PH 603 - The Language of Photography - Finals

Submit 8-10 photographs which form a consistent body of work. The theme/style/genre of photography are left to you. Plus interview a photographer, someone significant in the field of photography you are interested in or aspire to be a part of, and submit a short paper it.

Some of projects chosen by the students in class
- Color in water - Landscapes and Moods
- Food photography
- Urban decay in industrial Oakland
- Half him, half her - A study on the similarities between people in long term relationships.
- Fashion photography
- A study on trees
- A documentary styled shoot to promote pet adoption from animal shelters.
- Photo montage

I had chosen architecture as the theme for my work. I wasn't particular about structures adhering to specific  architectural style, but instead I went looking for architectural elements with striking visual appeal. Strong composition, balance and rhythm, symmetry form the foundation of the work.
