Assignment that I am most proud of


The assignment that I am most proud of is my photo with quotes project. I worked very hard on this project and I believe each one of my photos reflect different aspects of my life. Out of the three photos with quotes that I made my favorite is the one with the seniors of the football team with the quote "when it's too tough for them, it's just right for us" - Bruce Smith. I believe that this quote and picture accurately reflect the mindset and attitude of the 2015 Yarmouth High School Football Team. This photo also means a lot to me because the seniors in this photo will always be my brothers and my leaders. I look up to each and everyone of them and I feel lucky to have played with them. This work also had a significant impact on my learning this year because I learned how to use photoshop which as I've said before I have always wanted to know how to do.

Most memorable experiences

One of the most memorable experiences that I had this year was doing the scavenger hunt. I think that the scavenger hunt was so much fun because it was relaxed and a fun assignment. I had so much fun going outside to take the photos that were needed. The photos were fun to take because they incorporated a lot of the things that we have learned this year. Another thing that was fun about the scavenger hunt was because we had a lot of time in class to finish the assignment we didn't have to do anything at home. The amount of time we had also made it really fun when we went outside because we were able to have some fun while doing the assignment. It was also really fun while we were presenting because it was completely stress free and everyone was giving each other a hard time. I believe that it is also very memorable because it was our last assignment of photo 1.


Another one of the most memorable projects of this year was the pinhole camera project. This project was really fun for a number of reasons. First, it was the first time I had used a pinhole camera. This was really fun because it involved experimenting with the shutter time. Second, it was really fun learning about everything in the dark room. The dark room was really interesting, and it was fun learning everything from creating a negative to creating a positive. Third, the excitement and pace of the project was really fun. Running in and out of the dark room and experimenting with different photographs was very fun. Lastly, it was the last project that Igor was here for. This project was not only the last project he was here for but also the last time I got to work with Igor. It was awesome having Igor here in Yarmouth this past year, and tis project was the culmination of the entire time that Igor was here from playing basketball right up to this project.
 

Reflecting on my goals for this semester

I believe that I achieved my goals and more this semester! I have at least tripled my knowledge about photography, and I have learned techniques and skills that I never knew. I feel as though I I have learned a lot more about the art of photography and about all the different aspects of it. I am so happy that I got to learn about the dark room and how to develop photos into negatives. I also got to learn how to make a negative into a positive. Learning in the dark room I was able to achieve my goals and have a lot of fun while achieving them. I also learned how to use photoshop which is awesome because it was not only on of my goals but something that I have always wanted to know how to use.

Pinhole Photography


    1. To understand and demonstrate pinhole photography and how it works;
    2. To become familiar with darkroom processes and procedures.




I learned many different things during this unit, and they were all very interesting. I learned different techniques of pinhole photography, and I learned more about photography in general during the unit. One aspect of pinhole photography that I learned was the exposure time. I learned that to create an acceptable negative the shortest time we had the shutter open was 20 seconds. However, most of the time the shutter was open close to a minute. Another aspect I learned about was how to develope a negative. This was very interesting because it involved being in the dark room. I learned that there are specific times that the photo paper must be in the developer, stopper, fixer, and wash bath. A third thing that I learned was how to change a negative into a positive. This was very fun and I learned all of the steps to creating a positive.


One of the most exciting parts of this project was simply taking the photos. This was very fun because I had a great group, and it was fun to be running in and out of the dark and finding out if we had taken a good photo or not. Another fun part of the project was the class time we had to change the negatives into positives. This was exciting because it is something that I had never done before and it was awesome to see the change from negative to positive. Lastly, a very exciting part of the process was developing the blank photo paper into a negative. This was very fun because it was the only part of the project that I had no clue about. I understood the process of taking the photos and turning the negatives into positives, but I knew nothing about creating the negatives so it was very exciting and fun to learn.

Forced Perspective Photography

Purpose:


  • To continue to develop creative problem-solving skills by creating forced perspective photographs in a unique original way;
  • To practice altering perspective and looking at subjects in a unique way;

  • To further develop your Photoshop knowledge and skills;




The most unique and successful photo that I have is the one where I’m being chased by a T-Rex. This is my best photo, because I think that I combined the photos really well. I believe that my photoshop skills have gotten a lot better. I also think that the photos go well with each other in the way that the foot of the T-Rex goes into the sand and my right foot appears to go into the sand. Lastly, I think it is the best because it is the most creative photo I made.

I still don’t know all of the commands which is a bit frustrating. Making the red be just on what I want to copy and paste is also a bit frustrating. I asked for help with what I didn’t understand and I just tried to focus on being as accurate as I could be. I think that I’ll try to find a background first and take a photo for the background. I think that I will also take more photos instead of just finding old photos.

Shadow


one simple thing
one steel form
one small utensil 
that is overlooked everyday
it makes eating so much neater
it makes gulping down food so much faster
it makes the eating experience improve
imagine eating a steak with only a knife available
imagine the mess if you attempted to eat a salad with only your hands 

a world without forks would be anarchy
