    Reflections on Photography + My Life (Part I)

    by

    I wouldn’t call myself a photographer, but the art of taking photographs has always intrigued me.

    When I was 10 years old, my parents bought me a Canon Powershot ELPH 100 HS for my birthday.

    I remember being SO excited to have my own camera. At the time, we had …

    For this assignment, we were to try to find as many pictures that show a list of photography points. I was able to find most.

    Comments

    Recently I have found that people only reply to me if I comment on their tweets, rather than their blog posts. At first this really discouraged me as I’ve really been reading and enjoying other’s assignments, but then I decided to start incorporating questions into my comments so they …

    You’re Not as Good as You Think

    by

    Growing up I thought I knew everything there was to know about photography; I was basically convinced I WAS a photographer. My dad purchased a camera for me when I was in 7th or 8th grade. I would just kind of “point and shoot” and be like,” Yep, this is …

    Favorite Song (ish) https://soundcloud.com/user-682371741/fullsizerender-online-audio-convertercom

    For this assignment, I cheated a little because this is not my favorite song, but it is something I saw on TikTok. In the TikTok, a creator performed a piano cover to this song and it sounded absolutely amazing and like the perfect wedding song. Of …

    What a Crappy Font Will Do

    by

    For this assignment, I was challenged to take a well known logo and mix it up by using a different font.

    For this assignment, I chose to use the logo for Aquafina water. The font of this logo is one of the main aspects, so I thought it would be …

    Photastic!

    by

    Alright, that was pretty fun. I love challenges like this because they force the person taking the pictures to think on their feet and I think you can get a more genuine picture sometimes because of this. This took me 13 minutes to do and I definitely have my own …

    Photoblitz

    by

    I was to participate in a 20 minute Photoblitz where I have twenty minutes to complete the tasks below. I had fun doing this, although I wasn’t sure what to find for contrast and well as it was hard finding two related objects that have drastically different sizes.

    Photo Reflection

    by

    I have absolutely zero experience with photography. This is an exaggeration of course because as we all have smart phones now, or with the existence of apps such as snapchat, taking pictures is something we do quite frequently. I personally do not take many photos, and I never have. It …

    Never in my life would I think I would be making my own Game of Thrones house as an assignment for a college level class. This is a first, and I’m not complaining. I used jointherealm.com’s tool for creating a house to make mine, and let me say it was …
