Practice Makes Perfect


Photo by: Kara M.


This is a picture of a drama class at school. She was practicing a Shakespeare monologue while her classmates critiqued her. It was hard finding a place where I wasn’t visable.


Bike Riding

I took this at the Puyallup skate park. My friend Jake is a sponsored BMX rider so I decided to take some pictures of him. The lighting was fantastic that day. I was really happy with the contrasting colors. I adjusted the colors in the ramp because they were a little dingy. Other than that, there was no editing done.

It Was An Accident

I did a lot to edit this picture. I tweaked the contrast and used the burn tool on a couple different of levels. I really like the way this picture tuned out.

Time Stand Still

I took this for the still life project. I really enjoyed this assignment and I am really happy with the turn out of the photo. I edited the contrast and turned it black and white. Other than that, there was no editing.

Holland

My brother was visiting Holland in his vacation. He brought some stuff from there. So, in my free time I took some picture of it. I hope you like it.

Music

I took this picture in the assembly at my school. I also used this picture for my still life assignment. I crop the picture a little bit to bring the subject more out.

Aaaahh

I took these picture couple months ago. I really like how the elephant is standing with his month open. Actually, he was eating the grass. I couldn’t get the picture that I wanted, but I got a good experience working with the animals.

It is time for Christmas…

Our class had assignment to take a picture of an event. I thought Christmas is the best event. That is my favorite picture. I really like how I got three balls after each other. That makes my picture so cool. I hope you like it.

Candy…

I took this picture from our Christmas tree. I really like to take picture of Christmas, because it is so colorful. The angle and the lighting are good. I change the colors a little bit, and I am happy with the results.

This is a picture that I took of my cousin when I was messing around with my camera. There was someone else in the picture but I cropped them out because I thought the picture would have been cuter with just her. And yes the picture was in color but I decided to change it to black and white. Those are the only two changes that I made to the photo.

This is another photograph that I took down at point defiance. I haven’t altered this picture either because I really liked the lighting and color. If I were to change it I may experiment with black and white, and different lighting effects in Photoshop.

Looking Up

I took this picture of my sister’s mannequin thing for my still life assignment. I honestly have no idea what it’s really called but I was happy with how the picture turned out.


Nomenclature of Sources of Emission

This photograph is of my cousin. I used her as a model for my portrait assignment. I altered it significantly. I removed color from the photo and then altered the brightness and contrast to make it more related to the model.

FOKUA

I took this picture last spring at the Garden’s at Point Defiance. I decided to post it now because, number one, I miss the sun, and you can see it a lot in this picture, and number two, because I like the depth of field. I didn’t alter the photograph at all except for cropping it. I may decide to use a sharpening mask if I were to redo the picture.

It’s KARA!

My classmate and I took this picture during class, and I didn’t have the honor of taking it, but I did mess with it on Photoshop. I cropped it quite a bit, altered the color of the eye itself and the rest of the picture. I added a lens flare just to see how it would look. I’m not quite sure how I like the picture but possibly with my next attempt a lens flare, I would know more what to expect.

Lights!

When I took this picture, where it’s blacked out, was very blurry so I edited it to make the lights the main focus of the picture. Not my favorite picture but I do like the focus of the lights; let me know what you think.

Sun Kissed


Photo by: Caitlin N.


Originally I took this picture because I really loved the sun hitting the mountains, then when looking through my picture realized that it had a sign on the top saying “Suntop Farms” and it made this picture even more beautiful for me because it really was a sun kissed.

Hidden


Photo by: Caitlin N.


This picture reminds me of hide and seek, mostly because the sun is hiding behind the tree as though it was playing hide and seek with the camera. I really liked the way it came out so I didn’t find it necessary to edit it in anyway.

This picture is my favorite, the way the sun hits the ground seems just so beautiful and peaceful; I don’t have much to say about this picture, I really just hope it can speak for itself.

Railroads

I took this picture right around Christmas time and I really ended up liking it, even though the top of the picture is slightly cut off; the colors in the sky catch my eye and the darkness bounces off of that, which I love.
