The poster project was defiantly one of a kind for me. It was pretty stressful, that surprised me. I thought that I had done enough large printing projects to keep me from any stress, but that proved to not be the case as I tried to get everything to work out. But in the end everything worked out great. I only wish I would have been able to get a larger print for Snowday, but oh well. They turned out really good.

Night photography is often very difficult to do because if you don’t want any type of blur or noise, you have to do a lot of thinking. That is not the case when you desire a blurred effect. It is much easier and presents an opportunity to have fun and not worry so much if you subject stays in focus and has no graininess to it.

My wife and I love our Dyson vacuum. So I thought, what if I needed to sell the thing. Sad day yes, but how could I position the thing so that it looks the most appealing when I go to sell it. Well, cutouts seemed to me the best solution. I could position the Dyson in the best possible angle, forgetting about the foreground, snap the shot and then cutout all the foreground leaving just the awesome Dyson. So here’s how I accomplished the cutouts.

Photo-a-day is always fun to do. Recording everyday life from the perspective of a camera not only helps photographers enhance their skills. But it also records history for all to see and remember. I can’t wait to do this sort of thing when my wife and I have kids.

If you have ever seen the Amazon Kindle comercial you will understand how I implemented the following illusion. I took one shot, this image is not edited. And now, my balancing skills are pretty sweet, but not this good. The photo is an illusion.

Look closely.  Don’t be deceived.  These are not snowflakes, they are tools. Scanography has to be the funnest assignment I have done this semester.  Scanography is where a photographer uses a simple scanner in place of a camera.  Scanography can be accomplished by scanning a variety of objects all at once, or one object at a time.  I have done both, so check it out.

This group of edited photos were the first of their kind that I’ve ever produced. We learned some awesome enhancing tricks in class that were implemented in all these photos. My favorite was the luminosity effect that I learned from an online tutorial. (see here) It was so fun to accomplish something so cool.

As I’ve said before, taking awesome portraits is my most difficult challenge. I try my hardest, there are so many variable to a great composed portrait that I have a long way to go before I’m completely comfortable. The knowledge I have working with me revolves around lighting, contrast, proper framing and an artistic eye. What I don’t know are all the techniques to making humans look their best. I’ll keep working at it.

Panoramic photography makes for some amazing shots. It’s so hard to pack all of God’s beautiful creations into a single shot. Taking multiple shots on the same axis line is ideal for capturing more of a scene, but most people don’t know that software exists to “stitch” those photos together so do not do so. With the photo’s below, I’ll explain how you can create beautiful panoramic shots.
