Up Close And Personal

In my Small Format Class we were given an assignment to photograph 36 strangers close up with in-between the focal lengths of 28mm to 35mm. We also had to gather their name, age, place of residence, and one interesting fact about them. There had to be 12 with ambient light, 12 outdoors with flash, and 12 indoors with flash. Here are my four favorites from each category.

Equipment used:
Canon 550D
Canon 17-135mm
Vivitar 285HV
Vivitar Softbox

Portrait Recreation

Last semester we were given an assignment to recreate a portrait or style of a famous portrait photographer. I chose to channel the style of Richard Avedon's portrait of Tilda Swinton. My model was the lovely Lauren Miller.

For my Intro to Digital class we were challenged to find all 26 letters of the alphabet in environmental letters and in typography. Then we had to make a layout on photoshop of all the letters. This was my final layout for the environmental letters.

Natural Lighting

In my product lighting class, we were given an assignment to light an object no smaller than a soda can and no bigger than a suitcase. The catch being that we could only use natural light. I chose the bottle of Axe Body Gel because of it's shape and textures. I used window light from my front door and an array of fill cards and flags to light the bottle.

Here is my final image.

Farming and Agriculture

In my Small Format class, weekly 3 was to shoot one Americana style image or an image that uses composition and light well that shows Farming or Agriculture. This was my image.

The Shape of The Road

For the second weekly in my small format class, we were given an assignment to take a photograph showing the shape of the road. I shot using an 18mm focal length to achieve some distortion in the road. This was my final image.
