This week, we had a slideshow and caption assignment.
This assignment asked us to take at least nine high quality photographs and compose a cut line for each of them. The challenge within this project was refraining from stating the obvious.
I can definitely say I can pick up on something now that I didn't before. When taking these pictures, I wasn't too aware of my surroundings. For example, the photo above was taken from the rooftop of Edelman in NYC. Though I know this, I don't know the name of the city it overlooks. Similar pictures have the same problem, which makes me want to pay attention to detail more now than I did before.
I'd love to know how to tie in more creativity to even the simplest of pictures. It's difficult to refrain from stating the obvious, but I know that PR professionals need to be able to step outside of the box when describing things like photos. I know that in many cases, PR professionals are in charge of making captions via social media for pictures. That being said, I'm glad I got to practice this with this assignment.
I'm also glad that I got the chance to show off my NYC pictures! :)
