End of Art Reflection

This year I have learned a lot about photography. Like how to compose the shot and use the histogram, and editing photos.

I also learned about making clay tiles, which I had never done before.
My favorite projects were the zentangle and the photography projects. I like the zentangle because they are fun to make the different patterns, and I like the black and white. I liked the photography project because I take a lot of pictures and I like to edit them. My least favorite project was the scratch board, because if you mess up its ruined. I didn't like the Bosquiate either because it was weird.

I thought that art fair was really cool. I saw this one black and white drawing of a musical instrument that was really good! Also some of the paintings were amazing. I had no idea that high school students were so talented. The art fair inspired me to try harder in art.

This project was a combination of picture I took that I think are unique. Most include either an interesting angle, fast shutter, wide aperture, macro photo, extreme edit, or just a good photo. I took most of these at my house or in San Francisco.

I incorporated contrast by changing the contrast levels. I incorporated emphasis with the focus on the subject of the photos, and by changing the aperture levels.

I learned that where ever you take pictures there is always an opportunity for a really good picture, whether you are in San Francisco or my boring backyard.

I am proud of all of the images I have uploaded.

I am the least proud of some of the pictures I had to straighten. If I would have lined them up straight and centered the first time there would be no reason to straighten and crop them.
