This is an example of the work I have been doing, which is capturing people in public spaces. It is partially street photography and part documenting the contemporary-to-be-history.
So who knows what this photo means?
I would like to do documentaries about people and tell their story. This first picture isn't mine, but it gives you an idea of what i would like to do eventually. For my portfolio I am going to post pictures of people that have meaning.
For my portfolio I have a few different ideas. First off I do enjoy portrait photographs and incorporating nature with the portraits if it fits the individual's personality. I also like to photograph elements of subjects one wouldn't normally focus their attention on. And finally I just love to shoot nature photographs and different sunsets/sunrises when I get the chance.
I love to take photos of just about anything outdoors, but for my portfolio I want to push outside of what I know and shoot pictures of people, motion and I'd really love to have a series of photos that narrate a story.
This first picture is one of mine that I shot outside on my Grandpa's farm. Here's my outdoorsy love of photography coming through.
This photo was one of my very first tries in Photo 1 and I'd love to see if I could do more. It makes me feel like the subject, Chelsey, is looking into your soul. Maybe that's just me:)
This photo is kind of bad, but one thing I think could be fun is playing around with light and trying to do interesting things with it.
I didn't take this photo, but I would like to get into doing close-ups on tech. I don't see myself using photos much in my future career, but this is one situation that could possibly come up and I would like to explore it.
I enjoy doing portrait/event photography, so I'm thinking that is what I'll be doing for my portfolio. I posted a few of my favorite images below. I want to try more studio portraits this semester since the majority of the portraits I do are taken outside.
The plan for my portfolio is to take pictures of still lives (is the plural for a still life still "lives"?) in their natural habitat, that is, not taken in a studio necessarily. Photography has never been a hobby for me, and I've only taken photos in Photo I class, so all I have right now are black and whites.
I hope to shoot things like this, but finally get the chance to work in color!!
This is a photo that I took for an advertisement. I tried to capture the essence of fall and create a scene that would compliment the boots. I hope to produce photos that capture the mood and feeling that I want to create.
I tried something out of my comfort zone and took a different approach for this photo. I want to try to keep a similar mindset by experimenting with style and content to try and create something unexpected.
I have thirst for attending events like concerts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournaments, etc. so I would like to include a little bit of event photography in my portfolio like the picture below - that I did not take - of August Burns Red.
Also, on the practical implication side of things, I do product reviews for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu apparel, gear, etc. on my blog. I would love to build out my studio work because it's a handy skill to have to diversify revenue stream in everyday life. Below is an example of a female Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Kimono image that I would love to be able to reproduce.
Hey It's Mariah! The two images below will somewhat influence my portfolio I believe. I've recently found out that I love taking pictures of animals (hard as it may be). While I don't have the opportunity to photograph many wildlife animals, I do get to photograph my lion kitty, Rengar.
This picture is more about a feeling than the actual photography. I love fall photos and hope to incorporate some things like this into my final portfolio. Nature is another thing that I love to photograph and I feel that there are a lot of subjects to choose from.
These two pictures represent the stark difference between the
photography that I do as a hobby, and the photography I would likely
need to do in advertising. Somehow blending the nature/landscape
photography with advertising photography is what I would like to do with
Taken at Lakeside Park in Fond du Lac.This is the photography I do most of the time.
This is where I would like my nature photography to end up like.
This first picture is of my 6 yr. old son Ivan (pronounced Eevonne). He returned with his Mom and Brother this past May to live permanently in Oshkosh and it is a joy to be re-united with him. Photographs of people living in their element will be predominant in my portfolio pieces.
This second picture is of a trail within the grounds of Holy Hill. This represents another aspect of my portfolio, the wonders of nature and our environments.
