This project was created as a final for my Concepts of Visual Literacy class. It was a group effort that I’d like to think was a success.

For the first part I photographed food, and for the second part I choose to photograph circles. The first image is of candy canes hanging off the edge of a wine class with bows inside it. I made my own makeshift lightbox to photograph it and the rest of the food images in. The second image is looking up from the bottom of the wind chime. The third is of a berry bush, and the fourth and final image is of the halos of light created by a couple of outdoor lights in my neighborhood.
Elliott Erwitt’s photography is renowned for it’s raw and honest feel and I like how effortless his photos are. His pictures of people and situations are both introspective as well as humorous and I love the juxtaposition in many of them. I enjoyed working on this assignment, it pushed me to focus on composition over technique. I’d like to strive for a similar combination of luck and effortlessness in my own work
