From this...O and that everyone could recog- ur biggest project that we did nize. When I took this picture I gotin low to the ground and really getcomputer graphics was this proj- close to the shoes so I could bringect.We had to take a picture of all the details out while recreatinganything besides a human. With the shoe in Adobe Illustrator.

Look a lot of detailpicture of an object that had at the details!
...To This W because you can be sloppy to hen I was finally done this a certain extent at first than get is what the project looked like. I more detailed and careful when you get more to the foreground of Nike’s On Them Feet call it Nike’s on Them Feet. The picture right above the final was the picture. To top off the picture a picture of how the image came and add a more realistic effect, together. What made it possible I put a gradient layer on certain was working in layers. What you parts of the shoes to make them would do is layer or put down the look even more 3 dimensional. stuff the furthest back first and keep adding on top of it. This technique works really well

Perfume For thiscreate was a Macro shot. What a Macro image I used a digital SLR camera. What I had to shot is you take a stationary onbeject and the Macro brings ot all the extreme details within the object and blurs out everything else. I chose my favorite perfume bottle. The details so extreme that you cam see little dust particles. 2010
Running Shoes T he idea behind this image was motion. The way I created the effect of someone running out of their shoes was I used a very slow shutter speed. I had my brother ride a bike behind the stationary shoes while I set up a digital SLR camera on a tripod an snapped the picture. It took a couple tries but I am extremely happy the way it turned out. 2010
love T o create this image I used a digital SLR camera. The way I created this image was I used a very slow shutter speed and made sure that the light in the room was light enough to capture the image but dark enough to actually have the image show up. While doing this you have to make sure the camera is on a tripod or else the image will turn out extremely blurry since the shitter speed is so long.2010
Stairway to... T o create this image I used a Holga camera. I really enjoyed working with a holga camera for the first time because I liked the fact that you don’t know what the image will look like till you actually develop it. The wayI shot this image was I got to ground level on my stomach and shot the strairway going upwards. I enjoy how the blurred out edges tuned out as well. 2010
Color Explosion T o create this image I used a digital SLR camera. The way I created this image was I used a very slow shutter speed and made sure that the light in the room was light enough to capture the image but dark enough to actually have the image show up. While doing this you have to make sure the camera is on a tripod or else the image will turn out extremely blurry since the shitter speed is so long.
Running Water For this imagetothat I used a digital SLRwas a camera. What I wanted create with this image contrast . I really wanted to create a shallow depth of field which is how I got the image to be very focused in the front and blurry in the back. It really helps with allowing the viewers eye to go to where you want it.
