Course Reflection

I have enjoyed my experience in CT101 tremendously. If I wasn’t so pressed to graduate soon, I would have been completely sold on making this my minor.  It made me proud to create a site and call it my own. Personally, I have been putting it off for so long so being in this class really …

I have enjoyed my experience in CT101 tremendously. If I wasn’t so pressed to graduate soon, I would have been completely sold on making this my minor.  It made me proud to create a site and call it my own. Personally, I have been putting it off for so long so being in this class really jumpstarted me in the right direction.

Learning new and innovative ways to express yourself on a web interface is beneficial in any field and it adds to your credentials. It is fun working with different software and finding out the immense capabilities of the tools that we have right at our fingertips.

I have learned a lot of useful material that I can take with me and apply to my work in Journalism. Most importantly, I appreciate Professor Ryan for being such a helpful yet easygoing  instructor that welcomed and promoted creative freedom to his students. I would definitely recommend him and this course.

 

Vapor Wave

I used this image I took of a mural I saw in Puerto Rico to create this vapor wave. I did it on my iPhone using the apps Professor Michael suggested, Ultrapop and ImgPlayPro. I was very surprised at how easy it was. The only challenge I came across was having to use multiple variations …

I used this image I took of a mural I saw in Puerto Rico to create this vapor wave. I did it on my iPhone using the apps Professor Michael suggested, Ultrapop and ImgPlayPro. I was very surprised at how easy it was. The only challenge I came across was having to use multiple variations of the image to create the animation. It was kind of a slap on the forehead kind of moment because that should have been pretty obvious but hindsight is 20/20.

Response to the Presidential Election

This was a classic response from Joe Biden during Barack Obama’s speech the day after the presidential elections. Ironically the mood was so gloomy this day and the weather certainly reflected that. I classify myself as an independent and this was only the second election that I have legally been able to vote in. For …

This was a classic response from Joe Biden during Barack Obama’s speech the day after the presidential elections. Ironically the mood was so gloomy this day and the weather certainly reflected that. I classify myself as an independent and this was only the second election that I have legally been able to vote in. For me, I was not too thrilled with the options this time around so I was a bit indifferent to the outcome of  this race.

Pop Star Out of Place

This assignment proved to be a little challenging at first, but eventually I got the hang of it after replaying the tutorial over and over again. In retrospect, I would have liked to be able to match the lighting better to make it look a little less obvious that Katy Perry doesn’t belong on the …

This assignment proved to be a little challenging at first, but eventually I got the hang of it after replaying the tutorial over and over again. In retrospect, I would have liked to be able to match the lighting better to make it look a little less obvious that Katy Perry doesn’t belong on the runway with the models but on the other hand it adds to the element of manifest.
