Exercise 2.2 People and Activity 2

This is a second series taken from the Chinese State Circus. My intention is to complete the research for the brief for the exercise and then do a researched and planned shoot. Although I am only putting the photos up for this series, I will write an evaluation of the two series shot so far, and then when I have completed the planned exercise I will evaluate and then compare my critiques. My prefered image is photo 11. It was a mistake in exposure, where I was too slow to adapt to the change in lighting. The performer looked like she had the moon balanced on her foot (a chinese umbrella. I took the exposure down to around -3 in Lightoom, which gave me a split tone photo, exported to Photoshop, painted the over exposure back into the moon, and then used the colour replacement brush to add colour to the dresses of the 2 performers in the background. The colour replacement tool is subtle, but having some colour in their clothing gave balance to the split tone.
