Hey guys, for this weeks assigned blog topic I am going to share with you why I signed up for media. You may think that media is all about the cool equipment or the awesome trips, but to me it's about working with amazing people, learning new things, and capturing moments of life in a single click.
First of all, in media I get to work with these awesome people. For example, when you do a project each person participates and no one gets left out. Like, for our first quarter project I did camera some of the times, I had to ask the interview questions, and I got to take part of editing the footage at the end. And when it was all done, the final project looked great. I was really happy that I got to with an awesome partner.
Secondly, in life you learn a lot of cool things, but to me I liked learning about cameras a little more than math, social studies, and all that other stuff. For instance, working with cameras takes a lot of responsibility. Let's say if you were in my media class and you left out you equipment, such as cameras, tripods, etc. you wouldn't be able to use them again until a very long time. I'm glad I never left out my equipment. Also, you learn humbleness. When you have something very expensive and cool sitting right in your lap, you think about showing people and that causes people to think you're bragging. So in this class, you learn to be incredibly humble too.
Lastly, when I work a camera it's like I'm capturing little moments of life in one single click. That may sound a little cheesy, but this is a blog. To explain, you can travel all around the world and take a picture of every location and when you get back you can show everyone what's life in other parts of the world. Which a lot people don't get to see. When my class and I went up to Kokee, we all saw different things we don't normally see when were on the ground and not in the mountains. I got to take these incredible pictures of the trees, flowers, and how you would see raindrops falling from leaves.
To conclude, don't just do something because it offers a chance of a lifetime or because you want to work with cool stuff. Do something because you think it's fun, and you think that, that's something you would want to do with your life, not just temporarily,but for most of it.
