Handicap sign reflected in a puddle. Taken outside of my church. I like taking pictures of puddles, I think they're cool. Especially when they have reflections in them. It's just more exciting that way.

what's wrong with the world

Versus nature. We're spreading, and they're lessening.

She's a Rainbow

Yeah, okay, there is no she. But it is a rainbow. Rainbow jelly at that. I had a lot of free time last week, so monday after school I took a walk to Ralphs and bought six flavors/colors of Jell-O. I started making this rainbow at three, and didn't add the final layer until 10:30 that night. Did you know Jell-O takes forever and a half to set? Well, all in all, it tasted good and it looked good! I couldn't help but take a picture.

Wasted entry, but I don't care. LAWL.

Minor White

Minor White. That's such a weird name. Is it like...fake name or something?

Snow on Garage Door, Rochester, New York

Describe: A door with a window, covered in snow. The snow is also stuck to the wood and the glass on the window.

Analyze: The photo is centered, with the window being in the middle. It's almost symmetrical. The snow has an up right slant, but that isn't something that can be adjusted. The image is black and white, with whites, grays and blacks. The gray almost feels a little overwhelming because the photo doesn't have a lot of color variety.

Interpret: GAWD I hate interpreting art. Because you never know what the artist is thinking, and sometimes they have nothing in mind.
But if I had to guess what the artist is saying...actually. I don't know. I have no idea. The image is almost too simple to assume anything. Maybe it's withstanding hardships, the door being a person, and the snow is life's attack.

Judge: I like the simplicity of the photo, the snow sticking to the wall and the window pleases me. Especially since there isn't snow here, I enjoy looking at it. However, if I were to change it, I'd probably kick up the contrast, to make it stand out more.

I've never liked critiquing work. Especially other peoples.

Still Doll

I don't remember when the photo was taken, or what light was used since the Hot Light stopped working. The model is Jacqui Behr, but you can't see her face...
Half of my film was ruined in the development process, which I wasn't a part of. It's very disappointing. And the other half of my shots just didn't turn out. My fault though. Over all, I only had two shots to work with, one of which just wasn't good enough to merit a spot on this CD cover. So instead, I incorporated digital photos I took myself.
As much as I HATE [with a passion] making CD covers, I'm pretty happy with how this looks. I had to change Artist/Songs a couple of times to decide which went best with the cover. Over all, it wasn't the -worst- thing I've done. The only problem besides not having enough pictures to work with is the fact that it took so long to get a chance to develop the film. But meh. It got done, and it looks okay. 8D

Lyrics Translation:

Hi Miss Alice
What kind of dreams
Do you see
With your eyes of glass?
Do they fascinate you?

My heart his torn
And bleeding
I mend it but
My memories
Pierce the opening

Hi Miss Alice
To whom
Are you throwing love to
With your fruit-like lips?
Does it make you sad?

The heat of my tongue
That let me speak
Has already cooled
And I can't sing
Songs of love

Still you do not answer

Here's the printed photo of Jacqui:

Portrait of an Angel of Darkness

A portrait of Vidia. White back drop and single light source [hot light]. Taken Monday, September 22.

The first project of the class, portraits. And we practically were rushed with only 6 shots per person, so I'm nowhere near proud or happy with this shot. While I approve of it, I wish we had more time and less pressure to get it done. Vidia was a fantastic model, she improvised the poses herself since I couldn't come up with anything. 
The actual print is maybe a little too light for my taste, especially on the left. Some help with the lighting might be needed if I wanted to reshoot.
Overall, the experience wasn't one I'd want to reminisce about. A shoot done on my own time or without people waiting behind me would be ideal. I think the main problem was the group thing, since all the waiting drained ideas and the like.
