The players confused about the play of the game and is wondering what the call is going to be, Jump Ball or what?

This fresh new snow that was undisturbed over night, now being eaten and played with the next morning.

These four photographs relate to human interest because they show the reactions of a person in an environment. The first one shows that the person was excited about sledding, and how he showed his excitement was through his expression and body language. It shows that no matter how old you are you can still have fun sledding and playing in the snow. That one is a dark photograph to begin with so having his body showing more of his excitement works with this concept, it is blurry but it shows the motion of his excitement.

The second photograph I really like because of the natural and beautiful lighting. It shows him in an environment where he feel comfortable and relaxed. Its a unique composition, but I think it works well because of where I placed him in the frame and what I included within the frame itself. Overall I think that it shows human interest in a unique and timeless way.

The third photograph I find extremely fun because of how unique it is. Even though it is a sports photograph, you hardly ever see something like this in a game. The confused look on their faces and still being able to see the ball is just a great moment captured. I like that for human interest I was able to create a sports photo into something other than an action shot.

The last photograph shows how he feels about snow. It shows his expression of his face and shows the experience he is having. So I feel that these four images related to human interest in some way or another. It could be the the story behind the image that interests people because it describes the experiences or emotions of the person in the photograph.

Over all I think I could have done a lot better, I feel like I was interested in it and there for didn’t take as much time on it that I should have. These are definitely not as strong as I am capable of creating. I also need to work on my captions. I don’t think I put as much effort into those either. I think I need to take more time and focus on my work more, I feel like I’m not interested in this type of photography, but I know I need know how to do it because I never know what I’m going to be asked to photograph in the future.
