I used this image glass for my object lighting portfolio. It was shot in the studio with a Nikon D300 & my fellow classmate Scarlet Jovin-Fisher poured the water for me as took the shot. The other camera settings were f/8 @ 400th sec.

The Black & White Assignment

This image was photographed in Wilmington, NC & I used a Nikon D700 with a focal length of 80mm. The other settings were ISO 200, f/2.8 @ 8th of a sec. The model is Erven A. Tomlin

Long Term Portrait Assignment

The Studio Portrait

The Hobbie Portrait

The Community/Illustration Portrait

For this assignment I had to capture a portrait of my model in three different situations. My model was Eddie Cockman of the Asheboro Fire Department.

Creative Montage Assignment

For this assignment we had to randomly select words out of a box to create a photograph. My words were academic, memory, bottle, sunglasses & ring/necklace.
The main picture with Erin daydreaming was photographed at the Randolph Community College library. The memory image was photographed at a friends house. To create the memory bubble I used the marquee tool in Photoshop. or the main image I made the photo black & white then added a layer mask to bring back the color in selected areas.

A Little Piece of Home

Over the Thanksgiving break I was able to go to my home town of Wilmington, NC. While there I decided to do an HDR image of the Cape Fear Bridge which is 1 of the 2 bridges you cross over that will bring you into Wilmington. I wanted to have a good photo of this bridge because I have no intentions of moving back there after graduation. For me this bridge is very symbolic because once I get to that bridge I know I'm home. So I am very grateful I learned how to do an HDR because that process made this picture look so much better than what I imagined.

Chocolate Assignment

For this Assignment we were to photograph chocolate in any form that could be used in a press release. I like the idea of being able to see the inside of the candy & showing the different textures. The candy I used was Snickers, 100Grand, Baby Ruth & 3 Musketeers

For the setup I used the speedotrons as my light source. Nikon D700, ISO of 200, f/11 at 125th
