Without a doubt, being a highly respected photographer would be my dream career. The type of job that wouldn 't feel like a job because it is one of my favorite hobbies. Growing up I always noticed how much longer I took to take a picture of someone than when they did the same for me. I soon realized that I actually had a passion for getting the right shot that I understood that not every pictures the same and that certain angles made others look better in places. The praise I received for taking a lot of these pictures motivated me.
Weather it makes you laugh or cry. Good photography always makes you feel something. As I was running out of other ideas I could find to why photography is important I started asking other classmates and adults I see on a daily bases and what they thought about photographer and how is it of any importance to them. Here are some of the responses I received said “Photography is important because it slows down the pace of life a... ... middle of paper ... ...er, and you will always be able to refresh it in your memory. As well as preserving images and feelings, photography is important because it can also be used simply to create eye-catching art.
Prior to this course, I knew photography was a part of my every day life. After experiencing this course, I know I knew little about photography. Photography is definitely part of my life, but as I reflect on my sixteen-week progression, I realize that everyone can take a picture but “taking a photograph” as an art. My initial thoughts were that with smart phones we are all “photographers” sharing and it has become part of our visual culture, but not all photos deserve appreciation. Although I believed I had an eye for interesting things and liked to shoot pictures from angles or interesting features, I realized that knowing more about the functions and diversity a quality camera could provide was missing.
After learning so much, about so many different cultures, my eyes have been opened up and I care more about the values of others and everything they believe in their cultures. I think it is a benefit to my own career path for me to be cultural competent because it could create new opportunities in my future. By being culturally competent towards all people, I will be more willing and accepting to take on any person’s case brought to me. The more cases I take on; and win, the better I will look in the eyes of my boss and the better chances I will have of moving up the corporate latter in the organization. It is also a benefit in life too, because you can gain many new friends and connections in this world by accepting everyone around you.
Since my spirituality is a huge part of my life, I find being an artist the most rational thing for me to do. I feel like my art gives me purpose in the world. I feel this way because I recognize how this is the way I will contribute to humanity. Even after I have gone, my spirit will live on throw my art. Since I was growing up, I was inspired by the entertainment business.
I have made more friends through this class then I had ever hoped to. The class had such a fun and open atmosphere and it allowed us all to come together as one ensemble. We were all able to pick almost all of the material we would present to the class. This gave each person freedom to choose a piece that meant something to them and that they could express themselves with. I think this creative freedom let us get to know everyone a lot better.
The pressure it gives you to lead the people in the right direction is good pressure that will also help out the leader. Goal Setting, Awareness, Leadership, Reboundability, and Routines are things I have begun to concentrate on and try to incorporate into my every day life. Since I have began to do this it seems life is a lot easier and organized. Learning traits like these is one of the most important things to learn in sports and in life.
Of course we would still hear and read about it, but nothing is better than seeing it. Photography has opened up the world to everyone. What has photography captured? Photography has captured all aspects of life. It has frozen beauty in time.
The photographs are more dramatic and intense when in black and white. Black and white photography is something that I have always found very captivating, I just have not experimented with it much. Because of how Adams’ iconic black and white landscape photographs inspired me, I decided to go out and try to imitate his
I opted for the advertising/public relations route because it was more interesting to me, but mainly because I enjoyed all of the classes that I would be taking with this degree. I have also received good specialized training that will help me in the business world. So overall, I feel that my education at the U of A has been a very positive experience.
