My scale of 1-10 on how hard i worked this semester on my photography would be an 8 at the beginning of the semester and a 7 towards the end due to difficulty finding time to actually take the pictures.

I have changed significantly since the beginning of Photo 1. My pictures have gone from very amateur to more complex with more meaning. I have learned new techniques and editing styles and I have also become much better at coming up with my own ideas and adapting to the given assignments considering my photographs are almost always portraits.

I am most proud of the fact that I won a Gold Key for the Boston Globe Scholastic Art Awards and that I actually had the courage to go into Boston and accept my award surrounded by hundreds of strangers. I’m also proud that my piece was hung in Boston for others to look at. lol.

I didn’t achieve taking a good photograph of something that didn’t have a person in it. All of the good work I have done, have been portraits and when I attempted a more landscape shot I wasn’t able to make it a good one.

My future plans with photography is to keep at it and concentrate more on it so that I will be able to continue some aspect of it during college.

I’m not graduation until next year and I plan to take the new photo portfolio class as well as an independent study.
