Siobhán's PhotoVoice

Week 1:

My best photos are my horizontal family member (top left), vertical selfie (top right), and my vertical familiar object (middle left). I really like the horizontal family member, as it really captures my little sister's personality. She's four and extremely goofy. My vertical selfie I liked because of the flash, and the blurred background. For the selfies, I went with the idea of not making my face the focus of the picture. I liked the idea of having the flash on, then the background blurred. My vertical familiar object I liked, because the angle gives it a nice, mellow feel. Also, I thought of the idea of photographing my violin, as I really love playing music.

Week 2:

The top two photos I thought were best. On the left, I have a portrait of Raven and Katie. I thought this was a nice photo, as it really captures their friendship, and the autumn vibes. Also, it's pretty hard to get Katie to smile in photos, so I was glad that I got a picture in which she did. On the right, you can see my snapshot. I liked this, as I was able to capture Katie laughing, Princess posing, Ariana shocked/ laughing, as well as the trees and leaves in the background.

Week 3

These were my two social justice photos. Honestly, they were taken last second and turned out tacky with an unclear message. The first one was supposed to be for LGBTQ+, and I photographed my sister's hands. The second photo is meant to be on immigration. My family immigrated here, so I took a photo of my sister, as she's an immigrant. The text and photo can be really improved.

Week 4

My message for my final photo is anti-littering. I believe this message is important to get out because every day I see the earth decay a little more, as more litter get thrown about. I read on the news how things are just getting worse. Animals are going extinct, and if this continues, so will we. When my audience view my photo, I want them to realize how much this rubbish is contributing to the climate change and pollution, the reason why many species are extinct. I want them to see how this needs to be stopped.

Week 5

For my final photo, I photographed rubbish I saw as I went around in Chicago and Evanston. I tried to capture a raw view of what is really present in our world.

To edit it, I thought it was powerful as is. I placed a filter overtop, to really emphasize the mellowness of the situation. I kept the feet in, as I thought it was a nice symbol of how people just sit back and watch as the planet deceases.

Week 6

Littering is a very important topic that generally just gets ignored. This is important to me because every day I see the earth decay a little more, as more litter gets thrown about. I read on the news how things are just getting worse. Almost half of Americans have admitted to littering, and every year in America alone more than 250 million tons of trash is produced. Animals are going extinct, and if this continues, so will we. I want people to realize how much this rubbish is contributing to climate change and pollution. This needs to be stopped!
