There is this abandoned church near my house that I have been eyeing for a few months... a few weeks ago I wanted to check it out! I went around 5:30 and the lighting was absolutely perfect! So I took advantage of that of course! The lighting was creating awesome shadows on the church giving it a taunting feel. Perfect opportunity for a black & white photo! I was a little nervous to show my teacher, because I wasn't sure how she would react.......well she liked it :) And its going in my portfolio!

My friend Lindsay came into the studio a couple weeks ago and I was able to shoot a portrait of her. I was going for a simple chic black & white photograph! I shot against a white background using one light on a soft box! I am so pleased with the results! I am happy to say that one of the images from that shoot is going in my portfolio! Thank goodness! Take a look :)
For my portfolio class, one of our assignments was to shoot for section D ( advertising ). I had this really pretty old fashion perfume bottle that I wanted to shoot along with some incense. The shoot went well even though lighting it was very difficult! During the critique, my teacher liked my shot but she suggested that I shot only the bottle making it more about the bottle. So I gave that a shot and I'm glad I did! My teacher liked it and it is now going in my portfolio! Take a look at my shot from my first shoot and my second!
A couple weeks ago, my class had the opportunity to photograph food... sounds easy right?? Absolutely not! It was a challenge to say the least. We were paired up with a chief from the culinary department, and our goal in the end was to make the food look good and tasteful. My dish was Wisconsin Beer Cheese Soup. I wanted to make my set to look very rustic to go along with the soup. We got down to culinary around 9 am and we didn't leave the school until 6pm. It was a very long day, but very worth it. I believe we all learned a lot, and I came out with a pretty neat shot :)
