For these multiple exposures, I didn't really have any specific ideas; I just picked two photos from my giant pool of photos and came up with these three. I gave these multiple exposures kind of my own twist, rather than just putting one over the other and reducing the opacity, because I felt as if that was too basic and easy to do for this kind of assignment. I've always loved blending photos together on Photoshop; it's one of my favorite skills to use. Theres always a variety of results that can come from it.

These panoramas are taken in/around Point Park's campus. Although it would have been nice to capture a nature panorama, I worked with what I had and took them in this beautiful city. When this assignment was announced, I immediately thought of Village Park and how nice that would look on a nice day in panoramic view. I decided to put two versions of the Riverwalk in this assignment because it captured two beautiful sides to the area, sunny and rainy. The difference in the photos, like how there is lots of clouds in one but none in the other, was such a nice juxtaposition that I had to include it.
With abstraction, I didn't really feel like there was a certain group of subjects that were to be photographed; it could be of anything as long as you put a certain twist on it or photograph it from a weird angle to make people question what it is. For these photos, I kept the subjects pretty simple but changed the colors to make viewers unsure of what it could be exactly. I even kept the image out of focus on purpose for some of my photos, but these are my three best ones in my opinion.
Ethan, the subject of these portraits, is a junior computer science major at the University of Pittsburgh. I took these photos of him near the Cathedral, which is a Pitt landmark and is most likely the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of Pitt. He is wearing a namecheap shirt, which is a domain name registrar that he uses in his projects. I think that because of these elements, these photos tell a little bit about him just by looking at them.
