Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So I do think it is very important to include a lot of art vocabulary. I don't think it's important to use some huge or not huge but just use so many art vocabulary words my teacher calls it art talker are speech or something. I guess you could say in there, so that part's it was a little bit overdone, but I do think that when I included the part about the 28 millimeter lens in what it would have done if I were to got lower, it really showed that I kind of had an understanding of wide angle lenses and what it would have meant to get lower and how that would have affected the rest. The image because it kind of show that I have the ability to think a little bit further ahead without having to actually do it. It is really good idea to kind of critique yourself because nobody wants a person who thinks they have all the right answers and doesn't need to grow in any way because that's what you do in colleges. So if you kind of show that you know what could have been better or what could have worked in the future, I think that really would help your chances. I don't think it's the most visually striking. I did like how it kind of talked about the collage aspect of it, because I still think that is true. It does kind of look disconnected, almost as if it was superimposed there, and I think in a way. Obviously, I don't think reflection photography is that unique of a thing, especially with nature photography. I do think it does include ideas about how I noticed things and what vision I may have had, even though I said, I don't have a lot of ideas of what I wanted a photograph, I said. So the reason I included this was they felt a little bit more like an advertisement like not as fine, arty like obviously I think it is a fine art photo, but I think that it kind of has some qualities of like an advertisement. The two important things that I said in this kind of caption was that, um, I was able to claim to, like think on my feet and because I saw these lines shining through the fence that I knew, I had an idea of what I could do with that. So I think that is really important, being able to actually say that you went out and to do a photo shoot. Then something else piqued your interest, or you wanted Thio experiment with and I think again, I think it is important to critique your work because I do like this photo. I still think it's pretty, but it's called I look and I said, We have a mirror upstairs by a window, and every time the shuns sun shines through, these colorful rays are projected Against my bathroom door. I don't really think anything else was that important. While on my trip, I was really focused on taking new and interesting shots of iconic pieces or places to show my way of thinking, responding to my environment and using my film cameras. Definitely my favorite way to get inspired and produce images like these, a lot of people think is hard to get images of well known places without being super cliche. I don't think that was the great, great description of why I enjoy this photo. I think you will impress the way, way more if you go from one medium to the next. Obviously, I know people who did that, but I think it is just more wise to show a little bit wider array of talent for wider array of experience with other mediums because they want to see someone who is well rounded, not just niche to their one field. There are parts of it I think are really cringe E, but I do really like the skills that I showed not only with green screen but with storytelling, I guess, and composition. As I enter the college landscape, I'm excited to collaborate with other students, and I think New York City is the absolute best place to do that. So I do think that is true because it was a vertical shot. I don't think it is as strong as some of my work now, but I really do like the color of it. I don't think I would have included this photo now, but I do like that. I talked about how I was waiting on, was patient with my surroundings when knowing that image would be stronger, because if he had been a little bit off center, I don't think it would have been a strong image. I think I should have again included more information about the photo itself, not about my trip that created the photo. I don't think it's that important that I mentioned I was touring proud or that where I wasn't necessarily in New York City. I just don't think I would have included this again. Obviously, like I said, you don't have to use big art words, but I do think there are words that aren't necessarily art terms but have a lot of riel meaning when talking about, we're talking about how you knew that something was gonna happen or how you wanted something to happen and give it that effect. I could have gone further with that, but I do think that was important. I was thinking about compiling all the photos I took on the trip of iconic places and people, giving them no attention or being distracted by their phones. So I do think I should I don't really think I should have included this, but I do think I should have given it some type of description. Now I think this certainly helped my chances of getting into the school kind of showing that I had a drive to challenge myself as an artist and to take things further with my work. So I think when you show that you have a drive to make meaningful work and spend time on something that it really shows in your work. I don't necessarily think that that ending was entirely needed. I also think it was important when I include that information about how I enjoy multiple exposures in how, using green screen and keying out those colors, he came away of being like that styled I'm familiar with just in a digital landscape with video, which is not really commonly used. Green Screen has its obvious purpose, but I don't think people capitalize on that Maura and pursued that idea further.
