    Photography in the 1980’s

    by

    I’ve looked at some photos from the 80’s on google and I found a lot of pictures with a political agenda. You can definitely see there was some conflict in the political landscape back then. Of course even today there is still conflict when it comes to politics. I also …

    Week 4 Summary-Photography

    by

    Photography week is definitely one I easily got myself lost in. I enjoy the challenge of finding a “new” abandoned building(though I didn’t use it for any of the assignments). I also loved being introduced to Annie Leibovitz and the malls of the 1980 ‘s. What’s beautiful is that it’s …

    In History

    Since it is hard for me to take a full-body picture of myself, I decided to use an old picture of me doing a bigfoot pose for this little project. I would like to tackle this assignment again with a little help in taking a better picture for the task.…

    A Day in the Life (a visual story)

    by

    This is a typical day in my life when I am not at school or when my children are at their dad’s house. This particular weekend involved potting my new plants and testing out one of my Polaroids. My picture was distorted, because the film got stuck. I had also …

    Storytelling is something that is all around us. It is something we need to familiarize ourselves with in order to compete and stay relevant. Although stories do follow the same overused outline there are ways to brand a story in a way that makes it refreshing. It is no secret …

    Happy music

    For this assignment I debated about using the emotion “inspiring” since the songs I find that make me happy, pumped, or just plain emotional I find them to also be inspiring. So I decided to just go with happy to narrow it down.

    The first song is called Home by …

Even something like getting fast food. How often do you ponder where the potatoes that make your french …
