passion project term 4 checkpoint 1

For my passion project this term I and re decorating my bedroom down at my farm house (my soon to be home). I decided to do this for two reasons, the first one is because I love interior design and two because I want to make my room at the farm feel more like my home since it will be soon. I am probably going to use a couple of my dad’s power tools because I am getting new curtains and a bed and I might need to use it for putting them together. my project is targeted at people who enjoy interior design like me or just like changing around their room also like me. I am really looking forward to buying new decorations and furniture to brighten up my room.

 

 

 

passion project term 3 checkpoint 2

for my passion project I wanted to do a cushion for my bed. even though at some points I felt like I wanted to change, I stuck with it and I a glad that I did because I am very proud of my cushion. some challenges I faced was that the fabric frayed a lot so it was a bit hard at times but we finally got it done without any more fraying. we got over the challenges by zig zag stitching the edges and then trimming them at the end. if I did this again I would probably learn how to do the trim and zipper because my nana did that part for me.

I couldn’t put my video on. the file was too big. sorry 🙁

 

 

 

 

 

passion project term 3 checkpoint 1

For my passion project this term I am making cushions because I am re-decorating my bedroom and my mum is getting a new couch that she wants some for. I am going to make a time lapse video of me making the cushions and a little journal where I am going to plan everything. to make the time lapse video I want to use my dad’s Go Pro or my phone because I will need my computer for research. my project is probably targeted at people who like interior design and sewing. I am really looking forward to getting the fabrics because I love looking at all the things that I think would look good in my bedroom or in the lounge room.

 

I would put a photo in but it didn’t work.

Final passion project blog for term 2

For my passion project I did a photo a day. I had a lot of fun taking the photos and putting them in a book and slideshow. I found putting the photos in a book a bit challenging though because if I wanted to move an image some where it wouldn’t let me or it would move the text too. I enjoyed taking the photos most because I love what you can do to make the photo look even better. Sorry there are no pictures, it wouldn’t work for me.

 

My passion project – part 2 – photo a day

So far I feel I have achieved a lot. I have many photos and my slideshow is coming along well. This week I will take my last few photos because I want to start working on my book and slideshow more. I have learnt to use filters and different camera angles to make my photos look really cool. What I have found challenging so far is remembering to take the photos each day, if my mum didn’t remind me I probably wouldn’t have anything to show.  The next thing I will do is make my book and slideshow because I really need to get onto that.        

these are some pictures I have taken so far.

My passion project – part 1 – photo a day

My passion project this term is photography. my goal is to make a little book at the end of the term that shows all my photos that I have taken each day. I also want to make a short slideshow that I could possibly put on my blog. I have been using my phone to take pictures of things that happen everyday. it doesn’t have to be an event you can do anything. people who might be interested in my project are people who love photography and might be inspired by this

Birke Baehr’s TED Talk

I found quite a few messages/takeaways in Birke’s presentation such as: buy organic produce, don’t buy genetically modified food (ewww) and would you rather pay the hospital for surgery or treatment because the chemicals poisoned you or your family or pay a bit more money for organic food and support local farmers. I think that the most important piece of information Birke shared was that the non organic food is bad for you and the animals so think before you buy food that could kill you.

Thomas Suarez Ted Talk

The main take away for me in Thomas’s presentation was that you don’t have to be an adult or a big company to make an app kids can do that too. I think Thomas communicated this through a little bit of humour which made me more interested. I think it was a smart idea do use an I pad with a script. because I know when I get nervous I forget what I am going to say, and I could tell he was a little nervous.

 

here is the video of Thomas Suarez’s Ted Talk.
