    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 …

    My photo journey.


    I’ve always been a fan of photography. I even have a few DSLR and film cameras. I used to take strolls around town or my neighborhood and just snap cool photos of things I saw. Now my photo collection is mainly selfies and pictures of my family. I used to …

    My Experience in Photography


    My experience in photography mainly comes from using my phone. I do have a crop sensor DSLR, but I have not had the inspiration to use it a whole lot.

    I personally love to take photos of the landscape. More specifically, I like taking pictures of the mountains. I love …

    The Visuals of Storytelling


    I always loved photography, but I never had a professional camera other than my iPhone up until my junior year of high school. I decided to take a photojournalism class! I bought my first professional camera which was the Canon EOS Rebel T5i. My teacher Ms. Marshall created the winners …

    Selfies and Cameras: Photo reflection


    I take photos almost everyday. I take quick pictures on snapchat that are usually quick selfies or pictures of my dog that I send to my friends. 

    I also like taking pictures of nature and I have recently gotten into shooting photos on 35 millimeter film. My dad is a …

    Visual Storytelling


    When it comes to capturing a picture, I tend to get lost in the moment and forget to capture an image to remember it by. I find myself looking back on a day and wishing I had captured something to remember it by. Most of my pictures in my phone …

  20. @RMdigitally



    To be quite honest, I have very very little experience with photography. I mean I have an iPhone and use Snapchat on the daily, but I think we all know that that means nothing when considering the artistic side of a camera. My family was late to the technology game, …

    My Life with Photos


    At my house we have a special shelf. This shelf houses hundreds of precious memories with carefully handwritten messages. Some photos dating back to my parents in high school! My mom is a champion scrapbooker. Growing up, she had a room dedicated to the storage of her supplies and photos …

    My Camera and Me


    I honestly am very excited for this week, because my whole life I’ve been known as the kid with the camera. Literally you could always find me with one–from when I was in elementary school playing with my dad’s point and shoot camera, to when I finally got my own …

    Photographs and Y(Our) Story


    This week we are focusing entirely on photography! Photography is something I have very little experience in, however it’s something I’ve always wanted to get better at. Since it’s so easy to take photos nowadays with phones, I take them all the time, but its never been anything I’m particularly …

    Blog #4


    My photography experience is very limited. I’ve never taken a class on it or looked at pointers before this course. I usually take pictures of nature (especially mushrooms) or things that just look cool to me. I really like taking pictures w distorted mirrors. After reading articles I can definitely …

    photography reflection


    I started getting into photography when I was in high school, around the same time I started using social media. I was inspired a lot by famous people’s aesthetically pleasing Instagrams or their blog posts; I really wanted that for myself. I asked for a camera one Christmas and ended …

    Photo Hoarder


    I am a photo hoarder. I take way too many pictures and am always being scolded for how many pictures I take. I don’t pay much mind to the critics as I absolutely love taking photos, both professionally and just civilly. Any opportunity I get I am taking a snap …

    Photo Memories


    I see a lot of my friends who are involved in photography and I have thought about going into photography. The thing about me is that I am not photogenic. So my face looks lopsided whenever I take a picture and I do not like it. So I try not …

    Professional Photographer?


    I was really excited to be able to dive more into photography and visual actives this week. I love taking photo and keeping them for memories. I have over 1000 photos on my phone and I have to go through them constantly to make sure that I am not keep …
