Portrait Photography

I took these five photographs of my little sister for portrait photography. I tried formal portrait photography for most of these photographs. I also did detail portrait photography. That is my first picture of my sisters yellow sneakers. I tried doing candid photography, but sometimes that didn't really get the effect I wanted. My sister was very natural on her own this made it easy to capture my sisters sweet yet spicy personality. Thats why these were my favorite they explained her very well. I tried to keep my pictures as simple as possible. I tried close up head shots, and those were not my favorite.

Macro Photography

These photos were my best because I was able to make sure there wasn't too much going on in the background with these. I choose this subject, which is my spiral curler, because I thought that the spirals on it would make for an interesting picture. I really learned that having a steady place to take these pictures really helps them come out clear and crisp like they should be. I also learned that a shallow depth of field is best for macro photography. I also think it is important to have a simple background that doesn't draw your attention this way you are just focused on the subject.
