THE JUNK THAT 8 K-TOWN (View-Master Haiku Series 1, 2 & 3)

My first session taking photos of bush junk near the K-Town train station led to an addiction. I started to see things within images that aroused deeper contemplation. The miniature Eiffel Tower within one landscape seemed to expertly align with a gasping car belly that paid homage to Peter Dam’s The Dogs That 7 Sparrows.

Absent past owners became unconscious artists. Objects in their adopted environments became creatures with lives beyond previous incarnations. I saw things as representations, serendipitous alignments, but more importantly, a culture addicted to accumulating ...


In The Name Of Profit: Canada’S Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Reserve As Economic Development And Colonial Placemaking, Richard M. Hutchings, Marina La Salle 2019 Institute for Critical Heritage and Tourism

In The Name Of Profit: Canada’S Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Reserve As Economic Development And Colonial Placemaking, Richard M. Hutchings, Marina La Salle

Landscapes: the Journal of the International Centre for Landscape and Language

Taking a critical heritage approach to late modern naming and placemaking, we discuss how the power to name reflects the power to control people, their land, their past, and ultimately their future. Our case study is the Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Reserve (MABR), a recently invented place on Vancouver Island, located in southwestern British Columbia, Canada. Through analysis of representations and landscape, we explore MABR as state-sanctioned branding, where a dehumanized nature is packaged for and marketed to wealthy ecotourists. Greenwashed by a feel-good “sustainability” discourse, MABR constitutes colonial placemaking and economic development, representing no break with past practices.

Restorative, Mallory Trecaso 2019 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Restorative, Mallory Trecaso

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design

The series of photographs in Restorative examines intimate views of home interiors that metaphorically embody my physical self. Emergency surgery left me with new marks, scars, and a patchwork of temporary solutions, and a heightened understanding of my own physicality. I use the familiar subject of the home to talk about my body. Looking through the lens of the home as a metaphor gives the viewer a different framework to view, rather confronting one’s self directly. Like a home, a body records time through markings, imperfections, discoloration, and cracks. Some, like a broken window or a scratch, happen suddenly ...


Seeing What Is Not There: The Art And Process Of Infrared Photography, Audrey Dainty, Rion Huffman 2019 Pittsburg State University

Seeing What Is Not There: The Art And Process Of Infrared Photography, Audrey Dainty, Rion Huffman

Posters

Infrared photography is a seldom-explored photographic technique, however there is a wealth of knowledge to be gained in regard to tonality and surrealism when utilizing this technique. The process of capturing infrared images through an infrared lens filter is a more practical, yet still complex, approach to this photography technique. Resulting images lack definition and need refinement through digital editing. This poster will serve the following purposes: 1. Outline the process of capturing images with an infrared sensitive lens filter. 2. Outline the process of editing infrared images in order to properly utilize their tonality and surrealistic properties.


Pixel Size's Effect Upon Photo-Resolution, Levi DeWitt, Rion Huffman 2019 Pittsburg State University

Pixel Size's Effect Upon Photo-Resolution, Levi Dewitt, Rion Huffman

Posters

A common misconception with cameras is that the resolution of the photo—or the surface area of the picture measured in pixels, often referred to as pixel count—is the most important factor determining the picture quality. One of the first things that an aspiring photographer learns when researching cameras are that pixel count is not a highly representative factor in determining the resolving power, or clarity, of a camera. If the pixel count determines the physical dimensions of a picture, how would a professional camera with a 12-megapixel resolution—which yields a photo with a surface area of roughly ...


Refraction And Portraiture, Lindsey Chambers, Rion Huffman 2019 Pittsburg State University

Refraction And Portraiture, Lindsey Chambers, Rion Huffman

Posters

Using a glass ball (known as a crystal ball, lens ball, or refraction ball), one is able to capture a unique perspective in a photo. When light passes through a denser mass, refraction occurs. An inverted image of the scene behind the ball is seen. Refraction balls are most often used in landscape or up-close photography, where the ball creates a similar effect to a fisheye lens. Though, the refraction ball has much more flexibility. The ball can be used within the scene to create an interesting focal point. This project uses a sixty-millimeter refraction ball to showcase people in ...


It Takes A Village: An Exploration Of The Components Needed To Create Professional Themed Fashion, Christina Epler, Rion Huffman 2019 Pittsburg State University

It Takes A Village: An Exploration Of The Components Needed To Create Professional Themed Fashion, Christina Epler, Rion Huffman

Posters

Arguably, there are few examples of imagery in advertising that are more powerful than professional quality fashion portraits. However, creating successful images in this genre is incredibly challenging. Photographers must not only master the crafts of lighting, posing and other techniques in their profession, but they must also master scheduling, time management, communication and interpersonal relationships. The photographer must rely on a team of professionals, from make-up artists to models. This poster will document one undergraduate students’ journey to master these challenges and complete a series of themed fashion portraits for commercial usage. Em­phasis will be placed on documentation ...


The Art Of Creating Photographic Portrait Sketches, Pablo E. Ortiz, Rion Huffman 2019 Pittsburg State University

The Art Of Creating Photographic Portrait Sketches, Pablo E. Ortiz, Rion Huffman

Posters

The art of creating a professional quality photographic por­trait is a skill that an undergraduate student may take their entire educational career to master. On a separate path, an undergraduate may also take their career to master freehand drawing and sketching. When these two creative paths align, the results can be extraordinary. This poster will showcase the journey of one undergraduate student to combine their photographic and artistic portrait skills along with software techniques to create one of a kind photographic portrait sketches. The poster will serve as a best practices guide to the creation of each image.


Bringing Still Photos To Life Using Animation Techniques, Madison Wooldridge, Rion Huffman 2019 Pittsburg State University

Bringing Still Photos To Life Using Animation Techniques, Madison Wooldridge, Rion Huffman

Posters

Cameras are a tool used to capture still images. This project examines a way to bring still images to life without using any video components. By studying basic animation principles, and dissecting photos based on subject, background, and foreground, Adobe Creative Suite will be utilized to bring still photos to life. Through my re­search, I discovered the best software for creating moving photos. This project also finds the best way to photo­graph images, so the dissection of the subject, background, and foreground is seamless and a more streamlined process.

Liquid Motion Capture Techniques For Commercial Photography, Brooke Mock, Rion Huffman

Posters

This project was done in order to learn more about splash photography for product work. The goal was to learn what kinds of ways one can create splashes in a photograph, without having to use to much photoshop manipulation, as well as experimenting with the difference in pouring a liquid and dropping an object into a liquid.


Melding The Mediums: Combining Fine Art, Graphic Design And Product Photography To Create Commercial Images, Natasha Lawrence, Rion Huffman 2019 Pittsburg State University

Melding The Mediums: Combining Fine Art, Graphic Design And Product Photography To Create Commercial Images, Natasha Lawrence, Rion Huffman

Posters

This project grew from a little girl enjoying paint by numbers, to an undergraduate student’s passion for graphic design and photography. The poster will showcase that student’s ability to synthesize information about fine art, graphic design and product photography techniques to create a series of finalized composite images with com­mercial value. The documentation of this academic journey will serve as a roadmap for others to understand the challenges and the overall process to meld these three mediums.


Conveying Emotion Through Lighting On An Expressionless Face, Brittany Lindsay, Rion Huffman 2019 Pittsburg State University

Conveying Emotion Through Lighting On An Expressionless Face, Brittany Lindsay, Rion Huffman

Posters

The purpose of this project was to explore how light affects the overall emotion of a picture when color and facial expressions are removed. Typically, a viewer’s emotion is affected by color and expressions seen on different faces. Each model will have their portrait taken in six different light set-ups. Through those six different photos, I will demonstrate how much light affects a viewer’s interpretation of mood for each picture.


Reworking The White-Masculine Ideal, Steven H. Gonzalez 2019 Southern Methodist University

Reworking The White-Masculine Ideal, Steven H. Gonzalez

Art Theses and Dissertations

This text functions as an exploration of self through artistic practice, a designated space for reflection on contemporary Queer experience. In looking specifically at the permeation of the idealized-white-masculine figure as found within Western visual culture, social media and gay pornography become isolated as sites where these figures are commonly found. This line of inquiry defines how the ideal is reified through these differing digital platforms and the social implications the homogenized male form has on raced individuals. In addition to determining the image of the perfect masculine physique through research, this text expands on how its' imaged representation becomes ...

Images Of Nursing From West Michigan: A Photo Essay, Aldina Mahmutovic 2019 Grand Valley State University

Images Of Nursing From West Michigan: A Photo Essay, Aldina Mahmutovic

Honors Projects

The image of nursing is diverse and complex, with public perceptions influenced by traditional imagery and negative stereotypes. Few recent studies consider how nurses view their professional image. My study aimed to uncover how West Michigan nurses perceive the image of nursing. Approval was given by the local Sigma chapter (Kappa Epsilon at Large), to recruit participants from members, and by Grand Valley's IRB. Via an online REDCap survey, participants submitted an original photo and written narrative. Submissions were searched for underlying patterns using thematic analysis. Themes identified were: (1) nurses establish relationships with unique and vulnerable clients, using ...
