Contrast Photography

Contrast Photography


For this image, an idea had popped into my head, and I just felt like doing it. The negative would be the picture in the middle which is inverted. Originally my photo had much more in it than this, and all of the stuff on it was too much, and didn't match well at all. I think that the image is better now, but it still feels like it might be a little much. 


This image was something I wanted to try. The contrast would be the gold and silver. I wanted to try and do something interesting with the mirror to make a really cool contrast image, and I feel that it did work. However, the masking on the reflection isn't as could as it could have been.

Breadth Portfolio

Breadth Portfolio 

These are some of the photos I have taken in the past year.  I would have to say that since I have started photography, I've improved a good bit. Some of these photos were inspired by stories, and the rest are photos that I made from observation or photoshop.

7Abender Midterm Photo Challenge


With glow, I wasn't sure exactly what I was going to do, but when I saw the way the butterfly reacted with the light bar, I decided to try something out. I think this image could have been really cool, if I was able to capture more of a color change in the butterfly. 


When he was using the rubix cube, I thought it would be interesting to take some photos, and I really like the way this came out. One thing I personally would have changed, is that I wish that the foreground was in focus instead. 


When I took this photo, I thought t would be a cool idea to try. i had seen the rubix cube and wanted to try something with it. I think that it is really cool with the false reflection.

Creative Portrait

I originally wanted to try to do something deeper with this photo, but instead I thought, "Since it's a portrait about me, why don't I just take a picture of something I do/like to do." And out came this image.

7-ABender Photo challenge

Photo Challenge 


This picture is supposed to represent a glass half empty. It fits the half category, and symbolizes a little story about Santa drinking the milk, and eating the cookies. This image could have had a much better composite, if I had used a plate with cookies instead of a box. Had I done that, I could have also used a better angle. 


This picture is a way of combining the light-stick with the glass ball. The exposure is pretty good, and it certainly includes a circle. The composition is a bit plain, but it could have been worse.


This image isn't at all the best composition wise, but with the focus on words, it's almost powerful. 
The lighting works, and the exposure is good.


This photo is okay. It is symmetrical, but also different. It also could have been cropped better. In the end, it isn't too bad of an image.

7Abender - Photoshop Challenge

Photoshop Challenge

Cartoon Effect

This one was pretty fun to do, and I like the outcome. I didn't have any difficulties doing the tutorial, and it was pretty easy. 

Mosaic Effect 

This one was interesting to do, and pretty simple. I did run into a few difficulties with this one. For one, the tutorial wanted me to resize the original image, but if I did that, then the Mosaic would have looked terrible, you wouldn't be able to tell what the image was. But since the image size was normal the mosaic is not as good as it could have been. 

Dispersion Effect
This was my favorite image to make, I really like the effect. This photo did come out pretty well, but after making it, I did see some things that could have been done better. For one, the dispersion effect should have taken more of his face, rather than just the shoulder, and his ear. Also, the background could have been better, which would have made the content aware fill much better.

7 ATPI Images

The past assignments, including this one, have taught me a good few things, and helped me reinforce things I already knew. Being prepared was great on the field trips we went on because I was was able to change lenses for the situation, and never run out of space on my SD card. Also, something I would love to do for any future field trip is to see the location first so I can plan the kind of shots that I want to take. 

Architecture : The strength of this photo is the way the lines are angled at.  

Environmental Portrait : The strength in this photo is the blur combined with the smoke giving the photo layers. 

Environmental Portrait : The strength in this photo is the lines coming from the middle, and then coming down. 

Environmental Portrait : The strength in this photo is the way the blur is set. Focusing on one part of his face. 

Landscape : The strength the almost symmetry. With the trees on both sides, and the street being almost exactly in the middle. 

Student-Life : I think that the strength in this image is the focus on the bubble, combined with the glare coming from the sun. 

Open : The strength in this image is the way the lighting is done. With it being almost pitch dark and the light from the monitors.

"The strength here is the color, and refraction in the prism."


"The strength here is the position of the car that kinda sets the image."


"The strength here is how well the ball in the middle refracts the light."


"The strength here is how well the line flows, as well as how interesting the prism looks."


"The strength here is the cube."
