Photography Final Project

For our final project we were given free roam on anything that we wanted to do. we looked through many different style of photos to give us some sort of idea on what we might want to do. Within the different types we came across a woman who would do different movie scenes, acting them out herself. I though how many people have felt I’m many different people with my different styles. So I decided to do my different personas. I of course had help taking pictures of myself as I would dress in different clothes that would physically show my different selves. I had a great many of them: punk, prep, working woman, hippie, geek, nerd and a girl from the streets of a city in Japan. Each picture tried to show my many different sides. We were to upload six images and then print one. I have all of them here but for the Japanese girl. that on was made into a print.

Photography Observation and Interaction

For this project we were to go to an environment and either observe it or interact with it and take pictures of what we have done. With this project I went out and took photo’s at two different locations. One spot was the Imagination Station and the park that is located beside it. The pictures that I took here were mostly observation pictures. The second location was a run down building in the downtown area. This building had so many interesting things that I had to take pictures of it, most of which were interaction.

Photography History of Things

Within this project  we were told to find items that were dear to us and take photographs of them. They are to be placed in places that are interesting visual and mentally. My Items were four little butterflies and flower pins and a pearl necklace. The necklace was my mothers grandmothers necklace. She was a very large woman with a great love for expensive jewelry. They were passed to my grandmother then to my mother and one day to me. They are very beautiful and elegant. The pins were my fathers grandmothers pins. She wore them on her wedding day along the side of her dress. Her nick name was butterfly so it was her wedding gift from her father.

Photography 24 Hour

Within this project we were told to document 24 hours of our lives with a camera. Take pictures of the things around us as well as the things we do. Here are just a few photos that I took with a bit of writing that I wrote when I took the pictures.
