Picture 1 belongs to a classmate of mine. Her series has really grown. she started with flat hands full framed hands. but as this quarter has gone on, shes moved on the filling the background with black. then she discovered that instead of completely flat hands she can get the people to curve their hands and get more lines and shadows. this picture i think has really shown how far she has come with the curves of the hands creating shadows and creating thicker lines and its a more dramatic photograph. this picture also tells somewhat of a story too.
These pictures belong to a classmate of mine. When he showed his pictures this time around he had some showing the people and some not showing the people. the question was what do we like better? honestly i have had a hard time deciding, but i think i like showing the people. as creepy as it is that they look like ghosts, i think it makes for a better picture. the light that they have are their cell phones and it definitely adds to the photo. i think by time he is done with these, its going to be a great series! they show mystery and fun and with every photo you relate it to something else. the second photo for instant makes me think of the fair. i really enjoy his photos!
The first 2 photos are photos of a classmates the second photo is a much better composition than the first. and the colors and water droplets are more exciting in the second photo. All the lines on the flowers keep my eyes moving throughout the photo and the blue and white in the background isn’t overpowering the flower. its a perfect mix.
The 3rd photo is another classmates and i picked this photo because the lighting is beautiful. the light on the hands contrasted with the black background is nice and the way you can see the little hairs on the person’s hands. also all the marks on the hands really come out.
1) this first photo belongs to a classmate, he has been experimenting with macro photography. here he has some kind of bug. i love the detail he was able to get! the bug itself is so sharp and you can see the tiny hairs and the different colors in the wings! another thing i really liked was the depth of field. that way I’m more concentrated on the bug, it draws me to him better.
2) these next 2 photos are another classmates and she did a project where she turned her pictures from color to black and white to see what it looked like. i picked these ones particularly because as we switched the pictures back and forth to look at the difference one thing popped out to me. the lines in the flower in the top left corner became darker and and really popped out in black and white. the value range in both pictures were very nice also, like at the top where the purples and grays go from dark to light, and the contrast at the bottom is very nice where there is really dark under the petal and really light in the background
1) this first photo is by one of my classmates and she is doing flowing water. Her past photo shoot she added different colored backgrounds to give the water different colors. She was very successful! i chose this particular photo because it reminded a lot of us of yin and yang. She had some photos that were just one color but the ones where she had them mixed were much better!
2) the second photo was taken by a different classmate of mine. she is trying macro pictures. this one to me is successful because you can see the pink on parts sticking out of the flower bud. in another one she took you could not. and this one is clearer than others. i also like all the water drops you can see on it.
