As a photographer, I do all that I can to imagine the perfect image in time. I try to capture that image through application of design principles and elements. My photograph, Oceanside Wave, uses framing as a design quality to draw the viewer’s eye within the photograph and to keep their attention. My photographic ambition is derived from modern surf photography and oceanic photography. Breath-taking moments are made from great ideas. The ocean, to me, is a sea of ideas waiting to be explored. The physical aspect of this picture is greatly expressed through its contrast of land and sea. As a junior at El Camino High School, I am striving to develop and strengthen my photography skills for my final year as a high school student and beyond. After high school I plan on continuing my education at Point Loma Nazarene. I hope to develop a professional oceanic photographer.
