The Photo Safari Assignment was very interesting to me because it was not something I would ever think to do or come up with as an assignment. I chose to do my Photo Safari in the University Center because I thought it would have the most opportunities for me to find things to photograph because it is so large with so many nooks and cranies. I did a majority of my photography in the Student Activities Office where I was working for the day, which was quite entertaining when the SAE Director came out of his office to see what I was doing.
The experience was fun, but I thought I looked like a mad woman considering I was in such a public space running around taking pictures of very random objects. I’m a very competitive person so I did a lot of the easier pictures on the list in order to maximize the number of pictures I could get in my 15 minutes.
I think the one that speaks the most to me as inventive was my photo that represented joy. It was a photograph of someone clocking out of work from MyTime and while the photograph may not be the best quality it definitely represents joy in my mind.
My favorite photograph that I took of the bunch was of the Chandler Ballroom floor to show a repeating pattern. I like the colors in the photograph (though I hate that carpet) and the angle at which I took the photo. I think if I had taken the photographs for this assignment later in the week they would have been more visually pleasing photos.
