Week 4 rundown: Photography fun!

This week was probabaly my favorite week of class so far. First of all, my favorite activity was the photoblitz! I took pictures around the newsroom at my internship and it was so fun. I was running around in a hurry, and my co-workers got into the photoblitz as well! It was such a fun little activity. Taking the pictures were easy, but I primarily spent my time editing all the pictures to turn out the way I wanted them too. I edited my photos with Adobe and a cheap App I found on the App store. What I enjoyed was how we had to take the photos in 20 minutes- I think after learning more tips and tricks it was challenging because we always want to take the best picture, but the time limit made it difficult.

Here are my edited photos from the blitz!

I also enjoyed Tweeting this week for the Daily Challenges. Here is what I came up with!

I didn’t focus too heeavily on the daily creates this week unlike last week because I wanted to spend time watching Mad Max and also learning more about photography. When reaseraching and reading the tips, my main focus was learning new angles and trying to get better at making pictures not so “perfect”.

I enjoyed watching the movies for this week, and I really enjoyed doing my 6 stars. I have to say, I liked the prompts for the stars last week better than the ones this week because I didn’t feel very challenged or sparked to be creative. Last week I was really excited because I enjoyed the prompts, however I still enjoyed doing them. I actually thought of some cool new prompts that I might want to share eventually!

Do you think an animated GIF can be considered a story? Why or why not? It would be great to include some 
examples to illustrate your thoughts.

I 100% think that a gif tells a story. It’s literally a visual story lol. Gifs are so unique in the fact that they are short clips, but within those clips they are 100% a visual story. I don’t know how to more further expand, because to me it’s so obviously a story. Here are some gifs that I found that tell a story:
