The photoessay assignment was awesome! I am starting to really feel comfortable using my camera and handling etc. Editing is still very new and a bit of a struggle, but I still managed to accomplish everything. I was at my apartment last week when my roommate (James) and I discovered a beautiful rainbow right outside. In order to make the essay powerful, I later got a few more stills of the set up for why James would be taking photos of the rainbow later in the photoessay. I also could and should have had more sound bites in order to add effect to James’s solo shots.
This photoessay documents the story of my roommate James and a change of environment radiating a change within James. James is cooped up inside, lonely, questioning and daydreaming of what could be outside. He then peaks through the window and sees a beautiful rainbow. He then goes outside and documents several images of the beauty outside and the nature and the rainbow itself. At first the images outside are behind the metal fence with raindrops which demonstrates James’s breakthrough to the beautiful sites right in front of him.
