This week was, for the most part, a lot of fun. I love taking pictures and being creative and this week I got to do just that! First I started out with watching the weekly video to get an idea of what was going to be happening this week. I then looked at the photography tips and gallery of the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. In that post I included what I learned from the tips, what the photographer used at that base, and the photo blitz assignment. I enjoyed the photo blitz assignment because we had a time constraint to complete the seven prompts. I thought it was a lot of fun because we were kind of under pressure to be creative.
I did the Before and After the End assignment, I thought this was a quick assignment. I decided to use an app that had cool filters to show my after picture of the apocalypse. The second assignment I did to complete my stars, was the favorite photo picture which was easy for me. I love sunsets and there was one sunset picture that I had taken that I absolutely love…pictured below. 🙂
Watching the short film and actual movie this week was my least favorite part. I really enjoyed the movie The Road, but I didn’t like La Jetee very much. It just wasn’t my cup of tea. Yes it was educational in a sense that we saw a film that was produced out of still frames and that was it. I left these for last because I was not looking forward to sitting down and watching a movie that I didn’t pick.
The Daily Creates were fun this week! The first one I did was telling someone how much they mean to me, then telling all of you.
My little brother Jesse means so much to me. He is the sweetest little brother anyone could ever ask for. I used to be the youngest, but after 14 years he came along & I can’t put into words how much I love him & how thankful I am for him! #tdc2224 #ds106 pic.twitter.com/BuDqVxjuQM

The second one I did was my mutant self. I decided that if there was going to be a mutant of me, she would have four eyes instead of two.

I really enjoyed the daily creates this week!
Question of the week:
Depending on the GIF, I do think that some of them could be considered a story. As the saying goes “a picture is worth a thousand words,” if a picture is moving for a couple of seconds then it could be worth a million words and we can create our own story with what we think is happening. Like the GIF I posted below, we can tell that they probably haven’t seen each other in awhile and something scary happened to where they thought they were never going to see each other again.
