  1. Passion Project #Reflect

    June 17, 2018 by Joshua Whan

    Did you achieve what you originally set out to do?

    I think that I accomplished what I wanted to do I went out multiple times to take pictures at places like the Torquay beaches, the waterfront, the Yarra river and even just my backyard. I put the photos onto my computer and turned them into a slide show of the best. I also pick out my favourites printed them, and then laminated them so I could have something physical to show.

    What successes or challenges did you experience toward the end of your project?

    I found that it was quite hard to get out of bed on Saturday mornings as early as ten to six just so I could catch the sun before it got to high in the sky but it really payed of because I got some amazing pictures from it. Getting the right technique is trickier than it might seem such as getting the right light for your picture the rule of thirds and even finding different types of pictures and to get each kind looking its best.

     How did you overcome the challenges? 

    I always went around with my dad so if I ever needed help with something, I could go ask him and he would help me make that picture better because he’s a much better photographer than me. I think that some of the things he taught me will help me when I’m taking pictures when I’m older.

    How can you extend your learning if you were to continue with this project?  

    I think if I go out more often at a regular basis with my dad then I could improve my skills with photography so much more  and I would have great fun doing it and the best things is that I live in a place and around places that look beautiful so that gives me lots of opportunities for great photography.

  2. Digital Etiquette

    June 4, 2018 by Joshua Whan

    In this lesson we watched a video that talked about how to act on the internet which is called netiquette this is just play on words for etiquette on the internet or social media. The video talks about this because sometimes when they’re talking on the internet because they’re not talking face to face they forget the manners the would use in real life and start acting like they’re invincible and forget to be kind, courteous and respectful to each other.

    When people act like this and start writer mean comments to each other this is called flaming and it can become into a flame war if the other person gets annoyed and responds back in the same way. Then it is just a storm of insults getting thrown back and forward.

    Sometimes there are people that go around on the internet searching and trying to start flame wars these people are called trolls.

    When you are online everyone one around you is anonymous this means that you have no idea who they are even if they say who they are you still can’t be sure if they are telling the truth or not this is why you should never trust strangers on the internet.

    When you are talking to people on messages or other social media platforms you should always make sure that they know what you are trying to say and that they don’t take it the wrong way. The way this could happen is if you use abbreviations of words or shortened versions such as IDK instead of I don’t know or BTW instead of by the way. The person reading might not get it either if you spelling and grammar is not good
