As part of our on location photography course, taught by our amazing teacher, Valerie Simmons, we had to take a portrait of a student enrolled in the Dawson College Electrical Engineering Department. Here is the image I submitted for the assignment.
For our first assignment in location photography this semester we had to do a story about Dawson. I had just recently discover the Peace Garden and decided to photograph my mother as a kind of remembrance / memorial to the victims of the Dawson Shooting of September 13, 2006. On the day we photographed we happened to find the last pink rose of summer, as if in honor of Anastasia De Sousa to whom “Everybody referred to … as the girl who wore pink and was an angel, … ” The first 3 images are the one’s that I edited and retouched for the assignment. The other images were the ones I was considering and that add emotion to the story and give the editor alternative in terms of images used.
