Ashley’s 2018/19 Photography Portfolio
When I take photos, they’re minimal but I make them look aesthetic or more pleasing to the eye, whether that’s with colour or the way it’s framed. I try to use colour because it can really make the photo stand out and make it have more detail. I think photographers/artist should try to find their own style to make them unique, so they can stand out to other people and draw them in. My future with photography is questionable because I will continue to take photos because that’s what I enjoy doing, but not as a career. But who knows what will happen in the future?
Natural Light Portraits
Studio Light Portraits
Elements and Principles
i. What part of your finished portfolio did you find most successful and why?
I really like the studio light, and elements and principles photos. I’m proud of how they turned out, and some photos did take a bit of time to execute so I’m glad they turned out nice.
ii. What part of your finished portfolio did you find least successful and why?
Probably my typology project because it didn’t really turn out how I wanted too, and I was having a bit of trouble with it.
iii. If you had the time, what project would you like to redo and why?
Definitely creative zone because that’s when I just started to learn how to use the camera and what kinds of photos/methods there are, so I wasn’t that experienced with it. But now I’ve learned more and could take better photos then ii did before.
iv. Any final thoughts?
I came into this class knowing almost nothing bout how to use a camera, but now I’ve learned a lot and I think that’s great.
