A friend and I went out adventuring and we ended up at Monkey Rock. As we were going to leave I turned around and just loved what I saw. I setup my tripod and set my camera up to have a long exposure.
This shot was pure faith. I had my roommate stand in the light of the setting sun, turned on the overhead light, and had a lamp shining on her hand. I maxed out my shutter speed, and put my camera on continuous shots. That is how this beauty was created.
Luckily my roommate Darbie was tired of homework and offered to be a model for me. We went to the BYUI stadium and borrowed a soccer ball from a group of guys. I turned up my shutter speed and just let my roommate play around. The editing I did to this photo was cropping and straightening it.
My friend Ryan was kind enough to be my model. I went with him to the skate park and had him skate past me a few times. I slowed my shutter speed and followed him as he went past. This accomplished the background being blurry and him being in focus.
This photobook design is a two page spread that contains six photos. This page is dedicated to photos I took while in France. After looking up examples of photobooks on Pinterest I sketched up a few ideas, and then I went to InDesign. I decided to keep the background white so you could appreciate the contrast of the images to the page. I feel like if I choose a color it would have overpowered the subtle tones on the left, and taken away from the contrast on the right. My title is Past Photos with a subtitle Sights of France so that way you knew what you were looking at. Over all I think this is a nice simple clean design.
Hello, I’m Lauren Wagner and this is my fifth semester here at BYU-Idaho. I am from Las Vegas. This last summer my family and I spent two weeks in Europe, so all of my past photos will be from that trip.
I fell in love with photography the summer before my senior year of high school, and purchased my first DSLR camera using my graduation money. I have never taken a formal photography class, but I have learned a few basic tips on shooting and editing here at school.
