This was exhilarating. For some of the tasks, I knew exactly what to do, but for others, it was a completely different story. I took a lot of extra pictures because I got a better idea for the task while I was trying to find something to take a picture of for another task. I enjoyed the photoblitz and can’t wait to share my pictures!

Picture of start time feat. this blog! (sorry it’s not the most exciting photo)

I ended up taking a lot of pictures, but some of them were just pictures of my cat as he was walking by or my dog laying on the bed. I do have multiple pictures that could work for some tasks, but I will try to choose just one (or you can have some bonus snaps!). I took all of the pictures with a Nikon D3400 camera.

Tasks:

  • A photo that looks better in black and white than it did in color.
  • Take a photo that emphasizes the detail of a human hand
  • Take a picture of an object that is a metaphor for your learning style
  • Get close! Photograph an ordinary object from as close as you can manage.
  • Create a self-portrait, without your face, that identifies you.
  • Make a photo of a scene looking out a window.
  • Take a photo that expresses a human emotion

Results:

Here are all of my final pictures for the tasks! I added little explanations/comments beneath each one.

  • A photo that looks better in black and white than it did in color.

I think this picture looks better in black and white than it did in color because the expression on my dog’s face kind of looks sad or irritated, and the colors go great with it. (He loves me, I swear!) It also kind of reminded me of the ASPCA commercial you see on TV, so I like the way it looks in black and white.

  • Take a photo that emphasizes the detail of a human hand

This is my hand in the picture. I decided to take a picture of my palm to capture all of the creases on my hand. My hand actually looks a little wrinkly (it’s not) from all of the delicate lines on my palm and on my fingers.

  • Take a picture of an object that is a metaphor for your learning style

This pen is on actual notes I took for statistics this semester. I learn best when I write things down. I hear what is being said, I think about it as I write it, and then I see it written (it’s a whole process). It’s the best way I learn, even if it is using almost all of the senses.

  • Get close! Photograph an ordinary object from as close as you can manage.

This zoomed-in picture of a stapler had some competition with a zoomed-in picture of a pencil (I’ll put it in at the end as a bonus). I chose a stapler after the pencil because it was the next ordinary item I saw. I turned the stapler to the side to give a different angle to it than usual.

  • Create a self-portrait, without your face, that identifies you.

This is my self portrait without my face, even though you can still see a little bit of my face behind the camera. There is actually a lot you can get from this picture, even though it looks simple. My guitar is an obvious symbol that I like music and playing the guitar. The mirror is a little dirty (not intentional), but it could represent that I am not the most organized and clean person in the world (who is?). I love to wear vests, but I did not put it on specifically for the picture. I could go on forever with little things, but I’ll just stop there.

  • Make a photo of a scene looking out a window.

This is my dog, looking out his window, making sure that no one is on his territory. He is the protector of the house and will immediately let us know if there are any suspicious characters/vehicles anywhere near the house. This scene happens very often, but I had just a split second to take it before he ran away to play with my dad again. I am happy that the picture turned out clear and not blurry.

  • Take a photo that expresses a human emotion.

This is my dad expressing the human emotion of sadness. I also have another picture of him playing with my dog, but it’s kind of blurry. I was going to just take a picture of the hundreds of pictures hanging up in my house, but there was always a glare. I thought it would be fun to include my dad in this assignment, too.

BONUS PICTURES!

And then finally, the end time! I did not realize that the clock was a couple minutes off until after I took the picture. The picture was taken at 3:49 pm, though.
