The Assignment: Not What I Expected (3 Stars)
HELP!! My phone camera is stuck all the way on zoom and I can’t get it unstuck!!! This was what all my photos look like!! AaAAAAAAaagh!
And NO ALEXA!! I do NOT mean Zoom the video software!!
The assignment asks us to take a photo of something very zoomed in/so close up that object is not recognizable. It is a fairly simple ask, so rather than a tutorial I will give the following tips
- Choose something with variation in color or pattern. I thought about doing a leaf, fibers on my shorts, a tree branch, etc but the overwhelming monochromatic scheme made the object more recognizable (in my opinion).
- If you do not have a tripod, like me, prop your phone/camera up with something to keep it steady. I have shaky hands, and I am taking this class with my beat up iPhone. I had to use several coasters to prop up my phone to keep it still so that the photo did not come out blurry with it being so zoomed in
- Like anything else- be picky!! It took me several different objects and 30ish photos to be satisfied with my assignment
And finally, I am not going to spoil what the object is, but for anyone who wants to see if they are correct.
