Got no one to take pictures with… No problem take them with yourselves

The Work Itself

Telling the Story Behind the Story

Why you chose the assignment or the topic, or what the thing you made means to you.

I chose this assignment because I have an iPhone and I was curious if this actually would work. I did not believe this I thought this would not work. This is a really cool technique to take cool and unique pictures and be your own best friend.

What is its context? What is the story it tells? What does it mean to you? to society? to other media?

This tells the story that you can be your own best friend. I think now more than ever more and more people are feeling isolated and alone. And taking picture by yourself can tell this story that you are alone and need a friend. During Covid I miss my friends a lot and missing taking pictures with them. Now I just just take pictures with myself and be my own friend until this is all over! 🙂

Why did you even make it?Think of this part as the part of a DVD that includes the extras- behind the scenes, out takes, director’s commentary.

Okay so I made this because I did not think it was possible I wanted to see if I would look weird or fake. But I think this worked really well and it kind looks really like I have a twin.

Narrating the Process

The first thing I did was find a big area for me to do this which happens to be my front yard. I asked my sister to film me and let me know when to move. I used the PANO feature on the Iphone. I tested it first with just my finger to see where I would need to move and that way I knew where to stand.

If you need help shooting with Pano I have attached this video to help!
