Today marks the full second day of my time here at Greene. I feel simultaneously tired but happy. I am adjusting to dorm life nicely, but sleeping is still an issue I hope to fix as I want to be awake for the big game tomorrow. I love the commoraderie of dorm life, and how everyone is bonding. Each night is capped off with fun conversations between my hallway neighbors and I’m always laughing.
I love how hands-on the Greene team has allowed me to be. I had never used a professional camera before I came here, and I was worried at first. But Mr. Williams was so upbeat and fun and he made a lesson that was technical, engrossing and funny. What’s great about learning about this type of technology is that we get to use it right after. We took pictures all around the campus and it’s been so fun gaining skills and seeing myself grow in terms of what I’m able to capture.
I also learned how to use a camcorder and tripod. The tripod was more confusing than I had originally expected, but it was fun to learn and play around with. I also really loved shooting video and transitioning from a wide shot to a tight shot.
I am already learning a lot during my time here, and I have had my eyes open to factions of news that I had never even considered. I’m excited to dive in even further and collaborate with my team to produce pieces we will all be proud of.
