Weekly Summary: Five

This week was by far one of my favorites in the class! I really enjoyed the visual assignments and learning more about photography and visual media techniques. I definitely learned a lot about creating visual media. For most of my visual assignments and daily creates I have been using a free online editor called Pixlr, which you will find linked in many of my blog posts and reflections that will be embedded in this post. I think this application  is super helpful and user-friendly for many of the assignments. I also learned a lot about techniques in photographing which were super helpful in completing many of this weeks assignments, specifically the Photoblitz activity. Some of the challenges I faced were simply due to the fact that I cannot download Photoshop on my Chromebook. However, PIxlr has been an adequate editor. I also learned a lot about what it means to tell a story via visual techniques. Pictures are a great way to capture emotion, plot, and human interaction. Perception can also be a great element in stories that is captured through pictures. Below I will embed all of my assignments for Week 5.

  7. Daily Creates
    1. Print All Over Me– I created this image via Pixlr. I added the flower stickers to the photograph. In this picture, my pug and I are flower children, bursting with sweet-smelling flowers in the summer sun.
    2. Crossing Abbey Road– I created this image as well with Pixlr by adding the stickers of the ducks to the image of Abbey Road. It would be so cute it a bunch of little rubber duckies all lined up on Abbey Road. Even better if they were real ducks!
    3. Latte Art– I love latte art and coffee shops in general so I was very excited about this assignment. Pictured is a cup of love to start the day right. Love can put any bad day before into a joyful perspective for the day to come.
    4. Old and New– For this assignment, I did the same as before via Pixlr and the sticker feature. I added headphones to some of the characters in the image. The one side is definitely tuning this buy out.
