Student Profile: Ahram Cheon

 

When Ahram was assigned to come up with a portable portfolio that could be useful for future job interviews, she started thinking about how to mesh her passions for photography and human resources.

ABOUT MY PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT:

For my project, I asked each model to pose with one of his or her favorite objects. I also asked the models to answer a couple questions and write them down on a piece of paper. I wanted to know what their major was to see if their favorite object had something to do with their major.

MY APPROACH TO THE PROJECT:

I want to get into human resources and I recently have been interested in getting to know my friends and others around me better. As I was thinking about this project, I realized that sometimes, I do not know my friends as much as I want to, even someone as close as my roommate.

I wanted the photos to be personal and unique. One way I did that was by having different backgrounds for every model, instead of having a boring white background (I first started with a white background but that idea was shot down by the constructive criticisms by my photography class). Another way I made it more personal to the model was by having the model’s own words and handwriting on the photo.

WHAT I LEARNED DOING THE PROJECT:

1. Confirmed that forced smiles always look awkward.

2. A major or area of studies does not fully describe what a person is like.

  • When you choose Calvin, you choose Grand Rapids, too. Thankfully, GR is the kind of place you won't mind spending four years, with more new restaurants, shops and events opening all the time!
