One of my most memorable experiences from my Photo One class was our "Buring House" assignment. Before this project, I had never thought about what I would bring with me if my house was starting to burn down. When Mrs. Noack asked us to start brainstorming a list, a few items came right to my head. But only about 4 of them I knew right away. Items like my childhood blanket, phone, computer, and my passport. After that, I couldn't think of anything else important that I would need. Then I walked around my room and house and realized that my baby album is 10 times more important than my laptop. I can always buy a new laptop but I would never be able to get those photos back in my life. Since this assignment, I have moved all of these items into my room. So if someday there is a fire, I can grab the ten most important objects. The Burning House assignment impacted not only my photography skills but it also impacted my life.
The second most memorable experience I had was completing the levitation assignment. This project really made me learn the meaning of perspective because when taking the subject photos, I had to think about how the person was going to look once they were put on the computer. This assignment also expanded my creative side. Although I could get a hundred levitation ideas off the internet I wanted to come up with something on my own. Unlike some of our other assignments, I had to have a completed idea before I started taking photos of my subject. This taught me how to think ahead and make sure I have all of the little details worked out ahead of time. In the end, I was very happy with this assignment and it taught me a lot of great things that I used in future assignments.
Thank you, Mrs. Noack and my Photo One class for a great 5B semester! I am already looking forward to Photo Two!!!
