Two Related Objects Big & Small
I chose my Apple AirPods and a pair of old headphones I had laying around in my closet. The size and quality of the AirPods beats the old headphones in every way. It’s amazing how far technology has come in even the last 5 years.
Me, Myself, and I
I had to really think when coming up with how to execute this photo task. I decided to take a picture of myself in the mirror “holding up” an old picture of me and then photoshop an old image of me under my hand. I look so different now and I think thats a great thing.
While looking around my room for something destructive I came across an old, empty box of self-defense ammunition. Bullets are manufactured to destroy but when your life is in danger, the better word might be “protect”.
How Old Am I?
Jak And Daxter: The Precursor Legacy on PS2 was my childhood in a nutshell. My playstation 2 was my prized possession and all of the Jak And Daxter games were always my favorite. Luckily, I still have that same Playstation 2 and sometimes bust it out to play for a little bit to wind down a bit. This game came out on December 3rd, 2001 so that definitely shows how old I am.
Two Contrasting Things
On the left is one of my black Nike soccer cleats and on the right is one of my white Nike golf shoes. These two shoes have opposite colors yet both display the two sports I love to play recreationally. Kicking around the soccer ball and playing golf whenever I can are two of my favorite hobbies. Both black and white easily go with any outfit so they both make it easy to look stylish out in the grass.
Once Ugly, Now Wholesome
Staple removers can look quite evil but with a few brushstrokes they can look rather harmless. One of the many random objects in my desk, I chose a staple remover because as a kid I was always scared of them and thought they kind of looked like panthers. With a nice smile and some kind eyes, it completely changes from harmful to harmless.
The Great Toy Action Shot
Surprisingly given to me on my 21st birthday, this disc-launching-party-starter is one of my favorite forgotten things in my closet. Discovered under one of my old lacrosse jerseys, this gem has yet again found its way into my hands and now onto the internet where it will stay forever. Truly a masterpiece of an action shot.
The concept of a rapid 20-minute Photoblitz was very fun. Running around my room trying to find everything was interesting and challenging. Using my iPad to edit some photos was also fun to me. I had trouble with finding someone who had an older picture of themselves so I did have to improvise but I think it came out well.
