The Personalities of a Stranger

Creative Portraiture-Mini Assignment 3
Photograph a Stranger

For this assignment I chose to photograph using 35mm black and white film, and I printed on 11x14 in fiber paper.  The big question for this assignment is, what actually classifies someone to be a stranger.  I chose to photograph this family because even though I know their names, and I have met them before I don't really know much about them, which to me makes them strangers.  Through these images I wanted to capture their being shy and trying not to focus on the fact that I was there photographing them.  In each image they never look directly at the camera but I feel the emotions in each image show.

The Quiet in One's Life

Creative Portraiture-Mini Assignment 2
Photograph a Family Member

For this assignment we were to photograph a family member using interior lighting, and we were to portray the word quiet.  It's the simple things in life, that allow us to have those quiet/peaceful moments.  My father was an inspiration for this assignment, in how he enjoys the the simple things to escape from all that makes life crazy.
