We've finally finished our seminar and it went so well! I led a seminar about photoshop and I created the figures, text box, and he dots and lines all myself and saved each layer and put them into a tinyurl so the students would have access to them and download them. with each layer I talked about how I made it and what steps I took in detail. I think this seminar went really well.
This week we are working in lightroom which is an app which allows you to change the lighting and look of your picture. Lightroom is super cool and helpful! Definitely recommend.
This week we have been doing Portraits in class. The one on the left is one of my favorites of myself and the one on the left is one I took of Regan Steffey. I have learned a lot about taking pictures of people such as you want to have a conversation with your subject and make them feel comfortable. And you'll need to get lots of shots so there is a lot of good options for your subject with different angles. I had fun with these photoshoots, I usually always have fun doing photoshoots anyways!
This year at ECS we are doing things differently. Every other year at ECS every semester we have these things called semester projects. Semester projects are projects we had done every semester, obviously, and had to create three media products about a certain topic of your liking. These projects are something that allowed us to be free and create products of our own on a topic we felt passionate about and we got to put all that passion to that project and they all have become something special to all of us. This year, on the other hand, as Seniors we are doing these things called Seminars. In these seminars we are allowed to do them either individually or in groups and we have to teach the underclassmen about a topic of our liking. This semester I chose to be in a group with 3 other people and our groups topic is Elements and Principles of Design and Photoshop. My part in this projects is to teach about the elements of design such as organization and placement and I will also be creating the poster/logo/design live while my other partners will be explaining what i'm doing and why and what each tool I us eon photoshop means and why I used it. I am very excited and will keep you updated on the progress of this seminar!
These posts will show my growth and the projects i continue to do through school and out in the real world but include just regular posts as well! I will try to post at least once every week.
