Christmas Ball




Photo By: Sarah K
I took this photo as a part of our “Macro” or “Close-up” assignment in class. When taking this picture, I was trying to zoom in and get close to the subject to see detail and photograph something from a new perspective. I like this picture because you can see the ice on the tree and the ball in detail and tell that it’s from a Christmas tree, but the ice adds a cool twist.

Frozen Lights

I took this photo as a part of our “Macro” or Close-up” assignment in class. The idea of the assignment was to get in as close as possible and photograph subjects from a different perspective. I like this picture because you can see the details of the ice frozen to the lights and you can tell it’s a Christmas tree without see the whole thing. I wish the lights had been on when I was taking the picture, but other than that, I like it.

Christmas Colors




Photo By: Sarah K
I took this photo as a part of our “Photo Journalism 2” assignment in class. The idea of the assignment was to capture the essence of the season and for me, that is Christmas. For this picture I tried to capture the Christmas colors, with the red lightbulb in focus and the red and green lights blurred in the background. I like the shallow depth of field in this picture because it makes the lights in the background blurry and interesting.

Bench line




Photo by: Trent L.
For this photo I was trying for follow the line  with this buetiful hard wood bench in seattle. The way I took the photo was by finding a smoothe surface a lining the camera with the bench to make your  eyes follow the wooden bench. This phot took me acouple times to take befor I got it perfict. The only thing im dispointed with is that it gets a little bit blurry getting to the end but instead of that im happy with it.

Disney Magic

I took this photo as a part of our “Light Box” assignment in class. The idea of the assignment was for us to build a light box from a cardboard box and then use it to set up scenes and take still life pictures. I had fun setting up different scenes but the main reason I liked this one was how bright and happy it is. Mickey Mouse and the other characters are happy by themselves, but the bright beads add a fun effect to the picture. I took pictures of this scene several different ways, but liked this arrangement the best because the sharp focus is on Mickey and Minnie but Donald is still a part of it. When I originally took the pictures, my white balance was off but I was able to fix the coloring of the pictures in Photoshop.

Thirst

I was in Seattle on a trip when I came across birds by the drinking fountain. I know that the birds in the cities are more comfortable around humans and they let me come closer to take the picture other than the birds in PHS because they are more afraid of humans. I’m happy with this photo because it makes the birds seem more like humans by drinking out of the water fountain. I had attempted to get leading lines to draw the eye to the birds a bit more and it worked out a little bit. I would have however changed the photo to look a bit dirtier and made the photo black and white for a darker feel to provide more emphasis.

Evergreen

I chose this photo because I like how it shows depth of field and rule of thirds. Also, the colors in this photo give off a wintery feel. I like the detail that the image shows and I am very happy with this photo.

Birds in Sky




Photo by: Julene E
This is a photo of a pretty sunrise in my neighborhood. In mornings if there is a pretty sunrise I take a picture of it with my phone. But since I had my camera with me I used it to my advantage. I’m glad the sky was the only colorful focus, and everything else turned into silhouettes. I didn’t use any fancy settings. I just pointed and shoot. It turned out great. I’m really happy with this photo. 

Neon Lights




Name: Campbell A.
In this photo, I tried to show the contrast of the bright lights. The bright pink and yellow lights leave a lasting image with their specific brightness. If I could try to redo this assignment, I would want to take the photo straight on instead of a side perspective.

Flash

For this photo is was on long exposures. U had gone out around 8 o’clock at night and set my shutter speed on a longer shutter. I had waited till cars came by on the over pass to get a cool looking picture od there tail lights going by.

As Autumn Falls




Photo By: Stacia P.

I took this while on a walk around my neighborhood. I enjoy the vibrant colors that are seen in the leaves and the depth of field shown in the photo. Both of these elements used allows there to be a good image created. The one thing I would change in this photo is to have a clearer center of interest. Technically, the leaves are the center of interest but I believe that if there was one leaf as a center of interest it would create a better photo.

Octopus




Photo By: Stacia P.
This photo was taken for the light box assignment. I had to build a light box or light tent out of a cardboard box and take photos of items in the light box. I like this photo because it’s simple but it also has a nice contrast of between empty space and the orange object. I used rule of thirds for this image because the octopus is in the bottom left corner. Both the contrast and the usage of rule of thirds allows the viewer’s eye to be drawn to the object.

Hen and Chick Plant




Photo By: Stacia P.
I took this photo for the Personal Project assignment. I was trying to expand my usage of framing. At first, I didn’t even think of using the other plants to frame the center of interest but I think that when I did use them to frame it a good photo was created. I made it so the focus is sharp on the one hen and chick plant because that way your eye is drawn to it. It also helps that there is a frame of other hen and chick plants because it gives a good depth of field to the image. Overall, I am extremely happy with this photo.

Autumn Plants

I took this photo as a part of our “Light Box” assignment in class. The idea of the assignment was for us to build a light box from a cardboard box and then use it to set up scenes and take still life pictures. I had fun setting up different scenes but this one was probably my favorite because of the autumn colors and the sparkly pear. I like the way it turned out, with the closest flower in sharp focus and the things behind it more blurred. When I originally took the picture, my white balance was off so it came out kind of orange but I was able to correct the lighting in Photoshop.

Rusty Bolts




Photo By: Sarah K
I took this photo as a part of our “Personal Project” assignment in class. The idea of the assignment was for each person to choose a style of photography that they wanted to work on and develop. I chose close-up photography. For this picture I tried to get in as close as I could to fill the frame and photograph subjects from a unique perspective. The subject is actually a wheelbarrow, but I got in so close that you can’t tell because all you can see is a bolt and part of a wheel. I still this it is a cool picture, and the rusting metal adds an interesting feel to it.

Pine

I chose close-up photography. For this picture I tried to get in as close as I could and photograph subjects from a different perspective. I like this picture because you can tell it’s from a pine tree, but you are looking at the pinecone from below and the shallow depth of field allows the surrounding pine needles to be blurred.

Light Drive




Photo By: Rachael P.
I had taken this photo for an assignment called Long Exposure. I had originally thought the road would be busier when I would take the photo so the picture would be lighter. It did not happen but the photo turned out cool any way. (I believe it looks like I caught the flash). The lighting or brightness shows how city life is like, and the beams are the cars that passed on by. I like how the photo takes the light from the city but has the people from the town.

When I started this assignment I did not know how I would take this picture. I thought I would do some test shots first, so I handed my blue flash light to my brother. I told him to twirl it around and an amazing picture came out (it doesn’t look real). I had wanted to show light with depth and I had wanted a cool look out of it. That was what I got. I’m really proud to have taken this picture and I hope to take more just as good.

Big Shoes to Fill




Photo By: Rachael P.
This photo was taken with a light box for an assignment. I tried to make a photo describing how I felt about growing up. I have so many things expected of me, I don’t even know what to expect of myself. I had to mess with the lighting a little bit to get the correct color background. I wanted the puppy to look very small so I had it at the very front end of the shoe as well as in it as well to show size difference. I am happy with the results of this cute hardworking photo. I would however like to try a bigger scale between other objects as well, in the future.

Daisy Squad




Photo by: Julene E
This is a photo of a few daisies. It is part of a photo walk we did. I was walking in some grass and found a group of daisies. I thought the daises look really nice for a simple photo. I put the photo into photo shop and auto corrected everything. This photo is cute and I like that it only focused on one daisy.

Baby Giggle and Rilakkuma




Photo by: Julene E
This is a photo of my doll, baby giggles and my phone case, rilakkuma. This is part of my light box project. I thought it would be a cute theme to have a baby doll and a teddy bear together for a series of photos. I just propped up the baby doll with a stack of cards and just leaned rilakkuma on baby giggles. I went to photo shop and auto corrected the whole picture. I really like this picture.

My Only Friends




Photo by: Julene E
This photo is part of my self-portrait. It is myself with a half skeleton makeup and I am holding my favorite stuff animals. I am wearing half skeleton because I felt that shows my personality; when I am at school I’m more happy but at home I’m more sad, hence the half makeup. My stuff animals represents everything I care about and I’m trying to hold it together. It wasn’t too difficult to take the photo. Just getting myself and my animals in focus was a little challenging since I had to take the photos by myself. I’m really glad that the picture looks the way it does.   

Wind Chime




Photo by: Kaitlin S.
I like this photo a lot because it uses back lighting to add more detail and depth to the photo. Because the wind chime is blacked out there is another level added to the photo.

Web




Photo by: Kaitlin S.
I chose this photo because I really like the detail in the photo. I also like how the colors create a certain mood when you look at the photo. I thought that a spider was also a very interesting subject.

Temple

I chose this photo because I like the detail it shows and all the colors in the photo. The rule of thirds also helps to make the photo more appealing.

Unknown




Photo by: Brooke M.
For this photo I was out in my front yard taking pictures. Then I started to turn and my eye caught something orange. I then realized that this scarecrow was the perfect subject so I stared clicking away but the straight on views were not that great so I moved to a different angle and that’s what did the trick. Moving the angle of the photo can change it so much.

The path




Photo by: Brooke M.
For this photo I had gone out to take pictures of lines I was by the railroad so why not take the some picture of that. I had uses depth of field so you are really focused in on the beginning but as it gets further out of the tracks it is on longer in focused.

America




Photo by: Brooke M.
For this photo I had taken it using the light box. For the light set up I was only use one light ton the top and not all three lights. I had also edited this photo an what I did was take color out of it so it was kind of black and white but still had the colors of America in it.

Flower



Photo by: Alissa M.

I like how this photo has such a great use of colors. The flower has at least 4 different shades or colors in the photo. I like how the flower stands out and how the aperture did a good job with that. This photo has a little uniqueness to the photo as well because of the hole in the flower.

Droplets on Pumpkin




Photo by: Alissa M.
This photo was fun to create because it just got done raining outside and so there was raindrops on the pumpkin and the lighting was good so it made the raindrops on the pumpkin stand out pretty well. I like how the pumpkin looks defined by me darkening the photo. I like how this photo turned out.

Pumpkin




Photo by: Alissa M.
This photo I took of the small pumpkin was taken at a local pumpkin patch. I like how the pumpkin looked so vibrant along with standing out because of a good background. It wasn’t very hard to capture this image but I did have to position it in an okay place to sit so I could get the full affect it should have. With the lighting I got it allowed the pumpkin the stand out the way I intended it to. This photo overall used a good use of lighting, center of interest, and aperture.

Looking through the branches of life!




Photo by: Trent L
In this photo I attempted to take a picture of the light coming straight through the branches/water in the rain. First I found the subject and the I went under neith the tree look up got water in my eye and decided to take a picture through the branches. At the end the picture actualy turned out pretty good to me.  

The Great Pumpkin



Photo by: Julene E

This is one of the huge pumpkins at Spooner’s Pumpkin Patch. This photo is part of my autumn project and I wanted to take my camera over to the farm, to take fall photos. All I did was doing was focusing and taking the pictures but most turned out to white. I was really impress that the color of the photo looked like I put it in Photoshop. I normally don’t edit my photos but this one edited itself. I am very happy that it turned out to be an amazing picture.

Loneliness


Photo by: Joshua B.
This photo was from a school project called self-portrait. The reason for this photo was to show people my not so serious side, and that I often like to joke and mess around. To get me in the photo I turned on the cameras 10 second timed photo, I then set the camera on a shelf. After I set the camera up and put the ISO to 640, I then clicked the shutter release button and ran to get into place. If I could retake the photo I would of taken it during the day, this would have been better as there would have been more natural light.

The road to somewhere


Photo by: Joshua B.

To get this photo I laid my camera on the road to get a unique perspective. I also had my white balance changed to shady as it was quite shady and getting dark quick. I then pot my f stop to 5.0 and my shutter speed to 2.0 in order to brighten the photo. If given the opportunity to retake this photo, I would not retake this photo because I liked the unique angle and different color.

Safe to Crack


Photo by: Joshua B.

This was a photo from our self-portrait project. I attempted to incorporate items I owned in order to give a sense of me as a Pearson. In this specific photo I wanted to use this “safe cracker” puzzle to show my love and skill for problem solving. In order to create an emphasis on the puzzle I centered it and made the back ground blurry, this also made it so the photo wouldn’t be crowded with meaningless objects. I like this photo and if I had the chance to go back, I honestly would have to say that I wouldn’t of changed it one bit.
