LVT


Photo by Shabnam A.

I like this picture, because we don’t see those trees here in Puyallup. I took it on my spring break when I was walking with my friends in Las Vegas. I think it is cool how one of the trees is closer than others. It gives some nice depth of field.

I went to Las Vegas a month ago and took a lot of pictures. That is one of my best pictures. There are a lot of good elements in this picture.

Summer time

That is one of my favorite pictures. I really like how the colors in the picture go well together and don’t attract attention in one area. I think the background green contrasts well with the flower. Let me know what you think….

Relax


Photo by Shabnam A.

That picture is one of my favorite one, because I work very hard to get the shot. I took like thousands pictures of that lion. The lion was inside a glass and he couldn’t stay in one place for a second. When I saw him sitting, I thought that is the moment. Do you have any tips for me……and let me know what you think….

Bath Time


By Melissa P.


This is Daemions’ second bath. He wasn’t very happy at first and then I started pouring water on his back and he became so calm. He loved it. Whenever he has a bath now he is so soothed because he has gotten so used to them.


One Of The First Pictures


By Melissa P.

This is one of Daemions’ first pictures. I love this picture because of the way that his hands are. It looks like he is praying. He is so precious. All 8 pounds and 8 ounces of him. To bad he’s not that little anymore though.

Daemion Loves His Pacifier


By Melissa P.


This is a picture of my son. His name is Daemion. He was 2 weeks in this picture. I was just messing around with my camera and I thought this looked really cute. The only thing I did to this photo was made it black and white because I thought that it looked better.

Prepared to Play


Photo by: Katie D.

I took this photo at a Varsity Fast Pitch game. It was overcast outside but that provided for better lighting for me. The uniforms weren’t washed out and the pictures that I took turned out well overall. I only edited the levels of the picture to reduce any darkness. If I were to change the picture I would only like to be on the other side of the fence, I had trouble focusing due to the chain link fence in the front of my subject.

Winding Up


Photo by: Katie D.

This photograph was taken at Heritage Fields at Rogers High School. It is a picture of the varsity pitcher and I really like how it turned out. All that I did to edit the picture was auto-leveling on Photoshop. I like the candidness of the picture and I really just enjoy taking sports pictures.

Why so Blue?


Photo by: Katie D.

I don’t know what I really feel about this picture. I’ve never been to the circus before; perhaps this is what drew me to the picture. The flyer looked aged and reminded me of old movies and cartoons. I didn’t edit the picture at all, and I don’t know what I would do to change it, perhaps experimenting in black and white.

Just Young


Photo by: Katie D.

I took this photograph while I was out at the Daffodil Parade a few weeks ago. The two subjects are close friends of mine. I think the photo may be washed out, but I really like how well it portrays the two as a couple and as companions. If I were to do it again, I would wish to be farther away, being that I took the picture with a 70-300 lens and I was hardly five feet away.

“Come Sail Away”


By Joanna B.

Not too sure bout this picture, it isn’t the most exciting but the colors are nice and so is the focus considering how far away the ship was.

Happy Earth Day everyone!


By Joanna B.

The sky that day was amazing, the look of the clouds and sunlight all looked really cool and added nice effects to the pictures. I had a little adventure climbing down the rocks to get to the shore (while holding my camera). Once I got down there, it had a great view of Tacoma.

“The Seaweed is always greener...”


By Joanna B.

You can’t see it but there is actually a starfish in the water. When I was taking the photo, the wind blew pretty hard and caused the water to ripple. I think the texture of the water is nice and adds character to this photo.

“Will you count me in?”


By Joanna B.

I really like how this photo turned out, yes I need to give credit to Photoshop, but the way the sun light looks on the water and lights up the picture is pretty cool.

“Head under water…”


By Joanna B.

Went to Ruston Way and was lucky with the weather. I started raining bout 20 minutes later but till then I got some pretty pictures. I like the building, trees, and rocks being the frame of this photo; plus the buoy in the water. I did some minor alterations in Photoshop.

Business Hours


Photo by: Caitlin N.

I took this picture in Seattle of an antique shop; I am not really sure what I think of the picture. I think there is some class to the picture because of the dress in the window; I only edited the picture a little bit to give it an aged look. Let me know what you think.

In the Alley


Photo by: Caitlin N.


This picture was also taken in Seattle, when we were walking through the city I just happened to catch a motorcyclist in this alley and just thought it was a very real picture. I lightened the picture a little bit, it was extremely dark; let me know what you think.

Tulips


Photo by: Caitlin N.

Also in Seattle, we were where all the flowers were in Pike’s Place and I thought that this was a different perspective of the flowers; I cropped the picture just a bit to make it focused more on the flowers rather than its surroundings.

On the Pier


Photo by: Caitlin N.


I like this picture a lot, mostly because it was an in the moment picture. My little sister just got done chasing away the pigeons, and this was right after. Let me know how I did.

Public market


Kyle B.

I took this picture while in Seattle as well at the market by the water front. I like this shot because it also offers a view of the water behind it. There’s also not much to distract you from the shot itself which is nice. I only lightened up the colors a little bit other then that I didn’t do anything to it.

Lamp post


Kyle B.

This was a picture of a lamp post that I took of in Seattle. They were in a shop and I thought that it looked cool so I just took some pictures and they turned out pretty well I think. I didn’t mess with the color or the lighting just cropped it to size it down a little bit. Other then that I just like how it turned out.

Flowers


Kyle B.

I used the macro lens for this shot. I like it because it is focused on shot the one area and it just draws your attention to it. I lightened the colors a little bit and cropped it some. But mostly I just like the way the shot is and the color of the flowers.

Doughnut Hole


Kyle B.

I took this picture while on my field trip a couple weeks ago in Seattle. Its of a mini doughnut maker. I like the shot because I was able to get a clear shot of it with the original lens. I didn’t do anything to the picture except for crop it a little bit.

Public Market


Photo by: Kara M.

This is another photo form Seattle. It’s a little cliché but I like the colors and the classic element that is introduced. I retouched the colors and brightness; overall I think it turned out okay.

Students For A Free Tibet


Photo by: Kara M.

This was taken in my room; the flags are the Tibetan prayer flags. I really like the symbolism and peacefulness that they represent. My shutter speed was set on 20 and I had my window open for natural lighting.

Another Day in the City


Photo by: Kara M.

As I was walking down the street I saw this man, and I think he is the cutest old man ever. The focus is terrible but I like the I like the environment the photo was taken in.

Violin Man


Photo by: Kara M.

I took this photo in Seattle when our class went on a field trip to Pikes Place. This man was playing his violin and singing. I really liked his charisma and spunk. I can’t quite recall what my shutter speed was though. I’m pretty happy with this picture.

Western Sky


By: Kyle B.

This shot was taken while driving to my grandparents. So I took out my camera and just raised the shutter speed to try and get some shots of the landscape and sky. And this one was the one that I thought turned out the best. I lightened up the color a little bit and cropped it down but other then that I didn’t do anything to the picture.

still life


By: Kyle B.

This picture is of my grandparents cake. It is one of my pictures that I was just taking messing around with the camera and it ended up being a ok shot. So I messed with the color to lighten it a little because the picture was pretty dark to begin with and cropped it but that’s all I did to it.

M&M


Photo by Shabnam A.

I took this picture in the M&M store. You could buy anything you want in that store. I took couple picture. This picture is the colorful one and I love it.

Tulpen


Photo by Shabnam A.

I took this picture in my friend’s house. She had some nice flowers in her garden. This one is my favorite picture, because of the flower’s colors and how you can see the pollen.

Orange


Photo by Shabnam A.

This picture reminds me a picture that I saw in a commercial. I like taking picture of the flowers, because they are so pretty. I worked in the Abode Photoshop to change the color. I used Burn Tool to give it some shadows.

Running water


By: Kyle B.

This picture was taken at a restaurant. It was a little waterfall in the corner. And I had my camera in my truck and thought it would be a good shot. And to give it a different affect I lowered the shutter speed on the camera for the shot. Plus that helped bring in light because the restaurant was kind of dark on the inside. But over all I like the shot.

Friend


Photo by: Katie D.

This photo was also taken on my class’s trip to Seattle. This is a picture of my classmate and close friend. I really like it because I think it encompasses her personality and her passion. I did not alter the picture because overall I am happy with it. The lighting and focus are what I think the picture needs.

Crossing Graffiti


Photo by: Katie D.

This photo was taken on my class’s trip to Pikes Place Market in Seattle. I took this right on Pikes at an intersection filled with people and singers and homeless people. This to me is part of Seattle and this picture I think symbolizes it. I didn’t alter it, but if I did, I may crop it.

Broken Violin


Photo by: Katie D.

This is another photograph from the still life assignment. I do not like particularly like the photo. I think that the contrast between the background and subject is too distracting and the subject not striking enough. I altered the photograph on Photoshop to take the focus towards the subject and enhance the lighting and how it effected the photograph.

Daffodils


Photo by: Katie D.

This is one of the photos from my recent still life assignment. I enjoyed the assignment because instead of using a macro lens like I usually would have, I used the 70-300 and stood farther away from my subject. I used the natural lighting on a overcast day. I thought the color was much more vibrant without the aid of artificial light.

Holding Life


By: Kyle B.

This picture was taken while me and my friend had gone fishing at a small lake up near Fort Lewis. I only change the picture from color to black and white because I thought it looked better that way. There’s not much to it which is why I like it its very simple that way.
