Rule of Thirds 2

In this series on the rule of thirds I decided to use more of the rule of thirds version that featured an object in the corner and still complied  to the rule of thirds. I tried to find interesting objects with plain but complicated backgrounds that highlighted the objects that are complying with the rule of thirds. I tried to take photos of a wide variety of things to add to the overall series.

Rule of Thirds

For this series I used the rule of thirds to create panels in my photographs that divide the world into thirds and have a different type of spacial awareness when looking for photos to take. In this series of the rule of thirds I have mentally divided photos into three panels of different light values. In some of these cases I found instances where the panels were physically divided as well as having different characteristics to them. I have found this to be a challenging project so far, especially when applying the rule of thirds to photos without people in them.

"Blast From The Past" High School

In High School so far I have a lot of memories of my martial arts dojo, which has had a major impact on my life so far. My computer has also been a big influence, I use it for school work as well as entertainment. South Park and Family Guy are shows I watch a lot and I have a lot of memories of them. Also, Drew has also had a major impact because I transferred to Drew sophomore year. All of these photos relate very well to my memories of High School so far.

"blast from the past" middle school

These pictures represent memories from when I was in middle school. I traveled to Mexico and Joshua Tree and Portugal, and these are all represented by my pictures. Traveling really made a big impression on me and made for really fun summers. I also have many memories of movies that came out when I was in middle school, like 300 and Casino Royal. Video games were also what I spent a lot of time on, like Halo. All in all these images invoke a lot memories for me.

"Blast From The Past" late childhood

For this series I found images from my late childhood and early teens that inspired me to remember the past and childhood memories. Movies like The Lord of The Rings and Star Wars were my favorite movies as an almost teenager and the years even before that. Also games like Agent under Fire and Age of Empires, and TV shows like The Simpsons were things I really enjoyed.

"Blast From The Past"

I went to Lego land when I was six and it was awesome at the time.

I watched the Aristocats a lot when I was really young.

I went to Disney Land when I was 5 or 6 and it was magical-ish.

Spiderman was my favorite superhero when I was a kid and I had lots of action figures.

Wily Coyote was a favorite character of mine in cartoons.

Jungle book was one of my favorite movies in my younger childhood.

Bugs bunny was my all time favorite cartoon as a child.

Close up Focus series

For this series we used focus and macro mode on the camera to focus on one object or person then shift perspective and make the background blurry. I experimented with many different ways of doing this, but simple and very focused, with a dash of humor thrown in with the mustache, ended up being the best photo. This was a really fun series to do.
