With being a sports person, I really wanted to shoot the football game on Saturday because I had some great shot ideas. Unfortunately I had to work the game instead so I had to go to Plan B for Assignment 2 and Assignment 3 which was the ARC. The ARC was actually a really interesting place to shoot because there’s always so much going on and a bunch of different story angles to take.
I went during the day when it wasn’t too crowded with pick up games or exercise classes so I decided to just take a tour of the basement and upper level exercise equipment. My goal was to portray a story of the everyday exerciser. With the various equipment options, it was really easy to capture a variety of pictures.
Other than having my entire project delete after trying to export the first time, my biggest downfall was being too scared of getting in the way. If I wouldn’t have been passive I think I could’ve gotten better shots than I already have. However, towards the end of my shoot I was becoming more assertive and asked people if it was okay to photograph them during their workouts. My goal for the next assignment is to become less scared of interacting with people in order to get what I want. As always, I want to work to get better each and every project.
