A summary is worth a 1,000 pictures

 

This week was really tough because I am not a photography guy at all.  That’s part of the reason I took the class though, to challenge myself and try new things in new areas.  You would be hard pressed to say my work this week was anything but rudimentary, but I think I did a good job of finding creative ways of filling in my lack of experience in photography/cinematography with my strong suits to produce overall quality work.

I can say that I’m a lot more comfortable with MS Paint than I was last week, that’s for sure.  Paint is really simple and un-intimidating, but still fairly powerful for what I’m doing.  I think it definitely limited me in my choices for visual assignments, but short of buying and learning a more powerful program, it gets the job done.

In retrospect, I wish I would’ve challenged myself a bit more.  I played it safe for most of these because the material was so far out of my comfort zone, and I regret that.  In particular, I wish I would’ve picked a more exotic location for my photoblitz.  Some of the photos were alright, but I think the assignment would have been much stronger if I’d allotted the time for a run to park for the assignment.  My goal for next week is going to be to push myself to go further out on a limb with the visual stuff, and hope I don’t fall off the branch and hang myself on the way down.
