Image Compositing

Image Compositing is a photo being combined of visual elements from other sources into a single images. Image compositing was created for photos to have an illusion and trick people. Rule of thirds is used by alining a subject or object with guide lines and the intersecting points. It can enhance the composition by balance of the image. When you take a picture and it is centered, its not rule of thirds. All types of things go through a photographers head. Who are they gonna take the photo of, what are they gonna take of it, where are they gonna take it, when there gonna take it, and why are taking the photo. Photos shouldn't always be edited. Some photos should show how natural and beautiful there are.

Visual Statement


The topic we chose was staying focused. I chose this topic because I wanted see the many different ways how people get distracted. People can be distracted from there phones, friends, drama, social media, and etc. This topic is important to me and patrick because we can get distracted as well and want to let people know how you can stay on task. The goal of this project was create a 2-3 minute video about our visual statement that gives our personal view about it and how it related to our audience.

You have to balance out your audio because if you have a visual with a lot of sound it will be hard to hear the script recording so you have to balance them out.

During this project our biggest challenge was being able to stay focused and being able to come up with things to finish the script. We knew we had do it so so we just put a lot of thought in our topic. I think patrick was the driving force in our project because literally every-time i saw him in school he would give ideas and say we need to finish. I think I helped the process by giving so many ideas for our topic because I go through struggling to focus everyday. The enjoyable part of this project was being able to do a topic that means something to me

Modern Art Movement

Pop Arts reintroduction of identifiable imagery was a major shift for the way of modernism. Pop art artist wanted to challenge tradition of assuming that an artist's use mass-media and popular culture visual elements could be be considered a fie art. And pop art was thought to be a art style that returned to the realities of everyday lives. I think pop art is a fun art movement because you have to be a creative thinker.

Workplace Safety

The goal of this project was to show how to avoid stress and burnout, in a 60-90 second instructional video, But it had to be entertaining and humorous. So me and teammates Lester, Tessa, and Mazy took the time to make sure we made the video as best as it could be. We made sure to research and come up with ideas for the video. During this project I felt like Tessa deserved the most recognition because she ensured we reach the goal of the project.

I think the biggest takeaway from this project was how we learned how to avoid stress and burnout, by working with a purpose, and learn to mange stress. Also video production, we learned how to use the camera and edit correctly. Our highest critique was entrainment value. And our lowest critique was clarity audio. I think we could've made the video better if we more time to edit.

ACO 7.1 Analyze the beneficial effects that safe and healthy work habits have on productivity that improve workplace efficiency.

Art & Design

                                                                   Photo Credit: Grieslightnin
The elements I used in this project was line drawing and texture value. I used line for outlining the object in the picture. And used texture for the shade around the object in the picture. We used different size brushes for each element, for line we used a size 15 and for texture we used a size 5, but they both used 75% hardness. For the line all we did was trace the object. But for texture we used different designs, and I did cross hatching. During this project I found that the part I enjoyed the most was the outlining the the object, because it was the easiest. The part found the most challenging was texture, because it had to fade.

I got this photo from, some key elements used in this photo were value, texture, and space. Some similarities and differences between my still life and landscape are that both use texture and value. Some differences are that the still life uses lines. And landscape uses more of value. During this project I stuck more to the basic process.

The portrait is used was of my brother. The picture was taken at AT&T, it is of my little brother, this photo means a lot to me because I care for him. This project uses a couple of elements of art such as line, shape, value, texture and color. I think my critique

Audio Productions


Intonation is the fall or rise in our voices and inflection is the way we have change the form of the words. These were both an important part in this project. These were ways how to express the setting of the play. My role was to be a part of a game show. I was required to answer the questions from chapter three as if it was a real game show. When we finished we knew that rehearsal would be important. But as game show host they tend to mess up, but end up rolling with it.

I think my team and I did great. We didn't have a to restart, we used intonation and inflection very well during the project. I think we kept our audience very engaged. During the project we didn't really have any obstacles, except for one of or group members not being there. But that didn't stop us, so we just worked through it. If I had to do this project again some things we could improve would be to, make sure everyone came. Make the script a little shorter.

Proprietary Information

                                                   Image from:

Copyright infringement is when take someones else work and your using as if it was your work. If you are caught doing copyright you could pay a fine ranging from $200 to $150,000 or going to jail for 5 to 10 years. But you can avoid those fines by getting permission first. You can contact the owner and maybe talk something out and see if payment is required. Or you could write an agreement to get permission. One example is if wanna criticize someones work you should be able to without asking they. Another example is

Confidentiality is when you want something to be kept secret or private from being hacked or scammed. There are a couple of things you want to be kept secret in your life like, your social security number. Another thing you would to kept private would be your phone number. And you should keep your birthday and location private. Social media could leak your private information for potential breaches in confidentiality. Censorship is the suppression or prohibition of any part of a book, film, new, and etc. That they are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to security.  The 1st amendment and the 5th amendment are both ways you could say stuff that you don't want to say.

Market Shifts

Market shift is the quantity of demand or supply at a balanced price. Sometimes the change of the quantity or demand could be given at a given price. Or it could be a bunch of regular people gathering to purchase and sale of provisions, livestock, and many other commodities. We use technology all the time, so now instead of buying stuff in stores, we can buy things online from amazon, eBay, craigslist, and etc. We can also download music, movies, weather apps, news apps, and a lot more apps all for free.

The skill I would like to develop is speaking, and speaking is how well you can communicate with others and tell them information. When greeting tourist and explaining attraction can be a great way of doing that. Another skill I would like to develop would be active listening, active listening is how well you can listen and understand what people are saying to you. One way is by working at a restaurant and taking orders from a costumer. A skill I would like to improve is active learning, active learning is how well you can find ways to understand all types of new information. You can do that by reading newspapers articles on new business and thinking about related job opportunities.

ACO 2.1 Analyze how shifts in market affect changes to media and design.
ACO 2.2 Evaluate how changing communication needs of a market are addressed by media and design.
ACO 2.3 Propose media and design solutions that address the changing needs in global markets.

Communication Strategies


When I am with my friends and family I am always talking to them. But when i'm with my teachers in school I am very shy and when standing in front of the class. When I'm with my family I speak with a more respectful voice, but when with my friends I'm more hyper. In school I am more quiet. I feel more comfortable when I'm with my family and friends, why because I've known them for a long time.

My first career cluster could be agriculture, food and natural resources. The agriculture industry is looking to be a steady job for the next couple of years. The industry is looking to expand more due to development of improved technologies. Careers that require workers with technical skills such as technicians, operators, and mechanics along with organic framer will hold the best job prospects. My second career cluster could be hospitality and tourism. This industry will also be remaining steady with little to no charge. Higher degrees and excellent customer service skills with food services and some experience with upscale luxury hotels will provide you with best job opportunity.

ACO 4.1: Devise communication strategies to promote individual accountability and team success.
ACO 4.2: Use effective oral, written, and non-verbal communication skills to facilitate positive interactions.
ACO 4.3: Apply appropriate interpersonal skills to establish positive and sustained relationships with clients.
