Final Finally!

These are the pictures from my final project for my Photography I class at Salt Lake City Community College. My theme was "Fruit of the Earth". I kind of wished I had a macro lense to take some better close ups, but I think the pictures I was able to get with my lense turned out good. These were all scanned from film and I used my Mamiya 645. The first three have some photoshop dodging and burning done to them the last one does not. I didn't include one picture because I just ran out of time to scan it. I actually only scanned two to edit for the final because of some scratches. The photos of the others that I presented for the final critique were done in the dark room. Oh how I will miss the dark room!

Thank you to my friends who have proved to be the best models:

Picture 1: JP's hands and arms
Picture 2: Angelica
Picture 3; JP's feet
Picture 4: Jed and Tanei

Brian was also in some that I didn't use. And thank you to Jen and Rach for being willing to model. Again, I ran out of time to go to multiple shooting locations, so I just stuck with Provo.

I really enjoyed taking this class and I hope to take more in the future. For anyone interested, Pictureline in Salt Lake and Draper offers free basic photography classes. I may be stopping by there myself this fall.
