What I learned from the photo-a-day project is that it takes several shots to get the right shot. I had fun experimenting with different angles with my camera, but realized that taking pictures is a lot harder than it seems. My dad was a photographer for fun, when I was little and he had a dark room to develop his photos, so I have always been interested in photography and capturing those “special” or “right” moments. I learned to keep your subject in the center of your lens, so it was a little different for me to put subjects off to an angle, in the background, or foreground, etc. It was a challenge to portray my subject, different from how I had learned to capture them. I think it was interesting to learn how much you can capture in a photograph and how your audience has so many different interpretations of it.
The idea I have for my project is to bake a cake for my mom, and since Mother’s Day is Sunday I thought this would be a great idea! I would show the steps, it will take for me to back the cake, with my camera such as leaving my house, getting in my car, going to the store for ingredients and then the making of the cake. I don’t really think there is a way to incorporate the work I am doing for the photo slideshare assignment into my final project because my final project is going to be a different topic/subject.
