20 Minutes

When I saw that we were doing a Photoblitz assignment I was excited but also kinda scared and confused. I did not know how I was going to take all these pictures in 20 minutes. However, I did get all 7 picture and definitely had to be creative.

The list of the different task I had to do were:

  • Take a photo dominated by a single color
  • A photo that looks better in back and white rather than color
  • Squeaks, honks, laughter etc. Make a photo of noise maker you hear
  • Represent of express something loud
  • Make a creative photo of paired opposites
  • Take an extreme close-up of an easily recognizable, common object
  • Take a picture of an object that is a metaphor for your learning style.

I first started this challenge at my house, thinking I could at least do a couple there before I headed to work on homework at the HCC with my friends. While I was at my house I got of the prompts: Squeaks, honks, laughter etc. Make photo of noise maker you hear and make a creative photo of paired opposites.

While I was about to leave my roommate with about to make dinner and she was banging a pot and wooden spot together and that is when I realized I got use that the the noise make picture.

Then I realized the salt and peper are opposite so I decided that I would take a picture of those for the paired opposite picture!

Next, I headed to the HCC to work on homework and to take the last 5 picture. Once I got up to where I would be doing homework, I started to look around to figure out how I would be taking the last 5 picture. I did end up finding 5 things that would work for the last 5 picture.

I first decided to take a photo dominated by a single color. The HCC has these bright orange seats that I thought wold be perfect for this picture.

Next I was thinking about what I could take a picture of that would express something loud, which is when I got one of my friends to pretend like she was screaming and took a picture of her!

After that I want to take a picture that I thought would look better in black and white. I decided to take a picture of my friend from before and turn it into black and white. It look a lot better than the original, because since there are a lot of colors in the HCC it was nice to just focus on what was in the picture and not all the different colors.

For my second to last picture I want to find an item that I could take a picture of very close up. I ended up landing on my shoe lace. It was kinda hard to focus on the laces but I ended up with a pretty good picture.

For my last picture I had to take a picture of something that represented my learning style. I am very much a visual learner so then I started thinking about what would be a metaphor for that. I ended up landing on a picture of glasses.

I found the project hard a times but also really fun to be able to be so creative!

  1. Hi Emily!
    I completely agree, when I learned about photoblitz I was little confused. It was more fun then I thought it would be, but certainly a lot of creativity goes into it given 1. the randomness of the photos and 2. the time crunch. I think you did a great job! I also like how you took time to write out your thought process.
