For my Final Project, I went to the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, on the University of Oregon campus.  It is an inspirational place with a ton of beautiful art, so it was hard for me to pick just one picture that I liked the best.

[Pt. I] I took a bunch of pictures of this lighted sign, but I decided that I like this the most. [1/60 sec. f/5 30mm]

Part II: Triangles


[Pt. II] This picture was in a graffiti book that my classmate was looking through. [1/25 sec. f/5.6 55mm]
[Pt. II] I took this photo of a random street sign. I liked how the arrow is pointing into the unknown. [1/500 sec. f/6.3 48mm]
[Pt. II] I took this picture on the LCC campus after noticing all of the interesting architecture. It is kind of odd to me to see support beams just hanging from the roof. [1/250 sec. f/10 28mm]

Art Wolfe – 500 Lives

As I have mentioned before in class, nature photography is my main interest. It was a pleasure looking at Mr. Wolfe’s photos because he is one of the very best nature photographers, in my opinion. I definitely admire his passion for conserving the beauty that we have on this planet. He embodies the saying, “Don’t just talk about it, be about it.”

Working on this project has only confirmed for me that I must do my part to show others the beauty of our earth and the creatures that coexist with us.

Sadly, Padawan can’t be released into the wild because he is just too friendly. Seriously, he was born without the proper fear of strange animals, so his handlers are scared he could be eaten if released! He seems pretty happy these days, all the same. @ Cascades Raptor Center [1/160 sec. f/5.6 200mm]
