Part 1 -Photojournalism
For this part of the project, I decided to go interview some of the owners of the stands at the Saturday Market.
Iso 100 28mm f8.0 1/250sec
How did you get into this?
“I started doing this before you were in college. I got great at crafting plates and ever since then I haven’t stopped. It helped me throughout college but I don’t know what I did to deserve this 40 years later. I must’ve done something bad in my past life haha.”
Iso 100 f5.6 46mm 1/100sec
How come you haven’t started selling your products yet?
“The time isn’t right, the crowd I’m aiming for doesn’t usually arrive till noon or later. I’m just trying to stay warm and hold my spot because they fill up fast.”
Iso 100 28mm f6.3 1/160sec
What’s your morning like?
“Basically consists of waking up early around six and hoping I make it to downtown on time. It’s been a real struggle lately but I just have to keep trying.”
Part 2 – Blue
Iso 100 28mm f4.5 1/1000sec
Saw this at a high school while walking my dog.
Iso 100 28mm f4.5 1/640 sec
My friend told me there was a blue skatepark and I didn’t believe him. But he proved me wrong. The Bud light was found near a recycle bin.

1/500 F/5.6 ISO 250
I shot this picture around 7 pm it was a pretty sunny day and there were only a couple of wispy clouds in the sky , we were walking around alton baker and I saw this patch of daisies and thought it’d be a nice place to take a picture.
1/400 F/5 ISO 250
I bought this frame that I thought would be cool to incorporate in the photo I took a lot of different shots at different angles, but I liked the side view the best, this was shot around 7 pm at alton baker too we were under a tree, what I liked best about this picture was the way the light highlights her eye.
1/125 F/5 ISO 800
This was my favorite out of all the portraits I took, i didn’t like it at first the colors in the original picture looked kind of funky so I decided to change it to black and white and I really fell in love with it after I changed it.

Part 1 – Portraiture
For my portrait project I already had a location in mind where I wanted to shoot at. I took my talent with me to an old rundown factory next to the old EWEB building near the river bike path. We had jumped the fence and started shooting around the site. Unfortunately we couldn’t find our way inside the building, but pictures still ensued.
My friend climbed back over the fence, I stayed on the other side to take some more pictures. This was shortly before security rolled up behind me, I was kicked out.
Part 2 – Shapes
My initial approach to shapes was just walking around town and taking images of objects and structures that appealed to me.
This was taken at the same location as my portraits.
I had the opportunity to shadow at a industrial diesel mechanic shop for my photojournalism class. In my down time I had walked around the area and shot more for my shapes project.
I took lots of pictures for the assignment, but I was really unhappy with all of them. I took this picture during our landscape assignment. I had a difficult time getting the lighting right. It was a cloudy and rainy day. I wish I would have purchased a polarized lens.
On hindsight, I think this might have been really nice in black and white. Also if I had taken it vertical instead of horizontal I could have gotten the busted light at the top of the pole.
I don’t know why, but this is one of my favorite photos.
I was taking lots of pics of this dandelion when this little guy showed up. I guess he wanted his photo taken too.
My mom helped me take this one. She has a lot of really cool lenses, and she let me use her macro fish eye to take this shot.
ISO 250 f4.5 1/50
These mirror pictures did not turn out the way I had imagined, and I would have preferred a round mirror… This was my favorite out of about 50.
ISO320 f6.3 1/160
I could not get the mirror and the book to be in focus no matter how high my aperture was. This was my favorite out of this series, this wasn’t planned we just had set the mirror down to move on to the next photos and this looked cool.
ISO 800 f6.3 1/100
This was taken downtown. I liked the church reflection, though I should have grabbed a ladder to have been able to get more of the church and have less open space up top.
ISO 1000 f7.1 1/30
This was my favorite of all of the shots I took. We were downtown taking pictures for this assignment and did this as a joke. It turned out really cool, and is one of my favorite photos of my best friend and I now.
I chose portraits because I have never went out and taken pictures of someone and had to ask them to pose and find good locations for them. This was more challenging than I thought it would be, and I still don’t know how to make my model more comfortable or more natural looking. My niece helped me with these photos. These were the best ones.
ISO 100 f2.5 1/100
This was done in an abandoned building by my house that said no trespassing… can’t be a great photographer if you follow all the rules, am I right?
ISO 125 f2.2 1/250
Again, we were trespassing… her mom probably wont let me take her out again anytime soon. These were done by the railroad tracks behind Green Health on Highway 99.
ISO 100 f1.4 1/800
We went to the Owen Rose Garden for this one… no more trespassing for this trip
ISO 100 f1.4 1/800
These archways at the rose garden made it easy to make a nice background. I really liked the rose garden, I had never shot any photos there. We had a lot of fun and it was hard to pick just 2 photos from this location.
Part 1: Fashion
ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/25 Aperture: F5
She loved the Koi pond and moved before I could take the picture. Told her to go back into the position she was in and started snapping.
ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/60 Aperture: F6.3
We wanted to get pictures with the river but lighting sucked. We were standing a couple of feet from the bridge to get the best lighting.
Part 2: Color (Yellow)
ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/80 Aperture: F32
These flowers are growing everywhere and the yellow center kept catching my eye.
ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/80 Aperture: F5.6
As I was driving down the road looking for things that are yellow, this sign popped out at me. I love how the sign is bright compared to the woods and even the purple flowers.
ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/160 Aperture: F5.6
I was at a barbecue over the memorial day week end and decided to go around and see what I can find. This flower was all by itself and was a beautiful shade of yellow.
