I finally made my mind up on what I wanted to do my final project one, and I am very happy with my final decision. I decided to do my final project on something I like to call “Moments with Jesus.” This is the time I like to go out to Glendale and just look at the world around me while I read my Bible. This is my favorite picture from the series because it is based on a story that I have always tried to remember. It’s the story of how when you are struggling that’s when Jesus is carrying you that’s why there is only on set of foot prints in the sand. With exams and projects being due, I needed to remember this more than ever. I love the color on my Bible because that blue is my favorite color and it just makes the picture pop. I also love the red color in the rock because it makes the blue even more dominant in the picture.
This is a shot from what I had originally was going to do my final project on. I was going to show the art of graffiti on a mountain. After presenting it is class on Wednesday May 4th, I decided that I did not like it at all. I love this picture though because of how the mountain is curved and how the viewer can tell because of how the people are standing. The people help to establish a border between the trees and the rocks. I love all of the colors that ended up in this shot because it just makes me look everywhere and notice every inch of the shot. My favorite part about this picture is how the trees keep getting fogger as they continue to the top of the picture. I love how they have this mist coat on them because it gives the trees this feeling of mystery.

I was in a group with Ashlee Gomez, Ashley Cantey, Ben Ollic, and Kendall Eoute. We decided to reenact a photo of some friends drinking and playing a card game. It was a lot of fun planning out the shot with them. I love this picture because of how relaxed we all look and how mean we all look. When I first saw this picture, I laughed so hard because we all look so mean and unhappy. We had to hold our faces still for five seconds, so we just sat there. I would have liked the picture more if we would have had the cards showing because you can only see the cards in Ashlee Gomez’s hand. Also, if we could have been able to smile that would have made the shot look happier. Ben Ollic is a little blurry in the background, so I wish that we could have moved the scene a little closer to the camera.
This week we had to find old photographs that we found interesting, so that we could recreate the image. I found this one and thought that it was interesting because of all the guys just hanging out on the porch. It made me think of me and my friends and how we like to hang outside and just talk. I love these kinds of photos because they just capture the moment perfectly. Although it takes a while for these photos to be taken, it just makes the photos come out peaceful and perfect. Black and white photography really help make the moment pause because the viewers just focus on the people instead of all the other things. Colors cause distractions in photo like this because the viewer wants to look at the sky, grass, and houses. I love the old signs in the background on the store because it just reminds me of how in the old days people could go and just hang out anywhere and have a good time.

This is a photography by Glen Rowell. Glen Rowell is well known for his start with National Geographic. He was never afraid to go to any limits to get a photo, such as, rock climbing to get the shot he was after. Glen Rowell has set new standards with film when it comes to depth, lighting, and filter. This is one of my favorite photos by Glen Rowell because of how it is dark around the waterfall and then there is an orange light right in the middle. The orange really helps to make the viewer focus on the waterfall. It makes the eye see it from the top all the way down to the bottom of the waterfall. The blue in the sky also helps to bring the viewers eye right to the waterfall because it give a starting point for them to look at. The orange light helps to see the details in the rocks too.
