Reflecting light and diffused light

This first two photos are using manipulated light by reflecting the sunlight off of a white board. 

This last photo is using diffused light because it was a very cloudy day, so the light was naturally diffused. 

Playing with light

These first two photos are taken with side lighting to create a dramatic effect. 

This photo uses both backlighting and diffused light to create a warm tone and and darker mood. 

This photo uses under lighting to create strange shadows on her face make everything appear mysterious. 

This photo uses the sun as a natural way to backlight the photo.

This last group of photos from the pumpkin festival emphasize the importance of the pumpkins themselves (except for the first photo). These photos tell the story of the event through the pumpkins. Having them in each photo, brings the event together and gives it purpose.

Food at the Festival

While at the festival, I also tried focusing in on other subjects. I took enough photos that there could be enough to choose from for a subject. These next photos are focused on the subject of food and food sales. 

These first three photos are of the children that ran one of the stores. They did all of the work with an adult supervisor.

A Time For Family

These photos represent family. All of them were taken at the Hartsburg Pumpkin Festival. When taking photos of an event, I feel that to have to try to show an idea. In other words, you have to try to send a sort of message about the event. With these photos, I am sending the message that pumpkin patches are fun for the whole family. Here at the festival, everyone is happy and united.
