Video Project: Life In The Backcountry
In this project we picked a topic that we wanted to make a documentary film about and we had to put it on youtube. We had to use the information we got from the two documentaries that we watched. "Exit Through The Gift" Shop and "Blackfish". I made mine about backcountry skiing and enjoying life.
Design Your Own Art Project
Teacher Creature Project
In this project we picked a teacher and we asked them whatever questions we wanted and then we chose photos from the internet and we made a photoshop picture of our teachers favorite animal with our teachers "face." I think the hardest part was when I ran out of ideas and had no clue what to do so then I asked Roxy for help and she gave me a brief idea of what to do. I think my favorite part of this project was me getting to pick my favorite teacher to do this and sorta get to know her a little more personally. In this project I learned how to use the internet to figure out how to do things on photoshop (youtube), and that another easy way to learn the tools is to just mess around with them and see what they do.
The Landscape Project
In this project i learned how to use scale and proportion to make a landscape picture. In this project I thought that the most useful tool was the quick select tool and the eraser tool. These were useful because I had to cut out the purple flower and the tent from another photo to import it into this photo. When I was finished i had to save it as two different files. I had to save it as a photoshop document and a jpeg document. A photoshop document is were you can open it up again in photoshop and continue to work on it. A jpeg document is were it flattens all of the layers so you can not open it up in photoshop and you can not work on it.
