Photo Shoot Day

What better way to enjoy the smaller aspects of life then a photo shoot with friends!

Everyone loves pictures, whether it’s taking them or being in them. It’s fun to be goofy, free and yourself. Those photos you take will be a fun reminder of the times with loved ones that you will treasure for years to come. Photos truly are a way to “Live with Abandon” and have a full heart

So in the spirit of adventure and a photography assignment for my journalism class, I decided to have a photo shoot with my boyfriend and best friend. The assignment was simply to shoot a self-portrait of yourself and then a portrait of someone else. We then stripped them of their color in photoshop and refined the images with brightness, color levels, burning and dodging and all kinds of technical terms. 

The results:

I took a lot of pictures and put a lot of effort into them, though in the end I could only pick two. Here are a few more of my favorites in color that didn’t make it into the assignment:

Can you see what a little imagination, a bunch of goofy people and a camera can make of a day?
