10 Best Senior Photos

I like this picture because of how the leaves frame her face and how happy her smile looks.  I loveeee this picture because of the brightness of the flowers above her head and how her gaze is up. I also like how the leaves frame her in this picture as well.

 I like this picture because of the focus and the depth of field (the background behind the metal thing is blurry but everything else is in focus). I also like her expression and how I took it in landscape and not portrait.  I love this picture because of the alternating brick background. I also like his pose and how he is looking off and not straight at the camera.  I like this picture because of the focus and background and how he is looking at the camera.
 I think the lighting is really cool in this picture (I used a light bar) and I love his pose too. 
 I love this picture because of the focus and how naturally happy she looks. I also really love the background.  I like how I edited this picture and just left the greens satur…

Best 10 Nature Pictures

This field trip I really tried to branch out. I used a zoom lens for the majority of the trip and am very satisfied with the results. Overall, I like how these pictures came out and I look forward to shooting nature photography again.  "Twisted"
This picture was of a tree that had two branches that grew out to make a natural hammock looking swing. I saw this part of the tree and thought it was interesting how the two branches twisted together. Composition wise, i really like how sharp the focus is and the exposure is good too. "Afloat" I was shooting with the long lens as I saw this duck and I wanted to see how far I could zoom to get as close as I could to the duck. I love how the focus came out as well. "Branch Out" This tree was super tall and I knew I wanted to shoot it from a looking up angle but I wanted it to look different than all the other ones I've seen like it so I puled out the long lens and tried to really focus on the design of the tre…

Before the Curtain Opens

I came up with this idea when I remembered that I had a performance coming up in ballet. This is a tradition the company has before a performance, all the girls give Issac a little good luck kiss before the show since he is the only boy. I shot this the way I did because it was the natural pose they were in and I didn't want this picture to be posed at all. The setting is on the stage before the curtain opened and we were all warming up and wishing each other good luck before the show. I edited it the way I did because I wanted to draw attention to my ballet school's name on the back of my friends jacket. Overall, I like the way this picture came out.

Album Cover Project

For this project I really liked the idea of having the four squares each containing something different. I used 5 different images, the background, the 2pictures of myself, and the two pictures I used to blend with my face. I tried to go with a somewhat monochromatic look with the orange and yellows which I think came out nicely. I played with the opacity in all the boxes (especially the yellow ones). I like the way it came out because I felt it looked a little boring and bland. I used outer glow on the text to make it pop a little more. I also, of course, used double exposure on my portrait. Overall I feel like this project came out pretty well and I kinda want to make another one.

ATPI Fall Photo Contest 2018

So far this year I have learned to step out of my comfort zone a little bit with my photography skills. I have also learned a lot my time management skills and my ability to work under pressure. I tried to work more with colors and black and white stuff too. Overall, I can tell I have improved greatly this year so far.

Architecture: I like this picture because of the composition, like how clear and focused it is. I also like what I did with the color, it gives the church an older feel because it is in black and white but it makes the sky pop more.  Architecture: I love this picture because the filter I used rally made the stone pop. I love the angle I took this from because you can't see all of what's outside of the door.  Architecture: I like this picture because of the exposure. I like how you can still see that the string lights are on but the overall picture isn't dark at all. It also looks like I took it somewhere not in San Antonio which I think is cool too. Nature: I re…

Favorite Five From Our First Field Trip

This first 9 weeks have been full of exciting new challenges! I feel like I have gained a deeper understanding of perspective and composition, basically what makes a good photo a good photo. On this field trip, I really took it upon myself to shoot things in a different way, and as I was editing I really went for new things I wouldn't have done before. I look forward to seeing what the rest of this year has in store!   I really like this image because of the angle I shot it from, it looks like your entering a secret garden or something.
 I like what I did with this picture editing wise because it really enhances the old feel of the church.  I LOVE this picture because It looks like it wasn't even taken in San Antonio. It looks like I took it somewhere in Europe. I also really like the exposure and how you can still see that the lights are on. I like how I edited this picture so that only the flag in in color. I also like the angle I took it from. I like the angle I took this …

Face Art Blog

This project was really fun to do. It gave me the ability to unleash my creativity and do whatever I wanted. I wanted to step outside the box and do whatever I thought looked good. In the end, I think it came out pretty well.
