The Focus of my Eye Photography

My name is Olivia Litwak, a student that has taken Digital Design 1 and I am in Digital Photography currently. I am 16 and a junior in high school. I enjoy writing poems, using sarcasm, and decorating cakes and cookies.

We had to use random objects to make a photo with a form of art. I used rule of thirds which drags on to make a line that distracts the eye. I used these colors because I love blue and it reminds me of the ocean.
From left to right we have composition. This means that it looks appeasing to the human eye due to the position of the objects. The middle one is run off which means that the object(s) run off the screen. I used fake flowers to get this affect. The one to the right is rule of thirds. This means that your eye follows the object from up and down or down to up or diagonally.
Due to my love of writing and my admire for books, my teacher took some books from her dad for me to photographs. I took different angles of the books set up like this directly. They all looked to similar, but this one stood out to me. Using photoshop, I made it the size 7x5 and used the adjusting tools to edit it to make it look my antique like, but add colors of modern day to jazz it up a bit.
For our texture picture, I decided to use shells for my object. I took multiple pictures and different angles with different amount of shells to create a composition to the photograph. Out of all the photos I took, this one came out the best. I say this one came out the best due to how you can see the different textures in detail as well as seeing some smoothness in the shell. I enhanced the photo by using the contrast to really get into seeing the whole shell with all it's textures and the whole way about it.
(Just saying that this looks sick and if you think otherwise, I'll cry.) I did this by cropping out the rest of the black negative space and used magic wand and using a tool to make this. I then edited it by using adjustment tools to change the color of the shells and the background to create the effect.
I signed out a camera and went to my little lake and trail to see the sunset and get nice photos. This is one I took and I edited it to darken everything to make the sun look brighter and more dominant against the trees and water.
This was taken at the same trail,but I edited it more purple than it was to add more depth to it and have the sky be focused on the clouds and water to make it all looking a light,yet dark contrast.
I love these two pictures due to one part being in focus and the rest blurred out so that the plants make the picture and there's a light colored background.
I used the same camera for the last few pictures and this one. I like this because you can see the texture of the leaves and everything is blurry, even the other parts of the flower somewhat and focus on the center part of the flower.
There's a lot of texture that makes the water look excellent. I edited this to make it more blue like the ocean. Take at Buffumville, the trail by my house
This shows texture and how the rose isn't in the middle, drawing the viewers eyes to the side. The rose takes place with its vibrant colors and it stands out from the leaves and dirt.
As my dad and I walked around the trail by my house, I told him to pose. This is what he did for it. This is a popular dance move, The Drop. I've been teaching him the "modern dance moves" such as the whip and nae nae and dabbing. He rep does it and looks for my approval. My dad sucks at this and will never get my approval for such dancing. Originally, I was going to make this black and white, but it didn't look as good that I was hoping. However, I put the filter on it and used the adjustment tool on photoshop to get a red looking blend to make it look subtle, but with a hint of adventure.
