    Pictures Speak Louder than Words!


    Realistically, I do not have much experience taking photos. I mean, if you count screenshots as me taking photos, I take plenty of photos. I typically use the portrait mode setting if I attempt to take a decent/professional-looking photo with my phone. When looking at the limited photos that I …

    Photography Reflection


    Back in the day I was very into photography; I would usually take pictures of nature and the world around me, and whenever we went to special events like weddings, or graduations, I was always the designated photographer. However, as time went on, I began to associate photography with with …

    photo reflection


    I like taking photos to document what is going on in my life and the things that I am doing. I like being able to look back on memories through pictures. I usually take pictures with other people, like friends or family when we go out or have events. It’s …

    Picture Me This…


    Do I take a lot of photos now? HA. Ask my moms who are CONSTANTLY making fun of me for my over use of Snapchat. As someone who appreciates a good visual, or prefers to see the face of of the person I am talking to, I have a huge …

  5. @PabloMccrimmon



    I take a lot of photos. I think of myself as one of many who have been fortunate enough to live in a time where taking a picture, of anything, is easier than ever before. And not just one. You could max out the storage on your phone taking thousands …

    Moments of Light: My Experience with Photography


    by Thomas Pulsifer

    Photography has always been something I’ve had a passing interest in. The first photos I ever remember taking were done using my Nintendo 3DS camera in 2011. Back then, I’d mainly take photos of my toys, posing them dynamically for fun shots. Nowadays, I typically only partake …

    My Own Experiences With Photography


    Photography has been a big part of my creative process in life for the past five years. When I was in high school it was required we take at least one art class, though we were allowed to chose. I had originally tried to take the fundamental art class but …

    My Photography


    I have never had an eye for photography. My friends are able to take beautiful photos but when I try to take a photo of the exact same thing it turns out wrong. As a result, I do not try to take a lot of “artsy” photos. I normally take …

    An A1 Photographer


    My photography experience has not been alive for that long. Only about three years ago is when I started to really enjoy taking pictures of things. I usually go on to take pictures that bring me some sort of nostalgia. That nostalgia may be linked to memory with my friends …

    Me as a Photographer


    I have never been big into taking pictures of things other than my friends, family, or myself with my friends. I have always been focused on other hobbies which I am assuming kept me from picking up photography. I usually take a lot of pictures when I am with my …

  11. @Egon2688



    I would not consider myself a photographer, but I do take a lot of photos with my phone. I also use Snapchat very often when I share certain pictures with my family and friends. I love capturing memories of my family, events, and new adventures. I do focus on lighting …

    my past photography


    My previous experience with photography is limited. I would call myself an amateur. As of now, my camera roll is dominated with pictures of me with my friends, boyfriend, family, and/or dogs. A lot of my photos also come from snapchat. This is one of the apps I use most …

    Photo Reflection


    After reviewing the photography and visual elements material, I realized that I do take a lot of photos now and I did a lot in the past too. Most of the time it was at some special event I wanted memories of, myself (because I liked an outfit I had …

    Photography: from a personal prospective


    I have been doing photography since seventh grade. I started out with a little AA battery-powered Kodak camera that I got for Christmas. I used that bad boy for every occasion and would often just go outside and take pictures of every living thing around me. I used it for …

    Photography Experience


    As an iPhone user, I oftentimes do feel like a photographer. Especially, with the latest version of the iPhone, the cameras are so nice and clear, that photos that I take come out looking great! However, I would not consider myself a real photographer. I don’t know how to use …

    My Experience With Photography


    Photography is something that I have some formal experience with, but often only use in a very casual way. During my Junior and Senior years at high school, I took photojournalism, so I am familiar with the rule of thirds and how to properly frame a subject. I even had …

    Visuals of Storytelling


    I am not a photographer by any means but I love pictures. I think photos capture memories and moments so perfectly. I take the most pictures with friends and family and of pretty views. Individual pictures, like self-portraits I think have a time and a place: graduation, headshots, maternity, wedding, …

    Photography Experience


    My experience with photography started young. My mother likes to take many picture of what is going on in our life at the time. So I have had my photo taken throughout my whole life. Later in life. my sister decided to make photography her career choice. All throughout her …

    You’re Not as Good as You Think


    Growing up I thought I knew everything there was to know about photography; I was basically convinced I WAS a photographer. My dad purchased a camera for me when I was in 7th or 8th grade. I would just kind of “point and shoot” and be like,” Yep, this is …

    Photo Reflection


    I have absolutely zero experience with photography. This is an exaggeration of course because as we all have smart phones now, or with the existence of apps such as snapchat, taking pictures is something we do quite frequently. I personally do not take many photos, and I never have. It …

    Photographic Inexperience


    In my personal experience with photos, I’ve always seemed to shy away from capturing them and also from wanting to be captured. Now, I still do not take many photos at all, but I don’t care too much if my picture is taken or not. If I were to start …

    My Experience with Photography


    When I think about my past experiences with photography, I think of my sister. Since we were young, my older sister (who is three years older than I am) has been a really talented photographer. However, my own experience with photography is much less advanced.

    When I take photos, they’re …

    VSCO Made Me Think I was a Photographer


    My previous experience with photography is probably pretty typical of other young people growing up in this generation inundated with technology. That being said, my skills and knowledge with photography definitely lean more towards the side of basic proficiency, and principally consist of pictures taken on my phone. Growing up …

    Experience? Non-existent


    Do you know those people who take pictures of everything? Or the ones who have really detailed Snapchat, Instagram, or are photographers? Yeah… that isn’t me. I rarely take a picture. I think most of this comes from my perfectionist nature. I don’t like how my pictures turn out so …

    All About Visuals


    I just recently started trying to develop my skills in photography, coming from doing and enjoying videography mostly. But thus far I have really enjoyed it and it’s incredible how much one can accomplish and provoke from a single photo. This assignment is just the beginning, but here I can …

    Visual Storytelling


    I would say I take a lot of photos of myself (selfies) and things that are worth having a picture of for memories or that are funny. I will take pictures outside if I see something that I think is beautiful for example, the snow, flowers or plants, the sky, …

    Week Four Thoughts


    Although most of my friends growing up were very into photography, with fancy cameras and Tumblr/VSCO pages, I was never very interested in it. I think it is because I have never been confident in myself or the things that I create. I felt that I couldn’t photograph anything main-stream …

    Experience with Photography


    I have always enjoyed cameras and photos. One of the main reasons why I wanted the iPhone 11 was for the camera quality and for portrait mode (and because my iPhone 6 was crashing). Not only do I enjoy taking photos, but I also enjoy looking back at photos from …
