On Monday morning I arrived unsure of what I would be doing for the next week; I knew photography would be a part of it but had no idea of the significance that this subject would have. Despite this I showed up prepared for whatever I was going to be doing. I soon settled in, taking in all the new information I was learning. I feel that I have obtained a diverse range of skills whilst working at design room this week that I will be able to continue using, especially in my gcse photography course work at school.
As well as getting my head around using a camera on manual mode, I have just as equally developed a deeper understanding of photoshop. I can now effectively edit images, which I was not completely sure on how to do before and can also prepare them to be used for social medias.
By experimenting with lighting in a studio setting I managed to eliminate shadows and create compelling images that were in focus. This allowed me to see how much tweaking the percentage of a lights brightness or tone could effect an images appearance. During this week I've gained independence by working on individual projects.The main thing that I've enjoyed is being able to spend a lot of time on one subject rather than having a small time limit.Because of this, I've been able to work on subjects in depth. Another thing that I particularly liked was the social media aspect of the company. I got to plan posts for instagram and Facebook which I didn't realize Design Room did before hand. In conclusion I'd like to say thank you and that I have enjoyed working at design room because I've been able do a variety of different tasks that I wouldn't of been able to complete before this week.
