my portfolo

  1. 1. Art. The objection of values
  2. 2. Teamwork <ul><li>Taken on a school retreat, people were asked to scale a wall using only team work and brute strength. This image is a visual reminder that we need help in life sometimes. We can try our hardest but we cant quite get there until a hang comes from out of the dark to save us. </li></ul><ul><li>This photo won 1 st place at TAPPS Dallas regional's. Then it went on to win 4 th at the state compition. </li></ul>Working toward a common end
  3. 3. Restraint <ul><li>We’ve all felt this way before. </li></ul><ul><li>Bound and helpless. </li></ul><ul><li>On first glance you see a mans hands retrained and trapped, but upon closer inspection one sees that there is a way out. If he would only try, he could become free. </li></ul><ul><li>I wonder how this can relate to our own lives. We feel trapped not knowing where to go or what to do. </li></ul><ul><li>I ponder though, if we only look a little bit harder, will we see that there is a solution just around the corner? </li></ul>To deprive of liberty.
  4. 4. Advancement <ul><li>It was the last days of high school. I’ve walked these halls for years. I was beginning a new chapter in my life. I was going to go to community college for duel credit class. It was a difficult choice, but I left my high school and all my friends to start something new. </li></ul><ul><li>I worked on this image over the course of a month, I brought my camera up to the school and tried different angles placing the camera. on top of lockers, on the ground and on chairs. then I went home and studied my photos to see where I could improve. The next day I had my camera and I knew vaguely what angle would work. I took about 50 images, each a little bit different. Out of all of them, this I believe is the best. I love the focus of the doors and sense of motion in the boy. </li></ul>A forward step
  5. 5. Salvation <ul><li>I waited for this image. </li></ul><ul><li>I saw it in my minds eye. </li></ul><ul><li>The hands came, </li></ul><ul><li>From out of the frame. </li></ul><ul><li>The Touch. </li></ul><ul><li>my image. </li></ul>Deliverance from destruction The beauty of this image really came out in post processing. In Adobe Lightroom I darkened the edges. Adjusted the white balance and added a bit of warmth to the image. Finally before exporting it, I increased the green value hopefully leaving a sense of hope and safety in the image.
  6. 6. Love <ul><li>It was a lonely day for me. My friends gone for the week. I was alone on a Friday night. I checked my phone, I received a txt from my friend, reminding me that I was loved, even though I was alone that day. I was loved by my friends. </li></ul><ul><li>This image is a personal reminder to me that while I may feel alone and vulnerable. I am loved. By not just my parents but by my friends as well. </li></ul>To express Kindness To be patient, To protect, To trust, To hope and persevere.
  7. 7. Truth <ul><li>Some art is subjective in meaning. </li></ul><ul><li>This image won 4 th place at regional TAPPS. At state it was given honorable mention. </li></ul>A fact verified.
  8. 8. Illumination <ul><li>Taken in my garage in 100+ degree heat, with a black blanket behind me as a background, and one light bulb inches from my face. </li></ul><ul><li>The goal with this image was to learn more of Photoshop advance filters. I used mainly the ‘cutout’ filter and adjusted the sliders until I felt that I had a strong image. </li></ul>Seeing the truth
  9. 9. Dualism <ul><li>I was sitting at a table waiting to meet someone. And I saw this disposable camera body. I saw a image, with on lamp hanging above me and the sun setting in the background I had wonderful lighting and a abstract idea in my mind. What if I could make a image that expressed a philosophical dualistic approach to life? </li></ul><ul><li>This image is about our self-nature. Like this disposable camera body which needs another part to be called “useful”. Our skin and bones are only half of the story, A shell for the other half. The mind. We need our mind, or else we’d be like this ‘camera,’ empty and hallow. </li></ul>Coexistence in life
  10. 10. Contact <ul><li>At a camp 1 hour north of Mexico, in the middle of no where. There is a phone to reach the outside. </li></ul><ul><li>Its where things happen. A call to a long lost friend, a call home, even breakups. Whether its a simple 'hello' or a long goodbye, lives change in this simple phone booth. </li></ul><ul><li>Created over the course of a week, I immediately saw this image in my mind and over the week worked on perfecting the final piece. I like how the wood on the right hand side, frames the whole image and gives a sense of peaking in. The strong light source gives a stark contrast and prevents a bland color wash out. While it may have taken a week to perfect, it was well worth the time invested. </li></ul>A coming together
  11. 11. Unification <ul><li>Taken from 540 different peoples portraits. At TAPPS I had some free time and decided to go up to people and ask if I could take there photo. Over 500 people said yes and there photos now reside in this mosaic. I created this with a program I found on the web. While I believe it is a much better picture in a large format print. Its still a interesting picture for the word unification. </li></ul>Out of the many one
  12. 12. Mystery <ul><li>Taken at the state fair of Texas. This girl made eye contact with me and just gazed into the lens. I don’t even know her name. The only thing I know from her is what I can see in this image. The piece leads a mind to a mystery, who is she? Why is her hair wet? Why is she just looking at me? This image stands on its own and lets me take a moment to question the world around me. </li></ul>A unexplained inexplicable secret
