Final Questions

1.  My strengths are photographing nature and "candid" moments because I feel like my best pictures were made from those subjects. I think I could work on my creativity and not being afraid to try something new, even though it may seem scary or unrealistic at first.

2. I have grown as a photographer this semester because I feel a lot more comfortable with just going out and taking pictures of a certain subject and I have also learned many things in Photoshop as well.

3. My favorite project was the Photo Essay because I liked being able to go an event and take pictures, because I got to decide how and where I was going to take the photos.
