I decided to do this assignment in my mom’s home office. I was sitting around one day with my mom, sister, and sister’s boyfriend and I was reading the assignment. I knew my sister’s boyfriend would want to help be a subject so I decided to do it right then and there. I felt like this assignment was a great experience. It was fun running around my house trying to figure out which picture and objects would best capture the statement. The photos that worked the best for me were the ones that were not very complex. While I am very competitive and wanted to finish all of the pictures, I do not think they are the best they could be because I was more concerned about how many bullet points I could actually complete, and not as much by the quality of pictures that I shot. Ironically, this was one of the tips. Once you are in the habit of something it is hard to slow down, take a breath, and just snap a really good picture. I think the most inventive picture was the one with my sister holding her iPhone with my DS106 Instagram account up. I think you will agree that it is a very cool and clear picture as well as motivating to my followers of my blog to follow all of my social networks.
I started the time at 11:21 am.
While taking a photo dominated by a single color should be the easiest, I actually struggled with it quite a bit. It was not a good sign because this was the very first prompt, but I did not want a close up picture of a wall, or a table. So instead I filled most of the photo with a color, that of a chalk board, but still gave the image a bit of contrast.
It was a bright sunny day outside but there were few shadows in the interior. I noticed, looking out of the window of my mom’s office, that the cars had interesting shadows. However, as I ran downstairs and out the door, I stubbled upon this image….
With something futuristic, I got a little creative. I decided to take a photo of my sister holding her iPhone looking at my Instagram account. Social networks will continue to be our future whether individuals adapt to them or not.
I think this is an unusual angle. Do you?
When I read a photograph a bright light, being 20 years old in the middle of this ‘cell-phone-attached-to-the-hip’ era, all I could think of is the phone flashlight. However, I decided to add a layer to the photo by including a Navy sweatshirt.
I do not really like feet, so the only person wearing shoes in the room at the time was my sister.
I really like this photo because my dad has always wanted a goat, and he just got this little statue the day before. As soon as I read this prompt I ran downstairs and it was the first thing I thought of.
I think out of all of the photos, this one is probably the worst, and took the longest. Out of my whole house I could not figure out what to do for this one. So again, I decided to use where the chalkboard frames connect.
My mom is very into interior design, so as soon as I read the repeating pattern, I immediately grabbed a pattern book.
I am a huge dog girl, and I think this picture is very cool. I moved the camera perfectly so you can still see Kennedy, but she is blurred and it shows motion.
This photo is very similar to the futuristic photo, however, it is a photo looking through a frame.
If this photo doesn’t make you smile and bring joy to you, I do not know what would.
Is this a photograph? I do not know. You tell me.
I think this one is goofy and does not completely represent the metaphor for complexity, but I’m sure he is thinking very hard!
Most of these pictures were edited with VSCO.
I did this assignment in 11 minutes because I like to compete.
