How are we already on week 4?! Time flies when you’re drowning in homework and severely sleep deprived. I was really excited for this week since I have ZERO photo editing experience. I realized that it is definitely not as easy as it looks and I am once again not good at it.
We started off our week with a reflection of previous photography experience after reading Becoming a Better Photographer and Photography and narrative: What is involved in telling a story? Check mine out below!
Previous Photography Experience
Then we picked a movie to analyze and try to pinpoint different aspects of good photography. Of course I chose Tangled, and it worked really well!! If you’re having issues identifying the different aspects of photography read my post below, I tried to make it clear & helpful!
Breaking Down “Tangled”
Then I did a fun little What’s in your bag? exercise for Manny. I thought about what I as a mom and nanny would need if I were a super manny. It ended up being pretty practical! Read it below!

Then we got free roam of the visual assignments. I chose two 4 star assignments and a 2 star assignment. My first 4 star assignment involved some photo editing and was pretty tricky. My perfectionist self is still not happy with it but it will do while i get used to the software! Again, I love Tangled so I used that movie again for my Family Friendly Billboard assignment below.

Next I took my editing skills a step further and completed the Forrest Gump Project. I put myself into Martin Luther King Jr’s “I have a dream” speech. This was a bit harder since it was black and white but I think it turned out better!! Again, you can get to it by clicking the post below.

Lastly, I had a bit of fun with the Bucket List assignment. I picked my top 4 “bucket list items” and found pictures to go with them. I ran into an issue at the end… Check it out below to see what happened!
My Bucket List Collage
Throughout the week I did 3 daily creates.
On Tuesday we did pre-internet memes, which immediately made me think of this spongebob gif.
On Wednesday (Talk like a pirate Day) I struggled a bit… until I embraced my inner Jack Sparrow. While he can be wildly inappropriate, he sure is amusing.
On Thursday we had to share or create a horror sound. I wandered around trying to make noises out of various things before I came across my hairbrush that sounded eerie. To me it sounds like tons of spiders crawling towards me… what do you think?
That was it for my Daily Creates!!
Last but not least, I did my first ever Photoblitz. It was harder than I thought it would be. Check out my process below
And that wrapped up week 4!
Happy Friday everyone! Enjoy your weekend!
