    Breaking Down “Tangled”

    Selection- Tangled is extremely picky. Every frame has a purpose. When combined with the audio, the images are always working towards further telling the story. It’s hard to show an example for this- go watch the movie and see how each image plays a part!

    Contrast Example Contrast- Contrast is …

    Previous Photography Experience


    I don’t have much previous photography experience unless you count constant pictures of my son with my iPhone. I’ve never even held a “real” camera. I wouldn’t even be able to tell you which picture was the “better” one out of a group. I’m excited to learn more about photography …

    Weekly Summary: Week 3


    I loved this week. I’m much more of a writer than someone who can edit pictures or write software (not even sure that’s the write lingo), so I was grateful for a manageable week.

    Our story analysis was tricky for me. I couldn’t really connect with any of the examples …

    Dear Mom,


    Dear Mom,

    I don’t even know where to start. They say you never truly appreciate your mom until you become a mom yourself… man is that true. This mom gig is hard. I feel like I never know what I’m doing or what’s coming.

    When I was younger I thought …

    Hello, Me.


    Hi Kara! It’s Kara. 10 years ago you sat down and wrote this letter to yourself. You’re going to talk about all of your hopes and dreams, but my true goal is that when you read this you’ll be happy. That could mean being happily married with 4 kids, or …

    Eliciting emotions


    This assignment caught my eye because songs almost always elicit some sort of emotional response from me. I went with the easiest emotion (sadness) be use there are so many songs that make you feel sad. I pulled the tip three that came to mind and are the most recent. …

    Introducing: Manny


    It took me a long time to decide what kind of character I wanted to create. I used to be very into Greek mythology, but I feel as if every creature already has a name and purpose. Trying to create my own would be extremely difficult and I’d feel like …

    Telling Tangled


    Instead of picking on of the provided stories to read, I chose to rematch Disney’s Tangled. I’m 200% obsessed with this movie so I’ll use any excuse to re-watch it. Once I did the readings and watched the Vonnegut video, I realized Tangled would be perfect for this assignment. I …

    My Wacky Week


    What a week! Last week I felt way over my head and didn’t really know what was going on. This week I felt like I had a better grasp on the assignments and computer programs, and was able to get a bit more into it. I loved the daily creates

    Summary & Reflections (8/27-8/31)


    What a week! I thought that this class would be easy since it’s a 100 level class… but ignored the fact that technology hates me. Setting up my social media accounts was much more challenging than I thought it would be. I had NO idea how to work soundcloud, slack, …

    My Feelings on the Theme

    Disney’s “Tangled”

    This semester we will be using the theme of “legend, myth, and folklore.” This theme makes me a bit nervous since I’m not big on these sorts of things. I think an interesting direction to take this theme might be adding our own twist. If we used existing …

    It only took me an hour…


    Hi! Finally I figured out how to create a post. And I’m still not convinced this will go to the right place. This is going to be a long semester guys.


    Anyways, I’m Kara. I’m a senior majoring in psychology & will be getting my masters in elementary education …
