Emily WallacePhotography period 1 Semester 1 2016-17
This was my very first project I was assigned. I barely knew anything about cameras or photography in general at this point so to make things with objects like this was very cool and interesting. I enjoyed using everyday items to make cool complex images like this which can tell a whole lot and make you seem like you know what you're doing when you may not have any idea.
This was my second project I was assigned in Photography. The task was to take pictures of textured objects and really get them focused. I enjoyed this project because it was interesting to realize how many things around us everyday have unique texture. It was also a good way to use the camera for the first time and figure out how to use it and to learn what works and what doesn't.
The next project we had to do was landscape. This was one of my favorite projects because I love the way large areas look with all the little details in them. We went to Tower Hill and got to take pictures of the beautiful scenery there. The picture in the bottom right is my favorite. I love the way the chair looks surrounded by the plants, making the camera focus on the table and chairs.
Another one of my favorite projects we had to do was portraits. I love being able to capture peoples emotions ad whats happening in that moment by the expression on their face. My friend Victoria is in the top left and bottom right and I love how you can see her emotion shift between the two photos. My cat Lilly is also featured in this photo grid. I love how her ear is twitched back so you can see her emotion in the way shes looking down at the ground.
Our 4th project of the year was based on the concept double negatives. This was a fun experimenting project being able to layer two different pictures on top of each other to get cool textures and settings to make plain pictures more abstract. I love the third picture on the far right. I love the way the woods make her fade in and out to give it a cool looking effect. Definitely a fun project to play around with.
For my final project I decided to go with a fun idea of turning my photos into ornaments. I found this idea on Pinterest and fell in love with it and felt compelled to do it. It was a tough task to figure out how to get them to fold certain ways and to get them in the right angles but once I did it looked pretty cool. Instead of going with the ordinary Christmas tree and ornament path I went with something a little different and decided to hang my photos from a wooden stick to give it a sort of hip vibe. It was a different and unique project and I am very happy with how it came out and would definitely reccomend this project to someone in the future.
