Okay, so this is a REALLY LATE submission of part one of my Digital Photography
final from last quarter. I've had a rather busy quarter (that just ended so I'm on
Spring Break right now!) and was unable to post this until now. Better late than
never, right? Be watching for more submissions from me over the next week!

Our final project for photography class was to make two advertisements using our own
photos. The first had to be a stand-alone image that presented a product without the aid of text.
The second had to be a photo of a different product that was enhanced with text or a slogan.
We had to use our camera's manual settings and could only do minor edits in Photoshop as well
as color and contrast adjustments. It had to be a photograph, not a photomanipulation, lol.

This is obviously the ad without text. It's for Apple's iPod and the shot itself was
taken in my backyard. I really did stick my earphones into that apple! I wrapped
the end of it with masking tape so that I could protect it somewhat and they still work!
I also physically carved Apple's logo into the side of that granny smith with a box cutter,
it was intense. I had to do the shoot really fast so that the logo didn't turn brown, lol.
I turned on the macro setting so that I could pick up all the detail in the grass, apple,
and ear buds. You have no idea how many times I rearranged the cords to get the look
I wanted, I was acting like a crazy person. It was starting to rain by the end of the shoot
and thankfully I had a lot of good photos. I liked the vertical orientation and the way
the cords balanced the composition, plus the exposure was juuust right in this shot.
I think I used a very light flash on this but the rest is the diffused overcast skylight that day.

Overall, I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Photography isn't my passion and I'm not that
gifted with it, but I'm just happy that I was able to achieve what I had originally set out to do, especially
considering the fact that I don't own a high-end SLR. My little camera does the best it can, lol.

PS: I'm aware that this concept has been executed before. Just search here on deviantART and
you'll find a lot of these photos. What I liked about the idea was that it clearly communicated what
the ad was for without explicitly stating it. I wanted it to be immediately recognizable.

Oh okay. Because the iPhone 7 doesn't have a headphone jack and it can only use wireless earphones.
