This photoshoot was a little tricky but very fun at the same time. Behind the scenes there was a lot going on with creating a backdrop that wouldn't be very distracting to, having the light coming from both sides of the french toast but not too much light that will make it too bright, and having some flowers in the back to kinda make it have a bit of a rustic feel without it taking focus away from the food. With the french toast being stacked it gives it a little more dimension to the image since they were the main focus of the image. The butter, small pool of syrup on the side and the falling powder sugar add to the feel of a full breakfast.

Taking and editing images has always been something I enjoy doing and it is truly one of my passions. On the field trips we had I tried to take as much pictures as I could so that I could have a broader image selection. I was prepared and had many different layouts though out for this contest and I achieved most of them. This year I have learned something essential. Through out this process I experienced some events that honestly had me on the edge of several brake downs. Realizing that photography is a self directed business meaning that things will get stressful. You may get help but you can't always rely on it. Although there may have been some tough times, I feel proud of myself and how my images turned out.

This school year I honestly accomplished a lot of things. My editing skills got a whole lot better. My photography skills improved to where my images didn't need much editing once I imported them into Lightroom which is something I am really proud of. I finally mastered well improved on my macro skills. In fact I got an Honorable Mention in the Greenspace Nature contest for my macro image.
In photography everything is mainly about taking your chances and experimenting. If you don't know how to do something you will figure it out by just messing with your settings. But the most important thing that you need to be able to do is be patient and plan things out.
5 Best Images
|This image thought me how important it is to make sure you know how to use your shutter speed because thats what made this image so strong.|
|The lighting in this picture was a little difficult to get but I love how beautiful it turned out to look.|
|This image is just so peaceful and she is the focus of the image.|
|The fact that I had the ability to capture this image touches my heart. It showcases honor and respect for all the fallen veterans. The dominant color of the image makes it stronger.|
|This Macro image is by far the best picture I've ever taken. Being able to get the dark shadows in the back was pretty difficult, but eveything takes practice with photography.|

This field trip was a really good learning experience for not just me but for everyone. Having the ability to work around all the lighting issues and fixing the camera settings a lot was something to get use to. Its really important for the photographer to have the ability to pose the models and to get the models to act natural and be theirselves. I always try to get the models to relax and be comfortable.

For the single light portrait we were only allowed to use ONE light obviously. This projects was a little challenging to be completely honest. I did some research oh how to capture and image of fire. I had to do some trial runs (55 to be exact) but I finally got he correct settings. At first I didn't like the images but after I put them in Lightroom I instantly fell in Love with it.
