Project 5 Proposal

Tentative Series Name:

Drawing media

State Idea:

For this series, I want to focus on still lives of drawing utensils and medians

How will you execute idea?

I want to have a very either a still life or environmental style of photography that will mainly use natural lighting.

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 show people how they can be introduced to expressing themselves through drawing and to show, that while it may seem daunting at first, it’s easy to get into and to not be scared to do it. Often times people would view drawings of others and say they want to do that as well, but feel that they are not good enough to do it. I want this series to show that it’s a fun activity that anyone can do and that it can be fun

Any special condition, equipment, or techniques needed?

These images will be very easy to set up but I may need different lighting source, I’ll have to look into this more

Output Method and Size:

The series will most likely be close-up and I am still unsure about print size, however, I do want to compile them into a book

Final Series Proposal

Tentative Series Name:

Imaginary Friends

State Idea: 

I would like to mix photography and digital media to portray the mundane with creativity.

How will you execute idea?

I will take photos of everyday people or places as the base of the photo, but leave enough room for my illustration(s) to be added later. I will then use Photoshop or another digital program to draw on top of the photo by adding silly creatures interacting with the scene.

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

I find myself more as an illustrator than a photographer, I wanted to showcase my skills better, however I know that I cannot overshadow the photos I take for this series with my illustrations. What my goal is to is show that we as artists can mix different media to create a better image. I also hope that this would inspire others to see the creativity in the world, even though it can feel “ordinary.”

Any special conditions, equipment, or techniques needed? 

I may use my tripod or reflectors for certain shots. The main technique is using a program like Photoshop and creating new layers onto the original photo to create an “Imaginary Friend.”

Output Method and Size:

I am most likely going to print on a 8×10.

Series Proposal

Tentative Series Name:Cat Adventure Quest / Paws on Treasure

State Idea: For this series I want to focus on taking pictures of my cat dolls going on adventures in natural environments and finding treasure.

How will you execute idea? I plan on arranging my cat dolls in a still life setting outside. This will be in natural lighting only. I will be putting one object in each photo to depict a treasure.

Significance: The significance of this project is to remind people the joy of making memories by going on adventures. I feel people may forget to take a break in their busy lives. I want this series to remind people of their happy memories or the joy of going on adventures. Overall, I hope this series will momentarily take away a person’s worries and remind them of the joys in life.

Special conditions, equipment, or technique: I might need to use a short desk tripod or a regular tripod.

Output method and Size: I plan on using either 8″x12″ or bigger prints.

Proposal

Tentative Series Name:

Me

State Idea: 

For this series I want to demonstrate the different expressions individual make while swimming the same stroke. 

How will you execute idea?

I’m planning on taking close-up photos of the swimmer to show the intensity of their face while swimming. I’m also planning on taking the photos in natural light. 

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

Swimming was a huge part of my life and I’ve always loved the picture that photographers would take of my team and I while we would swim our events. The reason why I loved the pictures is because of the facial expression that we would make. It shows strength, commitment, and passion to the event you’re swimming. The big idea that I want to portray is that, we all swim the same stroke, but our facial expression is what makes us unique.  

Any special conditions, equipment, or techniques needed? 

Since the picture will be taken in action, I would probably not need anything, besides, maybe, a tripod.

Output Method and Size:

For this series I plan on printing the images 9.5×14. I like the images when it is printed in a big scale, but I don’t want the poster to be too big because I’m also planning on giving them to the individual in case, they would like to have it. So, of course, I’m printing it in photo paper, or poster paper.
