Sean was tired


Photo by: Tanner W.

When taking this photo I attempted to show only a little bit of Sean and a lot of pumpkin patch but when I cropped it, Sean basically filled the entire frame so it didn’t turn out quite how I wanted it to. In photoshop I actually made the picture darker which I regret but anyways I still like the photo.

Soccer at Sparks


Photo by: Tanner W.

When taking this photo I tried to get a unique angle so I laid on the turf and captured a picture of Caitlin Gillespie during an injury. I tried to make sure that I got the lights from Sparks Stadium in the shot as well. I didn’t change anything about this photo but if I had the opportunity to re-do it I might have tried to brighten it up a bit.

Sean loves pumpkins


Photo by: Tanner W.


When taking this photo I attempted to get as much sunlight shining on my friend Sean’s face. I also tried to get to an angle where I would catch him off guard and not notice me taking a picture of him. In photoshop I played with the contrast and brightness a little bit to make it brighter and I really like the way it turned out. I wouldn’t change a thing.


Soccer Game


Photo by: Sean R.

I took this picture during our October Photo Journalism assignment and the theme was sports. My friend and I went to a soccer game on a Monday night and took some photos. What I tried to do in this picture was to capture the ball while it was in flight and moving. I really like how I got to be on the sidelines of the game so we could get a good, close picture. If I could do something different, I would change the shutter speed and capture the ball a little better, so it won’t be so blurry next time.

Giant Pumpkins


Photo by: Sean R.

I took this picture at Picha’s Pumpkin Patch for our assignment. I think it turned out pretty good with the two different colored pumpkins and then the plane in the background of the sky directly above.

Gymnastics


Photo by: Christina A.


In this photo I attempted to get a shot of bailey jumping up in the air doing one of her gymnastics moves. I used the cloudy setting on the camera when I was taking all these pictures of her I was playing with all the different lighting settings on the camera. I’m happy on how the picture came out because I took one at the perfect time of her jumping and doing the move at the same time. I messed with the lighting in photo shop and used diffuse glow to really bring out a lot of the different things in this photo.


Leaves


Photo by: Christina A.

In this photo I attempted to get an angle on the leaves so that you could see the shadow that was being casted from the leaves. I tried to get all the leaves that were on the drive way into the picture. I was happy on how the picture turned out I was able to get the shadows that I wanted and I got my goal of getting a autumn photo.

Pumpkin


Photo by: Christina A.

In this photo I attempted to get an angle on the pumpkin that you wouldn’t typically see in a photo. I didn’t mess with any different settings on the camera I tried to make it as natural as I could, without making it look really photo shopped. I was happy on how the picture came out. I liked how the pumpkin was the main focus in the picture and the colors were very vibrant.

Young love


Photo by: Tanner W.


I took this photo for the student life assignment. I wish I didn’t have to crop it because I would’ve liked to have the original photo. If I could re-do this photo I wouldn’t have made it black & white.


Andrew’s hungry


Photo taken by: Tanner W.

I like this photo because it shows really good depth of field. The mcdouble is very clearly in focus while my friend is out of focus. I also think this is more creative than just a photo of random food. If I had the opportunity for a “do over” I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Coming of Fall


Photo by: Sean R.

What I tried to do with this photo was to get depth of field. I got the background out of focus and the foreground in focus. I like how the leaves that are in focus are brown and dead while the background is all green. I am happy with the results, but one thing I could have done differently would be to do something with the camera to make it unique.

Last Signs of Summer


Photo by: Sean R.

What I tried to do with this picture was to get depth of field. I tried to get the foreground in focus and the background out of focus. I also tried to get a unique angle, but you can’t really tell when you look at the photo. I really like how clear the leaves turned out to show the single center of interest. If I could do something different I would manipulate the camera to make the photo unique.

French Fries


Photo by: Christina A.

In this photo I took I tried to get a close up on the French fries. I had to hold a steady hand to make sure that the picture came out nice and clear. The photo came out really clear; you could even see the salt that’s on them. I’m happy on how the photo came out. If I could have done it differently I would have tried to worked more on my tonal range.

Andrew changes a tire


Photo taken by: Tanner W.


When taking this photo I tried to get a unique angle by getting on the same level as my friend who was changing a tire on his car. I thought the depth of field looked pretty good with the buildings and trees in the background. I also made it black & white in Photoshop to give it more of an old photo look.


Santa’s an ornament!


Photo taken by: Tanner W.

For this photo I attempted to gain a good depth of field with the ornament being clear and the Christmas tree lights out of focus in the background. I had to stand on my tip toes in order to get a good shot of the ornament. I’m happy with the results and I wouldn’t change anything if I had a chance for a “do over.”

Mug


Photo by: Suki T.

For our selective color assignment I chose to take a picture of a mug with colored dots then turn it black and white and leave the dots colored. The end result looked very cute to me, I love polka dots.

Puddle


Photo by: Suki T.


For our winter theme assignment it wasn’t really “wintery” (i.e. snowy, etc) so I decided to just take pictures of the puddle at my bus stop. I caught the reflection of the sky and trees so it made the picture more interesting.

Christmas Lights


Photo By: Sean R.

I took this picture for my December Theme assignment. The theme was holiday/weather. I took a picture of Christmas lights to reflect that it was around Christmas time. I don’t really like how it turned out because the lights don’t really stand out that much. If I had a “do over” I would try to change the setting or white balance to try to make the lights stand out more.

Vandalism


Photo By: Sean R.

I took this picture for my December Photojournalism assignment. The assignment was to take pictures of a friend and create a story about the pictures. I decided to take a picture of a friend who is acting like he is vandalizing a car by writing graffiti on it. I think it turned out pretty good. I like how you can see the expression on his face. If I had a “do over” I would try different settings on my camera to make it better.

Snowy River


Photo by: Sarah M.


This photo was taken up by Crystal Mountain. I really like how this photo turned out. I messed with the brightness and contrast a little but overall I didn’t do a lot of editing. I liked the photo before I had to crop it. The tree in the left upper corner framed the picture more. But I still like the ending photo.

Goodbye Sunshine


Photo By: Sarah M.


This photo was taken at my house. I looked out side the window and the sunset was insane. I tried some different setting until I got this photo. I really like the ending product. I had to crop and do some little editing but not much.

Windmill


Photo by: Mackenzie F.


For our color selection assignment, I thought it would be really cool to catch a windmill while its rotating. I really like how this picture turned out.


Elizabeth


Photo by: Mackenzie F.

For our senior pictures assignment, I took my friend Elizabeth’s pictures at UW in Tacoma. I really liked how the pictures turned out and that I didn’t take them in a studio. The different backgrounds and textures add to the pictures. This one was one of my favorites.

Throw Down


Photographer: Max B.

I really like to take picture of my friends while we go out and skate and really enjoyed this backside 180 that Steve threw down at the skate park.

ROWDY RED!!!


Photographer: Max B.

This is a precious picture of my kitten Rowdy! His collar is really annoying.

Orange Leaf


Photo by: Grace M.

I took this photo at my dad’s house. I was taking photos of the trees and the ivy growing around them. I looked up and saw this lonely leaf and took a picture of it. I then turned into black and white then used the history tool on photoshop to bring the color of the leaf back.

Frost


Photo by: Grace M.

I took this photo at my dad’s house on my way to the bus stop. It was a really cold morning and everything was covered with a layer of white frost. I used a macro lens and put my camera on the macro setting and used the flash because I didn’t have a tripod with me.

Splash


Photo by: Kaycie R.

This picture I took in my sink. I was trying to get the water drop in the picture but my shutter speed was not fast enough. I thought it was kind of cool how it was blurry, yet still clear looking

Tank


Photo by: Kaycie R.

I took a picture of my dog Tank playing with his toys. He gets big eyes when he likes to play so I thought it would be funny to take. I turned the whole picture black and white and then re colored just his toy. I did not think it would turn out so cute.

Night Time Blur


Photo By: Jordan L.


What I wanted to do is to get a shot of traffic with a 2 second shutter speed, but when I went to go take the photo I forgot my tri pod at home so it made this photo a little harder. In photo shop I took all the color out of the photo then put it back in certain areas.

The Mountain Dew


PHOTOGRAPHER: Bailey H.

When I took this picture I was obviously drinking a Mountain Dew. Then I just decided to take a close up picture of it. Then it just turned out really unique! So I just edited it and just made the whole picture focus on the Mountain Dew can.

Spike’s Ricer


PHOTOGRAPHER: Bailey H.

When I took this picture I was in a parking garage in Tacoma with Zach, Spike and some kid named Brian. Basically this picture was of all the cars but Spike’s car looked the best out of all of them so I chose to just use his car. Then I decided to edit it and just keep the Si in color.

I Spy


By: Victoria G.

I took this picture because I love Christmas tree’s and my friend’s mom did a wonderful job decorating her tree. I thought that this picture looked a lot like something you see out of an I Spy book. The colors to me blend together very nicely.

Night Fall


By: Victoria G.

This picture was taken in my back yard looking up to our drive way. I really liked how the night sky was like a dark purple instead of straight black, and I love how the light brightens up the picture.

Quite time


By: Victoria G.

This picture was taken in my room, when I decide to pick up my favorite book and start to read the series all over again. I was proud of myself for reading that many pages in an hour and a half. So I took a picture of it to show my friend the next. To my surprise I didn’t think I would fall in love with how I captured the pages in the book. Now I feel like I can take what ever picture I want and make it turn into a good picture.

Ghostly


Photo by: Tanner W.

I like this photo because my breath almost looks like a ghost flying in the air. It was challenging to get a good picture for this assignment because we had to take pictures of night without using the flash. I didn’t change anything about this photo.

Performance


Photo by: Tanner W.


I really like how this photo turned out. I tried to capture the singer along with the woman standing in the background. I liked her especially because she looks so into the music, like it’s hitting her deep. I didn’t change anything about this photo, I left it as is and I am proud of the outcome.

City Flower


Photo by: Suki T.


A picture from our Seattle trip again. I found this one really bright beautiful flower, which was surprising for winter, especially in Seattle where its colder. I decided to take a picture. I adjusted the color a tiny bit.

Waterfall


Photo by: Suki T.


Another picture from our Seattle trip. I bumped up the shutter speed a bit so I could really capture the movement of the water, I’m really satisfied with the results.

Lights


Photo by: Suki T.

While in our trip in Seattle I saw this beautifully lit tree so I took a picture. I then made the picture black and white to give it kind of a classic look before darkening the shadows a little.

Architecture


Photo by: Sean R.


I took this photo when we were on a field trip to Seattle. Our teacher gave us an assignment to take pictures of certain things. One of them was to take a picture of architecture, so I saw one that looked pretty cool and took a picture of it. It turned out pretty well and clear.

Christmas Time


Photo by: Sean R.

I took this picture around my friend’s house around midnight. It was for my November Theme assignment. The theme was to be of night pictures. I took this picture with the flash off so I could get all of the Christmas lights to show up better. I think it turned out pretty good, but a little blurry. If I had a chance to do it again I would take my time to make it not blurry and perfect.

All Alone


Photo by: Mackenzie F.


Description: I took this picture while me and my cousin were at Grayland park at night. I noticed the light while we were on the swings and I loved how it looked. I started to just take pictures than asked her to pose for me. I love the way this turned out, the only thing I changed is the contrast.


Light Post


Photo by: Mackenzie F.


Description: When I was shooting my night pictures I noticed a lot of people had their Christmas lights up already, so it might be cool to take pictures of them. I liked the perspective of this picture, and how normally people wouldn’t look at the light pole that way. I wish it was clearer and more in focus.

Santa


Photo by: Kaycie R.

I took this picture of a santa in my tree. I tried getting a picture of him and part of the branches. I liked how some of the edges are a little blurry around the Santa. I also liked how it goes from less focused to completely focused by its head.

Snowman


Photo by: Kaycie R.

I took this picture of my snowman by the Christmas tree. I tried getting it so it was the only thing in the picture. I really liked the color of it. I did not edit it at all, except auto levels.

Christmas Tree!


Photo by: Erica L.

I took this picture while taking the December theme pictures and this is my Christmas tree. I really like the angle of this picture and I love how green the tree looks. I just love everything about Christmas.

The light in the Dark


Photo by: Erica L.

This was a picture I was taking while doing my night assignment and I really like it because as I was taking a picture of lights I accidently moved the camera a little and this is how it turned out. I thought it looked really cool.

Chilies


Photo by: Christina A.


In this photo I took a picture of some chilies that were being hung out in the street at this little Mexican store in Seattle. I attempted to make the chilies look unique by taking the picture from under them instead of it being taken from the front. I’m happy on how the picture turned out because the colors are bright and its very eye appealing, like it draws attention to the picture.

Fresh


Photo by: Christina A.


In this photo I took a picture of some of the fresh vegetables they have at Pike Place Market. I attempted to take a picture by trying to get all the vegetables into the frame. By doing this I tried to make it seem like there is a lot more vegetables than there really is. I’m happy on how it turned out the colors were really vibrant and I didn’t have to use any affects to make it look more appealing to the eye.
