This is a picture of my friend Yuri's eye.  I zoomed in more in Lightroom so that you can see me taking the picture of her and that's why I call it self-portrait. And yes those are fake eyelashes on top of her real eyelashes but I really like that you can see both sets. -leslie

This is one of my nocturnal pictures.  I like it because it reminds me of those ghost-like shows or pictures back in the past.  I was just wondering what you guys thought of it. -leslie


From the beginning of this project, I thought about ghostly images for "nocturnal."  My roommate volunteered to be my model, so she put on a light-colored, flowy dress and walked around Eppley.  I had the camera set on a 30 sec. shutter speed, and then I had her take a step and then stop for 5 seconds.  At the end, I had her stop for about 15-20 seconds so that she would show up more at the end.  While these didn't end up looking the way I originally thought they would, I like how you can see through her.  They definitely pull off the ghostly feel, what do you think?

Here is photo that I took recently. I wanted to play with light some more, but this time I wanted to play with light that I could not control, like lights on poles or lights on the road. This is what I came up with. -Katie Ras

Here are some of the pictures I took for specimen. Erin C.

I took this photo when I went to see the massive train engine that came to Sioux City. I had to delete images off my memory card extremely quickly so that I could fit this shot on it! I added a vignette in Lightroom, and I like the darker look of it. I was also trying not to be a creeper taking a photo of this kid since his family was off to the right.....

Backlight Trees

I took this photo in my back yard. I used a flash benind each tree and made sure that each tree was in betwwen the flash and camera. The extra lights are from a gas station further out past the bean field.

This was my light painting photo. I used an LED light, and I did only minor cropping and color altering in Lightroom. It was much trickier than I thought it would be, and getting the streams of light coming from the base of the skates took numerous attempts.

I took this picture the first day that we had class. It was when we walked around and just took picutres of whatever together. I liked how the colors ended up. --Chelsi

another from the photo diary. I had fun experimenting with reflections in my car's side mirror -Emma
I took this somewhere on fourth street during our Photo Diary Project. The texture and colors caught my attention. After taking it, Doug's idea of a postcard popped into my head :) -Emma

I went to Texas this summer and happened to get the opportunity to visit the Padre Islands. This photo was taken at the Padre Islands and we wanted to document our trip and what state we were in at the time, so we wrote Texas in the sand and tried to capture what we saw. I do enjoy this photo mostly because of where the skyline is positioned. Also, I did doctor this up a little bit in lightroom making the colors in the photo more vibrant. -Katie Ras

Blue Chair

This is a photo I took the other night when I was working on the painting with light project. I rally liked this photo, but this is not the original. I went into lightroom and turned it into a blue tint.

Here is a photo I took a couple weekends ago for my cousin, since she was going to homecoming. Her mom wanted a picture of the flower that she received and I really liked how it turned out.

This is a flower that I took a picture of on campus. I did some twicking to it in lightroom, just wondered what everyone thought of it. - Chelsi

This is now a great spot for all of us to be able to post some of our photos from class or from wherever. Hopefully we can get more feedback from one another and get a chance to see more of each other's work.
