Senior Session

I chose this image because I think it frames the subject well. The model looks comfortable and it looking straight into the camera, allowing it to focus. I also like how the lighting hits her perfectly to highlight her face and skin.

I chose this image because it looks really formal with his gown and cap. I like that the graduation year is visible, that his cap lines up with the background , and that the focus is on his face which is facing the camera directly.

I chose this image because it's a different position than the other guys did. I also like how he is framed and that the background isn't too busy to take focus off of him.

I chose this image because the model looks like she blends into the background. I also like that she is facing the camera, but also the flowers in the foreground add a pop of color to the whole image.

I chose this image because there is a view in the background, but the subject is the main focus. I like that the model is centered and looks comfortable.

I chose this image because it is a simple pose, but the background isn't busy so the model really stands out. I like that the model is wearing something that isn't too busy and works with the background.

I chose this image because it can sometimes be challenging to work with props properly. I like how the image frames up the model and the prop, which draws your eyes to her face.

Laying poses can sometimes be hard, especially if you're in a city where people are always in the background. That's why I chose this image, because of the non-buy background, you're able to focus on the model. I also like how she is gently resting her head on her face.

His pose is very simple, but the way he is centered draws your eyes to him and not the background. I like that I took away the color because it increases the focus on him.

Ideas can go a long way and in this case, adding text to her fingers tells the whole story. I like that the focus is on her fingers but also that her face isn't too out of focus and of course has a pretty smile.

Top Ten Nature


1. Leaf Focus-In this photo the leaves closet to the camera are in focus and are centered in order for the rest of the plant to act as the background.


2.Tree Hole-For this image the background was the focus and provided a nice change of color.


3. Spot-The subject in this image has all the focus and color despite being small and in the center.


4. Stand up- The branch in this image draws your eyes upward and is in focus.


5.Faded- This image is close to a leaf which has light coming through it to highlight its veins.


6.Bark- This image contains a focused portion of a chopped tree branched that has lots of texture.


7.Mismatch- This image has multiple colors of green that are in focus and work together.


8. Center of attention-There may be a bush, but the red leaves are where the attention is.


9. Fuchsia-The ficus and the crop of this image makes the colors of these flowers really pop.


10.Sprout- Spring is all about new beginnings, this image fits that with the focus of the sprout.

I chose my dad as my subject because he gives me the best advice which helps me through anything. I took the picture from an angle to capture some of the background but also to have his face positioned in a way to make you look at the image in whole. I made the image black and white to have the focus back on him and not the busy background.

Movie poster


For this movie poster, I used double exposure through my face to blend the two backgrounds. The three items I used were a medal, spikes, and my running watch. I used mixing brushes to smooth their edges, as I also did on myself.The text has a gold effect, which required me to make a new gradient with a glow, and uses bevel and emboss as well. I changed the opacity on myself, so you can see the second background. I changed the opacity on the medal, so it fades into the track and on the watch and spikes, to give the same effect.Using double exposure with opacity changes on everything, makes you look closer to find more details.

Contest Images

 At the beginning of the year, I have learned so much already about both photography and myself.I have learned how creative a mind I have and how to put it to good use in coming up with ideas, others might not think of. Deciding which images t use for this year's contest was harder than last year, because I had clearer images this year.I didn't have to edit to much thanks to the good lighting, but I improved some of them so they have more color and interest.

 Nature: the exposure of the sun through the leaves.

Still Life: The lighting and focus on the ice.

Still Life: The focus and colors on the flowers.

Still Life: The bokeh effect in the background draws attention from the apple.

Advertising: The focus on the product is good and is appealing to the eyes due to the effect of the flowers.

Open: The shutter speed plays a huge role in capturing the water hitting the apple at the perfect moment.The subject is in focus and the background isn't busy.

Time Exposure: Again the shutter speed contributed in making the cool rainbow effect.The best part is the light didn't bunch up making it too bright.

Time Exposure:The light compliments the model's pose.

Theme: The glitch effect compliments the message of the image of being hard to read.

Nature: The exposure on the plants and water is just enough to be able to focus on the reflection given.

Downtown images

 For these five downtown images, I liked the improvement I saw from last year in the case of focus. I was happy to get up close to the animals because I wasn't able to get close enough for a clear shot. I was able to put a new perspective on the city life in San Antonio.

Face Art Final

For this year's final project, I wanted to go above and beyond. For that reason I put a lot of work and thought into this photo, which was bare to start off but I made it even better and I'm proud of it.
