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.
