Photoshop Learning Process
Halloween Picture Frame-Photoshop
In this project Viv and I made the picture frame in photoshop by bringing in images from google and then using the magic wand to cut it our. We used the gradient tool to put the colors orange and black kind of mixing with each other because those are the two Halloween colors. Then Taryn, Rose, Sofia, Viv and I went in the court yard and took pictures of ourselves and put them into black and white. Then we used the app Photoshop Mix to then insert the black and white image with the picture frame.
In this project I worked with Viv and Taryn. We used the poem and we wrote the quotes that were in the poem to putt in the middle of the project. We then grabbed and image that had clouds and the ocean to symbolize the first line. Then we got an image from google of a tulip and we used the magic wand to cut it out. and to symbolize the second line. Finally we cut out a tree to then put in the other corner of the project and we also used the magic wand to do so.
PBIS M.O.V.E with a purpose Movie
To make this video Viv, Rose, Sofia, Taryn and I thought of ways to be good and the hallways and then we thought of negative ways to act in the hallway. We then used the video camera to record all these clips so that it would come to one big movie at the end. We recorded all these lips in the 7th and 8th grade locker room and on the stairs. Then we downloaded all the video clips onto the computer to then make them into an iMovie. We added in titles for the beginning of the clips and then we added in the Features at the end. We then added some music to go with the video.
Ping Pong Photoshop
When I first saw James picture I was really confused and stuck on what I wanted to do with it. I thought I might be able to make the image into a full comic strip but then I decided just to focus on one little part. I thought of filling in the background with graffiti but the measurements didn't work out so instead I decided to look up a picture of a comic text bubble and I put in letters FIRE!!!!. I then decided to have a person running from the problem and then I found a picture of a man running. I had to cut around the rest of the picture of the man to crop it out. I really enjoyed this project because it made me think of different ways to do certain things and it gave me more practice with photoshop.
Halloween Photo Shoot
During this project Vivian, Rose, Sofia, Taryn and I worked on it for about 2 weeks. We had to make the picture frame in photoshop. to make the frame we made sure that there was enough space in the middle to put the actual photo in. Then we added images of goghsts and spiders to make it more themed as halloween and we put them in the for corners. Then we took two colors and made them bled into each other throughout the whole frame as you can see. Then on the day of the photoshoot during lunch of each grade we took pictures of friends and then downloaded the pictures taken into the computer. After, we edited the pictures a little bit so the contrast right with all the different colors so then we could put the picture in the frame to then be able to print the pictures and to hand them back to all the people that ordered. If I could do this over again I would plan everything ahead and be a little more organized because when we were taking pictures everything was crazy.
Rose and I created this barn in Minecraft because we wanted to build something that e could put animals in and to keep them. We used red blocks to build most of the barn but then we used white locks to make designs on the barn. We then finished the roof off with glass so you could be able to see the sky and it made it more futuristic.
This week: 11/20/17
This week I have been working on a tour around the whole school with Taryn and Vivian on one of the video cameras. We are making this tour to send to the students in Phoenix. We are still recording right now so after we finish recording today we will put the clips into iMovie to make a whole movie. We will finish by the end of the week after Thanksgiving break most likely.
December 4th Blog
The project I'm working on is the intro interviews for Phoenix. I have been working with the white video cameras and the tripods to find he videos. Then I uploaded the videos to Flip grid so that the other students could see them. Right I'm still filming the videos for the interviews with some people in the class. By the end of the day on Friday I plan on having all my interviews uploaded and working on a new project. To have the whole project complete I have to be organized with where I put the videos and to have them uploaded.
Phoenix School Tour
In this project Vivian, Taryn and I made a video of our school tour to send to the Phoenix students so we could compare our schools and show them what our school in Evanston looks like. We separated it by the three floors and each one of us recorded the video for each floor. We then put it into iMovie and edited and added transitions to the video.
Laser Cutting Project
In this project I wanted to make a present for my parents. I decided to use the laser printer to make a heart ornament with my families last names and I put a family picture we took in Colorado during the summer. To do this process I out my picture into Photoshop. Then I edited it to the threshold to what I wanted it to be so it would engrave it in the wood. I then moved that image to the website for the laser cutter. I then put in a heart around the picture and added my lasts names in my family with a 2018. I printed this out with the wood but it didn't cut out a whole so I decided to add in a hole so it would be an ornament. Then I printed it again but this time it didn't cut all the way through. I did it two more times and then it worked and make it how I wanted it to be and the right size.
Laser Cutter Snowflake
In this project I used a web site called Snowflake generator to make the snowflakes. I then saved the created snowflakes as a JPG and then put them in Illustrator. I made it so there was only a a outline so that I could put it into the laser printer and it would only cut it out. Then I added the circles around the snowflake and I added two holes for the the ribbon to go through so it would be an ornament. I printed them and then I spay painted them in the courtyard. It is a light blue with a sparkly top layer. Finally I got the ribbon and threaded it through.
January 12th Blog
I am interested in filming with the DSL to record the "What Home Fells Like" video for advanced drama. I am also interested in filming or photographing the actual show. I have been working on making Mrs. T and Mr. W wedding center piece. I have been using the laser cutter and photoshop to use to create and build the center piece. I am just about finished I am just working so the center piece will fit he mason jar.
Ms. Terrell and Mr. Walkfaust Center Pieces
For this project Ms. Terrell and Mr. Walkfaust wanted to have a Star Wars themed wedding. During the project they decided to have the center piece be a circle and they wanted the text to be star wars themed as well. At the beginning we decided that the letters at the bottom at the top would be straight and not curved but then when we printed it it ding fit the mason jar they wanted in the middle. Then in photoshopped I had to curve to bottom text to fit around the circle because inbetween both text they want a mason jar to be placed and would fit a lot better. We decided not to round the top text because they wanted their names bigger and centered. Although during the curving the words I got really frustrated because sometimes the websites or applications I used would not work right. After I made the text and I went into 10.3.4.17 website for the laser cutter and then I placed the text into it. I created a circle that fit the curved words right and then I printed them. We printed many before we finally finalized one good one. The image on the left is what it looks like on the 10.3.4.17 website and on the right it is the finished product.
