1. Do I have a strong composition? I think i do have strong composition in these photos.
  2. How well did I edit my photographs? I think my photographs were edited pretty well however they could’ve been edited better. 
  3. What would I do differently if I shot this assignment again? What I would do differently is shoot this picture somewhere else. 
  4. Do you think your photographs belong on the blog home page and should be considered one of the best from all the photo classes? I think if anything the first one belongs there but I do know there’s other better pictures than mine that deserve it more. 


I think Salvador Dali is a very great surrealist artist. You can right away tell the images he paints and where the surrealism is meant to be. His paintings are so beautiful along with the format and the vibrant colors. This allows his paintings to be so eye catching nd catches everyone’s attention. Seeing his drawings inspire me because seeing how beautiful and slick his paintings I would like to capture/make such beautiful photos. This photo is my favorite because I love the color of the water and the colors of the butterfly and the way the cloud looks. I also think this is a good painting because the butterfly’s match there so perfectly they look like the sail.

The google definition for conceptual is “relating to or based on mental concepts”. In my opinion conceptual is a great way to express your feelings without using words, and a conceptual self portrait is a great way to express your form of being in a picture. My conceptual self portrait is a picture of a single pearl necklace given to me by a person very special to me. This person themselves is good representation of me. We both get hurt, mad, sad, and happy the same way . Me and this person also love the exact same. We have the exact humor and the exact form of thinkin. Me and this person are very close that this necklace is special to me.  However the necklace being given to me by someone special is not how this represents me. I never take off this necklace because I feel as if this simple necklace proves that a simple person can be let into my life. Its always a struggle for me to trust people/ let people be a part of my life because I hurt easily. And sometimes that can take a turn on my social life, family life and  school life. And this necklace proves that there is always going to be at least 1 trust worthy person, and that is a beautiful thing to feel. This necklace makes me feel human. And I know its silly to think that about this necklace. But I feel as if the necklace represent the person that gave it to me. This person has been in my life for a long time they make me feel safe, comfort, happiness, and love. However always being away and so far from this person having the necklace around my neck makes me feel as is they’re always nearby no matter what.  And having so many emotions and feelings is a great part of being human.



I chose this picture from Cindy Sherman because I think she looks beautiful and so does the view. I think her beauty and self confidence outshines the beauty of the ocean itself behind her. I think her style and work is worthy of being famous because her using a lot of black and white catches the eye of the audience. I also feel like her mostly taking pictures of herself kind of gives a boost of confidence to other girls. She is beautiful and so is her work which is why she’s famous.

I  got this picture from . I think this is such a good photographer because his editing caught my eye and his bottom view angle. I think this photograph is successful  because it captured the height, the lights of the tower and the blue color of the sky and its looks very pretty.


Depth of field is when A camera can only focus its lens at a single point. However there will be an area  in front of and behind this focus point that would still appear sharp. Depth of field is not a fixed distance it can change in size and can be either shallow or deep. A shallow depth of field is where only a narrow zone appears sharp. A Good depth of field is where more of the picture appears sharp. Since depth of field impacts the aesthetic and technical quality of a picture. You’ll want to use an extensive depth of field for you to keep everything sharp sometimes.

Depth of field is controlled by how you change the aperture setting on your camera. If you want a shallow depth of field you would use a larger aperture. That means a smaller portion of your image will be in focus and the rest blurred. If you want a good depth of field you use  smaller aperture making more of your image be in focus. Although aperture setting is important to depth of field so is  camera position so you can achieve a shallow depth of field.
