I really wish that I had had more time to work on this photo challenge. I think that shadows are so unique and you can create some really artistic images using them. I would have loved to play with and create scenes with shadows rather than just taking photos of shadows and if I had more time before the end of the year I would definitely go back and spend some more time working on this photo challenge to create some really interesting and creative photos.
I am extremely proud of how these photos turned out! I was a little worried at first, I thought that capturing authentic emotions would be difficult. I thought that my photos would look staged and I felt awkward just following my friends around with a camera. The first few photos I took did turn out very awkward because my friends were very aware of the presence of the camera. After spending some more time with them I was able to sneak a shot in the middle of their sweet smiles and laughs. I really enjoyed taking these photos because the subject matter is important to me and I love capturing my friends unique and interesting personalities.
I love love love this photo! I think it really captures Vancouver in a new light. This building is clearly not in the best shape. You can see old parts, paint touch ups, and wear from years of use. This building has a very grungy look to it, and yet this photo is quite breathtaking. One of my goals for photography this year was to find and capture beauty in the ordinary. I think this image really embodies that vision. This photo is of 'nothing special' though it is quite stunning.
I am a little disappointed with how this photo challenge turned out. Some of the examples of Still Life Photography that I have seen are absolutely stunning. In comparison my photos are lacking. I really like the idea of this photo challenge but I found the execution was difficult. Maybe when I have some more time I will reattempt this challenge to hopefully produce some better photos. Of my three photos I think this one is the most interesting. It displays three pears that are badly bruised while they look to not be ripe yet. Ithink this photo has a really interesting mood and the shadows really add a unique feel to this image.
