Nichols chapter “Why are Ethical Issues Central to Documentary Filmmaking?” discusses the power of films (and people’s interpretation of films) to convey a likeness of the world, represent others, and argue a particular viewpoint.

I started my portfolio website this week using Square Space. I have never used Square Space before so there was a bit of a learning curve, but overall the program is pretty intuitive. I completed my introduction page and uploaded and explained 3 photo of the week images. I found it easy to upload the […]

For example, one of their taglines was “A vacation without a Kodak is a vacation wasted.” Sharing photographs is also a […]

“Death of the Cyberflaneur” by Evgeny Morozov explains how the modern internet changed the nature of browsing, and ultimately “killed” the cyberflaneur. Rather than being a site for casual strolling, the internet has become a site of utility and “getting things done.” Motozov explains that flaneurs once strolled through Paris slowly, with no obvious destination […]

This week I have been working on the found footage video assignment. I initially found it really difficult to get started on because I didnt have a clear idea of what I wanted to use. I spent a long time sorting through the found footage folder with no real direction. Once I decided that I […]

This week I have been working on the Photo-A-Day project. I have been having some serious issues with my flicker account, and had to remake it twice in order for it to work. Despite the problems I have had with flicker, it does seem like a good way to view photos and I learned you […]
