways I can share them. My next post may be a photoshopped image or just an assignment from CT 101 who knows. I still can’t believe I made it this far with out having a mental breakdown.  

Can’t wait to see what I am going to create!!!
