My Best Friend

I know I’m very late with this post but believe it or not, I was busy working on the essay for this project. But better late than never right?

So for this week, I decided to post another portrait since I believe that those are my favourite kind of pictures to take. Last March break, I went to a photography camp to learn a bit more about my camera and how to use it. This made me look through the pictures I took during that time and I decided to share with you guys my favourite one of them all. I really like this picture because not only does my best friend look fierce, but I also really like the background of the picture. Since the building has a corner, one side of the building is darker than the other because of the reflection of the sun and you can see this on my friends hair as well. The building turns dark at the same place that her hair does which I find lovely. I would however change the fact that we can see the “EOS” icon on her strap since I think it distracts the eye and seems as though I’m promoting it. Another thing I would change, is the fact that she is not exactly in the middle of the picture which bothers me more than it should. Another think I really like about this picture is the clarity of the photo. This is thanks to the sun which hits directly and makes her stand out even more which is perfect with the contrast of her face versus the building in the back.



My sister the model

Another week another blog post… this time I decided to introduce all of you to my beautiful sister. I appreciate her patience with my constant photo shoots, especially when I force her to stand at certain places for me (she still loves me anyways). I really love this picture because I like how the focus of the picture is towards her face which, lets face it, looks like a professional model look. Like Tyra Banks says “smizing” and I believe that’s what she’s doing. The picture quality is also very good by my standards although I don’t like the position of her shoulder. I wish it was moved a little closer to the edge of the photograph because I believe it takes the attention away. I also don’t like the shadow in the sand that we see in the background because it’s out of place. I do however like the fact that because the background is blurry, the towel she’s sitting on blends really well with the sand which is one of my favourite parts about this picture. The reason for that is because it creates a contrast between her and the background which makes her stand out even more.


Well guys I hoped you enjoyed! I’ll be back next week with another blog post. Don’t forget to like, comment and/or share!! Have a happy Valentines Day!




Bringing the beach to you

If you guys are anything like me, you hate the cold as well. The fact that I live in a place where the wind is so cold that it hurts my face is not something I particularly enjoy. That is why I decided to bring the beach to you guys (and also to myself), during these cold winter months. Anytime I walk outside, I like to imagine I’m someplace warm, but it doesn’t seem to work very well…. I also wanted to show you guys this picture because it’s one of my favourite pictures of the beach. This is because because I like the way the rocks curve in the picture which creates a contrast between the darkness of the rocks (like the shadow of the sun) and the light of the sun shinning on the ocean. The only thing I would change about this is the fact that there’s a green kite in the sky that I believe distracts the eye, and this is not where the attention of the viewer should be. I have to say I’m very proud of this picture because the clarity is something I have to improve on and in this picture I think it’s the best part of it since we can see all the little details. We also have a chance to see the gradation of the sky since it was taken in the afternoon.

Well hope you guys like it! Don’t forget to like, comment and/or share!
