Experimenting with Feed Plugins

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Ok, so I have experimented with installing and downloading WP More Feeds and Flickr Feed Gallery. The only problem now is that I have no idea what to do with them now. I tried making the Flickr Feed Gallery a widget in my sidebar, simply to show some more of my favorite pictures on Flickr. […]

"The Daily Shoot" Challenges

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

An old adage in photography says if you want to improve your photographs, move closer. Fill your frame today!                                                                        Backgrounds are tricky. They can make a subject stand out or distract from it. Make a photo with a good background today.                      […]

My Proposal

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

As for my proposal, I have been thinking about what exactly I want to commit to every week. I have decided that although I would absolutely love to come up with a brand new “Twilight Zone” episode each week, I don’t think I have the time to commit to it. Instead of creating different episodes, […]

Web 2.0 Storytelling

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

Bryan Alexander and Alan Levine discuss at the beginning of their article how technology is becoming easier and easier for people to use and as a result, people can focus more on the “microcontent” as opposed to learning the complicated coding once needed to contribute to the Web. People are able to conveniently add information about any […]

"A Work of Art"

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

Ok, so I kind of put this together last night. I’m not very impressed with it unfortunately. It was really difficult trying to find pictures that expressed what I wanted to convey. If there was someone in one photo and I wanted to see another shot of that person doing something else, I had to […]
