Jackson Lake

While leaving the Teton National Park on our way to Yellowstone National Park, I pulled over at a turnout on the northern end of Jackson Lake. I was impressed with the clouds and the lighting that was hitting the mountains and the lake.

One of the lakes at the foot of the Teton Mountains is called Jenny Lake. The lake has a trail the follows the eastern shore. I took several photographs at the south shore and the ones I am sharing are from the northern shore. One was taken up on a small hill and the other was taken down near the water.

Oxbow Bend probably was my favorite place to photograph the Teton Mountains. The last two photographs are exactly the same photograph; however, one is color and the other is mixed using monochrome.

Teton National Park

Teton National Park is probably one of my most favorite national parks. It is stunningly beautiful and the grander of the mountains just blows me away. I spent hours photographing these mountains from different locations. Although I didn’t not document my locations, I hope that I have approximately located these photographs for the turnouts that I took them at.

Elk Ranch Flats Turnout: The fence and the colors were just amazing at his location.

Elk Ranch Flats Turnout: This photograph was taken when it was a little more cloudy. This photograph has so much more meaning to me because of the horses that were roaming the ranch. There were about six horses. My mom inspired the love that I have for horses.

Teton Point Turnout: This was a great photograph that just looked stunning in black and white (a monochome mixture using a red filter).

Willow Flats Overlook: This photograph is taken on a small butte that overlooks Jackson Lake and also the Teton Range. There was a moose about fifty feet away from where I was taking this photograph.

Art 2060 – Flash Assignment

The flash photography assignment had two photographs we had to submit. One had to be a fill flash that was taken during the day or in a location that required the flash but where one would probably not immediately notice that a flash went off. The second photograph for this assignment was a creative flash. The use of strobe lights, flashlights, and laser pointers were allowed. My photographs tend to be more conservative and more “traditional” photographs.

This second photograph was really fun to capture. I went up the Mill Creek Canyon and went up to one of my favorite trails and set the camera up on a tripod and walked down the path and triggered my strobe flash that I had in my hand. The camera was in bulb mode and ended up having about a minute exposure which helped capture the stars, clouds and the natural lights.

Art 2060 – Composition Assignment

My third assignment was to capture the same subject with different compositions. I somewhat struggled with this assignment as I couldn’t determine what would be a substantially different composition. There are many rules that one must consider when composing a photograph such as the rule of thirds, properly framing a subject, the noise and distractions, and just story behind the photograph.

Art 2060 – Shutter Speed Assignment

To balance my heavy engineering and math classes this fall, I decided to take a digital photography class. My class has been lots of fun and probably will end up being one of the most enjoyable classes that I have taken in college. I will be posting a collection of photographs that I have taken for this class.

My first assignment was a shutter speed assignment. Two photographs with different shutter speeds.
