Shelby Chae Portfolio

I love to look back on memories that I have experienced throughout my life. Using my photography is my favorite way to do that. Whether it may be of me and my friends, or just a simple moment that I would like to cherish forever. Often, I tend to take lots of pictures of animals. Since I want to be a Veterinarian in the future, animals are a big part of my life. With that said, you can call my style of photography with just simply images that reflect my life.

This is my cat Luca. I shot this photo because he looked really cute in this pose. His eyes really stand out against his darker fur pattern. f /5.6, 1/30 sec, 55 mm, ISO 1600
The meaning of this image is to stand out from everybody else and to take your own path. All the paper airplanes are flying in one direction, showing the flow of everybody else. However, my paper airplane is flying in the opposite direction, against the flow. My paper airplane is also a different color than the rest of the white ones. ISO 100, 39mm, 1/320 sec, f/5.6
This is my dog Cody. I liked the little snowflakes that fell all over his face while we were playing fetch outside in the snow.ISO 20, 6.6 mm, f/2.8, 1/280 sec
This is frost that formed on my car window one morning. The album is titled "Thirteen" because it was 13° outside. I like the little details in each frost shard, they remind me of little leaves. ISO 20, 6.6 mm, f/2.8, 1/200 sec
This is my best friend Jasmina. I shot this picture of her as she was reaching up for a branch on a tree. ISO 20, 6.6mm, f/2.8, 1/280 sec,

From the beginning of this year, I had no idea how to work a camera. All I knew was to point the lens at something pretty and press the button. Now, I know most the features and settings a camera uses to change the pictures. When I shoot photography now, I will adjust the settings to ensure I get the best quality image as a can and I also like to add meaning to my photographs. For example, I used an image of the hallway lockers as one of my photo challenges at the beginning of the year. I thought it looked cool with all the lines and the symmetry, but honestly it was a boring photo. Now, I love to add contrast and make my pictures have a deeper meaning like my photo with the paper airplanes.
