In regards to our project, my
partner and I chose to explore shadows. This is because we found it to be an
interesting subject because of the way shadows change depending on the time of
day and the type of lighting available. Shadows can be manipulated by natural
factors such as the weather and water and thus, we thought it would be good to use
it as our topic. Although it seemed like a relatively easy task, we had some
problems when it came to finding a variety of different types of shadows.
Originally we had a lot of photos of trees and plants, but we then decided to take some photos around our homes and local areas. We also had to take the photos with our
Iphones since we didn’t have any available cameras, so the quality of the
photos weren’t as good as what they could have been. After enhancing them in
Iphoto, however, we slightly improved the quality. Overall, this task was enjoyable
as we got a chance to work with both Iphoto and Imovie so we learnt how to use
two different programs at once. It also increased our photography skills as we
had to take a variety of photos before we could decide which
ones were the best to use for our essay.
