For this assignment I wanted to be able to show what part of campus was like on Labor Day. I find it really interesting that people use a space such as the quad for relaxing on their days off of classes. Many people were there hanging out and participating in various activities. In my project I tried to capture the essence of Labor Day for ordinary students and how they spend their time on a nice day on the quad. I did my best to capture this with various shots of people juggling, laying on a hammock, studying and hanging out with their pets.
As I took shots, I also recorded audio. This part made me more nervous as I couldn’t get my recorder to work so I used my phone. It ended up turning out alright, but it was a bit muffled at times. I also realize now that I needed to dissolve my sound when it was louder. After reviewing both the PEWO and PEWS, I would have chosen to include the sound because I think that it made my essay more powerful. I liked how the different activities complemented my story and showed how people were enjoying themselves (for example the music playing in the hammock shot).
