Let’s start this post off by talking about my least favorite assignment in class, the infamous Photo Booth project. The photo booth could have gone one of two ways and it ended up going with the ladder. The only positive aspect of the project was being able to be around dogs, but almost everything else went completely wrong and not according to plan. I don’t think I will ever work in a photo booth again (I used to work and take pictures at Legoland).
1.My favorite assignment that we have completed this semester is definitely the Photo book. I have always wanted to author a book, but I am not the most talented or intrinsically motivated writer and this was the perfect fit. I really enjoyed the easy program that we used, Blurb, it made designing the pages and cover simple. The price was a little higher then I had hoped, but I am still very excited to see the outcome and feel my artwork in my hands.
2.The Night photography – in class assignment was a close second to my favorite. I really enjoyed this project because it gave Kaelie and I creative freedom and let us work with tools that you ordinarily wouldn’t use. I enjoy working on my own and I do more often, but more times then not I have a lot more fun collaborating with creatives. my I would have liked to see an assignment forcing us to take night or astro photography on our own because there is definitely a learning curve that you have to fail at a lot before you learn it.
