This image is connected to my concentration (Trauma) on the basis of self harm. I purposely didn't include a face because when people hurt themselves they see themselves as nobody, no face, no persona, just a body. I used the crop to zoom on exactly what I wanted people to see, as well as used the lighting to my advantage. Happy lighting is not the vibe for my image, darkened edges, with highlighted skin, and clear metal. My elements of art are lighting, shape, and color  (or specifically lack there of). They mix together to create a clear messaged image. 
(Dating Abuse) With this image a majority of the emotion comes from position and expression, overall simple image made by the use of emotional barriers. Slightly makeup and majority expression created a look of plea and despair, with the hand of a loved one hurting her. My elements of art are space, value, and form slightly. Cropping to get a majority of the frame filled with her face, having her emotion become more apparent an…

Hey friends, welcome back to my blog, I hope you enjoy your time here.  My central theme I am working with is Trauma, in all forms. I began with more blatant forms of a drama: being attacked, being in an abusive relationship, and feeling as though you were born in the wrong body. My connection to this topic is viewing the way our society and people around me handle how the world is changing. I started my first three images on the same type of background but my whole portfolio won't be on the same background, I may even redo an image because I find a better way to convey my thoughts on the subject. I use models, aiming to have a hard hitting yet simple to understand picture, as well as up to interpretation (as I feel art should be), to get my story across. My lighting has so much to do with my portfolio, when you think of traumatizing situations you wouldn't see light, cheery lighting. No. Gritty, saddening, rough lighting that can highlight or hide what people want you to see…

Now You See Me, Now You Don't

This project, when I figured out what I wanted to do, was actually quite satisfying to finish. For my contrast, I did white earbuds on a pristine black background, slightly cliche but going with the contrast of black and white. For negative, I went with more of the concept rather than the literally. I had two people hugging but the guy is fading away, his imprint is the negative space in the picture, the emptiness of the image. For dichotomy, I did the same person but wildly different views of who they are, a victim, and a princess. Types of people you never would have thought would go together but together nonetheless. I had fun bringing my ideas to life, honestly, thinking that if I could pull it off it would look super cool. Thanks for coming to my T.E.D Talk.



Yummy Yummy in my Tummy

MY LORD, THIS WAS CHALLENGING, food is not my strong suit. The set up took me so long to figure out and I still think about ways I could have kept changing it. But I did like this picture the best and enjoyed setting up the warm lighting that can be associated with the warm breakfast feeling, that bright and early sunlight lighting. My plain backdrop brings your focus to the food, as well as accents the colors of the fruit. My props are minimal because I felt it was more effective, my cup of milk and plate showing off what people eat in the morning and how they get what they need and bring your eye to the main point.My focal point is the syrup drizzle, which may have been a bold (wrong?) decision but I like it. My food style may seem haphazard but I promise it took me so long to decide where to put my fruits and if I should pile or drizzle the syrup, overall I love where the fruits are as well as the angles they are laying. Sure I could gave been more creative but I am happy with my …

Semester Final

Image
This was my semester final, and while it was stressful I had a lot of fun.  For action I wanted to do stop-action, making it clear by having her hair all in the air in focus because you know she was moving to make it happen. I added a blue gel to the light because I'm me and I don't like boring pictures so I wanted to add a little spice. Plus why not, just makes it look pretty cool in my opinion. For unity, I STRUGGLED with the concept because ???? Hard. But I saw these spoons and chopsticks and naturally I thought hey, these go together, isn't that what unity essentially is. So I positioned them in the light box and I didn't want to capture the whole thing. I wanted a piece so I cropped it tight, it just seems to add to the picture. I love the reds and how each thing has a beautiful design, flowing together all pretty like. For color, my personal favorite, because I am dramatic and love all things messy. Blacklight is super fun to do with color because it literally m…

Circle It was actually harder to get this picture right than I thought. Its a lightbulb ya know so it literally emits light, I had to keep playing with my iso, aperture, and shutter to make it look somewhat decent rather than a burning ball of hot. I wanted to take it because the red lines on the inside that give off light looked really pretty and I thought, which I was right, that it would add a glowing look. With the red shining off the club's glass it made a simple circle look really interesting and it being a red light makes it something not a lot of people have seen.   Line I PUT THS PUZZLE TOGETHER JUST FOR THIS PICTURE SO PLEASE APPRECIATE MY EFFORT AND PATIENCE! I had the idea of something that was lined, then I thought of puzzles and how the lines go everywhere but always make an image. I put the puzzle together and it did take me a  minute to get my setting right since I had just taken a lightbulb picture, but I got some natural light on it and wanted to make sure the li…
