    Weekly Assignment #5


    Week 5! This week was filled with a ton of audio assignments, far from my favorite thing to do! But this is mostly because I have never messed with audio before. When I first saw that we were dealing with audio assignments this week I immediately panicked! Audio is my …

    Gotta Start Somewhere


    Photography has always been a fairly big part of my life one
    way or another. As a small child I would walk around with my fake camera taking

    could carry around my neck. As I got …
