The title of this photo was “A Taste of Eternity”. The caption included the newlywed couple Ashley and Zachary Gill preparing to cut their first piece of cake to share with each other at their wedding reception on Saturday. This first photo was an opportunity for me to capture the truest act of love, a wedding. This took place in Wheatland, Wyoming on Saturday, March 2, 2013. My grandmother had mentioned that the wedding of her assistant manager was taking place, so I jumped at the opportunity to take photos of this event. This experience was definitely an emotional one because I adore weddings and the thought of romance. So, taking pictures of a couple that was taking a giant step in starting their lives together was great subject matter. The one thing that was difficult about taking these pictures was that everyone wanted to take their own photos, so it was hard getting into a position where I could take a creative shot without interfering with other photo takers. The creative device that I used was experimentation. There were so many other shots of different poses they made while getting ready to cut the cake, but out of all of them, this was my favorite.
Dwight Howard gets fouled and is allowed two free throw shots, making both shots put the Lakers in the lead during second quarter.
The title for this photo is, ” Dwight Howard’s Free Throw”. The caption included: Dwight Howard gets fouled and is allowed two free throw shots, making both shots put the Lakers in the lead during second quarter. The Denver Nuggets vs. L.A. Lakers game was a lot of fun to go to with my father after he offered me a ticket to have a father-daughter date. The spirits of the arena were so high with excitement and adrenalin while the crowds were cheering for their favorite teams. There were so many great war faces to capture and hands being thrown up in the air over a call they deemed unnecessary. At some points during the game I actually had to remember that my mission was to take photos instead of enjoying all of the excitement. I was so absorbed in the game that taking pictures was the last thing on my mind but, having these great seats made it pretty easy to get the perfect shots of the players and the game. Not having an adequate camera to photograph from made it difficult to capture motion shots because the photos always came out blurry. When I did get decent shots, however, it was fun to look at because I had captured the skill of that particular player. The creative device that I used for this photo was cropping because in the midst of the crazy fan based background, Dwight stood out because I had zoomed in on him in order to make him the main focus, which then made it a fun picture.
Mister Ian and Mrs. Lydia Housers were shopping for a birthday gift for their friend while holding little Tyler at Frontier Mall in March 1, 2013
Cute Baby Cheeks was taken at Frontier Mall in Cheyenne while I was looking for other photo opportunities. The Houser family was shopping for a watch to give to their friend whose birthday was that weekend. I was literally walking around the mall looking for cute photo opportunities when I see a Mr. Houser standing Tyler on the display case and talking that cute baby talk with him. Even though I missed that shot, I got the next best thing which was Tyler being held in a loving embrace by his father. This photo wasn’t hard to get, but with the camera on my phone, the pictures didn’t come out as clear as I had hoped. I felt so happy taking this photo because I love it when fathers are involved with their children and aren’t afraid to make funny noises to make their child smile. the creative device used in this photo was contrast because the family was dark against the light background of the store.
Shawna Lopez was holding her son, Issac’s hand while shopping at the mall. She says she loves to come to the mall with her son to tire him out for the night. Mommy’s Date to the Mall was taken at Frontier Mall on March 1, 2013.
Mommy’s Date to the Mall was also taken at Frontier Mall that same night. As I entered the mall, I saw this cute photo opportunity. Shawna was holding little Issac’s hand while shopping for some clothes. I love parent child photos so I felt like I had to take that shot because it was so adorable. it wasn’t difficult getting this photo because the opportunity was right there when I walked in. I used experimentation as my creative device.
Big sister Jamie Sullivan holding little sister Kylee Sullivan’s hand was telling her to not look at the underwear at Victoria Secrets because they were for mommy at the frontier Mall in Cheyenne on Friday, March 1, 2013
The Little Angels In the Mall was shot in the same place at the same time as Cute Baby Cheeks. Two little girls were in Victoria Secrets with their parents looking at underwear when they got shy and ran away. I loved shooting this photo because it shows the innocence of little girls. It was rather difficult to get this photo because they moved around so much.
I learned how to interact with others for great photos.
Nothing surprised me about this assignment because I experienced all of it during the photography assignment.
I wish I had a better camera to shoot better photos with.
