Final Photobook

Making this photobook was so fun because I was a chance to look back through all of the photos I’ve taken this semester and see how much I’ve grown as a photographer. I learned a lot more about how to use Photoshop, Lightroom, and InDesign.

The font is the same throughout, and I used the rectangles on the front as repeating design elements. When I printed it, the text was cut off a little bit on each page, so enjoy the pdf because it looks better than the actual book does.

Fine Art Print

This is probably my favorite photo I’ve taken all semester. I know it’s shown up in a few posts previous to this, but it was my first choice for getting it printed as well. In order to make it more prepared to print, I darkened the background and increased the vibrancy of the veggies. The focal point of this photo is the tomatoes, and I love how the man in the background is not looking at the camera.

Composite Image

For this assignment, we took two separate photos and blended them together using layer masks in Photoshop.

Top 5 Images

This semester I had the opportunity to take some pretty cool photos. Choosing my 5 favorite wasn’t too difficult, because out of the 4000 or so that I took, only a handful really caught my eye. But that’s photography, right?

Photobook- First 6 Pages

These are the first six pages of my photobook: the front and back covers, a photospread, as well as my bio and table of contents. As you can see, its still a work in progress.

 

Themed Images

For this assignment, we took a series of themed photos while visiting Bannack. I really liked the look of the old rusty tools lying in the grass, and took it as an opportunity for photos.
