Hi, my name is Isabella Rosario and I am a student at Oxford High School. My hobbies include playing basketball, soccer, and field hockey. Photography is something that I've always wanted to do. I hope you enjoy my page as much as me!
On the left side of your screen you will see an odd combination of objects including; shells, feathers, a beer cap, and half of a bracelet. In my picture I used the composition of symmetry. Bringing your attention to the right side of your screen you will see an online picture I found that also shows strong symmetry. In both of the photos you can see, they show the definition of having symmetry. In my picture it is a symmetrical picture because the photo is exactly lined up. In the picture that I found it is a house reflecting on the water also showing symmetry. Although both photos have the same idea the photos are both different. For example, my picture is cut like a hot dog while the other is going in the hamburger way. Finally, to end my statement, I think that both pieces show what they are meant to show but they are different too.
I think that the hands on process is better than the digital process. I came to this conclusion by watching the video and digitally making the tintype. I think that the hands on process is better because there are more things to do to it and to just sit in front of a screen and make it. I think that the hands on is better because there are more steps and it would be more valued if made with the hands on process.
The outcome of my project came out very good to me. In the final result, it did come out pretty dark but the image to me is still appealing. The process worked by putting the image with a chemical stained paper into the UV light box and then after 11 minutes of being in it, you take it out and stop the change by submerging it in water. I think that my project came out really well and if I could do anything else different, I would edit my photo to make it less dark and get it to the water more quickly.
I chose this stuffed animal Yoshi because it is my favorite character in Mario. This has meaning to me because any time I have played Mario I have played with my little brother. My little brothers are annoying and dumb sometimes but I couldn't image life without them. I love Jaiden and Nigel so much. My brothers have always been there for me even if they don't understand life right now. The Yoshi reminds me of the countless sleepovers in my room or the stupid little forts we would make with their bunk beds. I love being competitive with my little brother's on the game just makes the memories better. I will forever love my brothers and they will always be a blessing on my life.
The process of working with others while making these photos was very fun and different. Making the photos with people brings new ideas and it is just fun all around. This composition plays a role in photography because it makes the pictures more fun and more unique to come by. This idea was chosen because we wanted it to be like as if Cassie was swinging on it like a monkey. I think that one thing that we could improve is the hand placement, but everything else looks good to me.
I think that my photographic skills are developing. I think that it is growing because the technique that I use. I l prefer to photograph objects, more than people because then you can really use technique and get texture and depth. I think I have improved on working on things other than objects, but I would like to photograph something, I don't know what yet, and be good at it, by the end of the semester.
I chose to do this photo as the recreation because I knew I could interpret my brothers attitude towards each other in the photos. I used Phil's method by taking the photo exactly as it was originally made. In the original he has something on him as my brother does and the boy has a straight or pained look on his face just like the little boy. The boy behind you can't really see and I added that into making my other brother look the same. I also made sure my little brother was looking at the older brother with the same exact look that the younger brother has as well.
