This project was difficult for me. I kept getting the dimensions wrong and making objects to big or too small. Once I got help from my teacher my photos improved. I took a lot of pictures and continued to revise them and get feedback. I tried to take pictures with very minimal background as well as pictures with interesting backgrounds.

This is my high school post. Its a little odd posting pictures about what high school means to me, since I'm still in it. In high school Facebook became popular. The twilight movie came out. I joined anime club. I also became more interested in old movies, like Breakfast at Tiffany's. I also became more interested in fashion or what I was wearing. During this time I also began taking classes at 826 Valencia and became more interested in writing.

During middle school everything was changing and I became interested in different things like the Twilight series. In middle school we were supposed to study the renaissance, but instead we studied the harlem renaissance. Also during this time people were changing and there were more cliques and "mean girls." I also got accommodations and began bringing my computer to school.
In my late childhood I struggled with math so every night my dad would run flashcards with me. Also during my childhood many of the new Disney-Pixar movies came out like Monsters Inc. Also during this time I became interested in writing and had many journals. During school we were learning about Ancient Societies which was very interesting.

These pictures really describe my childhood. My dads friend traveled to Japan a lot when I was younger and brought me back Sailor Moon paraphernalia. I ended up with dolls, movies and even a pillow. When I was 3 I got glasses, which were huge and round. Also when I was younger my dad worked at C-NET and he brought me movies and computer games that C-NET received.

For this project we had to take pictures of our classmates, but we had to do it in interesting ways. For some of the pictures I had people pose but other times I tried to take quick snapshots of people, sometimes when they weren't paying attention to the camera, but acting naturally
Jessica's style is op-art or portraits. She uses Avedon's style when taking pictures of people, putting them against a white background. Her op art pictures are also really strong and her use of color and images is really cool.
Sacha uses color and takes very surrealist pictures. All of her pictures have been slightly odd but also really interesting and David LaChappelle seems to be an influence in many of her pieces.
Carly is a great photographer and uses images of Drew and around Drew to her advantage. Her op art pictures are amazing
Keely uses texture and color in her photos to her advantage. She uses nature as well to make really interesting pictures.
Stephanie is always looking for new ways to make her pictures more interesting. she is creative and innovative trying new ways to photograph and new ways to use her space
Min Soo's work is always amazing and slightly surreal. He uses color and food in his pictures and they look great.
Welcome to the group Isaac
Carlos' pictures are amazing. His pictures are always slightly creepy and he uses special effects to help him enhance his photos.
Reid's pictures are always slightly creepy. He uses bright colors and special effects to make his photos even creepier.

This is my final draft of my comic book. I edited it a little bit. This is the same comic book I've been working on for a while. I really enjoyed making the characters come to life in this comic book. I tried to make this all one story not a series of different stories.
