How I got into Film
I have always been interested in the creativity aspect of photography and film. Actually right after my grade 9 trip to Bhutan, I decided to make a short video about what the experience is like. My video was not great, it was my first ever video I have ever created using Adobe Premiere Pro and to be fair, I did not really focus on getting any footage during the trip. Two years later, I am now a HL film student because after discovering Adobe Premiere Pro, I actually really got interested in film. At the same time, I have a few friends who are really interested films which got me into it too.
How I got into Photography
Due to the fact I am interested in Film, I decided to try photography not only for my CAS requirement but also just to experiment with a new hobby. I have not actually started just yet because my “Changing the World Through Photography” activity does not start until Season 2 of activities. Although I have started taking photos on my phone but not just random photos, I am trying to see if I can portray some sort of story through them.
I am planning on getting my first DSLR camera in a few weeks which will help me with both my photography and film so I can really get into it.
Just recently I was able to try out Adobe After Affects, Photoshop and Lightroom which will help me with both film and photography.
