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!

 

Web Page Mockup

katrinatolman-website1. Description: This project is a made up of three sketches, one wireframe, and one final website design.
2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles): I used Photoshop, and Illustrator for this project. I redid my logo, and changed it several times based on the different pictures I liked for my background on my final webpage design. I was able to make a grid out of squares and change the squares to different colors within the color scheme of my picture to create the look I did. I used several tools within the programs I used to make the look I wanted. I also made an easy navigating page that guides your eyes easily throughout the page.
3. Message: That I am an artist with a free heart and spirit. I love the outdoors and creativity.

4. Audience: Outdoorsy people with a passion for art and  creativity.
5. Top Thing Learned: The process of how to create a website, that it takes preparation and steps and isn’t made without sketches and wireframes first.

6. Title Font Name & Category: Shadows into Light, Category: Decorative
7. Copy Font Name & Category: Playfair Display Italic, Category: Serif
8. Thumbnails of any original, unedited image used in the project:

These photos below are the sketches done in preparation for my wireframe and design of my website. I made each of these to brainstorm different ways I wanted my website to look. The first made a design for the second image, but after creating it, it didn’t grab my attention as I would have hoped, so I recreated a new one, using the first sketch. I did a wire frame of that as well, and designed it for my final project.

This pink and white picture is a wire frame of how my website would look with boxes and brief titles so I could get a better idea of how it should be. With this basic outline, it made things a lot easier to put in my actual images and logo, knowing that things were in alignment.

Bannack Themed Series- Doors

This is a compilation of doors I photographed for a themed series project. The thing I love the most about these photos is just how different each of the doors look, and how unique they are. I added type to three of the doors which I will identify under each picture with the type. It was very fun, and I enjoyed it.

Bannack Ghost Town-Creative

 

This was really fun to be able to capture different creative perspectives in photos. The first is a levitation photo. You take one photo with something or someone in it, and then take another photo without that thing. You are then able to photoshop your person to move them where ever you would like so that it looks like they are floating. The second photo, conceptual, tells a story without even having to use words. The third, of the wood is abstract, the fourth is commercial, showing a product that I am trying to sell with a photo. The fifth is a ghost photo which I captured with a very slow shutter speed. Below each edited big photo is the original.
