For my 3 Picture project I want to capture Mizzou students on summer vacation. The pool at my apartment complex is full everyday with college students and I think it would be fun to shed light on what goes on there. Of course a lot of beer drinking and volleyball games, but the summer also provides a time for students to let go and relax. My goal would be to show what college students are up to when they are not being students. The average person that is not a part of my generation would not know what goes on at the wild college pool parties, so I think it would be interesting.
Some obstacles I might run into would be limited access. Students might not want me to take pictures of them drinking. People also tend to act differently when they are in front of a camera and I want to capture people being themselves. I also hope that there would not be any issues with the Grove and the fact that I would be taking pictures.
However, I don’t think students would be camera shy because we all know how people act after a few beers. I think I could get some really great shots of students having fun, laying out and relaxing. As far as people acting differently in front of the camera, I would just combat that by trying to go for more candid shots. I live at the Grove so they wouldn’t have a problem with me being at the pool but if they had an issue with the camera I will leave and go somewhere else.
I thought this was a cool story idea and well composed. I’m still sitting here scratching my head about how they got that shot of the side of the limo driving down the street.

There was a little spider about 3 inches from this shot. The spider was making its way to the prey caught it caught in its web. Anywho, I wish I could have captured that in this photo but I sill like the shot anyway. The color red and the lighting, combined with the word… Emergency. It’s just eerie. As you can see it was getting dark outside which makes the importance of this emergency button all the more significant. I also like how to focus is more directed toward the button and not the words.
So this photo is a part of my J2150 assignment just like the pervious. I like this photo because it has no obvious explanation. What is on the other side of this mysterious red door? I do not know the answer to that question, and chances are you don’t either. The only way to find out is to man up and open it. You never know, there could just be something wonderful waiting on the other side.
I shot this in downtown Columbia. I wanted to play with the focus a little bit, so I brought the forefront into focus and left the back blurry.
