For my personal style project, I created a photography lookbook. I designed this project to showcase my photography, writing, and design skills. My lookbook contains photos that I recently took as well as photos I have taken the past few months. I wanted to showcase not only my passion for photography but also my passion for learning about the people I photograph and understanding their stories.

This look book is a resource for me to present future employers on the work I can produce in a short period of time as well as the quality of the process of my photography more so than just the photos themselves.

The Process

Over the past few months, I have learned to try new ways to see and do things. I learned to try new angles, edits, and lighting. I have taken photos of objects, landscape, and people. I used to like taking photos of just landscapes, but I have fallen in love with taking photos of people. And not only taking photos of people but learning about them in the process.

At first, I was a bit overwhelmed by this project and trying to figure out what I wanted to do for it. I came up with the idea to do a lookbook but add a bit of my passion for writing. I contacted some of my close friends and asked them to participate in my project and then I had them reach out to their roommates so I could get to know new people and their stories.

I am grateful for all that I learned over the past few months about photography techniques as well as developing my skills and own style.
