This post is sort of a short update about my time at University this year and about my new competitive portfolio which has gone up which is called ‘Light and Shadows”. My Light and shadows portfolio can be found here:
I’ve just about finished my first year of university. My last assignments were handed in on Friday and all I have left is one exam on the 16th of this month. I’m extremely happy with the quality of work I created this semester. The work I’m most proud is my work in photography and my work in Digital Design. I think I’ve improved greatly from the start of the semester in my ability to create interesting designs for digital design.
I find the process of designing things digitally quite enjoyable and nothing is ever the same as there are so many different ways to design something that is similar. Which is the same as photography. You get a group of photographers together to photograph the same subject and I’m sure very different photos will come from each of them.
In Digital Photography we had weekly assignments which I found quite enjoyable and pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me take pictures and think about subjects that I wouldn’t normally take pictures of. The homage assignment that was the major assessment piece was also very fun and it was good to see how much my skills have improved since my ‘Yanidel’ portfolio. My understanding of photography has greatly improved but I still have a longgggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg way to go. At the least…
Speaking of photography my new portfolio ‘Light and Shadows’ was something that had been in the works for a couple of months and I managed to tie it into my homage assignment for Digital Photography. The focus of Light and Shadows is quite obviously light and shadows but with a focus on what I call ‘light spots’ (spots or rays of light that can be used to frame the subject of the image and decrease the many distractions that can be found in the city streets) and interesting shadows or silhouettes. I tried to focus on finding interesting subjects in interesting locations and tried my best to bring emotion into my images.
When creating this series for my Digital Photography assignment I edited them in a way I thought my tutor would appreciate while also keeping to the original idea. But for my website I’ve left them mostly unedited like my normal work on here. Maybe one day I’ll release the edited versions of the images but for now I’d like to keep them how they are.
I really hope you like the new portfolio, I personally am extremely proud of it but still know there is a long way to go for me in photography. Until next time!
