So, the story I was going for is the idea of youth and how the smallest things can mean so much to someone because they haven’t experienced it before. I’ve always been into exploring new experiences, and in the case of my little sister, everything is new to her.
I don’t think that my images were top notch or anything, but they were definitely authentic and candid. I never intended to take these photos for this class, actually. They were meant for the sole purpose of memories, and I think this gives them more meaning.
I think the image of Kim eating her Rice Crispies from Halloween is the most aesthetically pleasing photo. The lighting illuminates the subject, and I feel like her actions in this photo definitely express my message about youth and how simple experiences make children so happy.
I think all the photos of my photostory are not individually great. The fact that they’re put together this way makes them a good collective because it shares a common theme, but the pictures individually don’t make sense.
I don’t think I would change anything other than maybe actually editing them myself with photoshop or Lightroom. The realness and authenticity of the photos is my favorite part.
I think I would like to make a series on my teenager sister, Jenny. She mostly just stays in her room all day and is on her phone. I think that would be a funny photo story in comparison to Kimberly’s.
