1. I feel I am strong in my creativity as a photographer and an artist. I also feel that my strengths are in color as well. Connecting colors and making color choices is something I feel I have always been strong in. Something I need to work on is steeping outside of my comfort zone and trying new techniques in both my photography and my art in general. I tend to do what I am good at and not take risks, which is something I want to change.
2.I think I have definitely grown as a artist this past semester. I have stepped out of myself a little more and pursued new opportunities with my art. I have also made some finite choices in my future and committed my self to a future in the performing as well as the visual arts.
3.I loved taking photos around Seattle for my photo essay. I get to see the city from an artistic POV and I feel that that project produced some wonderful photos. I would love to do more street photography in the future.

I wanted to photograph the city of Seattle from both a cultural point of view as well as from a tourist point of view. Sites like the Seattle Space Needle and Pikes Place Market are iconic locations of the city, and I wanted to mix photos of those sites with photos of little beautiful moments I saw throughout the city. From this experience I learned that by looking at an entire city with an artistic eye I am able to see details that I wouldn't have seen before. Having never been to Seattle previous to this experience, I can positively say that I would love to go back.
