So and So’s Greatest Hits

So and So’s Greatest Hits! I chose Fetty Wap, he has been at the top of the charts ever since his hit single “Trap Queen”. For that reason is why he’s been in my music playlist for awhile now. I love how he has his own style he doesn’t follow anyone else, he is creating his on path. His mix of rap and r&b together just sound great together and a lot of people really enjoy it!

I already had these songs so it was pretty easy to import them into audacity and then simply create a mix of the 5 songs. I am pretty happy with the end result, (seeing how I’m not a DJ or anything:) !

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Do you hear what I hear??? These are sounds that I hear very often. All the rain that we have been getting in the last few weeks has been crazy, I basically have gotten used to it. I chose to throw in the traffic sounds also because I am always stuck in traffic on my way to school or when I am on 95, impatient drivers are always blowing their horns! The birds chirping should be a regular sound for anyone, even though they are going to start to slow down since the weather has started to break into fall.

The way that I did this assignment was I found my sounds on YouTube, then I converted them to mp3 files and simply imported them into Audacity. Didn’t take much effort since I have finally figured out how to work the program.

Weekly Summary #6

This week in Ds106 we got do more photography and design which I love! Reading different things about design really makes you wonder when is it going to stop, how far you can go before there is too much. But I realized there is no barriers on it. If you can think of it, you can design it, and add more and more onto it. There are many different categories that come with design like rhythm, balance, dominance and many more. Which I had no idea about, I didn’t know there was a long thought process being designs and pictures.

How well do you feel you completed the requirements of the week’s assignments?

  • I feel that this week I didn’t just put the media I was required but I added a lot more background to each of the assignments and I’m very satisfied with my work.

What gave you trouble? What did you enjoy most? What did you learn?

  • Nothing really gave me trouble this week, it was more fun than anything. I enjoyed doing all of assignment bank designs! And I learned a whole new background on design.

What would you do differently? What questions to you have?

  • I don’t really know what I would do differently because I am very satisfies on how I did all of my assignments.

DesignBlitz

I was assigned to create a “DesignBlitz”. I had to take 4 categories out of 10 and get pictures to represent all of them. At first, I had no idea how to incorporate the categories into photos, but in the end I think! HOPEFULLY

COLOR: I took a picture of myself while I was waiting to play a basketball game. Because I noticed all of colors that I had on and the colors in the gymnasium, so I took a photo and it came out really cool. Everything really POPS!

UNITY: I thought it would be hilarious to set my two nephews in the trunk of my car. They were having a blast playing with a basketball and I thought to myself, I had to take a picture! I think that it is a perfect example of unity, because they are twins so together they are ONE.

FORM/FUNCTION/MESSAGE: I took a picture of my Associates Degree that I got in the mail this week, I thought that It would a great example of something that shows a message. I think that it tells a message to people that if you actually try you can do anything. I was a TERRIBLE high school student, I never thought I would be in college until I put my mind to it and got a degree, now I am working towards my bachelors.

USE OF SPACE: For this category I took a picture of a mix tape cover. For the simple fact that I think it is so cool how designers can put so many things into one small photo and make it look like more than it actually it.

Weekly Summary #5

This week is DS106 I actually learned something new about myself that I never would have thought. I really like photography. I never actually paid attention to it until it was assigned to me. I love how pictures are taken, the different ways they can be shot, all of the different stories that they tell. Being able to take one simple still photo, but yet you see so many other ways of looking at it is amazing. Along with that I learned how to become a better photographer which will help out my blog tremendously and hopefully get a couple more likes on Instagram! Haha. At first it was a bit of a challenge to think about what to take pictures of but once I thought of one they all just came rushing to my head.

The Assignments this week were very fun, it gave me a chance to be as creative as I could be. Which at first I thought I had ZERO creativity what’s so ever, but I started to see things in my head and get ideas that were pretty cool. From making the poster of Steph Curry to doing the Photo Blitz I enjoyed.

I was also cool to look at everyone else’s pictures that they had taken because I like to compares mine to theirs. I don’t know why but everything tome is a competition mine has to be better than someone else’s! But I have to admit after seeing theirs mine came 2nd to a lot of them. But I didn’t mind because the way that I see something, isn’t the same way that they see it. That showed in our pictures.

I didn’t have any issues with anything this week, I figured out everything that I needed to. Flickr took a little time but I got through it. It’s all a learning process and I’m getting better and better.
