My idea for this assignment was take high contrast back and white photos. I asked Destiny to model for me because I think photos with people tell a more intricate story. I like how these photos came out with the black and white. I need to improve on making a more balanced black and white, and not making contrast too strong.
A: 20 I turned in 6 b&w photos

C: 18 most of the photos have a compositional design
CC: 20 each photo came out well in b&w
I am walking out on Friday for the march for climate change so I turned this in early
For this portrait assignment I wanted to use mirrors and shutter speed. I don’t like taking photos of myself so these photos were ways to not necessarily show my face but still be considered a portrait. The mirror photo can also be considered as a statement about looks over personality or materialism in society. Peoples looks are valued over their personality in many different scenarios in todays society. I chose to do light writing because it is one of my favorite photo techniques, though I wish the came out less blurry.
I like the confusion in this photograph, because you have to look at it for awhile before fully understanding whats going on. I also like the ‘male gaze’ concept in this self portrait, and how it is based on a painting. I like Cindy Sherman’s self portrait too.
My name is Anna Carr, I am a sophomore. I enjoy taking photos of people and nature, and using different lightings and shutter speeds to create different effects. I like images with pops of color and interesting shadows.
My idea for this assignment was to recreate Scream and a Beatles album, but I decided to do Ladybird instead. I think I edited them well but the angles probably could’ve been a little different to make them spot on.
My original idea for this assignment was city vs. rural, but my photos ended up fitting into the theme of nature. All my photos have different types of nature in them. I think I did a good job framing each image in an interesting way, but I wish there was more color in some of them.
A: 20 all my photos fit my theme
Q: 18 edited to the best of my ability
C: 20 different uses of framing and compositional guidelines
