The assignment that I am the most proud of is the portraits assignment. I think that during the portraits assignment I learned a lot about how to photograph things that I have been photographing for a long time and change around techniques to make it better. I learned a lot by doing some reading ahead of time to make sure that I would try something new to make myself a better photographer. I think that one reason I am the most proud of this assignment is because it is something that people do so often and that I have done before and that I know I will do in the future and now I know how to improve what I am doing. I think that my favorite technique that I learned from this assignment would be blurring of the subject, the background, or the whole image. I think that that technique gives the photo a different mood and makes it more interesting.
