Railroad Crossings



Artist: Victoria G.



This is a picture by my house; I took it because I really like how old it is. I the screws in the center of the sign are my favorite this about this photo. The sign just looks so ancient, and I love the color of the bush behind it.

Choo Choo Train



Artist: Victoria G.



I took this picture trying to find a good way to represent the Valley. I had no luck finding anything that screamed the Valley. I took this picture of the painted train, and station because for one the train goes right through the middle of the valley, and two it had the words Puyallup in it. I also liked the picture because it looks urban to me. I love how the wall is cracked in places.

Sean R. everybody!



PHOTO TAKEN BY: Tanner W.




This photo was taken for the formal portraits assignment. I changed the auto levels to make it look a little clearer. I usually take photos of my friend Sean, so this time we went to my front porch and started our formal assignment. If I had the opportunity for a “do over” I would’ve made Sean dress in some nicer clothes. Like his true religions or something.

Sexton’s landscape



PHOTO TAKEN BY: Tanner W.



For our famous photographer’s assignment we had to choose a photographer and take photos just like theirs, using their style and format for your own photos. I had John Sexton, his photos were mostly of different types of tree’s and a variety of landscaping. All of his photos are in black & white format. If I could redo this assignment I probably would’ve picked a photographer that took pictures of more interesting things.

Sakura

Cherry blossoms are one of my favorite things in spring so I decided to snap a quick picture. I got a bird in the shot on complete accident. This wasn’t edited in Photoshop at all.

Inquisitive



Photo by: Suki T.



My cat tends to tilt her head when she’s curious about what you’re doing so I decided to capture the moment with a photo because it’s so darn cute.


Puyallup Valley



Photo by: Sarah M.



I took this photo to capture the heritage of Puyallup. I really like how this photo ended up turning out. I was walking on the trail by the river when I saw this shot of the garden rows with Mt Rainer in the background. I cropped out a sun glare at the top and fixed the coloring a little bit but overall didn’t edit the photo much at all.

First Walk Alone



Photo By: Sarah M.



I took this photo while my brother and I went on a walk for the first time with one dog. I really like this photo. She was calm for probably the first time in her life looking down the river. I did some editing but not much more then brightening it.

Spring Time



Photo by: Kaycie R.



I took this picture of my neighbor’s tree. I like how the trees are close together and at the bottom there are flowers all around it. I only edited the auto levels to make the flowers stand out.

Spring Flowers



Photo by: Kaycie R.



I took this picture of our school’s flower trees. I got as close as I could and then zoomed in. I like how the background is blurry, but the stem is still in focus. I did nothing to edit it, I think it looks good as it is.

Sunburst


Photo by: Christina A.


I attempted to try and take the picture of the sunrise. When I was driving to school I saw that the sky and how pretty it looked so I took my camera out and took a picture. I had to try and find a good view to take the picture at since there was a bunch of things blocking the sky. I like how my picture turned out. If I could do something differently I would have made it so there wasn’t a bunch of extra stuff in the picture.

A Walk in the Park



Photo by: Christina A.



In this photo I went down to Decoursey Park and took pictures. I attempted to take pictures of the ducks. I thought that the picture turned out pretty cool how the background of the picture was really bright. I am happy of how the picture turned out.

Why an Orange?!



By Erica L.



This is a picture I was taking of Victoria while I was doing the senior collage assignment. We were trying to find things to do and I found an orange, and she thought it was funny because we didn’t really know who would use an orange for their senior portraits. So I decided to make the picture black and white and use the color history on the orange to accentuate the orange. I love her expression and I like how the picture turned out.

Senior Collage



By Erica L.



This was a picture I was taking of Victoria again for senior collages and we decided to put a chair into the photos. I really like this picture because I think Victoria looks great in it. I didn’t really do anything to this picture I felt it didn’t need anything done.

Victoria G.



By Erica L.



This is my favorite picture I took of Victoria while doing the senior collages. I really felt this was a great quality photo and it reminded me of pictures that are taken for actual senior portraits. The only thing I did to this picture was to auto lighting adjustment.


Dog



Photo By: Evan R.



In this photo my dog was at play out in my backyard. Her name is Mika she is a German Short-Hair. My focus of taking this picture was to capture my dog in a state of movement and physical activity. The emotion is very joyful and playful.

Alpacas






Photo By: Evan R.





My assignment was to take pictures of my wildlife because I live on a farm with many animals. Alpacas are a bread of lamas that will not spit at you unless they absolutely need too to defend themselves. When I went outside to take these pictures it was right when the sun was coming down. So I wanted to take a picture of the animals while capturing the image of the beautiful sun shining bright in the background.

2 Seniors


Photo By: Evan R.


This was my senior collage assignment. I captured two friends together for taking this photo. I incorporated the sun in this photo to give it a much cooler look. The scenery around them is at Puyallup high school and some artwork that is here.

Mount. Rainier



Photo by: Grace M.



This was taken at my friend’s house off of her back deck. I messed with curves and the contrast to make the mountain pop out a little and so it didn’t blend in with the sky.

Bouncy Ball



Photo by: Grace M.



This is my friend’s big bouncy ball that has water and ribbons inside it. We were using it for my make a splash assignment. She was holding it in the sun and it caught my eye so I started snapping some photos of it.

Spring Blossoms



Photo by: Grace M.



I took this photo when I went on walk around my neighborhood. It was a sunny day but I had the camera’s white balance setting on shade. I think it gives the photo real nice warm colors.

Via!



Photographer: Kaycie R.



I took this picture of my Best friend Victoria in our studio. I like how he whole body was above the chair and she is just like floating in the air.

Snow!



Photographer: Kaycie R.



I took this picture of my boyfriend snowboarding. I didn’t mean to cut his face off but I like hwo the snow looks just frozen.

Diggin Truffles



PHOTOGRAPHER: Max B.



My girlfriend has a dog named Truffles and Truffles likes to dig. Truffles was flinging dirt around and I got down low and snapped this picture.


Hiding Heidi


PHOTOGRAPHER: Max B.

This is a chicken named Heidi. Heidi was creeping on me and trying to get at my shoe laces when I captured this image.

Roses



PHOTOGRAPHER: Max B.



This is the thorny stem of a bush in my girlfriends backyard.

Kangaroo



Photo by: Mackenzie F.



Description: While doing our famous photographer assignment, I went to the zoo to take some photos that resembled Andrew Zuckerman’s photographs. I came out of the experience with a lot of really good pictures, this was among one of my favorites.

Lemon Splash


Photo by: Mackenzie F.

Description: For our make a splash assignment, I tried using just about everything that could survive being in water. I thought the lemon made the best splash, even though I don’t really like the pictures much.

Elizabeth



Photo by: Mackenzie F.



Description: I went to UW of Tacoma to take her senior pictures and I really like how they turned out. I think the brick window sill was a really good place to have her pose.

Drip



Photo By: Sarah M.



This photo was taken for an assignment where we made water bottle labels on Photoshop. I really like how this photo came out. It took me a couple tries to figure out lighting and good backgrounds. I did some editing it was pretty dark at first. Also for my label I needed to lighten up the edges a bit.

The valley of the mountain



Photo By: Sarah M.



I took this photo for practice. I had some issues with the camera but I think this photo turned out the best. I like how blue the sky is. In Washington the sky isn’t that clear and blue in summer sometimes, so I think being in February it’s amazing. I think the valley and the mountain depict Puyallup well.

C.Hask



Photo By: Sarah M.



This photo was taken for the winter sports assignment. Being on the team it’s hard to take pictures at competition so I had to at practice. Because of this the lighting was bad and she isn’t wearing our schools team leotard. I tried to edit it to help with the lighting issues so it came out pixilated. Overall I think the photo came out really cool.


Sean’s senior portrait



Photo taken by: Tanner W.



When taking this photo I tried to capture the last little bit of sunlight over Sean’s shoulder before it went completely down. I also wanted to make the photo as sharp and visually clear as possible. This photo was taken for our senior portrait assignment so Sean and I found some train tracks and proceeded to take our photos. I think it turned out really well and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Monster Truck



Name: Victoria G.



I chose this picture to be my selective color pictures because the truck was a really cool color. If I would have left the picture all in color but the background and the truck did not look good together. I like the picture this way I feel it is more eye catching.

Gate Way



Name: Victoria G.



I love taking pictures of nature and old urban youth. I took this picture while I went on a hike with my fiends, and we came open these bridges. I decide to add some tress and bushes in the picture because it give you the affect that you are in the woods looking at the bridge like I was that day.


The hidden bridge



Name: Victoria G.



I just loved how the colors all looked together and how it surrounded the bridge with all its different colors and different bushes twinning it’s on the bridge.

Railroad tracks


Name: Victoria G.

I love railroad tracks I have always wanted to take a picture on a railroad track but was to afraid to take any on a working track. Then one day I drove by one that looked pretty old and so I got the nerve to get out of my car and go take pictures on the railroad track.

Darkness



Photo by: Suki T.



Another picture just like my other splash assignment one. Poured water into a bowl with a pitcher. I darkened the photo up to create a feeling of surrealism.

Cascade



Photo by: Suki T.



I took this photo by lighting a bowl of water then pouring the water in with a pitcher. I darkened it with photoshop, but that’s about it.

Splashing Orange



Photo by: Christina A.



In this photo I attempted to take a picture of the orange splashing into the bowl of water. I tried to take the picture at the right time so that I got a good splash in the water. I had to work with my shutter speed to get the picture right. I was happy with how the picture came out and I wouldn’t do anything different to change it.

Sunshine



PHOTOGRAPHER: Bailey H.



When I took this photo I just literally point and shot. It was a simple but a good photo. I also changed the color of the car. It use to be blue, but there are blue STi’s everywhere! So I decided to change it to yellow :)

Jelly Bean Bottom?



PHOTOGRAPHER: Bailey H.



When I took this photo I just dropped the softball and got the splash in the frame. Then I edited the picture for the outcome to look like this.

Ice Cream Paint Job?



PHOTOGRAPHER: Bailey H.



When I took this photo I just dropped the softball and got the splash in the frame. Then I edited the picture for the outcome to look like this.

Tacoma



By: Ashley W.



This was also taken in Tacoma for my famous photographer assignment. It looked interesting & like something my photographer would take a picture of. I edited it to grayscale & added a lot of contrast to make it look like his other photos.

Bubbles



By: Ashley W.



I took this photo for the “Make a Splash” assignment at the Seattle Aquarium. I liked how the bubbles in the tank made the picture look textured. The photo isn’t edited, besides the fact that it’s resized.

Mountain



By: Ashley W.



I took this photo while in downtown Tacoma for my famous photographer assignment. I liked the snow on the mountain & how the cloud cuts through it. I edited it by changing it to grayscale & adding contrast to make it resemble the photos the famous photographer I chose took.

Hunter


Photo by: Suki T.


A photo of my cat, Alice, in which she was “hunting” while under the table. I had to adjust the color because of the flash setting, so its very vibrant.


Posted on the Block



Photo by: Chandler J.



This is a very cool urban looking picture that was taking by the South Hill Mall while sitting at a stop light. The color of the sky with the yellow bus stop in the foreground gives some great color to the shot.

Azul


Photo by: Chandler J.


With this picture I used the close up lens and thought it was awesome how you could see the seams of the jeans and every intricate detail. I also think the focus is cool because the center of the denim in the shot is clear and in focus , and the outer sides of the jeans are out of focus.


Reflections



Photo by: Chandler J.



With this picture I wanted to capture the cool reflection of the trees and house in the water. I had to get down on the water bank and lower my camera closer to the water to get this shot. I am very happy about the results of this picture and the only thing I would have done differently now that I see the outcome is not have the water line right in the middle of the picture.
