Episode 1: is okey to me but from my experience is that you got to Take a good photo so you can win and be the best photographer. If I were in the show, it so is to find the best photo. I really enjoy the show because it interesting how to aim and focuses on the camera. The photographers are taking photo of miles doing photo’s. I would be very nervous to be in the show because they really looked at every detail in the photo. American’s top photographer, the contestants had to capture Miles Chamley- Wotson in action. They were given 30 minutes to get to know the model and take as many pictures as they could or wanted to take. With the task in the first episode they were shooting in a studio. Most of the contestants were well versed with studio photography. Some of them, were not and it was very clear that they didn’t completely know what they were doing. One of the contestants didn’t know anything about makeup and was lost with this part of the task. After the 30 minutes for makeup and hair, they had another 30 minutes to take photos of the models they chose. The photographers took pointers and ideas from the first task into consideration and that helped with the way their photos came out. They were all very creative and have amazing photographers. They are out of their usual comfort zone because for example Roxy shoot beautiful models posing and she’s going to need to shoot someone who fences. This shows me how professional photographers are because and how they work which I’ve never seen before because I’ve never been to a professional photographer. The judging is never racking though because you’re competing against the other people. So, what I learned from that was to be in good communication with the person you’re taking pictures of because if you just get straight to talking pictures that person would not feel comfortable at all because they don’t know what is going to happen or what you want to shoot. So first episode I learn about bonding with models and try to be cool with each other.
Episode 2: In this episode they’re going to be shooting a model’s campaign. Roxy is a lot more familiar with this and is happy that this is something that she usually does. They need a story in the photo as well to try and sell the dress. The judges believe that Roxy’s background for the photo was too busy. They think Chris’s photo was too amateur. Ja Jamaya won the contest. They think that Chris’s shoot was not showing enough of the dress and wasn’t selling the dress. There’s so much that goes into taking photographs of people that just taking a picture of them. You really need to have good composition and a story behind the photo. It also looks lie you meet kind of consider being a photographer because it looks very excited and requires a lot of talent. It also looks like you meet a lot of new people. Some things that make me scared to be a photographer is how hectic my schedule might be but I guess a lot of jobs are like that anyways. Background is an important thing for when your shooting a certain subject or model for example the model has camouflage you want to put them in the woods so they get a good theme. So yeah the second episode was all bout the background and for the subject or model to fit in the background.
