My first panorama

fullsizerender-1This was very interesting I figured the corn maize was the best place to duplicate myself so I can find my way out of here!

I really never knew my iPhone could even create something like this,it just really makes me think of what else that is so simple and yet looks so difficult! it took me a while to finally post this one because it was a bit rough running to be in the frame so quickly and of course the photographer having a shaky hand can make a difference too.

I also picked this filter to add to my picture because I really love adding filters to my pictures to bring out a different feeling that this picture makes you feel.  I think the black and white pictures add a vintage and mysterious look to this picture and that is really why I choose it.

I really hope you enjoy!

How many effects does it take?

This picture of my favorite bridge at sunset comes alive with the blur effect on glitche` a photo editing app.In all honesty, my first reaction to this app was that it’s a bit confusing but it is sort of just like a new phone you have to play around with it to be used to it.  What I liked about it was that it had the Gif option already on the app its self so all you had to do was create the moving image to it.  img_3749 This one below is a video i created by also using two effects from the Glitche` app. It was originally in video format i used photoshop to be able to post this on the blog.

Why a Domain Of One’s Own?

What inspired me the most from Audrey Watters speech is that she mentions her personal life and how she used technology to find a way to cope. She mentions how she found a community that helped her cope with her situation better than anyone on her campus did. I found this inspiring because she stresses the importance of communication in technology.  She also mentions the importance of why she believes a Domain of our own is so important because she sees how companies use our weakness in being ignorant towards technology and want us to trust them with what could be important information.  I agree with her point about having a domain of our own it gives us a sense of power and control, with this, we can feel like we can change our future and not let someone else do it for us.
