Assignment 2 Hilton

img_4337After 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. You can checkout out my assignment without sound without sound on YouTube.

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!

A Ride Across our Farm- PEWO/PEWS Wright

Here is my father preparing the food plot by his deer stand.

For my second assignment, I put together a photo essay during my weekend home in Vienna, Illinois. I decided to make my essay a journey across my family’s farm by our house. The pictures make up a timeline from when I leave our barn, to traveling across the farm seeing food plots, fields and my father working, to once again returning to the barn.

The sound is what makes this video in my opinion, which shows the sound of the Ranger, the sound of the wheels on the gravel, the bugs in the field and the sound of the farm equipment. The goal of my video was to show the beauty of the vast farmland and forest that exist in southern Illinois by showing a small example of my family’s land.

Farm Lake

Farm Lake, where many U of I students go to attend barn dances in the Fall, is filled with beautiful scenery. Not only is it a beautiful place, but there are peacocks running around everywhere!

This week, I had to take a trip to Farm Lake to drop off a check for my barn dance coming up later this week. I had never seen the grounds during the day, so I took the opportunity and dragged my camera along with me on my trek out into the woods. The owner of the farm, Loretta, was in her house with friends playing board games. She gave my friend Caroline and me permission to roam throughout her property, which we took full advantage of.
