indeed. com – one job i would be interested in the photography department would be Real Estate Photographer. i think this would be a prefect job because i also would like to start a career in the real estate department and having that job would allow me get contacts and help with it. once i become a real estate agent i can become my own photographer. for this job it doesn’t require but is encouraged: 1 year of photographer, real estate photographer, and US work authorization. what ill need for this job is to know how to take picture with a drone and take  interior/exterior with a DSLR camera.

Experiences: the first story that caught my attention right away was the Architectural Photography. It caught my attention because the building looked so beautiful and mysteries. i love how the photographer can make a simple building look so big and magical. what the article made realized is how important photography is and how it can be used everywhere. when the photographer talked about how her family was in the real estate business it inspired me for the future since i was looking into real estate it inspired me to be my own photographer which can result in saving money and take the pictures how i want them to come cross customers. a simple photo can make a huge difference either it makes someone look more into it or just scroll on. The second story that caught my eye was the Photojournalist. i love how every picture is never the same, different situation, different emotions and its a raw moment rather than posed. this story also made me realized how powerful photography is and how we without realizing it, we can be photojournalist too.

sandy skoglund work is very different and eye catching. i find her work to be interesting but mostly disturbing and weird due to the fact that the main subjects are not normally seen together and the different positions they are in. what i do like about her work is the awareness it can bring, ex: the picture above is titled ” germs are everywhere” which stresses the point of keeping the house and yourself clean. i also like the different colors, that is what caught my attention straight away.

why photography is important to me: the main reason photography is important to me is because it has played a major part in my life, capturing many memories. For example due to photography i am able to see how i was and looked like when i was a baby and a little kid. being able to see that has brought me a sort of comfort because my childhood memories are the only ones i cant recall on my own. My childhood and pictures at the moment can also be a collection of my life and create a storyline to be able to show my future family.

another reason photography can be important is because it can be awareness to many things throughout the world: climate change, in equality, murders, crimes, racism, etc. For example, without photography the Black lives matters would be difficult to spread awareness or show the world what was happening in the USA.



When reading the article ” Why Being a Photographer Is (Probably) the Best Job in the World” i have notice photography truly is a perfect job especially in our current time and the future. the need for photography has and will continue increasing over time, photography is one of the main jobs used in other careers such as in crime scenes, fashion, sports, social media, restaurants etc, its used throughout the world. this also allows for great experience, since there is many different types of photography, you can explore and experience what type of photography is best for you. not only do you find your type of photography but you can also travel the world, create stories and have the opportunity to meet great people. another benefit is being able to work during your own hours, you can choose when or where it would be perfect for your photos.

tintype image is a photograph made by making a positive (opposed to a negative) on a thin sheet of metal. tintype have this old vintage vibe to them.
steps of creating a tintype image:
once I imported the image to pixlr i started changing the color and the tone
i then layered an old vintage background on the photo, messing around with the layer so the details would still be there but you would still be able to see the stuff animal

Clarke’s format was not the best, I was confused on where to go or where my mouse/arrow was at. what i like about this photographer was her photos, i think she had great composition, i love the bright colors in some photos and the neutral tones in others.
