Cell phone photography in media

   For this assignment, we were required to take on the Wayne State University campus and capture what we considered to be newsworthy. At first, I thought this would be a super easy point and shoot type of thing. I was far from right. I had to go beyond the point and shoot mindset that I had developed when we received this assignment.
   With the first picture that I took for Twitter, I actually felt like a stalker because of the way that I was trailing a student to get a decent picture. After following this student for at least half a block, I found a semi perfect moment where the sun was not as intense. I felt that this picture provided a bit of insight to the conditions that Wayne State University students deal with during the Winter semester.
   The second picture that I took was for Instagram and my favorite. I really like this picture because it screams picture perfect to me. Originally I had taken a picture of this little girl walking hand in hand with her mother, soon after taking that picture, though the little girl ran off to play in a puddle.
   I have learned so much through the hands on experience as well as the tutorials. I have learned that leaving my comfort zone is essential to getting good pictures and that hashtags play an important role when posting my pictures on social media websites

Students brave the cold to get to their classes.
Fun is to be found everywhere.
