Small Room Portrait

The last requirement that I was missing for my portrait portfolio was the small room portrait. It was very last minute but I like the outcome that I got. Thank you Lance for modeling for me at such the last minute, I know how much you hate the camera!


A requirement for my object portfolio was to have a photograph of metal in it. I decided to photograph a juicer. It was not the easiest experience I had, because the size of the objet that I chose I had to use 5 panels and 5 lights to try and reduce the specular highlights on the juicer.

Pharmaceutical Reshoot

Those of you that have been following my blog will probably recognize this subject. My teacher showed me some problems with my last pharmaceutical so I wanted to reshoot to make the image stronger. The main problem was the composition. After playing around with the composition for a while, this is final image I came up with.

Location Portraits

For my portrait portfolio I was required to have a street location portrait. Thank you Hannah for being willing to model for me even though it was a little cold.

I also was required to have a outside portrait that had nature it in. Thank you Holli for volunteering to model at the last minute.

Word Salad

For my last project in my digital imaging class we were required to make a creative montage. We were given five words that had to show in our final image. The words could be shown discretely or could be made very obvious. The type of person I was supposed to represent was a business professional. My theme was supposed to be allegory, and my three objects were window, farming equipment, coffee cup.

Peppermint Fun

For my object portfolio we were required to have an image with glass. I wanted to photograph something that kind of pertained to Christmas so I chose to photograph a bunch of different types of peppermints in a candy jar.

The hardest part about this was to light the peppermints that were actually in the candy jar. It was quite challenging to do this without messing up the lighting on the glass. Overall I think that the final image turned out quite well. 

Long Term Portraits

For my portrait lighting class we were required to take three portraits of the same person. One of them in studio and the two others could represent their hobby or career. Jennifer Lamonds was nice enough to volunteer three different days to model for me. Thank you Jen!

Forensic Photography

In class yesterday Gary Knight, a forensic photographer, came to help us learn more about forensic photography. We learned loads of stuff. This is an image I took of a handprint on a glass window.
