ART 376: Black and White Photography
Silver Print; 6″ x 9″

For this piece, I wanted to take a formal photograph of something clean, structured and “real simple”, which it is at first glance. I hoped to keep the viewer looking around the image–multiple glances–to find details that are a bit off-putting…not quite what you’d expect or want to find at your table.

Homosexuality and Religion - Web Ready

Art 280: Intro. to Photography
Digital Still; 7.5″ x 11″

This piece is based around the idea of Homosexuality and its relationship with religion. The couple photographed is an actual lesbian couple, both of whom study this topic quite extensively. This is also the first time that this couple has been photographed together outside of “selfies and snapchat”. This photograph has encouraged a new series to be submitted to the new Women’s and Gender Studies department’s contest on campus, illustrating the lyrics of “Same Love” by Macklemore.

An experiment I did with blurred motion. I created the streaks of light using a slow shutter speed and moving around with battery powered lightbulbs. Initially, I was going for an effect that resembles lightning coming out of the ground, with added emphasis on the random and equally linear streaks of light.

Description: This image was for a motion project. We had to shoot blurred motion and frozen motion. I thought shooting my teammates on the equestrian team jumping would be a good way to show frozen motion. I like how horses look when they’re jumping, so freezing that motion with my camera was really fun and interesting to see.

I took this image on the beach at South Haven when I was there taking seascape pictures. It was a really windy day and I noticed there were all these ladybugs huddling up on sticks, leaves, grass, and other debris but always on the opposite side of the wind. This particular piece of wood had the most bugs on it and the they were all huddled together reminded me of a kind of little community so I took a picture and this is what I got.

ART 380 – Contemporary Photographic Strategies
Digital Print – 15 x 7.77

For this project, we were asked to photograph an “Everyday Uncanny”. I took this assignment literal, “what do I do everyday?” Well, the answer is running. Therefore, I set up my shoes, my headphones, and my music in a position where they would actually be used (on the road).

Description: This image was discovered because of my boyfriend who wrapped up a straw wrapper and tied it to look like a ring and then held it out to me saying, here’s your ring. I saw it through my lens and thought it would be a good example of shallow depth of field with my “ring” held out as he lay in the background blurry.

Description: This photography is of my friend Sarah. I had her sit on the skeleton of an old bridge frame because I like the old, rusty look of it. The old bridge with the background of the water and trees caught my attention and I wanted to catch the beauty of it even though some people may thing the old bridge is “ugly”.
