A close up of the naan pizza as the cheese melts in the oven.
Assignment two was difficult at first, because I couldn’t figure out what to shoot. Eventually I realized I was overthinking the assignment. I decided to take pictures of my friend making one of my favorite snacks, Naan Pizza. I decided to order the shots as the process of making the pizza actually occurred. I didn’t talk at all while I was taking pictures, because I wanted my friend’s reactions to be genuine. In doing so, (I feel bad, but) I ended up watching my friend burn herself while reaching inside the oven without an oven mitt and was able to capture it with the sound as well. So you can actually hear a soundbite of my friend saying “OW!” You can listen in and view the whole video here. Getting a variation of photos was probably the most difficult, because I wanted to get wider shots but then i’d have too much empty face – losing focus of what was going on. I chose to take the majority of my shots close up, because I wanted to capture details. However, I was still able to capture a couple wide and tight shots along the way.
For reference, HERE is the link to the video without sound.
