Take A Journey Through A Photo Saffari


The last 15 minutes was an interesting one… I was challenged to complete a photo scavenger hunt.  This test could be completed anywhere, but I chose to complete it in my house for reasons which include my laziness. Another reason I chose this location was, because I knew this place the best.  This allowed me to manipulate my surrounding, and get as creative as possible. There were 15 possible options within the 15 minutes, but I chose to try and get creative with all of my options.  I started my journey at 4:45pm on Saturday.  I started out at the top of the list with something dominated by a single color.  I was looking around and saw these fake apples and lemons, and obviously there were more lemons. So I surrounded the green apple with yellow lemons. The amount of yellow greatly outweighed the green. I then moved on to an unusual angle. I tried finding some kind of curved piece of wood, and saw the wine glass holder.  I focused my camera on the glass to blur the wood holder.  Next, I new exactly what I was going to do to make an inanimate object look alive. The silver toy rocks back and forth due to weight distribution. Like the last one, I knew exactly what I was going to do. I had create a picture with a metaphor. I just simply made my dog sit like a human! Finally I had to take a picture in the opening of something and tried to get really artistic on this one. I am most proud of this one.

After finishing at 5:00pm, I forgot to take the picture at the end which explains the 2 added minutes ( :/ ). This experience was a fun one that I thoroughly enjoyed throughout the whole 15 minutes.  I wish I could of done more within the time restraint, but I am happy with the effort I displayed on the ones I completed.  Here is the challenge if you want to try aswell—
