Round 5 – Low poly and glitch pictures

Round 5 of our multimedia/technology is the most extravagant to me. This round, unlike any other round, we were given a three weeks project that student has the option to independently do any project that is associated with media using tools like Adobe.

I chose to learn how to make a low poly picture and a glitch photo using adobe illustrator and photoshop. Adobe Photoshop is possibly known to every great professional photographer and graphic designer, it has great tools that are frequently used for resizing, crop, replace, visual effects and correct the color of a digital photo. Illustrator is another one of the Adobe products. It is developed alongside adobe photoshop as a complementary, it provides more tools for drawing and illustration on a digital picture. It is used for logos, vector graphics, and cartoons.

I chose to do this as an individual, so I got no one to help. But it seems like the lady luck are attracted to me, I chose really easy projects that are to be found anywhere on youtube and any other media platform. Although the instructions are informative with information graphics, I still face some problems. I need to maintain full focus on both the video and practicing at the same time, I usually missed some steps. I have to do the whole project again in case of forgetting the procedures.

This glitched Jimin, one of my favorite K-pop idols.

Nevertheless, I still enjoy doing this adobe project because they help opens new possibilities.

Python Dictionary

Multimedia –  What is dictionary? When you search on google about dictionary generally, it says

a book or electronic resource that lists the words of a language (typically in alphabetical order) and gives their meaning, or gives the equivalent words in a different language, often also providing information about pronunciation, origin, and usage.”

 

It is the same or connect in some way hence it is called ‘python dictionaries’ it only matters on how you look at it.

 

Just like in the definition Python dictionaries are just like lists but not so much. Python are used in curly bracket, they are unordered and changeable, and, there is no duplicate items allows.

 

For examples :

thisdictionary = {

 “Occupation”: “Doctor”,

 “Age”: “18”,

 “Year of birth”: 2001

}

Python

Multimedia- Python is a programming language that is commonly used for developing desktop and web applications. Moreover, Python is designed with the feature to assist with the process of data analysis and visualization. Python is found to use for web programmings like Django, Zope, Google App Engine, and much more. In the same way, they are also used in desktop application such as Blender 3D and even for pygames.

During Multimedia/Technology class is in process of learning rules and the basic form of Python such as :

If statement-

a = 33

b = 200

if b > a:

 print(“b is greater than a”)

 

Elif statement-

a = 33

b = 33

if b > a:

 print(“b is greater than a”)

elif a == b:

 print(“a and b are equal”)

 

Else statement-

a = 200

b = 33

if b > a:

 print(“b is greater than a”)

else:

 print(“a is greater than b”)

 

For loop-

foods = [‘chicken’, ‘pizza’,  ‘soup’]
for food in foods:       
  print Current foods :, food

 

Break statement-

foods = [‘chicken’, ‘pizza’,  ‘soup’]
for food in foods:       
  if x == pizza:

   break

 

Continue statement-

foods = [‘chicken’, ‘pizza’,  ‘soup’]
for food in foods:       
  if x == pizza:

   continue

 print(x)

 

Range Function-

for i in range(100):

 print(i)

Photography!!

In this class, Cindy taught us about a basic lesson on how does camera work and how to adjust the setting such as :

Exposure- Determines how light or dark your photo will be

Shutter speed- Affects how motion is captured

Aperture- Affects depth of field

ISO-Affects image noise

And there is two type of camera which are DSLR and Mirrorless

Resource: Know, Now You. “Why You Should Hold off on Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras over DSLRs.” Techly, 23 Jan. 2014, www.techly.com.au/2014/01/04/mirrorless-cameras-rip-dslrs-still-need-mirror-ces-update/.

Here are some photos :

Digital Design

As the world keeps on developing, technology has made histories and effect every corner of the world. World War 2 is an example of using technology in a way to conquer the world, and health care, construction, education have required the help of technology.

This year we started to learn about Multimedia and Technology. Cindy (our teacher) taught us how to do research efficiently, by just identified and categorized the source to two main sources:

Primary Source: Diary, Recording or any type of sources that happened during that event
Secondary Source: Review, Magazine (possible), biography or any type of sources that are not experienced in the first-hand

After the research, she taught us, how to use Adobe Indesign, Lightroom, and photoshop.
