Final exam portfolio

Tonight was my last night of class.  Here's the photos I submitted for my portfolio.  I think I bombed the written half of the final exam :(

This weeks assignment

Another open assigment.  I love the one with the out of focus yarn ball in the forground.  My instructor could not decide if she liked it, but it thought it was pretty groovy.  It was not exactly  what I was going for, but I really love it.  And pics from B&C's wedding.

This week was vegetables.  I really like the shots of the mushrooms.. I could have just turned in shots of mushrooms and been happy, but decided to add a little more variety w/ the tomatoes and onion.  I like the onion quite a bit too.  It also looked really cool in black and white.

Another delayed post... this is last weeks assignment.  I was so uninspired for this one.  Got my cute dog, my dad's dead deer that has hung on the wall since I was a yout! (intentional typo... see My Cousin Vinnie)  And I made a huge stretch and used... hot dogs... hey, they sorta used to be an animal.

Open assignment

I'm a little late posting this.. this assignment was from 2 weeks ago.  My lovely friend Jackie went to the botanical garden w/ me and some of these photos are from there.  I also took some photos of the GCFD for their fundraising calendar and used a few of those for my assignment too.  And yes, that's my super cute kid #2 :)

Assignment 5, Motion

This weeks assignment was to capture motion and to freeze motion.  My photos are not the best, but the best I had to work with.  I think this is mostly due to being a bored with given assignments and also lack of vision on my part.

Assignment 4, Depth of field

This weeks assignment was a bit of a challenge for me, mostly because I have been sick and waited till the last minute to do it.  2 of the photos should have a short depth of field and 2 should have a longer depth of field... I think on a few of mine there is a fine line as to which way they go.

Assignment 3, Closer

Last weeks assignment was to get in closer to your subject and get rid of the unnecessary clutter.
All of these were taken at the Old Courthouse in downtown St. Louis.

Assignment 2 - Curves

This week's assignment is curves. All of the photos except for P w/ his saxaphone are at the apple farm. I actually just took that one for fun... told him to give me a cheezy pose like he was playing and he pulled it off like a pro. They've all been slightly photoshopped. We only needed 4 photos but I couldn't choose between them all so I turned in all 5.

Assignment 1 - Lines

Assignment #1 is lines.  I have a bench, garter stitch section of my FLS sweater, power lines and a shutter.  The 5th photo I did not turn in (we only needed 4) but I really like the image... it's of a wooden privacy fence.
