Instructions for how to do the mashing friends and emojis assignment similar to mine below
Step 1: Find some friends who are willing to model/pose for you
Step 2: View the different emojis and select one to copy (you can select the emoji or your friend can select the emoji)
Step 3: After choosing the emoji, find a picture of that emoji online or take a picture of the emoji (I chose to take a blank picture on snapchat and insert the emoji as a sticker)
Step 4: The friend will now copy what the emoji is doing to the best of their ability. Take a picture of friend posing (you may want to take a few pictures and compare them to make sure the emoji and the model look similar)
Step 5: Using a photo collage app, upload the two photos next to each other to compare them. They can be side by side or one on top of the other. (I chose to use the app Layout app)
Step 6: Save your mash up creation and upload it for others to see
For this remix assignment, instead of doing a boomerang of my bed room, I did the opposite and took a video tour of my bathroom. I chose to do this because when I tried to think of something opposite of my bedroom, the first thing that I thought about was the bathroom. A boomerang is a short quick video that could be use to capture a shot of my room. To do the opposite of that, I took a video showing everything in my bathroom which was longer than two seconds.
If my character Deidra could have any superpower in the world, it would be to read people’s minds. She believes that if she were able to read people’s minds, she would be able to know how they truly feel about her and know when they are being genuine and when they’re being fake. Growing up Deidra struggled with opening up to others because she didn’t know if their intentions were good or not. At times she would be able to sense when someone was lying to her or hiding something. If she were able to read their minds, she would be able to automatically know how others felt without her assuming things.
For this assignment we were to mash up at least 2 photos showing a superpower that we wished we had. I chose the power to people’s minds. I found a picture of a superhero girl reading someone’s mind and mashed it with a photo of people sitting around talking. To do this, I used the app Photoshop mix and brought the photos together. I then cut the background and adjusted the photo to blend with the main photo. Using the app to mash the photos was a little difficult at first but as I played around with it and looked at the tutorials I began to understand how use some of the features. It’s still a work in progress.
For this assignment, we were to mash a photo of an emoji together with a photo of a friend imitating the emoji. I figured it would be fun to have multiple friends to try to help me. After finding a few friends who were willing to be my model imitators, I allowed them to each select an emoji that they wanted to imitate. After choosing their emoji, they each tried to copy the emoji to the best of their ability. When they were ready, I took a picture of them posing. For a few them, we ended up taking a few pictures to try to math it up to what the emoji was doing. Once I had my pictures of my friends, I went back and got pictures of the emojis. To do this, I took a black photo on snapchat and inserted the emoji as a sticker. When I was finished with that, I brought the pictures together using the layout app that I have on my phone. I was able to insert the two pictures together to create a comparison. I chose to create two photos where the two pictures were side by side and two pictures that were stacked on top of each other. After formatting the pictures, I saved them to my camera roll and edited the colors of each photo. I’m happy with the results that I got and had fun working with a few of my friends to complete this assignment.
To complete this assignment, we were to use a photo editing software to mash up our top 3 holiday celebrations. I chose to mash up 4th of July, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. To do this, I used a picture of a Christmas tree, a turkey, and fireworks. I then brought the photos together using the Photoshop mix app. Once I inserted the pictures, I edited a few of them so that the fireworks would blend behind the Christmas tree. I then added a background color to tie all of the images together. I chose to use my character Deidra as inspiration in creating this assignment.
3 of Deidra’s favorite holidays to celebrate is 4th of July, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. These are her favorite holidays because her family and friends usually come together to celebrate with each other. 4th of July is the main event during the summer time where they all get together, play games, cook out, and enjoy each other’s company. As it gets darker, Deidra’s family gathers outside to watch the fireworks. This is her favorite part! Her uncle Bobby is always in charge of fireworks and he usually gets the huge ones and sets them off for her family.
For thanksgiving, Deidra’s family always goes to her grandmother’s house for dinner. While there, Deidra usually helps prepare the food in the kitchen along with her mother, aunts, and grandmother. One year, Deidra was “in charge” of making the turkey. When she went to grab the turkey out of the box, instead of finding one that was ready to be put in the oven, she found a live one that started chasing her around the house. Now every year, Deidra’s family brings up that memory and then they watch the video of her being chased around the house. After thanksgiving dinner, the family rests up and prepares for an evening of shopping.
The next day, after everyone has finished shopping and had leftovers for lunch, Deidra’s family goes out to pick a Christmas tree. Once they found the one that they like, they chop it down and take it back to her grandmother’s house to decorate. When decorating, they listen to Christmas music and hang ornaments, lights, and other decorations (some of which goes back to before Deidra was born). When they finish decorating, they sit back and watch Christmas movies. Later on Christmas Eve, the family returns to Deidra’s grandmother’s house for a gingerbread house competition. They end the night driving around looking at Christmas light displays.
This assignment was one of my favorites. To complete it, we were supposed to come up with 5-10 words and then do a Google image search on the words we selected. When doing the image search, we were to choose the image of one of the first visible photos for the word. I chose to use words that described Deidra. After choosing the words, I began looking for images and screenshot the ones that I liked. Once I gathered the images, I put them in the order that I wanted them to go in and I imported them into iMovie to create the word video. Once I formatted the video the way I wanted to, I added a song form my playlist and added it to the background. This assignment was simple but enjoyable.
