Taking stock images

Today Dean set us up with the task of going out into the uni grounds in groups and taking stock images.

When we got out we took more artistic shots than stock images however towards the end we took a few.

Image 1:

for this post i have inserted a large image so it is easier to see what i am talking about. This image i believe to a certain extent would work well as a stock image as the lighting is even and no dynamic shadows or distracting backgrounds. The image however is slightly out of focus the image would work better if their was more definition as the majority of the focus is on the front of the face.

This image i would believe the be the better stock imagery due to very sharp image and even lighting. The image is not really interesting however the idea of stock photo’s are about clarity and lighting. The lighting was diffused by the window of camera to the left and the sun provided enough light this image was took using portrait mode. To make this a better stock photo i would use similar lighting move the model further from the wall to reduce shadows and create a more interesting pose.


The image above i believe to be more dynamic and have better lighting as it allows the model to have more colour in the face however this is more of a artistic shot and the background in distracting and could create problems for stock imagery.
