Alexa took this photograph for her growth series.


Alli took this photograph.
Final Series - ”The feelings and expressions of a child in life”. This photo represents shyness and curiosity. She is hold the feather over her face to show that she is hiding and that you can only see a part of her. Her eyes form a gaze which creates a sense of curiosity. This ties in with gowth of a child when they are curious about soemthing, but are too shy to confront it.
In Photoshop, I removed lines from beneath her eyes, increased the contrast, and turned the photo black and white.


This is the first of four ‘growth’ photos that I took. I took this photo by building the wall in the background. Then I spent about an hour digging through my box of Legos to find as-much money as I could possibly find. Finally I got the Lego figure and set him up with a $100 Lego dolor in his hand and put some more near him, then put the camera on the table and took the picture. I took  this photo because I wanted to portray economic growth, because I felt it was a area that I could successfully make and portray. I did this by adding more money to each photo. This photo is important because it is the start of the lego mans economic growth. I think I was successful at the lighting in the shot. My inspiration for taking these photos was that I like Legos so I wanted to use Legos in this final to portray the increase in a persons wealth.

This growth series is supposed to represent different characteristics about what makes a strong person in life. Each image represents something different. For this first image I color balanced it and then put an overlay filter on it and created a mask so I could highlight different things in the image. This first photo is supposed to represent blossoming. These flowers are what first appear and then the orange berries (found in the back of the image) come next in life. Blossoming is a form of growing and things changing. No one is the exact same person they were when they were younger. Everyone experiences different things and changes as they move thoughout life.

Alexa took this photograph.

Somewhat cliche.

This photo shows more sadness. I’m so sick of Wisconsin winter, I hate snow. Hopefully I got the point across that my facial expression is sorrowful and sad for winter. I hate being cold, overall winter all together. There really is no sign of ‘warmth’ in this picture, so hopefully I got my point across.


Andrea took this photograh.
his picture represents low temperature.


Cold Portrait - This portrait is of my sister Kendra outside in the snow. I used cold in a way of being uncomfortable and chilled. I wanted to capture the snow on her dark jacket because snow is cold. It also gave it a neat effect that tied the whole photo together as one. Her dark makeup also makes her eyes pop. I had the camera setting turned to portrait and had the flash off because there was plenty of natural light. In photo shop I added a warming filter, sharpened it, and uped the contrast to give it a more defined color change. Alli took this photo.

This is the second of two slow shutter speed photos that I took. I used the slow shudder speed mode on my camera, and again put it on a shelf and put a timer on it, then used a toy star wars light-saber to make a random shape. I took this photo because we were instructed to take two slow shutter speed photos, and I had tried it before and it didn’t work so I felt I needed to redeem myself, so I tried again with a better understanding of my camera. The composition for this photo was light so I made sure the only thing in the photo was the light.


Hunter took this photograph.
Night Photo 2
Auto Mode. 200 ISO


Alli took this photograph.

Portrait- Like the last portrait of Kendra I had my camera setting on portrait and had the flash off. I opened a curtain on the other side of the room to get more light on her face and help accomplish the triangle underneath her left eye. I had her smile and smirk in order to capture a sense of knowing and beauty. I turned the photo black and white to enhance the light and shadows from the window to her face.
