Will Balladares is thrilled with his graduation internship as a User Experience Designer with Engine Digital, an insights-driven, digital agency focused in improving the way organizations reach and connect with consumers across digital channels.
For my photography assignment I was aiming to capture the contrast between happy university students and stressed out university students. I photographed each student in the class while they were working and interacting in the classroom, aiming to capture the most candid moments as possible. I found most success in capturing their stressed out moments, as it is a more recurring state in the lab. I chose these four people mostly because of the quality of the photos that I captured, they were properly focussed and were expressing the appropriate facial expressions for my assignment.
I had to do some adjustment with the lighting and colour balance of these photos to create fluidity between the two shots. I’m quite pleased with how they turned out and that I was able to get some genuine facial expressions from these students. I’d like to thank Zachary Halvorson, Nathan Marshall, Oliver Browne and Stephanie Kalacis for being wonderful models.

Hello folks, Anderson here! This blog post will take you behind my photography project and how it looked like leading up to the final product.
For my photography project, I really wanted to play with illusions and creating something surreal. I’ve always been a fan of unnatural and whimsical photography so with these ideas in mind, the concept of my photography project became the idea of “levitation” – which you can see in the image above. So how exactly am I levitating? Read more to find out!
My great-grandfather Andrew Meyer was a professional photographer in the days when Regina was still known as Pile of Bones. My favorite of his old photographs is of my grandfather carving a pumpkin when he was seven years old. I’ve always appreciated the beauty of his work, but before this project I never realized how much work really went into setting up the perfect, timeless shot.
