I am most proud of the "Extreme Closeup" project; more specifically, the image of the teapot.
I really like this image because of the unusual perspective aspect of it. It shows a part of an everyday object that someone might not look at very closely. This image affected my learning in that it allowed me to explore a style of photography that I really like, and I was able to improve at it.
One of the three most memorable experiences that I had in photography has been when I've had to do an assignment in a style that I don't normally use. It helps me to see things in new ways, and also to improve my other photos. It allows me to use certain aspects of that style in my other photos, which adds to the composition. Another experience that I had was going to the Cumberland Fair to photograph. I don't usually like to photograph in big, open spaces with lots of people, but this project gave me a great opportunity to try it. I was able to take great photos, and I learned how to photograph large groups, which is something I did not know how to do properly before. A third memory that I have from photography is writing reflections. At the beginning of the year, I didn't really like to write about my photos, but now I see that the reflections help me understand what I've done well and what I can do better. Although they may be a bit time consuming, they are worth it. Overall, I've really enjoyed this class and look forward to working with almost everyone next semester!
