I chose this photo to represent my improvement in photography, because this photo demonstrates some techniques that I have learnt throughout this corse. This photo is an example for framing, because the branches are stretched across, forming a odd shape which frames the lake in the distance. The second technique within this photo is the point of view. This photo was taken near a restaurant in Solana, and the branches were a part of a small bush. Instead of taking the photo from above, I took it from the side and was able to capture the lake through it. The branches which are forming the frame is also in focus which shows the layers in this photo. also, the colour in this photo goes from dark to light from the bottom and it also have a small range of colours. Throughout this course, the most important thing that I have learned as a photographer is the different compositional techniques, which have helped me take better and unique photos. Also, I know my camera much better now and have discovered new features such as 'bulb' which will also help me take better and unique photos.

Culture Clash
hilary_culture_clash_smaller.jpg
Through this photo, there are many elements which shows both the American culture as well as Chinese. The church on the right shows the religious beliefs, and the chinese girl peeking out of the church demonstrates the similarities of the two cultures's beliefs. on top of the church is a star, which is shinning like the star of a christmas tree, also relating back to the different celebrations in the American culture which is also being celebrated in different cultures such as Chinese. Looking deeper into this photo, it shows some culture techniques, such as drying the corn and drying branches which shows some of the chinese techniques. the background of this photo is both American, and Chinese, having the temples softly attach to the road surrounded by greens and blue sky. hiding in the corner and between the legs, are a dog and cat, and these animals are both common in both cultures. dancing on the temple is a ballerina representing the arts in these cultures. in both American and Chinese culture, they both explore world wide varieties of art and music. blending into the background is the sanford university. the famous university is world known and is in America, surrounded by American cultures. however, this international university also has many students who come from different cultures such as the Chinese. lastly the mirror that lays on the road sums up all the elements in this photo and reflects back. this photo is the reflection and representing the culture clash of the American culture, and the Chinese culture.
