For the portrait assignment I was happy that my roommate and her boyfriend agreed to let me take pictures of them at the gardens at BYU-I. I had a reflector for some of the photos, but not all. For the photos I did have I reflector on, I used the gold and white sides of the 5 in 1 reflector. Other than that, I had no special equipment. I enhanced the colors in each photo using vibrancy and color selecting tools. I also adjusted the brightness through the curves and levels tools. For most of the pictures, I used the sharpening tool on the eyes, and the spot healing brush to remove blemished. On the first two photos shown I whitened teeth.

If that isn’t candid enough, this is a photo I took when I told them to pretend I wasn’t there and do whatever they want.

This is a typical day of homework in the kitchen, complete with grocery bags, dishes, and toaster in the background.
For this photo I whitened their teeth, sharpened their eyes using the sharpening tools, and removed blemishes using the spot healing brush.
This picture makes me laugh every time I see it. The picture I used to match the color was shot in the same location, but the colors turned out better in the other photo.

Here is the original photo with the gray shirts.
