Rancho Buena Vista High school
The title of the piece is Hoop Dreams. The picture was taken at Rancho Buena Vista high school basketball courts. The image meant to be taken with somebody dunking a basketball through the hoop. The picture did not turn out to be as good so I just cropped the hoop by it self. That’s how my image was created. This image is framing. The camera I used was a Nikon D5300 with an 18-140mm lens. The image was created in Adobe Photoshop. The image was highly influenced with basketball. The sport I played over the years has been basketball and basketball only. It is something I been playing every since middle school. Pictures I’d taken as been basketball related and this picture happens to be the best one. I did not have to do much on Adobe Photoshop, I simply turned it to black and white.
