Statement: The assignment was to create an everyday still life that either told a story about who you are and your interests and your overlooked everyday habits, or show how specific objects function in our daily lives. I was having a hard time coming up with an idea for the photograph, and then one night I was studying and saw how everything reflected opposite in the cup of water I had sitting on my desk. I decided that I wanted to capture this phenomenon so I went to the dollar store and bought some vases and a red poster board and photographed them. It was all about getting the camera in the perfect spot to capture this photograph.

  1. Great job capturing this phenomenon; the simple red and white background makes it very clear. Related to the project of portraying everyday objects, I thought it was interesting that you removed your subject from an everyday environment.

  2. I love your take on this assignment. from reading the description, I can see that you turned the “writers block” against itself and found your natural habit of being intrigued by weird phenomena in the world. A photo like this can accurately depict how someones brain works, I can relate because I am also fascinated by random things like this too and I’ve never fleshed out an idea like this all the way through to a photograph
