- I can start/continue working on photos for my personal essay/story.
- I know the requirements and how to turn in my personal essay/story.
Telling a story with pictures requires thoughtful reflection and reviewing the essence of your essay/story. Select photographic opportunities which help tell a visual story. Ideally you want your imagery to compliment your story/essay. Be cautious of making the same kind of photograph. This is called redundancy in the profession.
Below are examples of variety of imagery taken of my daughter making mud pies last weekend. Notice how each image provides a different view of her experience and process.
“I found a worm,” Eilish said as she began digging at the edge of the family garden. For many years, since she was five-years-old, Eilish’s mud pies have become a tradition during our spring planting. This year Eilish not only discovered a worm, but also a tree frog. Eilish and I love tree frogs and Eilish had a great time getting to know our little visitor. Having a daughter who loves to garden and get muddy is such a treat for a father. Thanks Eilish for a great afternoon of gardening!
Eilish forms shapes into mud pies after digging a hole and filling it up with water.
“I love the feeling of mud on my hand,” said Eilish. Eilish has been making mud pies from around the age of five when the family started planting a garden.
“Look, he’s hanging out,” said Eilish.
This year Eilish discovered a tree frog. Creatures, such as earth worms, are part of the adventure for Eilish and a favorite part of working the soil.
Much to the displeasure of her mother, Eilish doesn’t hesitate to get muddy head to toe.
Eilish’s masterpiece! A mud pie decorated with a circle of grass and dated. The mud pie will be lifted from the soil and preseved through most of the summer.

Today we will work together in Photoshop and discover the magic of combining your double exposure images into one image!
Below is an example of two images I made of my son, one combining a studio portrait and the other an image of a flower. I see my son as a graceful, sensitive individual who is loving and compassionate. I also love the shape of the flower in relationship to his body and how it gently curves.
