Adventure

Image
It was a nice day out and Rebecca was heading to Iceland for a meeting with the main hotel in Reykjavik. She arrived at the airport at 5:30. She had been to this airport before so she knew she had time to get through security. She had her ticket and was past security when she walked the wrong way than where her gate was. She thought that the gate was 37, but it was gate 10. She got onto the plane and still did not know she had gotten on the wrong plane. This plane was heading to the Bahamas. After the plane was already in the air she heard the flight attendant says that the weather will be in the 91 degrees. Rebecca looks out the window and yells " Flight attendant! I need to get off this plane."

Assignment that I am the most proud of

Image
Who Am I 
I am most proud of my Who Am I movie. I might need to take a break from watching it because I have probably watched it over and over a 100 times. I really worked hard on this project because I really wanted to show the message of who I am. I used photos and videos of me sailing to show who I am. I also used descriptions on the images to show how it is important to me. I took selfies of me before sailing and after and used a song that would fit with the images and videos to better display the I movie. This I movie of Who I am gave me an understanding of who I am and how a selfie is not just taken, but it tells a story and with this video though not all of the images were selfies it showed who I am.

Most memorable experiences

One experience that I was amazed by was working in the darkroom to create a photo. I never knew that a picture could come out of using chemicals. Especially because the photos were not taken with a digital camera or a Polaroid. The photos were taken with a pinhole camera which is makes a photo without any magical buttons just light. It was cool learning that a photo could be taken with light. All you needed to do was time how long the pinhole was in the light and then go into the dark room and use chemicals to develop the photo. These skills have impacted my skills with photos to the advancement of a more detailed way of creating photos.




Who Am I 
Skills from making a film were never my strong suit, but now that I have made a movie about my self with selfies and explaining my true self. I understand who I am and how I can explain that through photos and videos. Put together making a movie that will be there anytime I want to watch which is a memory more me. I also learned lots of skil…

Reflecting on my goals for the semester

After revisiting my goals I feel that I have achieved my goals. I have become a better photographer in this semester in Photo 1. I have gotten the skills for taking picture of shapes, food, reflections etc. I also learned that photography is a skill that takes time and in many cases takes planning. My goals were to take better pictures because before this semester I was not skilled, but the biweekly photo projects of taking 60 photos of a topic like food, reflections and shapes made me look at the world in a different way. I now will walk out side and see the perfect picture just walking. I also have learned how to use my phone to take better photos.

Pinhole Photography

Image
Purpose: To understand and demonstrate pinhole photography and how it works; To become familiar with darkroom processes and procedures. The first time I took a pinhole photo I was afraid I would mess the photo up. It ended up that I was pretty good at the timing for how long to have the pinhole in the light. We had tried 15 seconds and the light was good. When it came to the chemicals and the time the photo should be in the chemical for I got lost at first. I learned a lot about how you need to keep the photo in a certain chemical for a time. The more photos we took the better they were. and I think us timing the photo pretty exact and not shaking our hands when holding the pinhole camera made a big difference.
The process was all exciting especially when I got to see what the photo looked like after it went through all the chemicals. The best part was making the photo complete at the end and seeing the results. I also really liked trying different tricks to make the photo a little diff…
