Unit 5: photoblitzing

In this assignment I had to take as many pictures as I can of the following in 15 Minutes:

  • Make an ordinary object look more interesting, almost supernatural.
  • Take a photo that makes use of converging lines.
  • Take a photo dominated by a single color
  • Take a photo of something at an unusual angle
  • Take a photo of two things that do not belong together.
  • Take a photo that represents the idea of “openness”
  • Take a photo that expresses a human emotion
  • Take a photo that emphasizes mostly dark tones or mostly light ones.
  • Make a photo that is abstract, that would make someone ask, “Is that a photograph?”
  • Take a photo of an interesting shadow.
  • Take a photo that represents a metaphor for complexity.
  • Take a photo of someone else’s hand (or paw)

However I only got the chance to take images of the following:

  • Take a photo that makes use of converging lines.
  • Take a photo dominated by a single color
  • Take a photo of something at an unusual angle
  • Take a photo of two things that do not belong together.
  • Take a photo that represents the idea of “openness”
  • Take a photo that expresses a human emotion
  • Take a photo of an interesting shadow.

My first photo is of something that shows the current time of when I started, and my last image was to show 15 minutes later after taking as many pictures as possible. Ds106 then instructed me to upload my five best photos to flickr, and tag them “ds106photoblitz”.

This assignment seems to be an enjoyable part of the ds106 units as it involves creating images, and I enjoy taking and making images because even simple stuff can be changed into a something more interesting with a little tweaks and changes. I decided to use my university accommodation because it was very convenient as I could get a lot of the required images within the building.
