This picture is of the Pro Main start in Hollister, CA. I tried to use the rule of thirds on most of the riders, but it is hard because they are moving so fast. I added some contrast and lighted up the picture a bit.

This is a picture of my girlfriends in first period; we’re always talking, and get in trouble a lot. I took this picture for the Photo Journalism for September. I really like it, because they look pretty and I caught them laughing, it’s not completely posed. I like taking pictures of moments, not setups.
This picture was taken at my little brother’s foot ball game. I thought it was really cool, the way you see both refs doing the exact same thing across the field. I know that’s what they’re supposed to do, I just like how the picture turned out.

This picture was taken at Maerys Farm in Bonney Lake. I really like this picture because the cow looks like a deer from a cartoon, like a pretty doe. I also like the blurry bars and the sharpness of the focus on the cow. I was too short to take the picture over the fence, but I like the end result.

I took this picture at a race in Hollister, CA. I really wasn’t going for anything special but when I downloaded it on the computer I noticed how cool the scenery was. I lightened up the quad and person, and burned the background to make him stand out.

I was taking pictures of my two dogs playing out in my yard. This one kept running up to mw to try and get me to play, so when he ran up to me I took a picture of him looking up at me. I like how the short depth of field really makes him stand out.

This picture was taken in California when I was camping one weekend. I was walking around taking pictures of the scenery and noticed the clouds above this mountain. I started taking pictures and this was what I came up with. I did a levels adjustment in Photoshop to lighten up the darker tones.

This is a picture of my boyfriend Mike before homecoming. We were all outside taking pictures and I got this one. It had some people in the background making weird faces, so I had to crop it because I couldn’t edit them out. I had to dodge and burn a lot because most of the lighting was behind him. This picture kind of looks like one of those cheesy portraits that people get done for school pictures or something, but I love it because it makes me focus on him more, and I think he looks absolutely stunning in his purple tie.

This is a picture of one of my best friends Jonny. We were all working that night (McDonalds), and our timers were off, so my manager let me take some pictures for school. I took about twenty pictures of just Jonny making food, and I really like this one. These are the kind of pictures I like taking. I love the candid photos that have some sort of action in them, and this one does. I did edit out a cord to our grill slip printer because it looked like it was going up his nose, and I’m glad I fixed that because it was kind of distracting. This photo does have a lot going on, so I dodged and burned in order to make Jonny stand out a little more.
I took this picture when I was driving down 7th street. My boyfriend was driving and I yelled “MIKE STOP THE CAR!” I remembered that I had my camera in the car and that I had to take some pictures of the Fall. I took a ton of photos and I really ended up liking this one. For this picture I was squatting on the ground, and I pointed my camera at the leaves and took some pictures. I dodged and burned this picture, and I’m pretty happy with the results.
This photo was taken at a local pumpkin patch. They had a lot of gourds in a bunch of flats. For this photo I just used foot zoom to get nice detail then somewhat tilted to camera to get a interesting point of view. Once this photo was uploaded on my computer all I did was put more contrast into it so they gourds and the area’s of shadow and light were very eye catching. I don’t think I would do anything differently with this photo

In this photo is a painted pumpkin face that I found at a local pumpkin patch.
This photo was rather high up so I had to zoom in with the camera and try to keep the focus. Once this photo was uploaded to my computer I edited a little with Photoshop to increase the contrast to make the colors a little more eye catching. This photo is somewhat unique to me because it was very interesting to look at. I wouldn’t do anything different with this photo.

I took this photo of my little sister at the pumpkin patch. I thought it was cute how she was sitting on the pumpkin and she loves having her picture taken so I couldn’t resist. The only thing I don’t like is the lighting. If the lighting was better I think the photo would have turned out better. But I still like this photo.

I took this photo for the pumpkin patch theme assignment. I think the rule of thirds was very effective for this photo. When editing, I cropped the photo and adjusted the saturation and lightness a little bit because the color of the pumpkin wasn’t standing out as much as I wanted it to. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.
After carving pumpkins I decided to take this photo of the pumpkin my sister carved. I liked how there were shadowy areas and light areas. I didn’t change anything in this photo. I think it might have looked nice from a different angle though.
I took this photo in my back yard for the autumn theme assignment. I really liked how it turned out. The only thing I did to the photo was crop it a little bit, other than that I didn’t change anything. I tried to arrange the pumpkins in a way that looked nice and I also tried taking the photos from different angles and I think this is the photo that turned out the best.
This is a photo I took for the close up assignment. I liked how the main flower was in focus and the others in the background aren’t in focus. I think the lighting was good and I also used rule of thirds. The only thing I did to this photo was crop it a little bit.

In this photo, I was at the pumpkin patch looking for pumpkins for Halloween. I saw this tractor with a pumpkin on top that was surrounded by corn stalks. I thought it would be kind of interesting to take a picture of the rows of pumpkins through the corn stalks, so I did and this is how it turned out. If I were to do something differently I would probably include more than one row of pumpkins and get the lady in the background out.

In this photo, I had to take autumn pictures for an assignment. I was on a walk by my house, when I took this picture. I like this picture because on the right side of the picture the leaves are changing and on the left the trees and leaves are still green. If I were to do something differently about this picture I would include more of the green trees on the left side of the picture.
In this photo I took a picture of my dog Angel. I don’t think this picture is anything special or amazing to anyone else, but this picture means a lot to me. About a week before he died I took this picture. I was playing around with my camera, and he was lying in front of me growling at the camera, so I snapped a shot of him. If I were to change anything about this picture, I would have probably chosen a different background to take the picture in because the background is kind of boring. The boring background does direct your focus directly to the dog though. All in all, this picture makes me laugh.
In this photo, I was walking around the fair taking pictures for an assignment. I walked by this stand, and a guy was carving huge pumpkins into football players, so I snapped a shot. I really like this picture and I don’t think I would change anything about it. I find it amazing that a pumpkin can be carved into something so detailed as a football player.
In this photo I was at the football game taking pictures. The boys decided to be really clever and line up in number order and have me take a picture of them. I like the way this picture turned out. I also find it funny that they are in number order, and also in order from shortest to tallest. If I were to do something differently I should have got the bench out of the bottom of the picture.
In this photo I was just taking pictures of the football game, and got a lucky shot. The tops of the football players heads on the sideline is a little distracting, but I couldn’t get rid of them without making the whole picture look awkward. To change the colors I went into Photoshop and started playing around, I don’t exactly remember what I did though. If I was to improve this picture I probably would have stood higher up in the stands to avoid the heads of the football players on the sidelines. All in all, I think this is an amazing picture.
