Proposal Final Project

Miguel Flores

Tentative Series Name:

City of Angels Skyline

State Idea:

For this series I want to capture different views of Los Angeles as the day progresses sunrise all the to night time.

How will you execute idea?

I plan to plan out my day ahead of time and strategically drive around Los Angeles and take pictures of some city views.

Why is this topic important to you? What do you want other people to understand? What do you hope this series will accomplish?

I want to focus on this topic because I really want to go explore the downtown LA. Growing up I hardly acutally went to downtown and I really want to take advantage of hte city views. I want to share the beauty of the city with others.

Any special conditions, equipment, or techniques needed?

For this project I am going to take panoramas and some HDR’s. I am going to need a tripod, camera, and wide angle lens for this project.

Output Method and Size:

For the series I want to make a book or print the images on 8×17 or 18×24 paper.

Portrait Research

For this project I wanna have fun completing it. For my formal I really wanna take pictures with a dark background and with some really dramatic lighting. In the formal pictures I really want them to show personality just like I saw with Bryan Canston’s portraits. In my self portrait section I wanna take parody pictures of famous pictures. I think that’ll show my personality because I am a big goof ball. In my environment photos I wanna take a lot of pictures using the app on my phone that controls my camera to show the different day to day things I do everyday. For the creative section I really want to get into sport photography just like Jon Soohoo from the Los Angeles Dodgers. His work has inspired to take photos since I was little.

Ex G

I went too CVS, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, and Powell. The best quality picture was hands down Powell the paper quality was so nice compared to the other stores, it also matched the original file the best. I will most likeky be prinitng at Walmart or Powell. For Walmart I am going to need to bring up my exposure so that my picture is not as dark.
