Past Photos

My name is LeeAnn Shaffer and I am from the San Francisco Bay Area. I am a Junior at Brigham Young University-Idaho and I’m studying Communications with an emphasis in Organizational Communications and Advocacy. I am also taking classes in Visual communications, to better develop skills in photography and graphic design.


The first four of these photos was taken in my Canon 30D, with a 55 mm lens. I don’t have a specific subject that I am interested in photographing currently, but I do like photos of people doing things. The first two photos, which were taken on the school campus, caught my attention because of the light. I plan on going back and trying to get a better photo.

Assignment: To create a magazine cover and a two page spread.


  1. The first thing I did was create the layout in InDesign. I made a cover as well as a two page spread.
  2.  I then found a photo that I liked and wanted to use for the background of the cover. I also chose four photos that I liked.
  3. I downloaded fonts from Google to use and tried multiple fonts on the cover before I found the one that I like.
  4. To create the article spread, I found a devotional that I liked, and then I created columns to place the text.
  5. I added five images which were required, that I took myself.
