    Domestic Design


    The area of design in recent life. I personally love designing images and things like a website. Though I am an amateur I do enjoy practicing and learning new techniques. For example the elements of design and color patterns. Starting from the basics that may go over looked something as …

    Week 5 Summary


    For this week’s assignments I worked with audios along side my daily creates on twitter. I haven’t experimented a whole lot with audio, so I found these assignments fun and new.

    I first began with listening to a story and writing the blog Audio Story. I wrote about how …

    Music Mashup


    For this assignment I had to put two songs together into a conversation. I decided to do the songs Driver’s License by Olivia Rodrigo and Green Lights by Kyd the Band. To create this mashup I began by downloading the two songs and an instrumental version of Driver’s License. I …

    Audio Story


    I don’t listen to podcasts and audiobooks very often. I always forget how entertaining they can be. For this assignment, I listened to From Tree to Shining Tree.

    I think that the background sound effects, noises, and music adds a lot to the story. The music helps set the mood. …

    Week 5 Summary

    Image Found Here

    This week was all about audio!

    My first ds106 audio assignment involved reordering a musical I know. The idea was to either completely reverse the order from end to beginning, or to mix the songs around in an order of your choosing. I kind of did both. …

    Yappy Little Trees

    Not quite like this, but close enough.

    Bob Ross might be famous for his happy trees, but as this episode of Radiolab will tell you, the real things are more yappy than happy.

    First I just wanna say that I had no idea fungi and trees worked together to …

    Week 5 Daily Creates


    Today’s Daily Create asked us to replace the word “love” with Monty Python. I felt Rihanna’s We Found Love In A Hopeless Place was a great mashup for the peasant scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I used an online meme creator to complete this one.

    Over …

    Week Five Summary


    We had a pretty easy week with only a couple of assignments. We had to listen to either a live radio show or the Radio Lab story, 1-2 or 4 stars worth of audio assignments from the assignment bank and 3 daily creates.

    I didn’t get a chance to listen …

    Daily Create – Week Five


    As usual, we had three daily creates for the week. I did a “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster remake, made a ransom note and sent someone to cool down the Earth. I used Google and links from the @ds106dc tweets to create my daily creates. For the poster, I …

    Assignment Bank – Audio


    For this weeks assignment bank, we had to choose an audio assignment worth four stars. I chose to do “Music Mashup”, where you pick two songs and make them into one. The hardest part was actually picking the songs I wanted to mashup. I would try a few different …

    One Wicked Remix


    For this #ds106 Listening Assignment you are supposed to reverse a musical. The question is whether you can change the narrative by doing so. I didn’t think the story would necessarily change that match from simply reversing the order of the songs, at least not for my chosen musical, Wicked. …

    Shooting Desk Toys


    I wasn’t able to go anywhere particularly interesting to take some pictures, but rather than use photos from previous trips, I decided to try out some of the composition tips right in my office. . . with desk toys!

    I have several different desk toys and decorations to keep me …

    Colorize it

    Rating: 3 out of 5.

    For the Colorize It assignment, I had to adjust multiple colors in an image. I edited the photo using Adobe Lightroom. The settings I changed the colors to are in the photos above. Bob Ross says, “Isn’t it fantastic that you can change …

    Photo Manipulation


    I love photo editing softwares and I edit all of my photos. I think it’s okay to use photoshop to enhance people’s features, but not change who they are and how they look. There is a difference between photoshopping artistically and photoshopping for likes.

    Reflecting Photography


    I have been familiar with the majority of these tips for a while now. Every time I photograph I always consider my subjects location, surroundings, and angles. On Thursday, I had a little photoshoot where I used these photography tips. I enjoyed this assignment

    Week 4 Summary


    It’s digital photography week! I have to say I was excited when I read the week’s topic. I have always had some interest in photography (haven’t we all?), but it usually was something I did with friends when I was younger or since did on my own. I definitely enjoyed …

    Week Four Summary


    This week was all about photography and photo editing. We had readings about modern photography, famous photographers, photo manipulation, and photography tips. We were also supposed to connect with others in the class on discord and twitter. I didn’t do this very well, because it’s a little uncomfortable to comment …

    Daily Create – Week Four


    Three daily creates for this week again. I did “dot day”, “please_____________thank you” and. For dot day, I found a picture of a simple connect the dots on Google and drew it in my notes app on my iPhone. I screen recorded myself connecting the dots and posted it. For …

    Assignment Bank – Visual


     For this week’s assignment bank, we had to do eight stars worth of visual assignments. Like last week I picked two assignments rated at about four stars. They didn’t take long and I actually finished both in one night. I prefer the visual assignments over the writings we did last …

    Photo Manipulation


    Photo manipulation has come a long way over the years and is now accessible to everyone. Photoshop is the main app used for photo manipulation, but many alternatives are available as well. With all of these tools available, we are able to change our photos by adding filters, fix blemishes, …

    Jim Richardson


    Jim Richardson is a photographer and his photos appear frequently in National Geographic Magazine. His work has taken him all over the world. His photos primarily focus on nature and traditions from different cultures around the world. I chose some of my favorites from his Small World Gallery. In all …

    The Art of Photography


    As much as I love taking photos, I prefer to live in the moment at events that are special to me. A lot of friends and family ask me to bring a camera, but sometimes I want to be apart of the excitement rather than snapping photos in the background. …

    Week 4 Daily Creates


    For International Dot day, I used one of the cupcakes I’d made the day before! I considered trying to use food dye in some manner to create dots, maybe even a tie dye dot effect, however I knew this would take me longer than it should (not to mention, I’d …

    Something Unexpected


    This evening I found myself wandering around looking at everything I passed by wondering how each object might look super close up. I was trying to find just the right object (or animal, but my dog’s a bit squirmy) to take a very close-up photo which could trick an audience. …

    Photography Is (not) Dead


    Photography plays a very big role in our lives, even if we’re not a photographer. I don’t know about you, but no matter how much storage I have on my phone, my camera roll seems to take up the most storage. We take pictures all of the time – screenshots …
