from the journals: week 17

Every so often, I’ll come across a line or sentence from the journals that seems to sum up what the student was trying to say so succintly, that I have to stop and read it again.

This quote came out of Journals Week 17

I have moments in my life when beauty rises up to me, usually when I’m walking alone, not paying attention to anything, not thinking or listening to music or talking. This is when I start to look at the world around me and I realize how beautiful it is. I think you need to be silent (in your mind) for the world to show itself to you

this week’s assignment, yin and yang

  

For this week’s assignment, you will do an assignment where you acheive the balance between yin and yang in two photographs.

Wikipedia Entry on Yin and Yang

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yin_yang

So one picture where you have the normal version of an image, and the other side where you have an inversion of the image.

Remember Filter/Invert? This is a perfect use for that filter in Photoshop.

Make a new document that is 600 x 600 pixels. Have one half be the normal version of the image, and the other half the inverted version of the image.

this week’s photo challenge: chaos or free for all


Some people hate chaos, they see the neccesity of order in all things, they see place for everything and that everything should be in its proper place.

I see things a little different than that, I embrace chaos sometimes, and this week I encourage you to do the same.

So for this week’s photo challenge, I turn the reigns of control over to you, and let you the students decide what picture to submit for this week’s photo challenge. So that’s it. It’s chaos, it’s a free-for-all, its whatever you want it to be. Just make sure its good, and that it hopefully tells a story, and has a clear message to the viewer.
