Getting Connected-Facebook as a promotion tool

Picture13

Tanya Anderson from lovely greens gave a talk on her own experiences

she highlighted that she had two site,

her own

and Face book

she pointed out that the Facebook site led many of her new clients to her site and updated her existing clients on new products that she had available.  she also pointed out the importance of the statistic of each site in following trends and being adaptable to keep her product relevant and salable.

this information has proved invaluable as following the statistics on my blog has highlighted the areas of my working practise that has produced the most interest.

it should allow me the opportunity to keep my work available and sellable.

Getting Connected- Initial Links

Picture3

  • my first point of contact to the wider world
  • as a first point, it proved the value of a uniformed and simple to use format
  • the menus vary from the construction stage
  • so was not aware that it is difficult to see all the menus
  • re editing has highlighted that some of the added blogs are not listed under the correct heading
  • editing this has proven and issue as the site itself has had problems
  • the new look contains a more generic logo which should be easy to identify with
  • I may in cure difficulties when i try to band this logo to the you tube channel banner

Creative Identity- Research/Developing

007006008

once I had decided to focus my project on an illustrated book of Manx myths i began to accumulate a collection of both primary research and secondary.  the primary consisted of illustration, line drawings of places and areas with connection to each of the poems.

in doing this i believe i have improved on the compositional elements of the illustrations.  making each more readable and understandable from the audience perspective.

without the research the illustrations would not have strong enough links to the actual areas, location and places that give some of the pieces their impact.

Jim Henson was born James Maury Henson on September 24, 1936, in Greenville, Mississippi. At a young age, Henson was drawn to the arts. His maternal grandmother, a painter, quilter and needleworker, encouraged his creative passions, including his puppetry. Well before his teen years, Henson was performing puppetry for audiences, including his fellow Cub Scouts. His youth was also spent toying with different visual mediums, including television, which he adored. A major influence of his childhood was TV puppeteer Burr Tillstrom, of the show Kukla, Fran and Ollie.

I hope that in one or two of the filmed pieces we can convey a serious subject in a similar style and mannerisms to my Nan. she could be brash in talking about a subject not because she wanted to offend or upset but because she genuinely did not either know about it or how to discuss it. many subjects today are discussed and understood openly that an older generation may not be aware of. so when your next on the bus and a more senior person is “giving out” about a subject, consider this. they are basing their opinions on how they understand the world and what they are used to things being. be patient and try to be sympathetic as the more senior members do not all surf the web and do not understand fully

how you speak

gender identity

younger culture ie. drugs

as you grow you really learn one main lesson, which thankfully my Nan taught me, you never stop learning something new and sometimes shocking

i hope the characters make the audience aware, whilst they laugh

AFTER MIND MAPPING AND LOOKING AT THE CREATIVE MATRIX I BEGAN WITH THUMB NAILS
002
EVEN THOUGH I MAY NOT NEED THEM I BEGAN REVEWING NOTES AND RESEARCHING TECHNICAL PRODUCTION ,I.E. STUDIO LIGHTING
005
GENERATING LIST OF EQUIPMENT AND WHAT TASKS IT MIGHT BEST BE USED FOR
006
WHEN UNCERTAIN OR LACKING ANY EXPIERIENCE I ATTEMPTED TO COLLATE AS MUCH RELEVANT INFORMATION OR FACTS
007
RESEARCHING CULTURAL AND HISTORICAL SOURCES FROM BOTH TIBET AND CHINA
008
I ALSO GATHERED CONTEMPORARY PROTEST AND POLITICAL INFORMATION
009
ALSO RESEARCH TYPOGRAPHY ANOTHER AREA I LACK EXPERTISE
010
IF LIKE ABOVE (ENAMBELING) I FIND AN AREA I HAVE NOT ATTEMPTED I ALSO RESEARCH HOW AND THEN SORT OUT WAYS AND MEANS TO TEST OR TRY IT
011
IF AS WITH ANIMATION WHICH I HAVE DONE BEFORE, I STILL COLLATE EXSISTING SOURCE INFORMATION AND ADD NEW IN AN ATTEMPT TO ENHANCE WHAT I KNOW
012
SOME RESEARCH WAS MORE ABOUT DETAILS I.E COLOUR SCHEMES, OR RELATING A PROJECT BACK TO IT CONTEMPORARY OR SOURCE RESEARCH

THE TECHNICAL SHEET ABOVE HAVE ALLOWED ME THE OPPITUNITYTO DEVELOP MY PHOTOGRAPHIC SKILLS AND I HAVE NOW BOOKED A TUTORIAL TO HELP ME LEAN ABOUT DEVELOPING FILM.

Photography- Exploring Reflection

can you see the face?

can you guess what i am?

playing with mirrors

each of these images have one thing in common they are all used using reflective surfaces with a camera to focus on patten shape and texture

img_8926img_8928

in reflection this could be a flexible and challenging way to develop my photography. though it does not tie into my zine or creative projects it opens up a new area that i can explore.

Photography-Exploring Daylight Illusion

by setting a digital camera to no flash and then focusing on a light source the camera creates a highlight or light haze around the image  even though each of the images were taken aften o’clock on a dark night the camera has been able to generate the illusion of different times of day and even made the selected items appear as if it is earlier in the day. the only difficulty in using this process is that the camera is unable to focus properly and can not focus creating a difficulty in blurring. it is possible to steady the image using a tripod but he process does not work as well free hand
