Final Photobook

The following is my photo book that I created for the semester. I took photos in class, at Bannock, and on my own. When I started class I really enjoyed taking photos of nature and landscapes. I now really enjoy macro and portrait photos. I love it so much that I went ahead and bought myself macro tubes and a new lens.

I have learned so much in this class and hope that you enjoy as well! I am excited to continue learning more about photography in the future too! It’s fun to look back and see how much the photography has changed.



Contest Entry

The following photo is the one I submitted in the contest I had a proved by my professor:

To get this photo I attended a photoshoot that had lots of models and photographers in the Rexburg area. This is something this Honey Productions company us starting up to get people together doing clean fun things in the Rexburg area. They are holding another photoshoot tomorrow as well. But this photo is actually of another photographer that had the companies t-shirt on. That was part if the contest, the model had to be wearing the companies shirt.
The contest I did was on Honey Productions Facebook page. It was which ever photographers photo got the most likes by the end of one week won $100. I decided to join this one because it was the photo shoot here in Rexburg area and the company hosting it is new and trying to get going so I thought it would be a good way to put my work out into the community.

Fine Art Print

The following picture is the one I had printed for my Fine Art Print:

I went back into Photoshop and edited the land to just look like a silhouette. I also sharpened the sky so that the stars were nice and crisp. I then took it into get printed. When I got the print back I was a little disappointed to see that the color about the orange and yellow lights did not show up so the picture is just mostly dark. I put my laptop screen brightness to 50% so I didn’t think it would turn out so dark. I talked with some classmates that said theirs turned out dark too so next time I use that printer I want to make sure to really lighten the photo up a bit.

Composite Images

So I did three composite images with stars included with photos of two people and the reflection of stars in an eye. I did this by going out to the sand dunes on a clear night and getting a few photos of the stars. I then edited it in Photoshop to brighten some of the stars up and to edit and also brighten the two photos of people and the eye. I hope you enjoy these star pictures! 🙂
