I am happy to announce that my week 3 assignments are completed and I am one happy cookie. The daily creates took me a little bit longer to start this week because I did not like them. But I did the one from Thursday which was to show silence in a movie; Free Throw in style! I did the one on Friday that was to show yourself making a paper sculpture; Paper Sailboat. Lastly, for my daily create I did the one on Saturday which was to write instructions for an everyday item and I did mine on eating a bowl of cereal. I updated my blog to add menus onto my sidebar and then I changed my profile layout again and added a background to my screen. I started my week by doing my Visual Assignments because I actually enjoy doing them the most. I went onto the website and browsed through the pages to find other assignments to do other than the mandatory one for our character. I did the Post It notes assignment which was 3 stars and I based it on my character which helped go towards my 5 stars for the week. Next I found an assignment to make a collage of pictures from A to Z based on the same theme or category. I did mine based on animals because I love animals and I was able to put most of my favorite animals into one collage. I finished my visual assignments with the What’s in your Bag assignment designated to our character, which I had a lot of fun with because I could put things in there that would go along with her story in the future and stuff that she already had. My noir photo safari was a lot more fun to do then I expected, once I figured out what things I was going to base my photos on I enjoyed going to find and take the photos, plus the help of my friends made it easier to accomplish. I really enjoyed watching the movies this week, I did not think I would enjoy them at first but once I started watching them I got into them. I really enjoyed watching “Killer’s Kiss” and “The Hitch-hiker” because I got to really witness the noir themes and key features described in the readings in the films. I liked finding scenes that went along with the elements plus it was fun learning how to screen shot on my mac (sorry I am so far behind the short cuts on a computer) HA. Lastly, I did my analysis on my own photography, and let me add that I never realized how many selfies and group photos I have on my phone/ computer until I really went through and looked. I am really planning on adding new techniques and styles when I take photos because really cool photos could be developed. The readings and videos were very insightful to everyday life and plus it gave me background on some techniques for noir style photography.
I was very iffy about this week when I first looked at what was needed to do but I generally enjoyed everything that was needed to be done this week. I am looking forward to the next week to start so I can see what is in store!
