Urging the World to See

What to do for Class 2

For Class 2 Thursday, I want you to:

1/ Read "The World history of Photography" (you can check it out from the Library) up to page 143. Pick 5 photographs that you like most among those pages, photography then as well as you can, and post then on your blog writing a short commentary for each of them. See the Website guideline posted here in order to find a basic how to about posting on your blog.

Additionally to the website guidelines in regard to your blog page and this assignment:

  • Except for Allison whose blog I took as an example, all of you need to delete the first entry that is on your blog and that I created originally to make sure it worked.
  • Turn auto-resize off in the page inspector which comes when you click on this button:
  • Then click on this tab in the page inspector. You can see on this image the image resizing menu and the option turned off:
  • If you do copy and paste text as Lily was inspired to do, do not just paste, instead do Edit/Paste as plain text.

2/ Take a few photographs of whatever appeals most to you of what you know already of the town. Think of really the cream that you want to show to mom and dad or whoever else about how cool this town is. It could be really anything, people, architecture, cars, you name it. Select anywhere between 3 and 10 and put them in your "large album " folder. Make sure that they are 600px wide, not more.

Then copy and paste the 2 photographs that you like best out of these images from the large album, into your select album.

NOTE: You will need first to remove the photographs that I put in your folders for testing. Just delete them as I showed yesterday,both in the actual folders, and then in the album page in rapid weaver. Remember that you should create a hierarchy in your album folders, some sort of order that has a logic, the one you will choose. And then upload.

That's it for now, but it is just the beginning. My best wishes.
