4 out of 10

Usually a 4 out of 10 is less than failing. Usually 4 out of 10 people own a Movistar phone in Peru. Usually 4 our of 10 is considered something bad...
Well my blogger friends and readers, I tell you that 4 out of 10 has now upgraded. It is no longer looked down on as something to avoid.
I am lucky enough to have 4 out of 10 photos for my portfolio for the Photography Major!
I only can have a portfolio of 10 images that will be looked at for about a minute.
Lately I've been a little worried because the application deadline is on November 30th and I have only done a few photo shoots. But I met with some of the photo professors here at BYU to get to know them a little bit more and then to show them my pieces.
The feedback that I got was fantastic! I was happy to hear that I was "doing a great job" and "controlling my images". But I was also helped with some constructive criticism and some new ideas on how to improve my images. So here are the photos that I have. You've already seen 2 of them.

These photos received the best comments from the professors as to technical build and creativity. So they will be entering into my portfolio for november. Woot!
I think that I'm very lucky to have at least 4 of the 10. Now I only have to get on some new photoshoots!
So here are my new thought out shoots that I am planning.

  • Spontaneous Liquification
  • Milk and Cookies
  • Food Fight Portrait
  • Gluttony
So don't steal these ideas!  I mean it.


  1. Brilliant! May I ask what is on those lips?? that picture is so trippy looking. I LOVE IT! :D

  2. Thank you so much Londi! We put some gold leaf onto the lips of the model. It was actually in sheets but then it naturally cracked. It was crazy cool!
