Daily Creates #5

February 15, 2013

Here are the three daily creates I did for week 5:

February 11, 2013: Take a photo of someone other than you using your favorite type of technology.

Me and Taka on Photo Booth

Now, this daily create was a little ambiguous because of the wording. It could mean two different things: 1) take a picture of someone that is using a phone/laptop/video game console that you like or 2) take a picture of someone with your favorite type of technology (i.e. your iPhone, laptop, Photo Booth, poloraid camera, etc.) For this daily create, I went with the latter and took a picture of me and my boyfriend through one of my favorite photo-taking mediums Photo Booth. However, I chose to keep this photo in its purest form instead of messing with it since I actually liked the photo.

February 13, 2013: Take a picture of something new. Like shiny.

V-day gift

I definitely feel like I fulfilled all of the criteria for this daily create. The item I chose was both new (got it as a present for Valentine’s day) and shiny (look at those shiny stones!). Now, I normally don’t like using filters for photos, but I decided to test it out on this one to see what it would look like since I was uploading the photo from my iPhone. I kind of wish I chose a different filter since this one made the photo a little bit out of focus compared to its original, but I guess that’s what experimenting is about!

January 19, 2012: 1 Take Tongue Twister – Record the following tongue twister in one take.

For this daily create, I wanted to do something exciting, so I hit the randomize button and got this one. Man, was this hard! I think it might be from all of the presentations, enunciating exercises, impromptu speeches, etc.  I had to give in all of my Comm. courses, but I think I did a decent job. Here’s the tongue twister we had to recite on just one take:

Luke Luck likes lakes.
Luke’s duck likes lakes.
Luke Luck licks lakes.
Luck’s duck licks lakes.
Duck takes licks in lakes Luke Luck likes.
Luke Luck takes licks in lakes duck likes.

Before you make fun of me, give it a try! It’s a lot harder than it looks, believe me!
