A cinemagraph is a still photograph in which a minor and repeated motion occurs. I built my cinemagraph by first taking a video of my dad pouring orange juice into a glass. I selected a part of the video that didn’t show a lot of difference in the amount of orange juice was in the glass. After uploading it into photoshop in layers, iI selected the area of the video with the lasso tool that I wanted to continue moving throughout the video. Then i duplicated all of the layers and reversed them to make the illusion more interesting. Finally I was finished with my GIF of never ending orange juice! However, it was difficult to find a part of the video with the least amount of glitches and movement. I wish i was more creative with my idea, but I hope to create more cinemagraphs in the future because I think they are really cool!
I chose to photograph my brother and my dad eating Five Guys for dinner. There was not a specific emotion i was trying to communicate to the viewer. However, I wanted my photos to be simple and not to complicated to understand the meaning of them. I wish that I had photographed more people for these even photos, because I think it would have made them much cooler to look at. I would have had some more people eating or preparing their food. The event would have looked more important even though it was just a dinner by our Christmas tree. One surprise shot I captured was of my brother biting into his burger. Even though it may look planned, it was not. I like that photo much more than I like some of the others.

In this digital photo assignment, we were assigned to take portraits. One of the types of portraits was to take a few regular portraits with little editing in photoshop. The other type was a fictional portrait where we took a regular portait and turned the person into something or someone else using photoshop. We could […]
My most successful image was my limited depth of field image. This was a close up image of a dandelion. It turned out exactly how i wanted it to. The original image was in color, but when i was messing around with it on photoshop, I decided it looked better in black and white. You could see the intricate details on the dandelion that you weren’t able to see with the colors. Also, I made sure that the background was completely blurred so that the clear focus of the photo was the dandelion and it wouldn’t take away from the image.
The image that i might do differently was my pan. It it a picture of my dog running in my yard. I don’t think I was really clear on the idea and concept of shooting a pan when I was taking the picture. If i took this again, I probably would have made the picture a little less bright on photoshop as well as take it at a different time of day so the sun wasn’t so bright. I also should have made the focus more on my dog and make sure he was completely in focus.
