I’m watching you!


Photo by: Shabnam Azami

I took this picture in my field trip to the Woodland Park Zoo. That is my best picture from the trip. I really like how he looks to the camera, and he is in the center of the frame. I am really happy with this picture.

Spider!

I took this picture in my field trip to the Woodland Park Zoo. I am not scary of spiders and in this shot I went very close to the spider. I really like the colors of spider and I think the black background makes your eye drawn into the photo.

Nyika Primary School!

I took this picture in my field trip to the Woodland Park Zoo. That is how the schools look like long time ago. If you are not happy with your school than what did you do if you were in the Nyika Primary School.

M

I took this picture in my field trip to the Woodland Park Zoo. I could this picture M, because the form of the stones looks like letter m. I really like the sky, it is so white and everything else so bright.

Blue eye


Photo by: Shabnam Azami

I took this picture in my field trip to the Woodland Park Zoo. There are couple thing I like about this picture. First of all, the blue eye of the bird gives the picture nice effect. Secondly, the dark background matches the bird. Lastly, I think the picture is nice in focus and sharp.

Caught In the Action


By: Melissa Parker

When we went to the zoo, these monkeys were really hard to get pictures of because they run so fast. I had to keep snapping pictures in order just to get one good one. This one was my favorite though. I like how it looks when he is jumping off the tree. To me, it looks like front row seats. I would try and focus the monkey more next time.

Love Birds


By: Melissa Parker

I thought that these ducks at the zoo were pretty cute. Every time one would go somewhere, so would the other. They were like an old married couple that couldn’t go without one another. If I were to change something it would be the lighting. When I took the picture it was kind of dark so I went into Photoshop and changed a little bit of the coloring.

Twins


By: Melissa Parker

I love turtles. That is why this picture and the exhibit that I say was one of my favorites. I have only seen green shelled turtles. This is the 1st time that I have ever seen light brown shelled turtles. I thought that they were really pretty. If I were to take pictures of turtles again I would try to get more detail in my picture and focus the camera more.

Mommy Says “Scratch Your Head”


By: Melissa Parker

I also took this picture at Wildwood Zoo and all the gorillas were sleeping except for the mom and she was sitting up sticking her tongue out at everyone that was looking at her. Then she decided that she wanted to lie down and then she woke up her daughter and they started to play Simon says. That is why I named this picture Mommy says. I would probably focus more on the actions next time.

Waterway


By: Melissa Parker

I took this picture when we were at the Wildwood Zoo in Seattle. There were a lot of water places and I really liked the scene and the setting so I ended up taking a few pictures and it turned out that I really liked them. The only thing that I would probably change would be the lighting and the color.

Last before Winter


Photo by: Katie Danner

I was walking around a park when I took this picture. The sun decided to jump out for no particular reason which surprised me. I took some shots with the macro lens and this one stuck out to me. I altered the color intensity and the contrast just to see the outcome. I like the brightness in this photo but I think I like the colors a little more muted.

Hooray for the Macro Lens


Photo by: Katie Danner

In this photograph I was experimenting with the 60 mm macro lens. I like the lighting, particularly the way the sun shadows the log in the picture. This makes the contrast in the colors much more dramatic. I didn’t alter the picture except for cropping it a little.

Arachnid


Photo by: Katie Danner

This is yet another photo from the zoo. On the day we went, my group and I experienced some difficulty. The animals were perpetually too far away or sleeping with their rear ends towards the camera. One moment I turned around and there was this spider chilling on this plant. I took advantage of the macro lens I had at took some shots. I’m disappointed with the depth of field and focus in this picture, but I really like the positioning of the spider and the color contrast.

Sad Faced


Photo by: Katie Danner

This is another picture from the Zoo excursion that my class went on last week. I like this picture, but at the same time it makes me really sad. Primates have incredibly expressive faces and I really wanted to capture that, but it seems that the only emotion that I could ever grasp was one of sadness or remorse.

AMAZING!


Photo by: Katie Danner

This picture is one from my photography class’s adventure to the Woodland Park Zoo. My anonymous classmate is making an excited face atop the statue of a Komodo Dragon. I realize that the resolution in this picture isn’t the best quality, but I just really like my friends expression. If I were to redo it, I would attempt better focus.

Reduce Reuse Recycle


Photo by: Kara Merkt

I took this on a class field trip to the zoo. I used a 60mm macro lens. I’m really happy with the visual interest of this photo. The only thing I changed was the contrast so the green on the bin was a little darker.

Giving Life


Photo by: Kara Merkt

This picture was taken at my schools blood drive. I didn’t do anything to this picture, I used auto and just turned off the flash. I really am happy with the product, although it was disgusting to watch.

Carlos Andres Gomez


Photo by: Kara Merkt

This is another one that I took at the performance at UW Tacoma. I really like the silhouette of his face and the lighting. Again the shutter speed was at about 60.

Set the Stage


Photo by: Kara Merkt

I used a fisheye lens for this picture. I liked the colors of the wall and the lights. I didn’t do anything to change this picture. I also like the cemetery of this picture.

41


Photo by: Kara Merkt

I took this at a performance that Carlos Andres Gomez put on at UW Tacoma. He’s a slam poet so what he does requires passion and I think I captured that in this picture. I used the manual setting on the camera and changed the shutter speed to 60. It was extremely hard to get to this point because the lighting was so dim. I love this picture.

Strawberry Fields Forever



Photo by: Joanna Boschee`



This obviously isn’t a strawberry field… But it still makes me think of them. I took this photo last summer at sunset. And I like how well it turned out. The amount of light and focus all turned out really good.

Breakfast Time



Photo by: Joanna Boschee`



Obviously this is another photo from the zoo. This is one that I am pretty darn proud of because I went into Photoshop and did a lot of editing, and it turned out good in my opinion. I’d tell you what editing I did , but I don’t want to ruin you opinion of the photo.

“Quack Quack”



Photo by: Joanna Boschee`



I thought it was fun being at the zoo and taking pictures of animals that I can find in my backyard. Plus I saw this duck in the pond in the lion’s area. I didn’t do any editing and I’m excited with how it turned out. My setting for the camera was on close-up and that helped me to capture the water drops on his head.

Cosmo



Photo by: Joanna Boschee`



This is my cute little kitten Cosmo… except he’s not so tiny like most kittens should be. He’s always getting into everything and has this cute look in his eyes when he sees something to play with. In this case it was my camera. If I had to change something then I would try to center his head more in the frame.

Cute Cuddly Kitty



Photo by Joanna Boschee`



Here is another one taken at the zoo. I was really far from the lions, but used a lens that gave me a closer look. I went into Photoshop and did some editing to make the picture look better. I really like how this one turned out.

Gorilla



Photo by: Joanna Boschee



I took this photo at the Woodland Park Zoo. The gorillas were so much to take pictures of, especially this one. She kept sticking out her tongue and making funny facial expressions. The hard part was capturing the picture because of the glass that separated us from her and the others.


Fallen Leaves



Photo by Joanna Boschee`



A few weeks ago my family and I re-visited the graves of our uncles and cousin. When we got to the cemetery I noticed how beautiful the leaves were and the colors of fall. I like how this photo turned out and how I was able to capture the sunlight and different colors. If I were to do it again, then I might play around with the different light setting on my camera.

Teddy Bear


By: Caitlin N-Jackson



This was the cutest little girl at the zoo that was so intrigued in all the animals we were around, I felt really weird taking this picture because I didn’t know the little girl but I was still really happy with the picture because of her reflection in the window.


Sunny Days



By: Caitlin N-Jackson



I really like this picture because it looks so warm and relaxing, I didn’t change this picture in anyway just left it as is.

A Walk in the Park



By: Caitlin N-Jackson



Three amazing people who I went to the zoo with skipped there way through the zoo holding hands and laughing, I just thought that this was a really good candid moment.

The Itsy Bitsy Spider



By: Caitlin N-Jackson



Just an ordinary spider on a bush at the zoo, didn’t do anything to it but I do wish I would have cropped it slightly so that way the spider was more in focus.

Sleepy Bear


By: Caitlin N-Jackson

For a class field trip we went to the zoo and I fell in love with this guy, he is a sloth bear; he reminds me of The Jungle Book. I didn’t do anything to the picture but crop it so that he was the main focus.

Spotted


By: Kyle Bilharz

This is a picture of a leopard at the woodland park zoo. I really like this picture he just started moving from his spot on the log. I like the way I captured the look he had it just seem like he was focused on something and wasn’t going to let anything stop him. Next time I would have tried to get rid of the glare from the window but that’s about it.

Seagull


By: Zach Fuller

I took this picture in Seattle at Elliot Bay. I was watching this seagull, and just happen to take a picture of it right in the middle of this light. I didn’t do anything to this picture because I liked how dark it was.

Sleep time


By: Zach Fuller

I took this picture at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. I saw this fox just sleeping, and I thought it looked cools I took a picture. I didn’t do anything but brighten up the picture because it was a little dark.

Leopard


By: Zach Fuller

I took this picture at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. I like this picture because of the way I caught it while it was moving. I didn’t really do much I cropped it a little, and played with the contrast to make the colors of the leopard stand out more.

Old and wise


By: Kyle Bilharz

This picture is of an orangutan. He was the oldest and largest of them at the zoo. This shot just shows him munching on some snacks. Although it looks like he is trying to express himself. There’s really not much I would change about it other then try and get the branches out of the shot although they kind of frame his face.

Munchies


By: Kyle Bilharz

Here is a shot of a little bird munching on some wood in it’s are. In this shot I like the vibrant colors of the bird it stands out against the brown back ground. I’m not really sure what I would do differently in this shot I like it how it is.

Nap Time


Photo by Joanna Boschee`

Here’s a picture of my adorable golden retriever. This was taken at about midnight, and all she wanted to do was sleep. I felt bad because I had the camera in her face for a good ten minutes, but at this point, she is used to me taking pictures of her. I didn’t use the flash purposely because it didn’t look as good in my opinion (plus that would have been a little mean L )

Pumpkin Seeds


Photo by Joanna Boschee’

If you’re like me, you love Halloween because of the yummy pumpkin seeds! I took this picture as they came fresh out of the oven. What’s better is they are still in the foiled pan and that added a cool look to it. I didn’t change this picture at all because I didn’t have any good ideas of what to do to it.

Cotton Candy


By: Joe Boiles

When I took this picture I didn’t even ask too. The parents thought I was with the newspaper and asked me to take so I did. And I really don’t know why Im posting it, its just a tight picture…

Captured


By: Joe Boiles

This choose this picture because it is unique in its own way because it has a lot going on in the picture but it is all the same.

Kicking it big!!!


By: Joe Boiles

I took this picture at my friend’s daughter’s soccer game. I had to play with the shutter speed and the iso to get the picture to turn out right. Especially since there was over cast.

Medicine Wheel


By: Joe Boiles

I took this picture when the light in my room was really bright. I played with the exposure and the shutter speed and I got this.

Speed Boxer


By: Joe Boiles

I was just sitting in my room when I first got my camera. I just hit the button and this came out, to be completely honest with you…

Hey you


By. Kyle Bilharz

I’m not really sure what kind of bird this is. And I’m not really sure when I took this picture but I like how the bird is looking at you like what are you doing. And if I were to it differently I would have taken out the little side branch cause it kind of takes you attention.

Artic sleep


By. Kyle Bilharz

This picture is of an artic fox. He is enjoying his nap. But in this photo I like the way he takes up the whole shot and it makes you focus on him and nothing else. I also like the way he seems so peaceful. It I were to take a different shot of this fox I would have tried to create a little more contrast.

Reflections


Photo by: Caitlin N-Jackson

This picture is from a building window, it turned out really clear and looks like I was actually taking a picture of the sky not of the window; I didn’t edit this picture either which is pretty cool.

No title


Photo by: Caitlin N-Jackson

The darkest picture I took, I was in a building taking about 100 frames of just this area and I really just like this one because of its dark and mysterious feel. I didn’t edit this picture at all.

Untitled -


Photo by: Caitlin N-Jackson

When I took this picture I was on my way to school and I was on a really empty road and I saw this and stopped my car in the middle of the road and took about 25 frames, this one came out really good and showed everything I wanted to show.
