For the final project I would like to work with drama. I enjoy Dave Hill's style of portrait photography because his subjects are both exaggerated characters and humorous narratives. http://www.davehillphoto.com/

For this image I wanted to create a vibrant glow which fades around the silhouettes. I brought in the green hue to complement the already existing yellow of the light. I wanted to achieve a more dramatic still life and still reserve an amount of ambiguity.

I had to crop this image to emphasis the vertical lines. I also busted the curves and levels in order to intensify the blues and salvage the subtle details of the clouds.

This photo I decided to make black and white so that I had more freedom to tweak the contrast. I focused on the dirt and grime on the blades.

I took this photo early morning as one of the spy versions. I wanted the windows to stand out most so I darkened the surrounding wall of the house. The warm interior of the pops against the stark background of black.
