Final Photobook

The end of the semester is finally here and I’m really excited/sad for it all. I was able to finish my photobook and get it printed. I originally wasn’t expecting much out of the finished product, but am really proud and happy at how it turned out digitally and physically. I really enjoyed being able to have some experience printing a collection of my work and having a physical copy of my photos. It was interesting to get my photobook from the printer this time around. There were a few images that printed more red than I had edited them to be, but overall, I’m really happy with how it turned out.

My intent for this photobook was to stay true to my personal branding. In my projects and design work I like to incorporate a more modern, sleek, simple, and elegant look. I chose black and white as the major color scheme so that my photos remained the main focal point of the book.

All of my photos were edited in Photoshop and Lightroom, with the photobook designed in InDesign. Below are the links to my pdf version of my photobook.

First Five

The following are a final draft of my first five pages of my photobook. They include front/back cover, table of contents, professional page, and a spread. I had fun laying out my design and I’m super excited to see how it’ll turn out on print.

Portraiture

This week in photography is one of my favorite aspects of shooting photography: portraits. I love being able to capture people, whether candidly or posed, to tell a story. This week I shot a head shot, side composition, full body, group pictures (posed and candid), and group environmental. I loved the fall colors out in the landscape and tried to use a more muted-color theme in my editing.

Bannack Portraits

This week has been my favorite part of the semester: the Bannack photo expedition. I had the opportunity to go to Bannack, Montana and shoot themed portraits and fine art photography. It was fun to learn more how to direct models, shoot with different types of light set-ups and modifiers, and learn from observing others. Here are the portraits that I edited in Photoshop and Lightroom.
