If you haven’t noticed, I like to start the year with a blog dedicated to returning to the basics.
We’ve got a really short post this week and it will be the last one that I write for this semester. So if you look for them every week, just know that I’ll be coming back again in January with more helpful thoughts/materials that you can use in your digital classroom!
Back by popular demand is another installment of movies to show in the classroom! Last spring I reviewed some of the short artist photo series from The Art of Photography YouTube Channel.
Photography is a form of art that can be used to capture anything in the world. It may not seem like it, but light plays an important role in what makes a good photo. It permits us to bring information and, more importantly, emotion in an image. In order to create a successful photo that people will enjoy viewing for many years, it’s essential to know how light can affect your picture.
Light, as you may know, is a fundamental part of photography. Often for beginners, the direction of light is accidental.
As you may already know, the literal meaning of photography is “drawing with light”. Light is the key ingredient in all photography, without which it would be impossible to capture images.
Digital collage is a great way to express yourself creatively, as shown by the five digital collage artists featured in our series over the last five weeks. All of these contemporary digital collage artists, whether they work with digital media or paper, are inventing new methods to make collage.
Surrealists perceive collage as a way to show what they consider the ultimate poetic process of the human psyche and the uniting of individual objects to create something new. This is where digital collage artist Vesna Pei (aka Becha) gets creative inspiration.
