This week was very fast and furious for me. I was dealing with the loss of a family member who is near and dear to my heart. However, I did manage to get all the work done. Not sure I can articulate what I did very well but here’s what happened, as I remember it.
This week was all about visual storytelling. I started by telling you all about my lack of photography experience and all about my faceless family photos. I got a chance to watch the 1939 film the Bride of Frankenstein and write my reflection on their use of cinematography techniques.
Things got a little scary when I had to post a paranormal image. For lack of much imagination I used a photo of a shadow on the wall and told you a story of encountering it at a remote campground.
For the weekly visual assignments I was able to create a food collage by placing images into paint, I took a photo with my phone and move a few things and took it again for a finding differences photo, I created my own farm animals using paint to crop and place animal parts on top of another animal, then I got to really have fun by finding three photos to tell a love story.
Then there was the 20 minute photoblitz. This assignment was actually a lot of fun. I took the pictures with my cell phone and sent them to myself in an email. I then saved them as jpeg images in my picture folder. One of the photos I was required to take was a picture through something to get a picture of something else. I took this picture through my curio cabinet and got a picture of a Hello Kitty pillow on the other side. What was funny about this one was when I was working with posting it to my blog I was flipping this image to ensure it was upright; for this image it kept appearing to be upside down. I finally opened it and realized that due to the glass and mirrors in the curio cabinet, the image came out with a reflection of the pillow at the top. So there was one at top and bottom of the photo.
Okay, bring on week five!
