This image is my lighter shade of purple, which relates to my theme of "dominant color" because the main focus of this picture draws your eyes to the surrounding color around the object. I decided to take my images through different distortions and magnifications in order to bring more detail into my main concept. Other than color, this image depicts shape and pattern, as the object is repeatedly being shown in a circular form. 
For my red-orange picture, I decided to include this image into my portfolio because the main color is shown through the different shades of the seasoning, which I had spread at the bottom of the image so everybody's main focus goes there first. For this image, I decided to use this magnification because not only is color being utilized, but the shape of the triangle plays a big part in bringing the image all together. With the triangle piece out, it creates a distortion among the object, while also drawing the attention to the main color focus.…

AP Portfolio My concentration is built around the idea of dominant color. The dominant color being the one that typically draws your eye to first. I wanted to have a portfolio that showed every aspect of dominant color through the different types of objects and pieces. For example, My first image had to be captured with the angle of the V8 can being faced forward, so that the word "Orange" automatically draws your eyes to the color of the background. Although my concentration is based on dominant color I did not want to be too basic, so I decided to add some different features. One key feature being the ice cubes, I want people to understand that the drink is supposed to be refreshing, and not just have a basic can with an orange background. My next image, being the grapes, depicts an idea that I want to carry through all of my pictures. This picture really comes through to me as it shows some of the main elements of art. I wanted to play around a little more with this pict…

For my self portrait I decided to use mixer brushes to mix my background because I wanted to give it an artistic feel. I had to use around 4 different brushes to mix and I started out by pulling the colors  from the background and my clothing. I then had to use a smoother brush to really pull everything together and make it look more like part of the setting.

Negative- For this image I decided to invert the colors and bring some of the color levels up and down in order to have different tone values running throughout the image. And I wanted to have the stronger tones running towards the plant and have the lighter tones in the back since they are not the main focus. 
contrast- To portray contrast I wanted to have a repetition of an object and have the black and white colors scattered through the image. I decided to darken more of the black in order to show a clear contrast between the white.  Dichotomy- This image was actually more difficult to portray than I had expected. My idea was to have a dead leaf and an alive and bright leaf and merge them together to show opposite sides but merging as one. Though lining it up was much harder since the lines were not straight and the lighting was not the same, made it more difficult to do.

These are my pictures that were taken over the past two years that I find interesting and strong because of the work that has gone on behind it. Each picture that has been taken has a different message and or elements of art behind it.

This image was taken in order to portray light gels. I took 2 different gel colors and put them on a light in order to make 2 different colors on each side of the face. 
This picture was created for Bokeh. I had taken a picture of a bundle of Christmas lights and moved close in order to capture the effect. 
For my studio portrait I wanted to have a model against a clean background with wind blowing up in the hair. 
For light trails I was able to have the lightbar moved side to side around the picture.

This image was taken in order to portray the many circular shapes found in this image. I chose this picture in order to show the various shapes. I pointed my focal point more towards the larger circle to show my subject. I cropped this image a little tighter in, in order to not lose focus on the shapes. 
I decided to have this picture taken for lines because it is a repeated amount the same structure. The depth of field is mainly focused in the center of the image to capture clarity, and I decided the rest should not be brought out clearly in the image because it would be distracting in the photo. 
For this picture I wanted to portray "half" in a unique way. I decided to use shadows in order to split the image in a different way. My depth of field is focused more towards the actual middle of the shadow to show what is being done. I decided to leave this image cropped the way it is with more space because my focal point is on the acorn alone so it is not too distracting.
