Favorite Set

These are just a select few of my favorite pictures so far for this semester. I expect for it to expand more and more over time. I chose these ones simply because they describe my life the best out of all of the others.


I chose to use a Potato as my random object sitting around my house. I changed it into… I bet you can already guess by looking at my page. Yep a basketball! Haha. I also made it into a little Goku Character off of Dragon Ball Z.. Well I tried. apophenia_21760178362_o


Photo Blitz

I chose to do my photo blitz in my mothers basement while I was home visiting. I chose to do it because their is so many random things going on throughout the house because of the grand kids and all of the family that comes in and out. It was weird at first because I was rushing around trying to make sure I got at least 5 pictures in the 20 minutes. But once I slowed down and started to just think of ideas they all came pretty easy to me. The photos that were the hardest were the converging lines picture and the metaphor photo, I couldn’t think of ANYTHING for those. After looking at the pool of photos I liked the ones of the Xbox and controller by “rmstanford 23”, the picture of the pencils by “adamlostonpatrol” , and the picture of the peach by “adoesneuropsych” just because they all were so simple but they were taken well enough to look like more than they were.

How To Be A Better Photographer









In this photo that I took, I used many of the key points mentioned. It is a simple picture but also has a lot in it, you can look far out into the distance or just look down at the beach, or just take it all in. Instead of taking a lot of different pictures, I slowed up and just took one photo, Which turned out much better than expected. I changed the lighting in it by focusing more on the sandy beach which brought out the colors in the whole photo. I would say that the 3 Key Points that I used were the “Get Pickier”, “Better Contrast Makes Better Stories” and the “Look to the light” but I also took a few more to make the picture even better. All of my resources came from the  “TEN: Ten Ways to Improve Your Craft. None of Them Involve Buying Gear” by David duChemin.



Bucket List



  1. First on my Bucket list is to marry my high school sweetheart of 4 years. A very big step in life, but I couldn’t see making it with anyone else.

2. My number two is to take a vacation to Atlantis in the Bahamas. This place is CRAZY! It has got to be one of the coolest vacation spots.

3. Might seem weird to some but my number 3 is to do a between the legs dunk. I can never get it, but before I die I will master it! HUGE accomplishment.

4. Last but certainly not least is to get tickets to an NBA All-Star game, seeing them on TV every year is so exciting I can’t imagine how it would be in person.
