After this assignment I have learned a lot on using my camera to tell a story. This assignment required us to to take a sequence of shots with a common theme. I decided to focus my theme on “The Story of Dairy.” I began my sequence on the campus farm with pictures of grass and dairy cows, then I ended the video with pictures of milk and ice cream (products of dairy).
My topic is quite simple, so in order to make my video interesting I had to be creative in taking my pictures. I used a lot of different views and angles and tried add some action to the milk pictures. One of the requirements was to incorporate natural sound, so I added some sound of the cows “mooing” and the pouring of milk. This project forced me to use my equipment in ways I never would have thought of before. Overall I learned a lot from this assignment, and most of all I enjoyed hanging out with the cows!
