An Entire Class in ONE Post.

This is a photo-dump (hmm, that sounds so low-class. How about Photo arrangement?) of everything I did for Photography. Minus the first two assignments because those were done with a real-live film camera and their scanned-in computer quality makes me twitch a little.




Right then, this is:
PORTRAIT ASSIGNMENT
Thanks to my models: Stacey Bethers <3 onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://bp1.blogger.com/_EZ23gZn1oIc/SA1Mk3s7EAI/AAAAAAAAATo/GMIU2HNUNA0/s1600-h/stacey.jpg">














NATURE ASSIGNMENT
Not exactly sure what the point of that assignment was. Apparently, I thought the assignment was to utilize sun flares in as many ways as possible. Or maybe that was just my way of bleaching out my shoddy photography skillz.













TAKE THREE PICTURES OF A PENCIL ASSIGNMENT
uh... He was pushing us to be creative? I guess it worked. An hour before they were due, I was exploding with ideas for weird ways to take pictures of pencils. Only about 10% of those ideas were logical/possible though.
Oh! And no joke! Jaren told me this first picture was "so good it looks fake." I think it was a compliment, but I'm still deciding.








The end!

Bad Luck

 This morning in Ryan's class when my USB flipped out and corrupted right before I needed to present my March project! 


Obviously, I just lost all my USB information but the thing that miffed me the most was that I've spent nearly a week of sleepless nights trying to get some good revisions in before our actual presentation. I finally got some good ones last night at approximately 3:00 in the am and saved them immediately to ensure their safety. Little did I know, my USB was plotting their demise behind the scenes only unveiling its nefarious plot a second before their debut!


How annoying.


Still annoyed about that, actually.


I found all the first drafts on my home computer, though. Thank goodness.

About the paintings themselves: I tried to employ a little impressionism into the painting style. Wasn't fully successful, but it's coming! I love painting in Corel, too. So hopefully when I do the revisions (again) they'll be...better.

this was how I felt today when I found out I could go the entire day without a third layer. :)
