Welcome back to my blog. This blog is about my most recent maker project. The project was called witness to history. In this project we had to become photo journalist and document what covid-19 and physical distancing has affected our community’s. My community is in Deep Cove. I documented how physical distancing and covid-19 has affected Deep Cove and it attraction and businesses. Businesses have adapted it curb side pick up or have closed down and most attraction are closed. The driving question for this project is this how can we, as photojournalists, tell stories of our community during this period of physical distancing?
To answer this driving question I needed to go through some milestones and stepping stones to help me figure out the answer. At the start of this project I interviewed a person that lives in Deep Cove and her name is Fiona. I got info about what she thought about the community and how they have responded to physical distancing. Then I had to figure out what kind of story I wanted to tell in my photo essay. I decided what subject I wanted. Then I made a storyboard figuring out how each photo would help tell my stories of physical distancing.
Now I had to make the final draft of my photo essay so I went down to Deep Cove village and took my photos. I needed to show my story line so took multiple photos of something to make sure I got the best photo possible. After I got all the photos I went home and edited them so they look better. Then I put it all together in book creator and let the photos tell the story then I published it.
Finally the answer to the driving question is I as a photojournalist can tell stories of my community by taking meaningful photos of my community so other people can see how my community has responded to covid-19. Thats the end of this blog. If you would like to read more of my blogs click here.
