    Catch Me If You Can


    For this assignment, I needed to create a fun and interesting license plate. When I was bored in high school, I would look up on my computer cool plate commendations for my “dream car”. When I was doing this assignment, I wanted to select a cool background that reflects where …

    Design Blitz Time!


    This is my Design Blitz assignment for this week.

    This photo represents unity as all the individual elephants are the same shape and size, but together they make something much bigger. There is a sense of wholeness and unity because they are all touching.

    This photo represents dominance. There is …

    What a Wonderful Design


    This post is about what I learned from this weeks readings. I learned how color can focus the viewer on what is important. For instance, a white background allows the view to focus in on the objects or people in the photo, given there is little background distractions. Color can …

    My Adventure Through Week 5 Of DS106


    This was a pretty busy week for me outside of our class, so I was not able to engage as much as I wish I could have. That being said, I think this was a fun week! After I learned the basics of how to edit audio, I was able …

    Yikes! That Sounds Bad


    For this assignment, I needed to pick some of my least favorite sounds and mesh them together. It was pretty easy selecting these sounds. They consist of babies crying, traffic, and construction work and a restaurant. When I was younger, I did not like loud sounds. I would be the …

    That Sound Sounds Good


    For this assignment I had to select some of my favorite sounds and put them in one audio. I selected the sounds of dogs, rain, the forest, and cars. Those are some of my favorite sounds! Most peaceful sounds calm me down, like a waterfall or crickets chirping. I try …

    Spooky Season


    This was an Audio Assignment I came up by myself. Within this assignment, you must compile a bunch of scary sounds to create one big spooky audio. The point of this assignment is to start the sound, close your eyes, and feel the mood. Headphones would enhance the experience. It …

    Listening & Learning


    This is my evaluation based on the “Moon Graffiti” SoundCloud audio. This audio does such a good job from transitioning from one sound to another, it is very smooth. The sounds put you in the moment, like a Walt Disney ride. This audio gives you a completely different scenario if …

    Rock n Roll Bumper


    I used Audacity to create this Bumper. This is going to be a very fun week and I think this is just the beginning of us really expanding out and learning new ways to tell stories. I think audio editing is pretty hard, so you must take a lot of …

    I Was Bourne For This


    I had to use this assignment to my advantage because I love crime and spy movies. For this assignment, we needed to pick a photo of a secret agent and a quote from another agent and mesh the two. It took me a little bit to decide which two agents …

    Hey “Short”y


    For this assignment, I had to take a photo of an object and make it look “larger than life”. I chose to take a few photos instead of just one. The photos I took are of a pool table, a lamp, and a column.

    This assignment focuses on the objects’ …

    The Simple Kingdom


    As soon as I saw this assignment, I knew I had to do it. I had to create my own House Name with a logo, like in the T.V. show Game Of Thrones. This was pretty easy, as the website had simple instructions. That being said, it was difficult to …

    Green On Green


    For this assignment, I had to create an image from earth or grass and add items to make it look interesting. This was a pretty fun assignment, I enjoyed using the color green as much as I could. I tried to make it somewhat difficult to see every animal, so …

    Lights… Camera… iPhone


    This is a post about the things I learned this week about visual storytelling based on the readings. I am not the best at taking photos, as most of them come out blurry. But this is my process of trying to become a better photographer. There will be an ongoing …

    My Adventure Through Week Three Of DS106


    This was a pretty interesting week. There was a lot to read and watch and I enjoyed that. It was nice to soak in all the information I could early on in the week. These assignments were challenging to me because I am not the best writer. That being said, …

    Happy Place “With Fresh Air”


    For this assignment, I had to go outside and focus on nature. It was fun to take a step back from all the craziness of school online and see what Mother Nature had to offer.

    When I go outside, I see many beautiful things, but hear contradicting sounds. I live …

    Maneuvering Through The Digital Realm


    After the readings and watching the videos, I believe stories in the digital realm can be very complicated. They are not seen as two-dimensional or black and white, they are complex. If you open a book and start reading it, you must finish page 1 before you read page 2. …
