  • 1. Photography Portfolio By Emily Gagnon
  • 2. Introduction
    • My photography portfolio is filled with
    • photographs I took all year long. Some of them were used in some of my projects, others never quite made it there. There are pictures of about anything and any style.
    • I believe that photography is art. And when it comes to art, music is what inspires me the most. Therefore, I decided to name every picture with a song title that represent it.
    • So this is what my year in photography class ended up being…
  • 3. First photo section: Miscellaneous.
  • 4. Title: Cold Day In The Sun Where: My old front yard Purpose: I took this picture for the calendar project. This one represented November. Somewhat haunting, I think the picture brings out the coldness of the season. The tree is empty, just like the feeling of November.
  • 5. Title: Naked Fears. Where: Home. Purpose: Sometimes, we all feel as though time goes by way too fast, and sometimes, it can be frightening. This picture represent the fear of time.
  • 6. Title: This Is Our Town Where: My hometown Purpose: This picture means a lot to me. I took it one week before I moved out of my hometown. I lived there for 12 years and this place just feels like home to me. I was with my two best friends when I took it, and we were on the top of the arena like we used to do almost every night. I miss this town like you have no idea.
  • 7.
    • Title: If Winter Ends
    • Where: Old Quebec
    • Purpose: For the calendar
    • Project.
  • 8. Title: In Bloom Where: Near the school. Purpose: This picture was taken when spring was coming to an end and summer was slowly coming. We can see the sun lighting up the tree creating a contrast between it and the blue sky. We can also see some leaves meaning it was blooming.
  • 9. Title: As My Guitar Gently Weeps Where: In my room. Purpose: I wanted to represent one of my passion through a picture so I took out all my music sheets, laid them on the floor and placed my acoustic guitar on it.
  • 10. Second photo section: My Secret Place. Where: In Neufchatel, near my house. Somewhere in a forest, near a river. Purpose: Demonstrate the place where I go to think and be alone through pictures.
  • 11. Title: River Flows In You
  • 12. Title: Take Apart Your Head
  • 13. Title: Down By The River
  • 14. Title: Clarity

  • 27. Fifth photo section: Friends. Where: At home or outside… Purpose: The two first pictures are pictures of my best friend. I was trying to do a calendar project that represented different feelings but I ended up not using the pictures as I wasn’t really satisfied with them. These two are the only ones I think that demonstrates certain feelings originally. The last pictures are simple attempts to capture good times between my friends and I through pictures.

  • 38. What I learned about myself as a photographer…
    • This year, in photography class, I could say that I learned a lot about different styles of pictures and different way to photograph things and it’s true.... But honestly, what I really learned this year is that with a little thought and some time, you can come up with pictures that represents different objects, person or landscape in a way no one but yourself sees it. It’s somewhat strange to see that you can be creative through a picture that represents a reality. I did learn a lot about photography, and I enjoyed learning about it. I learned about myself too; I realized that photography might not be what I like the most. I enjoy looking and discovering pictures but I have difficulty coming up with really outstanding photographs myself. I love art, in every way. But photography is just not my favorite way to go. But still, I’m grateful for what I have learned this year, because finding originality and creativity in something plain and simple as reality is a true gift.
