6 rules of Photography

I really liked this clinic because I learnt how to take a really nice photo with a lot of different technique.

I not only learnt how to take better photos but I learnt why we take them like this whether it was that your eyes would be drawn to the focus or it was a cool angle it was all really fun.

 

Term 4 Design Reflesion

In term 4 this year me and Amy wanted to work together and we also wanted to make a cat in the hat marble roller so we did, it wasn’t that hard we warped a tube around a pipe though it was important to make shore that I want to bended because if it was the marble would not fit though it.

I think if I were to do this again I think I would use a bigger pipe so that It could go for longer and I also think we should of made it with other things than just a pipe and tube I might use a paper towel roll or a toilet paper roll or maybe just some more plane cardboard.

 

 

 

Cat In The Hat Marble Roller

Me and Amy decided we wanted to do a Marble Roller, so we did, first we started to draw it in our design book so we knew what to make and how to make it, this was pretty easy to do because before we started we did some research on other rollers for ides like these ones.

Then we coloured in our searchers and started on writing down our materials the we need to make it.

Here is a picture of the drawing we did in our design book and all the materials we needed, these may not be all the martials that we need to make it

materials

  1. cardboard

  2. goo

  3. funnel

  4. bucket

  5. marble

  6. clay

  7. tape

    how we were going to get it to work was we were going to get a  pipe and wrap a tube around it but we couldn’t find a tube long enough so we got two and taped them together but when we put the marble down it it wouldn’t fit so we had to untapped all we had done and tape it again and it still didn’t work.

yesterday I was sick and when I got to school Amy got it to work 

  1. we are going to use the cardboard for most of the track, we will use some toilet paper rolls to make the tunnels and we will use some paper towel rolls to hold it all up, we will also just use a bit of cardboard from a box or something like that, just plain cardboard.

  2. if you have seen the cat in the hat movie you will know that in the slide when the house falls in there is lots and lots of purple GOO, so when the marble falls down at the end it will fall in a bucket of goo.

  3. we need a funnel so that at the start of the marble roller we can put the marble in it, we are hoping that it will give the effect of like one of those coin donation things at the supermarket

  4. we need a bucket so we can put the goo in at the  end

  5. we have to have a marble because it is a marble roller

  6. we have to have to have clay so we can make clay people

today we started on our final product first I had to finish making our clay decorations but this only took about 5 minutes and I definitely found the cat in the hat the hardest to make because it had smaller parts in it.

here is a picture of what we have so far, we think it is finished.

this session me and Amy finished off making all our clay people and then painted it brown then we left it to dry but the next day we took a look and it had turned  GREEN and we had also painted some of it purple and that turned blue. so we had to think how we could make the green more brown and make the blue purple so we went to the maker space to find brown and purple. then we found some pom poms and got all the brown oune and all the purple 

Pinball Machine

Prototype

my partner wanted to make pinball cardboard machine but we didn’t know how to so we decided to do some research. first we looked on the internet, then on YouTube, we found a really helpful video from YouTube. the video explains how to make a pinball machine with a spring.

here is the video

what was challenging about the prototype was the spring because it needed  go through a perfect size hole through the box and the spring needed enough force to get to the obstacles.

we made ours a theme witch was a bakery and the chickens were the robbers.

If you get the ball in the hoop with a cupcake you earn that cupcake, if you get a hoop with a chicken in it you will have defeated that chicken from getting a cupcake.

This is a video of it working

Final product

we started on our final product by getting a really big bit of card board and folding the sides in so it looks like the photo

here.

 

This photo is of on of the sides of my pinball This side was a bit easier to make because 

machine, as you can see that some of the     we just had to fold it up and then glue it to the

gaps were to big to just glue together            other side and then it was secure 

so me and my partner Coco glued another  

smaller bit of cardboard on it to secure it.

Here is a picture of the spring   

 

To start with we had to make the base of the pinball machine, so we went to the maker space and found a big box, we folded the sides in but some of them didn’t meet up. So, we started by trying to hot glue them together, but the gaps were to big, so we had to get some more cardboard to fill in them in.
