In this project we had to take pictures in our normal everyday lives. The pictures could be be a candid portrait or environmental portrait with our normal every day settings or normal interactions with other people. We needed just a plain view of things from our own point of view with ourselves in it. Along with that, we had to use things we learned from past projects and make it into a fun filled 6×9 picture.
In my pictures, I chose I felt took a big part of my life. Which was taking pictures for my church, for own artistic enjoyment, my everyday routine of waiting for my friends to walk to class, my flowery personality as I teach my students how to have fun and lead at the same time, as well as pictures of myself that I’m proud of having. For the sunset camera picture, I cropped parts of it out and let it fade in because the picture was too large to fit the canvas and I didn’t want to leave any important things out. And to sum up all the other pictures I used principles from filters, action sequence, and all the other projects we’ve done.
