Morning All! Hope you are well, just dropping by with Online Finds for you this morning. A bit of this and a bit of that… Enjoy 🙂
Even though I had a huge break from posting on here the last couple of months, I was still online and did manage to get through a few links thatI had saved in my ‘Reading List’. I have a really bad habit of just seemingly ‘collecting’ links and never getting around to actually reading the articles! Does anyone else do that? I’ve got about a hundred things on there at the moment so I’ve put aside some time each week to work my way through them… for now though, here are a few that I got to recently – enjoy 🙂
Morning 🙂 How are we all today? I’m…. okay.
Not really in the mood for super long chats today, so lets jump straight in to the interesting bits and pieces I’ve come across online lately…
Hi All, How’s things? I’m not too bad at the moment. Yesterday was a pretty good day health-wise and so far today is going well too, so minimal complaints from me 🙂
As we eagerly anticipate this coming long weekend, I thought I’d share a few online finds I’ve come across lately to keep your mind off the count-down till Friday afternoon lol 🙂
Hi All, how are you going? Is it strange that I often start my posts like that? I think it is a little, but it also feels a little strange just jumping straight into talking… who knows whats right nowadays… annnnyway… I’ve been okay, having okay days and not so okay days with the auto-immune/IBD… yesterday wasn’t great and today is a not so good a day either, but it’s better than others… one positive is that I had planned an annual leave day today to work on some assignments so I knew I didn’t have to go in to work today, or work from home – much less stressful, and I’ve still been able to knock off a bit of study work. It’s all just a bit of a lets-see-how-it-goes at the moment…
I thought for today I’d do another round up of what I’ve been reading and checking out online lately…
In a Learning Activity I had to do a little while ago I had to choose one design element and discuss how it could be used to engage an audience and create meaning… and give two examples.
After checking out his work, I picked texture as my design element…
Texture as a design element is often used to engage a viewer through dramatic effect. In a medium such as photography where a 3D scene or environment is turned into a 2D image, clever use of texture allows the viewer to imagine the 3D scene.
Two examples of great uses of texture are two photos centered on sand, by Ansel Adams. In “Surf Sequence #2” the texture of the sand stands out and allows the viewer to sense the graininess of it, whereas in “Sand Dunes, Oceano, California”, Adams is conveying the texture of the ripples – peaks and valleys – of the sand on the dunes. Adams uses sharp focus and high contrast to help convey the textures within his images.
Another day, another sick day Ahh, so last week’s doctors appointment has me seeing another specialist tomorrow – hopefully then I’ll have some answers. I’m still slowly working my way through my course, but as you can imagine it can be pretty difficult to concentrate when you’re not feeling very well, so today I have another collection of online finds for you… luckily I have a whole stash of these to share 🙂
