Blog Post #2

The Photo-A-Day project has been going really well. I still am unsure of my own ideas for my photos, though. I totally lack any imagination with some of my photos, almost like writer’s block. I think this happens because we have themes each week, which I like, but it forces me to evaluate what exactly I want to take a picture of. This week’s theme, selfie, was a little more challenging. I tried to present myself in the basic way of a selfie, as well as interpreting things that mean something on a personal level, while still some what implementing myself. For example, I love to read, and while on my camping trip this weekend, my boyfriend was working (white water rafting) and I hiked up a mountain to finish my book. Also something a little quirky, I LOVE Starbucks, I go there everyday, in fact i am here writing this now, but I thought I would take a picture of my daily coffee while a mirror in the background reflected my, but I focused in on the coffee, letting my face blur out.

On the Found Footage project front I am lacking a bit because I haven’t found time to really sit down and figure it out — so mostly my fault. I am actually kind of excited to see what I can create though because a very close friend of mine is a videographer of festivals, so I think I want to use some of his film clips to create some sort of meaning like being surrounded while feeling alone, but I want to make it like a positive message.

I’m going to add one of his youtube videos for my media.
