This photo is also from the mood challenge. I made the back ground black and white to try to show solitude. And with the photo I tried to portray focus and concentration. Like he was in "the zone." From this assignment I learned how to change the background to affect mood and where the eyes are directed to.
This shot is from the photo essay assignment. It was the hook shot, and was meant to capture your attention and begin to tell the story. My story portrayed the "Day of a Dog" so I began with the morning walk. From this assignment, I learned how to tell a story over several shots, not just a scene in one shot.
This photo was a still life. It was taken by the window, for the natural back light. I liked how the editing made the photo a little more "cartoonish." One thing I learned from this assignment is the importance of shadows.
