Looking back on the semester, I am kind of sad and happy at the same time, because i will be walking for graduation on may 31. I am sad because when i think about all the classes I’ve had at York college, i would say this was by far one of the best classes vie taken here in my last four years. Professor Seslow is truly amazing, cares about his students and makes sure his students understand the assignment.
As i walked into digital story telling on the first, i was not expecting to acquire so much knowledge. As a first time user of adobe Photoshop, i was able to use the tools to make GIF’s, making my own memes, making a vaporware. We also got the chance to create a panoramic storytelling picture. I thought this was very interesting to have two related events happening in one image, and seeing the reflection of your self.
( Below is a few of the works i have done in the class )
Besides learning all of these tools, we had the opportunity of managing our own website, which i thought was the best part. We were able to choose our domain name, and set up our hosting with reclaim hosting. After that process was done, we were able to create different categories, add pages, changing our theme, and creating the website we envisioned.
I am happy i was able to finally create a food blog as i always wanted to, and i am hoping to continue it. After i look back at all the work i have done, i believe i should receive a B+ or an A- because i was absent once (accidentally over slept ) and i missed 2 assignments, but i believe i made up for it in my website, because i have put more time into adding blog posts on my website and making my blog user friendly.
P.S i would like to thank Professor Seslow for an amazing semester and not adding any stress into this class. I would definitely retake another class with him if i could, but it is my time to leave York college.
In class we learned how to recreate a new poster along with our own words referring to Ct 101. We learned how to do this by using Photoshop, by using the marquee tool to replace texts we wanted, although it was a bit difficult at first it, I started to find what I was doing wrong , which was selecting a big part of the text to remove but it only works with small texts at a time.
Below is the original poster
Below is the poster I’ve changed, thought it was a catchy phrase since they love to drink tea in England, and members of ct 101 will like to try some British tea.
Yesterday in CT 101 we learned how to set up our website which was very interesting and it was my first time.
So, in the beginning of the semester professor Seslow asked us to make a post on something we love, so i wrote about how much i love food, throughout the semester i thought of ideas to make my website based on. ABSOLUTELY food came to mind, As i always wanted to make a Instagram page based on food places I’ve been too, so i decided to make a food blog, and write how i feel about it.
I would like to thank professor Seslow for giving us the opportunity to have our own website, and showing us how to create the back end of it, and i finally have my own food blog!
Feel free to check out my food blog.
In today’s Class we had to create a GIF from portraits by adding our own filters to them, which with the end result i thought was pretty cool to make a gif on photoshop. It was all new to me, but it was a good experience. I hope i can remember how to do it on my own LOL. I chose Channing Tatum because i always thought he was cute but too bad he’s married😂.
So far i am loving this class with all the new things i have learned with photoshop and creating GIFS.
This GIF represent me in other classes, But in CT 101 i never think about the time, because i love what were doing.
The above photo depicts college students taking drinks to go into finals week and wishing everyone the best of luck, while on the other side after finals were done we all caught up again and had a few drinks where it ended up to us being drunk and hungover the next day.
Moral of the story : This is what finals do to you! 💀
