In this sound exercise, we sought after a crowded place around campus and had to interview a person about any given topic, and tried to capture the sound as best quality as we could. We had to capture sound in both a crowded, noisy place with a lot of background noise, as well as a relatively quiet place with minimal noise. We decided to choose the Quad area as our noisy location for sound as there is a lot of background noise there, which we had to try and minimise whilst conducting the interview with our subject. We used the boom pole and zoom H4 to record the sound. We held the boom pole as close as we possibly could to the person being interviewed as well as the interviewer, without it being visible within the camera frame. We managed to capture the sound quite well, and the dialog was clear, without being suffocated by the background noise. The video we captured was unusable due to a dirty camera lens, that was undetected whilst filming. However, the exercise was about sound, and i think that we captured the sound pretty well for a crowded place as the boom pole helped a lot with this. We were unable to capture sound within a quite location, as there was no one around to be interviewed or want to be interviewed, however we did several test recordings and played the sound back on our zoom, where the sound captured was clear. We thought it was more important, however to see if we can capture sound within a crowded, and difficult space as we wanted to challenge ourselves and see if we could capture quality sound within difficult sound environments.
