Chaus



Photo By: KayCee C.

I really like this picture because of how the sunlight is shining through the trees. I tried to make sure I focused on just her, and I made it so the background was completely blurry. I really like the nature aspect of the background as well and I like how when we were out taking pictures she suggested using the tree to lean up against.

Fern Field


Name: Mikayla M.

For this photo, I made sure to make the plants look as dark as they could on Photoshop. This allowed the orange sunset to stand out completely along the silhouettes of the plants. I made the hue of the photo more orange. The tone of the photo was meant to be very warm, like a sunset. This photo was actually taken in the middle of the day on a trail though. The mountains are very visible next to the black because they were made a more gray/blue color.

Rock n Roll


Name: Mikayla M.
I used my skills to capture this photo of the historical hard rock café in Seattle. The brick had a great texture on its own so I just emphasized it with upping the contrast on the photo. The sign was a little bit worn, but I think it just added a better feel to the photo. I used cloudy white balance and helped warm up the photo a bit in photoshop.

The Sound


Name: Mikayla M.
For this photo, we went to Seattle on a cloudy day so I used the cloudy white balance. The picture was a bit dark so I used Photoshop to brighten it up. I used the hue tool to make it a bit more orange. I think the sunset-feel makes the ferris wheel stand out so much more. The land in the background was more emphasized when I used the contrast tool on it.

Brown Sugar


Photo By: Makenzie M.

Cookbook Recipe was a great assignment to work with for using a smaller depth of field. In this photo, I am holding up brown sugar for my cookies. The small depth of field allows for the viewer to see the texture of the brown sugar easily. I really enjoy this picture because of the way you can see small details in the photo.

Fading


Photo By: Makenzie M.

The assignment was single-light portrait. I took these pictures of my sister and the turn out of this one, I thought, was great. You can see the light shining on one side of her face and the darkness on the other side. I turned up the brightness of the photo to show more of the light.

The Glasses


Photo by: Makenzie M.

For this photo, I attempted to do different points of view. I did a close-up picture of my friend’s glasses to show a point of view from up close. I like that you can see a reflection in her glasses because of what she was looking at. I turned down the brightness of the photo and created more of a sharpness.

“Baby G”


Photo By: KayCee C.

I like how this picture turned out. I really like how the background is blurry and how the colors of her outfit stand out. I tried to take this picture from a lower angle because I don’t really see portraits of people from that angle as much anymore. I also like this one because it was her idea on where and how she wanted to pose.

Dramatic


Photo By: KayCee C.

I took this picture for our personal project 3 assignment.  I really like taking pictures of my cousin because she is really energetic and she laughs all the time. I took this picture while we were walking around the house and she stopped and looked up at my aunt. I really like how this picture turned out. I personally thought that this picture looked better in black and white.

Daffodil Day




Photo by: Bailey B.


I really like how the sun lit up the one daffodil more than the others. I brightened it up slightly in Photoshop, but otherwise I like how it turned out.

Cloudy Afternoon




Photo by: Bailey B.
I really like the depth of field in the background, and it was very cloudy, so I set my white balance to “Cloudy” and had to brighten it up a little bit in Photoshop.

Rocker roller


Photo By: Kevin O.


My brother was doing a project on his Foxbody Mustang by changing the cams and rocker arms. This image was taken showing what he loves to do. 

GT 5.0




Photo By: Kevin O.


This environmental portrait was of my brother who was near his 89 Mustang.  I wanted the glare of the sun to hit only one side of the hood and I think it was done okay.

the Flash




Photo By: Kevin O.


During an environmental portraits assignment, I had my brother who wanted to be my subject so we shot multiple pictures of him in his Flash suit and I went in with Photoshop to edit the rest.

Portrait




By: Chris M


I took this photo during a project called single light portrait, the purpose was to use one light and use the shadows affectively in the photo actually was not originally taking a photo of this girl, my friend was, but I thought it would be a good idea to take some while she was looking the other way to get a candid photo. I like how the light only shows half of the subject’s face.  

Sophisticated

I took this photo during a project called single light portrait, the purpose was to use one light and use the shadows affectively in the photo. I like how this photo turned out because it really set a serious tone to the picture. Also I like the edit because it made the blue shirt stand out good with the blue background.

Fresh colors




By: Chris M


This photo was taken in Seattle, more specifically at the local market. I like this photo because of all the bright colors it contains, I did not do any edits to this picture because I like the natural look of it, but I believe that with a little Photoshop editing that this photo could really stand out.

Flowers




Photo By: Courtney I.


Description: I took this photo also when working on my personal project to work on elements of composition. I love the depth of field I have in this photo as well as the color the flower puts out. I get a soft feel from this photo and personally wouldn’t change a thing.

Stone Path




Photo By: Courtney I.


Description: I took this photo when looking trying to complete my Dutch angle assignment. I filled the frame while using the leading lines composition. It adds a sort of feel to the photo I believe, and it should have some inspirational quote across it.

Stones




Photo By: Courtney I.


Description: I took this photo for a personal project where I was focusing on the elements of composition. I believe I achieved a great depth of field as well as my frame was filled just the right amount with my subjects. Also love the detail I got in the dirt and stone.

Glowing Nikes




Photo by: Kevin O.


Final installment of my personal project and I wanted to emphasize on the lights with Photoshop. So I made the signature symbol glow as well as a refined under glow near the base.


 

Godzilla again




Photo by: Kevin O.


This is an effect test with a Godzilla action figure that I made in Photoshop. I wanted to exaggerate with the lighting effects so I had to put Godzilla’s famous atomic breath.



the Flash




Photo by: Kevin O.


During our personal project, I wanted to take a photo that had some sort of dramatic light effect. The sun effect was done in Photoshop because during that day the sun wasn’t the way I wanted it to be. This deep orange color.

Dutch Angle




 PHOTO BY: Geneva T.
This photo was taken for an assignment called Dutch angle. Our goal was to take good looking photos with a little bit of an angle on them. Instead of just taking the picture straight, to get a Dutch angle you would turn the camera but not a whole 90 degrees. Dutch angle was really fun and I got a lot of successful photos out of this assignment.

Environmental Portrait




PHOTO BY: Geneva T.
This also was an environmental portrait inside of gymnastics. This is an environment to me because I spend all of my time in this place. I wanted to try and show how the bars is a part of the gymnastics environment. I also tried to show how they interact with the bar set instead of just taking a picture of them standing there.

Environmental Portraits



 PHOTO BY: Geneva T.

I took this photo for Environmental Portrait. Her environment is being t gymnastics. And I just had her pose and do something that would usually be done at practice. She is resting on the beam. I tried to incorporate the beam the background of the gym to show what environment she was in.


Playing




PHOTO BY: Natalie J.


I like this photo because my dog is cute and it demonstrates good rule of thirds. Also I think the lighting is good and not too dark or light.


 

Tree Branch


PHOTO BY: Natalie J.

 
I like this photo because I think it demonstrates good depth of field and focus. You can see the tree branch clearly and can also see the outline of a person in the background.

 

Nature




PHOTO BY: Natalie J.


I like this photo because I think the lighting is good and not usual. Also I like that it looks natural and not forced.

Puppy




Photo By: Courtney I.


Description: I took this photo for our children toys assignment. The objective was to make it so they toys looked like they were coming to life, and I believe I did meet this because it looks like the stuffed animal is dragging and playing with the dog toy.



Single Light




Photo By: Courtney I.


Description: I took this photo for our single light portrait assignment and I love the way it turned out. The lightening added such a dramatic effect that I thought brought out who my subject was.

Autumn




Photo By: Courtney I.


Description: This photo I took for an autumn themed project and I loved the way it turned out. I like the angles I got out of this photo as well. The details from the leaves I believe bring this photo together, and I don’t think I would change anything about it.

Clear Nature




By: Chris M.


This photo was taken for a project called “Macros” where we had to take close ups of an object. This was my best one just because of how clear the branch turned out. I also think what helps make this photo stand it is its excellent depth of field.    

Action


By: Chris M.

This photo was for a project where we had to take close ups of children’s toys and make them appear to be real. I think this photo does a really good job with that because it looks almost like something you would see in a cartoon.   

Lasso




By: Chris M.


This photo was a part of our long exposure project. What you’re seeing is someone spinning a strand of Christmas lights over his head like a lasso. I do not recommend doing this because it can be dangerous. But I am very happy with how this photo turned out, I believe this is one of my all-time favorites.

Long Exposure




PHOTO BY: Geneva T.
Long exposure can be difficult in trying to get just the right photo. My goal in this photo was to capture moving lights which is also known as Long Exposure. I was very successful in doing so. Even though the moving lights in the picture are a little blurred out it still looks like a good photo because I was able to compensate with the mirror in the bottom right corner being clear. I put the focus on the mirror just to give it and extra effect. The attention doesn’t have to be on the lights to make it a good picture. This picture as well was a very successful photo.

Close Up




PHOTO BY: Geneva T.
This picture was an assignment where the goal was to take picture close up and explore a different point of view of things that just the eye could not see. Taking this photo was very successful for me. I’m close up, and the picture is clear and tells a lot than just being a flower with no peddles. I am very proud of this photo.

Portrait Pic




PHOTO BY: Geneva T.
In this photo I was doing an assignment named Single Light Portrait. My goal was to use one light and make the light focus on the subject. I was pretty successful taking these photos they turned out great in the ways I was using the lighting and angles of the light.

Looking Glass




Photo by: Mazi L.


A friend of mine was posing for me, for an assignment that was due. I took very many pictures of her but this one was one of the best, if not my favorite.

Stop Here




Photo by: Mazi L.


I was just waiting for the stopped train to gather up its people and pass again, but these flashing lights in front of me gave me an idea for a different kind of photo, so I took the opportunity and took a photo or a few of this.

Dimmed Down




Photo by: Mazi L.


I was walking to one of my classes’ downtown and I looked back behind me and noticed the pretty sky. I didn’t think much besides pulling my camera out quick and snapping a picture or two before the sun and it’s colors disappeared.

“Berry Good”




Photo By: KayCee C.
For this picture I tried to get the berry in focus because it was the only bright thing, and I wanted it to stand out. I like how it also uses rule of thirds and is not right in the center. I think if I were to take this picture again I would try and get closer to the berry so it stood out more.

Train Tracks




Photo By: KayCee C.
This is by far my favorite picture I have ever taken. I love how it looks like the train tracks have a vintage look to it. I also really like the trees in the background, because it is not just train tracks in the picture and it gives more to look at. I used leading lines in this picture. It leads your eyes right to the trees.

Watery Leaf




Photo By: KayCee C.
This picture was from our personal project two assignment. I really like how the leaf looks like it was floating on water. I also like how the water cover some parts of the leaf. The water covering the leaf draws my eyes to it, and makes me want to look at it. I tried to use rule of thirds as well so it wasn’t the only thing in the picture, so there was the same amount of water as there was leaf.

Diver’s Departure




Photo By: Casey C.
This photo was taken for the “Dutch Angle” assignment. On a popular cliff diving area in Mazatlán, Mexico, I found this cross. It was untitled, but set before the sea and rocks. I attempted to capture its feeling of loss, yet keep it semi-happy because of the risk that these people take to seek thrill in the ocean. I admire the angle of this shot, although awkward at first, I feel as if it really gives the air of a sense of riskiness and edginess.

23rd Ave




Photo By: Casey C.
This photo was taken for the “long exposure” assignment. In this photo I tried to capture an up close and upward angle shot of cars passing by. I actually had to place my camera on the ground a few inches away from the cars with my wide angle lens equipped to get a proper viewing angle. With an eight second shutter speed, I fell that the photo turned out exactly how I planned, and the fresh rain helped the photo by reflecting the lights across the sidewalk and asphalt.

Deer Island




Photo By: Casey C.
This photo is the view I had from our balcony is Mazatlán, Mexico. The sun would always set over the island, known as Deer Island, and it always looked stunning. So in this photo I tried to capture the beauty of it, capturing the sun at just the right moment to streak the sky and clouds with orange. I love the silky texture to the sky and in whole I feel as if the rule of thirds very much so enhances the photo.
