Today in class, we made some touch ups of our website that will help it move along great. We installed Akismet- anti spam onto the website to prevent unnecessary spams. Creating a website overall was hard in itself but I was able to manage, because what I learned is that in doing this, my website will create more buzz feed. As you’ll see I added new features like a contact me, exploring photographs, an about me section, and jetpack.
Developing my own website is crazy awesome because I can now, show the world my passion for photography and writing. Before, I did not know how to express my work, it looks like I can finally do that now.
So, anyway back to photojournalism, it has always been something I was passionate about. Having the ability to create new images and appreciate the history of photography and how things work. Taking photos gives me feel relaxed like I am in my element.
Now, the days are going down fast, everything is going to get more difficult to handle because you got assignments due, midterms and exams to complete in order achieve that finish grade, that you most desperately want.
Hard work in progress and goals reached. Even though it might say cram week on top, it does not mean spiral out of control. Plan and organize, the remaining months, so you have everything worked out before the holiday’s hit you because you do not want to look like this if it does become cram week for you>
Creating animated portrait GIF again, but this time using multiple layer frames of the image with dramatic effects in the Adobe Photoshop, which consist the lasso tool that I used to cut out the glasses on Spike Lee’s face. The image I chose was Spike Lee because he is an iconic filmmaker, actor, and writer since the 80s. His films target social injustice and controversy towards race and violence in law enforcement, and the government in urban communities, that connect to our world today. He is the only black filmmaker I know that still holds the culture of urban life in his films rather it was good or bad. Even specific locations within the films formulate meanings, that some people might pass by when they are watching them. This class has given me the opportunity to introduce, people in the music/movie industry that matters to me in GIF form.
