Reflection

1. Description: For two hours, I redid a project that I did earlier in the semester, but I had more skills now then I did then, so I was able to do a better job. I chose to do my logo project.

2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles): I used Illustrator and indesign for this project. I learned about overlay with how text overlaps onto the shapes, and how to properly place shapes and words with sufficient space.
3. Message: That Katrina company is very simple, but fun and creative.

4. Audience: Home owners who wants art created for them to put on their walls. 
5. Top Thing Learned: I loved being able to learn how to make something such as a logo more simple and easy to understand.

6. Title Font Name & Category: Josefin Slab Light- serif

7. Copy Font Name & Category: none
8. Thumbnails of any original, unedited image used in the project: none

Photobook Evaluation

I thought my photo book turned out really nice. I loved the cover and how the colorful feathers lead your eye to the beginning of the book and make you want to open it. I also like the way the type is shown and the contrast that the two fonts have one with the other throughout the whole thing. Each subject throughout the book has a title which is well placed. I also love how each page is almost completely filled with pictures. The book is made so that people can look at my photography, and by making the pictures so big, people can see that the photography is the most important part.

There are quite a few spreads in my photo book where one picture is lengthened into the next page where a picture is just placed on top of the extended background. I think it looks really good and ties the spread together. It also gives the book a nice theme and flow. There is an obvious color scheme in my photo book, and that is made up of neutral colors. There is definitely splashes of color, but the book carries the same color scheme throughout it’s entirety.

Conceptual Challenge

My three words for this conceptual photo were shells, cold, and drag. The two words I added were mountains and people. I used shot gun shells as the ground that they were riding on, and a cold winter day with my sister being dragged in a sled. I used my first photo to do this, but tweeked it a little bit and added a different angle for the shot gun shells and I put my brother in law on a four wheeler instead of standing. Then I combined these three photos, and used the clone stamp to take out the fence so that the perspective problem wouldn’t be an issue. Over all I think it turned out fun.


Fine Art Print

This is a picture of my dad, our horses and our farm. I love the way we feed our cows with a team of horses and wagon because there aren’t very many people who do that anymore. I changed quite a few things in post production, such as lighting up the mountains, sharpening the horses and my dad and some of they hay; straightening the photo so it was in line with the horizon line. I love the way it turned out and think that it will be a fun gift to give to my dad. https://www.youtube.com/embed/FSSd90HAuqQ

Top 5 Images

These are the top images that I feel I have created this semester. I also picked photos that I would like to have printed larger and hang in my home. As you can see, the majority are of horses which live on our family farm. The sentimental value of having pictures of them in our home is more important to me than some of my other portraits of people that I don’t know. But check them out and see what you think!
