I went to Fedex and CVS for my photo prints. The prints were decent in price ranging from $0.50 – $1.50. However, The fedex print on the top right printed much darker than expected. The CVS printer printed with more clarity and excellent exposure balance in relation to my original image. The CVS print had the overall best quality and color match in regards to my original photo. The paper itself was a thick stock paper with a glossy finish. I plan on going to CVS for commercial prints due to their Kodak machines being readily available, and in numerous locations surrounding my residence. As far as changes to my screen, I may have to adjust the exposure of my image so that it doesn’t print too bright. I will also explore more print shops to experience a variety of printers to best meet my needs.

I would like to take organize and explore still life photographs with attention to shallow depth of field and object creativity. My goal is to create photographic images that show the viewer a different perspective that elevates importance on a given subject. For example, I will use highlight and shadow, product emphasis and my creativity to my advantage. I will also keep in mind to take photos of objects that are relevant to not only my life but those around me. By doing so, I hope to really engage the viewer through visual aesthetics and compositions. My inspiration comes from what the product offers, to allusive references in the past, and even surreal imagery. my still life compositions will consist of some glass bottles, shoes, and products that I own. For the food theme, I will use a shallow depth of field to accentuate the food’s deliciousness.
