Ceramics

For part 1 of the project, I went with ceramics. I thought it would be cool to get some shots of people creating things. I was able to take some shots at the ceramics thing in the cafeteria where they were selling stuff (I forget what it was called), so one of these is from that.


My final

For my part 2 I decided to do textures. I took photos of a lot of different items so it was hard to choose only three but here they are.

Part 1

I took photos in the ceramics classroom. I’m very happy with what I came up with. I took my time and really played with the shutter speeds and aperture more than I normal.

Final Project Using Reflection

Reflection Pictures   

IMG_2970
I tried to capture the entire reflection that the side mirror gave . I wanted to capture the variety of colors in the trees.

I wanted to try something new with this particular wine glass. It was nice when I actually got some reflection of the glass. I like that the background is blurred as well. It gives the wine glass a much sharper focus.

In this photoI did something similar to Sarahs. I decided to get the reflection of me taking a picture. It came out really interesting. I used my mothers medicine cabinet which had multiple doors to open. This got different angles of the picture and camera.

I am really happy with the way this photo turned out because it has two different focuses however the reflection of the tree is the obvious focus but it is not the first thing you look at even though it is more focused than the leaves.  Notice how you can’t focus on both at the same time that way neither are a distraction to one another.

I find this photo unique because I got the reflection of a window in a picture frame. If you look closely you can see that the frame is a portrait of who happens to be my sister.

Lane Groups and Activities

IMG_3286
In this photo I wanted to capture the different variety of shapes of the pots. They were all spun and shaped by one woman.
IMG_3279
You can see the intense focus that this person has. You can see the determination in his eyes. I like the framing of this picture and that the background is somewhat blurred.
IMG_3171
I like this photo of Mark because he is engaged in the game, but he also has a smile to express that he is enjoying the game as well.
IMG_3199
I decided to take a picture of the fencing head gear. I missed the opportunity to discuss with them, but I still had a great time.

 


Learning from the genius creativity of Ansel Adams

IMG_1437 IMG_1443

Never will I complain about exploring outdoors to find beauty. When my homework involves illustrating Gods masterpiece in nature, into an photograph, there is really no room to complain.

I enjoyed learning about Ansel Adams in my research. The obvious is that he created breathtaking images of our nations magnificent landscapes. The more heart- warming was how passionate he was about preserving our environment. He used his art to convey a very important message. God gave us all of this beauty, how can we possibly sit back and watch it be destroyed? He compared a photo to a blink of God. Sometimes I feel God places us somewhere because there is something He wants us to see. It seems that Ansel and I shared that view.

I hope that my passion for the arts can lead to benefit to the world someday. Through our artistic talents, we can heal ourselves, heal each other, and heal the world.

Peace, Love, and Art


My photos in the style of Imogen Cunningham

In this photo I was trying to express Imogen's high contract of her black and white technique.

In this photo I just wanted to capture the high contrast of the Black and White.

In this photo i attempted to imitate Imogen's photo of unmade bed. It is an extremely complicated photo to copy in order to convey the story that she did. I also tired to incorporate her Triangle technique with the hair pins on the bed. They each are making a 45 degree angle. Imogen used this technique a lot in her portraits and the way she had her subjects pose.

I wanted to capture the beauty of this particular flower. I made the fore ground more clear than the back ground which is also a technique that Imogen expressed.
