Assignment #4: Depth of Field

My depth of field pictures.

3D Street Art a photo by 'Jamie Lawrence '

As I usually like browsing through different photos and photographers and their works in google or deviantart or even in different other photo sites during my leisure time. This picture right here caught my eye right away, it shows the photographer ' Jamie Lawrence ' having fun with her photography skills with a couple who went to visit the Guinness World Records of 3D  street art ( I kinda forgot where exactly it was since I saved this picture way long back ! ) ... moving on I remember reading that she actually had to take exactly 3 tries to get 'THIS' very shot perfectly on her frames . What I like in this picture is her setup , the timing of her picture, the lighting was on the line , cause she also mentioned that before she was getting this shots taken it was almost getting dark and she had to get the perfect shot! I hope you all enjoy the shot and my upcoming works .

P.S. - Click on the Image to see the actual one, cause the image size is actually quite big !
There were many things that I liked about this image, one main thing that stood out to me was the fact that its Richard Sherman my favorite defensive back making and interception. Another thing that stuck out to me was the way the two players were in focus and the audience was not. In addition I felt that this picture shows the amount of focus you need to have in order to make a big play on the football field.


Last summer I decided to start a bucket list and the first thing I wanted to check off that list was skydiving. It was one of the most unreal moments of my life, an experience hat cannot possibly be explained through words. I can't wait to do more crazy things like it. This photo was taken by the photographer that jumped just before I did. I was attached to the man in the picture (those are my feet).

Image I like

Photo Credit: Myself. I took this photo while in Mexico last year. At the time of the photo a couple fisherman had just reached shore with their boat full of fish. Immediately the birds flocked in hopes to receive the "throwbacks" for a little snack. I like this photo because it captures the beautiful colors on the birds beaks, also it shows great depth of field. Another aspect of the photo I like is the reflections of the birds in the water. This image has a lot of life to it and I think that is what captures and draws me in most about this photo.

Hawaii Picture

I decided to share this picture because it is a gorgeous picture of Hawaii where I will actually be going to school in Fall semester of next year! I am really excited about this so I have been looking at a lot of pictures from there. This one is my favorite because it's the beach right next to my University! :) I really like the way this picture has a view from the sky because it gives it a really cool feel to it.

Photo I like

I like this photo, because, even though its just a woman, some balloons and a wheelchair, the sum of its parts is "hope."

Every time I see this image I smile because it reminds me of the mission's trip I took with my church family awhile back.  It shows that children who don't have really anything can still have fun and laugh when someone is willing to take time out of their day and play with them.

Image That I Like

Photo credit: Damien frost

I like this photo because of the difference of light. The tunnel is brightly lit. The size of the guy on the skateboard pales in comparison to the height the tunnel appears to be. I think the skateboard suggests he is going  somewhere, like a journey, and the tunnel and light in it are supposed to guide him on his path.

The Image I Like

     I like this image because of the statement it makes about America. People are so caught up in their own bullshit that they can't even notice a suffering person right in front of them. But even if they did notice this man, chances are they wouldn't acknowledge his existence anyway. This homeless man represents an inconvenient truth about society that many people do not want to accept or talk about.
     I love how this photo juxtaposes two very different worlds. The oblivious women inside are happy. The weathered man outside looks broken. The "happy" inside looks warm and inviting, which complements the feeling found there. The outside looks cold and bleak, which too complements the feeling it provokes.
