Photography Madness

So this week was overall pretty good! I thought it was a fun week. I really liked the Photoblitz assignment! I thought it was really cool that it generates a random list of things and you take photos and put them together. I also really enjoyed reflecting on cinematography and photography as well. In terms of photography, as I mentioned in the post, I never really think that much about the pictures I’m taking. Usually that’s because I just want to remember the moment so I snap a quick photo, I don’t think about the rest. I did like that becoming better photographers was really simple and straightforward. I think I’m going to try and pay a little more attention to lighting and the moment when taking photos. I’m especially excited for the tips for my trip to Croatia after graduation, I think they will definitely come in handy.

My favorite post this week was the collage or the visual assignment where you have to guess what I took a close up of (so far, no one knows). I also enjoyed the posts that were chosen for us to do. I really liked seeing the different ideas people had, like this one which was very creative. The daily creates this week were also pretty fun, I thought! I struggled a little with the stop motion one for today, but I think it turned out pretty well.

I’m excited for next week!

The Week Full of Exploring and Creating

Happy week two everyone!

This week was a lot better than last for me, I played around with WordPress some and got the lay of the land figured out (I think). I had a lot of fun with the Daily Creates on Twitter (check them out, here!) Sorry you all had to experience my artistic struggle with the drawing. The first daily create, I took maybe a little too literally but I figured it still explained the quote, so I went with it! For the second, I got to color a cow! I was real excited about this one, because I love cows, like a lot. I just kinda went with my imagination and chose random colors for him. The third one was another pretty simple one, we just had to knock on something with some sort of pattern. Overall, I enjoyed doing the Daily Create assignments! I thought they were fun, quick little things that you can get done with simple tools.

The Assignment Bank assignments were a little different, but I love them because they’re all made by people for other people to do! I love that idea, mostly because the assignments are created by us which I think makes them more fun and relatable. I chose a Visual, Web and Writing assignment for this week. My visual assignment involved taking a photo and changing the color and hue to make it look totally different. I used a picture of a garden decoration shaped like a butterfly that I took from underneath (so you can see the sky). I darkened it some and then brightened the pink in the clouds. I changed the hue around and honestly just moved the dial until I thought it looked pretty. I used the editing software that came with my surface, not sure what it’s called. My web assignment was my favorite, by far! I got to create my dream room on Pinterest (which I’m obsessed with). I had a lot of fun searching through bedroom ideas and furniture to find things I liked. I think once I have the money and time to actually decorate my own room, it’s going to be a problem getting everything to match and go together. The last assignment, I wrote about freshman move in day, which was a pretty chill day! I also added a little picture of Bushnell and circled my room, for reference.

I got to know a little more about WordPress and my chosen theme this week as well. I added two new pages including and About page. I also officially named my blog (yay!)!I explored the assignment bank as well and tagged some assignments that looked interesting for the future. I’m excited to see what the Daily creates have in store for us this week too!
