Rule of 3rds :
During the class of Digital Media, the learning objectives are taking pictures while using certain light, an amount of ISO, And knowing how to photoshop. These are valuable to my future because In other art classes I will know how to edit and take photos. Also when Just in regular life if I want to take pictures of family or friends I will know how to use the cameras.
The project that I am submitting as an artifact for Digital Media had the following learning objectives Using soft and hard light.these link back to the course learning objectives by using you certain amount of light and ISO, and shutter speed.
The assignment or project was about using the amount of light the outside world give you, Or making your own light using things to do that, And required me to take pictures with having 5 Hard light and 5 Soft light.The Process I went through to do this project and meet the learning objectives first started with deciding how I was gonna use the light and what model was gonna do in my picture.Th I had to come up with different backgrounds, Warmth or coolness of the light,and lastly doing the editing which was photoshopping.
Throughout this process listed above I have realized I have learned or grown in the following ways of knowing how to take good pictures with using my light in an effective way, And knowing how to pose a model.These link back to the course goals and project goals with the following evidence of showing I could show shadows with hard light and a clean look for the soft light where the highlights and shadows are filled in.This tells about myself and how I learned how to adapt how to use different settings to adjust my lighting. I also learned how to use different modes and that showed me I had to remember a lot of things with the camera.
The Two School Wide Learning Outcomes I demonstrated with this Artifact are Thinking critically and creatively, and Applying technological skills for the 21st century. I have demonstrated Thinking critically and creatively in the artifact by demonstrating I could come up with multiple ideas as far as what I wanted in my pictures and how I envisioned them to be. This is important because when I brainstorm ideas I expect them to become a reality.
The Second SLO I demonstrated was Applying technological skills for the 21st century by doing photoshop and showing I could save and digitally organize my pictures and this is important because It further my knowledge on how to work technology.I could have improved the following SLO better by Self Directed learner who communicates effectively by asking for my help and ideas from others.
Overall the most important things I have learned in this class this year are learning how to use different modes on the camera. And also how to photoshop. During this class I also learned how to communicate with models. This will be important to my future because it teaches me how to communicate with others and know how to work in a professional way.
During the class of Digitial media, the learning objectives are to be able to sue different settings on the camera, Also to be able to find different techniques to edit your photos this is valuable to my future because it further my knowledge on how the camera works and how I can use it. It’s also good because I am learning how to use the computer to edit my photos, which show me more about what I can do on the computer as well.
The project that I am submitting as an artifact for Digitial media 1 had the following learning objectives of following a theme and showing your self through these pictures. these links back to the course learning objectives by showing your techniques that you’ve learned and making them into your own style.
The assignment or project was about Picking a contest to enter in And required me to choose a theme and site to match what I wanted to do. The Process I went through to do this project and meet the learning objectives first started with looking at all the contests we had up for our choices. then I chose a theme I wanted to do, I chose a documentary. After that I had to brainstorm some ideas of what I was going to take pictures of. I didn’t want all the pictures to be the same, but it was very hard because I can’t just go out and take pictures of anything I want. But I managed to get some good photos. Throughout this process listed above I have realized I have learned and grown in My editing, Spacing, And angles of my photos. Before I didn’t give a lot of space in my photos and my angles were constantly the same. This tells me that I am able to show how I have changed. It shows that I have improved and open my mind to different types of ways to take and edit my pictures.
The Two School Wide Learning Outcomes I demonstrated with this Artifact are Applying technological skills for the 21st century, and Thinking critically and creatively. I have demonstrated Applying technological skills for the 21st century in the first artifact by demonstrating that I know how to edit and use different techniques to improve my pictures. This is important because it shows that I can make my photos look better from what they looked like before. I will help my picture be a better vision. The Second SLO I demonstrated was thinking critically and creatively by being able to take picture of a lot of different things and improving my creative editing style. I have a good variety of different settings and vibes towards each picture and it’s important because it allows me to show a certain feeling and mood to each picture. Not all pictures have the same story behind them. I don’t think I needed to improve on any of SLO’s.
Overall the the most important things I have learned in this class this year are just to be more open-minded about what I am doing and how I am doing them. In this class I got to learn a lot more about myself that I never knew about before, I didn’t realize I had a big passion for taking pictures until this year, So I thought that was very dope. These skills I have learned in this class will help me in the future by exploring different ways to take pictures and just being creative in general on how I can take and edit pictures, Also on how I can use a lot of different tools to take pictures that can make a big difference. Digital media in all has been a very good vibe. I hope to continue to take more pictures and take the skills I learned this year with me.
