Photo that I have Improved as a Photographer
Dylan_Closeup.JPG
This photo shows that I have improved as a photographer. Before taking Digital Imagery, I didn't know any rules of composition or techniques for portraits. In this photo, I used one of the ten techniques to take stunning portraits and I filled the frame (something rarely done in my photos/portraits of people). The most important thing I have learned as a photographer to date is (though this photo is not a good example) using the Rule of Thirds. It really makes photos much better and more interesting, and I am glad to have learned this rule in photography.

The Masters (David Hockney)
These are two photos I made in the style of David Hockney:

Culture Clash
Sam_Culture_Clash_Small.jpg
In this photo, there are several instances of clashing that represent how different our comfortable lives are from the lives of those in the Bai Xin Zhuang village. The first clash is between the skyscrapers and the village house. We live in a world where we are surrounded with such skyscrapers and the technological advancement they represent. The second main clash is the expensive motorcycle in front of such a poor house. We own such expensive things as represented by the motorcycle, while most people in the village only have things like cheap, old bikes (as shown in photo) for transportation. In addition to the two main clashes, I included the ISB Dragons picture and a view into the "house'". We as students at ISB are much more privileged than those living in the village, and I wanted to show this by including a symbol of ISB. The view into the house shows the contrast between the typical foreigner house and the house of someone in Bai Xin Zhuang.
