Assignment 3 – Photo Essay Crittenden


For our third assignment, we had to craft a Photo Essay that formulated a story with not only the images or video we provided, but also with sound that narrated the story we were trying to tell. I tried to create a story from something that may be seen as a very simple task and decided to focus on something common for the average college student.


I titled my project “Passing Time” and focused on a subject that was engrained in a simple hobby, playing video games. My own work was interesting to me because at a glance it seems like all this person is doing was playing video games, but as I began to focus on the concentration the subject had on the task he was doing, as well as the body positioning, the hands, and the eyes, it started to tell a story on its own. The focus the subject had was the focus I see many people have when they are drawn in to a game that they are playing. Playing games is such a common past time, and it is funny to see the concentration people will put into their game (but maybe not always their school work).

    I loved your project Naya! I thought it was a really simple but interesting story choice and you have very nice shots. Your nat sound and overall audio was awesome, especially the video game sound effects. It didn’t have much of a beginning, middle, and end but still flowed nicely. The only thing was that it was a photo essay mostly instead of a video essay! Still great shots, but I don’t think we were allowed to include stills. Overall, though, nice job!
