This week was a fun one! I like photography, but am a very novice photographer. I like to do it mostly for myself, and my memories. So it was fun to try new things including taking photos in a new way. First, I followed the tips to make myself a better photographer by David DuChemin. This was my summary on what I came out with It was fun to implement new thought processes on my picture taking, and I want to try and think about these tips more often when taking photos. Next was the photo blitz assignment, which was fun. I think I stressed myself out too much with the idea of being timed, but came out with a result I’m proud of nonetheless. I discuss it further in my reflection below, which also holds my photos I took then. I also did Daily Creates for May 20th, May 21st, and May 22nd. They were all just easy questions to be answered, but were interesting questions that I hadn’t been asked before. For the creative assignments I made Harry Styles swim in our pool, Gave a room tour, Made a butterfly stand out, and gave myself a spubble, which is an odd phrase. I really liked the assignments this week. The hardest part for me was actually writing about what I’d done. Doing the projects was easy and enjoyable, but writing about them for some reason for me was like pulling teeth. But it’s just going to take some time for me to get used to! Learning about visual storytelling is engaging to me. The work of breaking it down into smaller pieces and dissecting them is something I’ve never done before, but is something so important to do. Every part is important, and visual might be the most important. Without visual aspects, storytelling isn’t as efficient.
