I decided to take a photo of an extra curricular activity.
I wasn’t sure what to take photos of because I don’t do many extra curricular activities. It was a toss up between cooking and using my computer.
I like to cook it relaxes me and I like to try to recipes. When I am at home I like to bake. However, I have taken a lot of photos in the kitchen over this year so I thought I would go with my second option.
I use the computer for a lot of things. I like to read articles, get in contact with friends and family, edit photos and watch programs.
Originally I was going to use my diana camera’s pinhole camera using colour film. I wanted to use the light from the laptop and do a long exposure. I wanted to see the movements I make over the time I use the computer. I recently sent off my film with enough time to get them back but they haven’t arrived. So I am going to do digital versions.
I am really interested in the way people interact with objects around them and I like working with portraits. So I thought this would be a good task for me to do.
My favourite photo is the first one where you can see the movement. The second two are too static and the last two are too washed out. So, I will try to do some more to get my final piece.
I don’t like the photos of the laptop because it’s so distracting. I really like the ones with lots of movement and not my face isn’t completely blurred out.
This is why my final photo is:
