    Surreal Lake


    This assignment was a little bit tricky for me, it was hard to find two of my pictures to correspond with each other. These pictures were both taken on my vacation in Kentucky. Creating a panorama on your own can be very tricky.




    First, I had to …

    Mirror, Mirror


    For this assignment, I focused on McNulty. He is very easy to find mirror scenes of because they portray him always the same throughout the episodes.

    Jennifer Ralston


    The interview with Jennifer Ralston was extremely interesting! She made me realize how much sound truly does matter. The detail you have to go into just for sounds is astonishing. I never would have guessed any of the things she said. Like for silence, you actually add background sound. In …
