Before starting my photo safari I thought it would be easy to come up with picture in the given time, little did I know I was running around my basement like a chicken with its head cut off to scramble to get as many pictures as I could! I picked my basement which is currently where I live because there is multiple different rooms down here including a kitchen, a bathroom, my bedroom, a man cave and a living room so I knew I would have a variety of options! I started the safari at 1:25 and ended at 1:40. After taking all my photos I edited them to try to convey more of the message that was trying to be interpreted. Below I will post my Flikr album that will show all the images I was able to complete within the 15 minutes.

In each of my photos descriptions tells what each picture is supposed to be based on the assignment
This experience was really eye opening because when I normally take pictures I don’t think of things like angles, lights, frames, etc. I was really amazed when looking at my camera roll and seeing how “professional” that group of pictures looked compared to my normal photographs.
I would say the focus on one dominant color and the pattern pictures worked for me best because they were the easiest to find so I had more time to focus it more and think of a better way to take the picture. I will embed these 2 pictures below.
In my kitchen we have a red theme throughout it!
On my living room table we have a purple pattern that I love and it stands out!
Next, the photos I found my inventive was taking a picture into a bright light and making a inanimate object look alive. These I had fun with and they came out so cool!
First taking a picture into a bright light, I accidentally had my flash on and the picture came out looking black in white and that amazed me!!!
The second picture was making a inanimate object look alive and I admit I was stuck at first, I ran around my basement clueless! Then I saw nail polish and a lightbulb went off and I think this picture came out really neat! The nail polish looks alive by it dripping by itself”.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this assignment because I love to take pictures and this gave me a new perspective on how to create pictures I would have never thought about before!
