This is the eighth image I wanted to emulate.  The picture is of chocolate chip cookies, which are my favorite.  I liked this image for a few reasons.  One is that they photographed the cookies in such a way that they look so delicious.  I wish I cold eat them.  The second thing is again she uses a white background. I think that really helps the cookies stand out.  The third thing is the reflection.  I think that is really cool element that adds a little bit of depth to the image.  I also like the fact that one of the cookies has a bit taken out of it.  That way it doesn’t look perfect, and the cookies don’t look fake.

This is the seventh image that I chose to emulate.  I chose this image, because it reminds me of the pictures I took in 2003.  My family and I went to Niagara falls for a family vacation.  It was a lot of fun.  See the massive waterfalls, and hearing the loudness of the water.  It was an experience I will never forget.  We also got to go on the boat that takes you super close.  While we were there, there were many rainbows, just like in the picture.  So that’s why I chose this image.  It brings back some good memories.

This is the sixth image that I chose to emulate.  One thing that I rally licked about this image is how clean it looks.  It has even lighting, that shows off all for products.  It has a nice clean white background.  The shapes of the class makeup bottles are round and visually interesting.  I wanted to emulate this picture, one because I need more work on my lighting.  I thought this would be a good test.  I want to try putting it on a light table and see how the object look when their lit from bellow and above.

Gabriella and Susan


It all starts out in a small run down place, on an empty street, on the outskirts of England. Above the door of this small run down place, is a sign that reads “Orphanage”.  The place looks dark like no ones home.  But that assumption would be a mistake.  For inside the orphanage is a cold and dark room.  The room is made of cold brick walls and a cold cement floor.   Within this room you can see eight beds.   In the corner on a little table, is a candle.  It shines a little light, but not much.  Just enough light to see that there are two figures in the room.  Two small figures, of two young girls.

From these lightly lit figures you could see that they both looked very much a like.  They looked like sisters.  Both of them having pretty blond hair.  One girl bigger and is obviously older than the other.  The young girl says, “Gabriella, are we ever going to get adopted?  Doesn’t anyone love us?  Gabriella responds, someday Susan.  Someday soon, you’ll see.  A great family will come and takes us from this place.  They’ll love us don’t worry.  What ever happens, we will have each other.

But this isn’t what their life looks like anymore.  Their dreams of being adopted finally came true.  About a month ago they were adopted by a great family. A family who has enough money to provide for all of their needs.  Who cares and loves them.

One particular day that stands out in the girls’ minds is the first Easter with their new family.  It was the first holiday they got to share with their new parents. It was along day, but it was a great day.  First the girls got to go shopping with their new mom.  They went shopping for their Easter dresses. This was an exciting event for them because neither of them have gone shopping before.  They were excited they got to help pick out their very own dress.

Later that that day they went to church for an Easter service.  When the family got there, everyone wanted to meet Gabriella and Susan.  They all thought they were truly adorable.  Gabriella and Susan were amaized by this kind of attention, and thought they could get used to it.  They had never gotten so much attention before.

At the end of the evening there was a photographer who was taking family portraits.  The parents wanted a picture of their two, new, beautiful daughters.   This was another new activity to them.  They got in front of the camera, after a long day.  They were a little nervous but, still thought it was fun.

All in all this was one of the best days of their life.  They got the family they always wished for.  They were loved and safe.  But, most importantly they were still together.

There are all sorts of ways to exprees yourself.  Through the way you dress, are the music you listen to.  The people you hang out with.  Those are all great ways for people to learn alittle about the person that you are.  But there is also another way.  People can also learn something about you from the the type of purse you wear.  Weither its a couch bag, or disney purse, or a homemade purse.  Its a way the let your pursonality shine.  Here are some purses that people have made to do just.  To express their personalities.  Some of them are also just really fun.

This is the fourth image that I decided to emulate.  When I was looking at all of Dana’s photographs, this is one that really caught my attention.  When I saw the five plates, I automatically thought of my mom’s collection.  Every where my mom has traveled she like to collect something that reminds her of her trip.  For example she likes to collect ornaments.  The other thing she likes to collect, are these plates.  This is something that you can’t really find anymore.  So her collection is that much more awesome, because its something that people can’t really get anymore.  I really like her collection and when I was little I liked to look at them.  So when I saw Dana’s photo, I knew I had to use these plates.  I haven’t been to all of these places, but I would sure love to some time in the future.  So I thought this was a fun image to emulate.  It brought back some good memories.

The third image that I chose to emulate is of a pair of sunglasses.  This one looked like an ad you would find in a magazine.  It has clean lines.  Great even lighting.  The placement of the glasses and fabric it sat on really gave it an elegant quality.  So I chose this particular image, one because of the way it looks.  Secondly I chose it because its one that I wanted the chance to creat it.  I wanted to try my version of it.
