Blog post #3 Anthony Camacci

So far my progress with the locative music project is going decently well. I don’t really have any experience with garage band so I’ve been spending a majority of my time trying to figure out how it works and what buttons do what. Im getting more used to how it all works, but I think […]

During week 7 we read an article titled, “Picture This: The Impact of Mobile Camera Phones on Personal Photographic Practices” by Lisa Gye.

He tries to mostly keep his work to rooftop photos of Chicago and music festivals; this project kind of inspired me to think more about what my perspective is, and what I want […]

Blog #1: Photo-A-Day

During the past two weeks, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the current Photo-A-Day project. This week, with the topic of “Family”, I decided to plan out some photos. With a friend visiting from home, we had tons of plans to hike and see Colorado. My first photo is a photo of my dog that I have on […]

The Photo-A-Day project has been going really well. I still am unsure of my own ideas for my photos, though. I totally lack any imagination with some of my photos, almost like writer’s block. I think this happens because we have themes each week, which I like, but it forces me to evaluate what exactly […]

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 […]
