research project

for my project i want the sunset to be the main focus. i would like to take pictures of the sky at exactly the time of sun set. i will be taking these pictures in the parking lot of the art building, more specifically the exact parking spot where i had fallen and broken my rib the week before. i will then take images of at lest 10 different sun set pictures and organize them and overlay them to form a dynamic design that's representational of the human rib cage with the indication of a broken rib i will make this image about 16x20 in size.

GIF response

Everyone who has an electronic device has seen or made a Gif this makes gif extremely sociable, all ages can relate and find pleasure in watching gifs. They can start conversation between many parties and can be viewed in many formats. Gifs are also a great way to express feeling through pieces since the subject matter is moving. Gifs are welcomed to anyone who wants to create an image that will express an emotion or thought through moving subjects. Because gifs are democratic because anything can be a gif, and anyone can make one. This to me makes gifs an amazing form of digital art that creates an endless way to make original ideas.  The low-tech methods of gifs make me feel that it’s an art that really is open to anyone. The simple fact that gifs look and are low-tech form of medium it helps relieve pressure of ascetics. However, focus more on the mechanics the subjects will move and how long they will continue to move.

writing response 2

              Living in a world full of different types of digital processes, I’ve never been in or seen a real dark photography room.  I have only been aware of photo editing in programs like Adobe Photoshop. I never knew that Photoshop was basically just a digital dark room that’s easily obtainable by anyone with a computer. Since then, millions of people have been able to edit and distort images to change the context. As well as changing the meanings from their original design or moment. Before in a dark room the process would take much longer and would take lots of practice, and trial an error. With Photoshop, basically anyone can edit images with very minimal practice and getting rid of trial an error due to the digital processes of the program. 
              Digital processes have greatly improved the ability to change and enhance images with the realism society desires. Most changes between dark room and digital processes are implied like being able to everything you can do in a dark room on the computer, in a fraction of the time. These assumptions are proven to be true. Photoshop doesn’t just allow virtually anyone to have the power of a dark room at their fingertips. It also allows the user to create images with great accuracy and in a nondestructive manner. While before doing these things in a dark room would be very difficult unless having previous experience and skill in general.  These processes would also take days maybe weeks in a dark room while in Photoshop it can be only hours.
              Although the implied changes between dark rooms and digital processes are great and fantastic the real ones are far more important. When most people think of a dark room they go to red lights and flipping pictures in liquid, but there is much more to it. People editing images in a dark room are working with many chemicals that can be expensive and harmful. This is completely out of the picture when using digital processes. This makes the art of photo editing and developing no longer potentially dangerous. As well making it much more assessable to people who want to take part in the medium. Transferring the abilities of the dark room into to digital also makes it less expensive and more obtainable then the tools and chemicals that the traditional dark room.

              Some changes are smaller than the other like how certain cameras will develop a certain type of look to the image. This would make photographers plan their images and the way they look well before hand taking the picture. In a dark room, you wouldn’t be able to change the type of look the picture has, but in a digital process you can. Your able to change filters to great a specific way the picture looks like taking it on different cameras. With all these changes, you can see the benefit the digital world plays of traditional techniques. However, there will always be the art and tedious work that goes into editing and developing images in dark rooms that the digital process will never simulate.
