Amongst this week of CT101, I was granted the opportunity to create a story by using the panoramic feature on our smartphones in the camera’s preferences. Honestly, at first, I was not too excited about taking and posing for a panoramic picture since I believe panorama, to be a very wide photo that a person would have to increase the size of to analyze who and what is happening the photo. I honestly thought it was an unnecessary feature that I could do without being a part of or experience in my life.
Although, as my professor assigned my class into small groups, my group decided to go outside to take our photo. Once I was outside, I instantly began to develop different ideas that we could do to take a photo and make it look as cool as possible. So much a person who did not care too much about this feature. Am I right?
Anyway, as my group and I was thinking of ideas of where to take the picture and have enough time to run behind the cameraman while posing for the other side of the picture; my group and I were coming up with different concepts of what our photo would be about. We discussed concepts like being the “rebels” or “the outsiders” of the school and came up/borrowed title names like “2 Cool 4 Skool,” “2 lit 2 Quit,” and many more.
Overall, the experience with working with the panoramic feature was much more fun than what I intended it to be and for that, I am so shocked. Maybe for future references, I will use the feature panorama more often to have a new sense of style and appropriation when it comes to photos.
