BC: The End
FC: Portfolio Project | By Sarah Meeks | I love dogs! | I am a guitar player! | I am on the Frisco Heat track team! | My favorite food is spaghetti! | My favorite movie is Get Smart | My favorite color is purple!
1: Bird's Eye View | Eye Level View | Worm-View | Angled Downward View... My favorite! | My favorite picture of these four choices is the shot at a downward angle. I like this one because the angle enables you to see the words in the dictionary, but it isn't at a straight downward angle like the bird's eye view. The angle seems to add creativity to the picture, but it still enables you to see the beauty of the open dictionary. It also gives an accurate description of how many pages are in the dictionary. This picture is also my favorite for the simple reason that it is the most appealing to the eye. The angle actually makes the page interesting. | A | Section
2: In the picture to the right I used the Av setting. | In the picture to the left I used the Auto setting. | My favorite! | Section B
3: My favorite of these pictures is the one using the Auto setting. I love this photo because the colors are incredibly vivid! The other pictures are also beautiful, but there are subtle changes in the coloring that make them less pretty. The Auto gives the picture a overall gorgeous appeal. It also makes the beautiful, pink roses stand out very well against the vivid green. | In the picture to the left I used the Manual setting. | In the picture below I used the Picture setting.
4: Section C | Achieve | Peace | Smile
5: Independence | Believe | Live Laugh Love
6: Section D
7: This picture is the one including a group of at least four people. I chose this photo out of all the other ones I took because I like the lighting the best, and the dramatic poses make an interesting scene. I also love this photo because it has the amazing yearbook staff in it. It also shows the creativity of the members by their dramatic poses. Not only is this a great picture, but it was also really fun to take. Photos with memories attached are the best kind. | Number 1 | The never-ending yearbook drama... | "A group of at least four people..."
8: is the closest person in the world to me. I also love this picture because the lighting looks really nice. Her eyes and her teeth also stand out well and look really good. I wanted to take a picture of Melissa because she was the first person who popped into my head when I learned about this portion of the project. | #2 | "A head shot of an individual..." | Red heads DO have souls! | This picture of my sister is perfect for the head shot because she is my best friend in the whole world. It makes sense for my picture to be her since Melissa
9: This picture is of one of my best friends named Sarah Kate and I. I took this picture while indoors on a church retreat to Pine Cove. We have been friends since last year, but our parents knew each other since before either of us were born. | #3 | "A photo taken in an indoor setting (using a flash)..." | Friends for life! | It seemed like a great idea to include this photo since the lighting is great, and it actually means something to me. "Friends for life" seemed like a great quote since we are really close and will most likely never separate.
10: For the shot of two people cooperating, I took a picture of Jade showing Brandon how to use the black-and-white setting on a camera. I like this picture because it shows how well the yearbook staff members work together. It also shows that there is always more to learn about our amazing cameras! Besides these facts, the picture is also great because the lighting makes Jade and Brandon look really good. It is also a great picture that could be used as advertisement for yearbook class because they look like they are having fun. | Number | 4 | "A group of two people cooperating..." | Friends find camera features!
11: For my action shot showing emotion, I chose a picture that I took earlier in the year during the volleyball season. I love this picture because the girl shown, named Shay, was very passionate in the shot. After the two teams put the ball back and forth over the net several times, she made a perfect hit that ended that match. I love how her face shows ferocity and passion. It gives you a great picture of how much she loves to play volleyball. | 5 | Number | "A sports or action shot depicting emotion..." | Shay spikes to victory!
12: I chose to use this picture as my shot depicting nature because it looks really good! I was just walking down my street, and I saw this bunny. I love bunnies, and to me, they represent some of the beauty of nature. It seemed like a perfect opportunity to snap a shot of one a my favorite animals in the whole world. I also love how green the grass is in the shot... it seems to scream out, "Welcome to Spring! " | Number | 6 | "An outdoor, nature shot..." | Nature is a delicate masterpiece...
13: I chose to use this picture for the shot depicting strong emotion. I took this picture during a volleyball game earlier this year. I love this picture because it shows how encouraging the volleyball team was. Between every single match, won OR lost, the team got in a huddle to congratulate and encourage each other. It is so inspiring to see how devoted the team is to each and every member. | #9 | Encouragement is the key to victory... | "A sports or action shot depicting emotion..."
14: I like this photo because it shows my sister working hard to complete her Spanish homework. This photo is the picture I chose to represent someone concentrating. It fits the category because my sister is grounded and will only become ungrounded when she gets her grades up. Therefore, she has been concentrating really hard in order to make all As. I can tell that Melissa was really concentrating when this picture was taken by her body language... she puts her head in her hand when she is thinking really hard. | #8 | "A candid shot of someone thinking or concentrating..." | Homework eats sister!
15: Sarah! | I am a 14 year old and red-headed girl. I have always loved dogs and hated wasps. My favorite activities are playing guitar, watching movies, and opening presents. :) This project was the best part of the year so far! | The Author's Note: | I didn't take that picture
