Assignment 2: Shoot a Photo in Each Type of Light

For this assignment, we were to make three photos: one in direct light, one in diffused light and one in artificial light. I asked two of my friends to be models for this assignment, and we went to the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens. I shot at an ISO of 80 for direct light shots and 100 for diffused light and set my exposure to -.03 on my point-and-shoot Olympus camera. The troubles I encountered were mainly figuring out what to do for each shot, since it was difficult to force candid shots with my two model-for-a-day friends. It was difficult trying to make photos without there being a ton of people in the background distracting from the main focus of the photo.
