Art and commerce

Out of all the photograpers on the art and commerce page, I would chose Stephen Lewis to shoot my final project. I really like his style of photography because he takes his subject and not only makes them the central figure, but he makes them the only figure. The subject is mostly taking up the whole page and in some cases the subject is so large that it is cut off of the page. I think that this approach is pretty useful when you want the veiwer to be 100% sure of what they should be looking at. I think that this approach is a good to take because it fores the audience to zero in on what you are trying to show them.

Sunshine Day pt. 2

In this photo I wanted to focus a little bit more on the detail of the flower.

Sunshine day

I just happened to be doing work for a different project when I stumbled accros these flowers. I just couldn't resist taking a photo. It was a bright sunny day and they just looked so beautiful in the sunlight.

Book project

For my book project I plan on doing a contrast between two areas in Brooklyn: Crown Heights and Brookyln Heights. I think I'm going to call it either the "Heights in Brooklyn" or "Two different Heights". I want to demonstrate how alot of the Crown Heights area is neglected while the Brooklyn Heights area is always very well kept. The houses and apartments in Brooklyn Heights are beautiful while the houses and apartment buildings in Crown Heights are either rundown or mediocre in comparision. Besides the residential areas in Crown Heights there are things like vacant lots that once had plans to become a church and old buildings that collapsed that are overlooked. There are so many stores in the area that were open at one time and
aren't open anymore. In the Brooklyn Heights area there aren't any areas that look run down or shabby like in crown heights. I just want to show the major differences within the same borough.
