Self Promo # 2

For my Self Promo # 2, I decided to photograph a group of bracelets that I have from Forever 21. I photographed this in studio with Alien Bee's Lights. I wanted to give the photograph the feeling that it was a gift,  so I used a BIRCHBOX© gift box and ribbon. 

Self Promo #1

I was given an assignment to produce a number of "Self Promos" over the next six weeks. The Self Promos can be anything of my choice, I just have to get it approved by my professor. For my first self promo, I chose to photograph O-L!VE Oil. I produced this image in studio using Alien Bee flashes and fill cards.

Client Assignment #1

Our first Client Assignment was to photograph any kind of vegetable. I went to the local vegetable store and purchased a Spaghetti Squash, a Yellow Pepper and a small onion. I cut into the spaghetti squash and found very quickly that it was a very unattractive vegetable on the inside, so I opted to grill the onion and pepper instead. I love the grill marks that were left on the skin of the vegetables, I feel like they give the photograph an extra something special.

Visual Resume

We had an assignment to create a Visual Resume, we had to do a self portrait, include three portfolio quality photographs, and write a small bio.
