This was my first photo blitz ever; it was actually pretty fun to do! I found myself trying to go for some interesting pictures, so I hope you will enjoy as I take you through this little tale.
It started at 12:43, and I had no clue what I was going to take pictures of. So when I am typically hopeless and lost, I go for a walk. It allows me to gather my thoughts and sift out a bunch of useless ideas.
#1. Forced Perspective – make something small look big or something big look small.
That is until I ran into the world’s smallest fire extinguisher! Either that or I am getting a lot taller. I saw this one and figured this had to go in the blitz. With that all said and done, I was feeling pretty positive about how this photo blitz was going to go. I continued walking out of my dorm and cut to the back of Monroe where I found…
#2. Make an abstract or literal photo that expresses how you feel.
I feel like I am changing all the time. And it is more than just classes, phases of life, or attitude. Either that or I took the picture because I’m changing from sick back to healthy (I still feel pretty terrible ). Anyways, I took this picture and continued down campus, awaiting to see what pictures I could take. I passed Lee Hall and made my way towards Trinkle. It was here where I saw an interesting item, and took…
#3. How do ants see the world? Change your perspective!
You might not be able to tell, but let me explain why this one is important. That green object in the center is a cup, but not just any cup. It is a Krispy Kreme cup! Any ant would go haywire for all that sugary goodness. I figured this would be a perfect spot to get an ant’s perspective on the world. I took a moment to collect myself then I noticed that campus looked really nice today.
#4. Take a landscape photo
Truth be told, I did not know whether it meant landscape as in varied terrain or whether it meant a landscape style photo. Either way, I figured I captured some variety in this picture and it was on the way so I felt really good about this one. Unfortunately, I believe I was running out of time, and there were still three more pictures left! So I began to make my way towards a clearing to grab the next picture.
#5. Change perspective! Look up in the sky and take a photo of what’s going on.
Zilcho! Nothing is happening in the sky! It did get another picture finished, so I hurried back to the nearest building, because I really needed to find a window. This lead me back into my dorm to take yet another picture.
#6. Take a photo of a scene looking out of a window.
Unfortunately, my dorm’s windows are rather terrible and disgusting. The fountain would look much better if I could have gotten into a classroom in Monroe, but I could not. My time was running out and the last photo was not going to happen, but then I saw it! I knew it was my destiny to finish off with a bang (more like a wimper)!
#7. Take a photo of a bird today.
A reflective bird sticker was on a glass in the dorm. I was saved, and managed to get all 7 photos! Now before you get into a tizzy-fit, I looked for an actual bird, but they all seemed to be high up in trees. They weren’t being too cooperative today, but what do you really expect from birds? My alarm began to go off, and that let me know that my twenty minutes were up! Unfortunately, my friends, I must bid you farewell!
Start 12:43 – 1:03
I had fun with this! This was like a scavenger hunt, but it did not suck! More importantly, you were on the clock, which meant you could not be a stickler for getting the perfect picture. I had to make due with what I had around me, and I think it came out pretty darn well. Let me know what you all think as usual!
