Looking at Yourself

I thought this would be a good fit for this assignment and would add a twist to it. No, I’m not a triplet. I staged this photograph and did some manipulation. Each of the three “Megans” here shows a different side to my personality. The Megan driving is kind of …

Too many faces

This photo explains it all. I, Emily Toney, am guilty of making too many faces. Some good and others really bad….But! there will never be a dull moment around me, because of my faces…haha (very old photo; I am no longer blonde)…

Looking at Yourself

3 Stars http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/looking-at-yourself/

For this I, as Melody Bay, created my self portrait as an homage to Sasha Kellogg. This woman who survived great family tragedy and still managed to thrive and present herself with poise and grace. MB cannot bear to stray far from where her mother left her. …

Looking at Yourself (3 Points)

I chose to do the self-portrait visual assignment for my last 3 points. However, instead of doing a self-portrait of myself,  I made a self-portrait of my character, Sarah Mustard. I have not posted pictures of my character up until this point on purpose, because …

Self(ie)-Portraiture: Me, myself, I – You, yourself, we

Self-Portrait Through Every Day Items

    So I was thinking about the photo assignments and I decided to create a self portrait of myself through every day items.   The photo is what I created yesterday based on the visual assignment Looking At Yourself: This was worth 3 1/2 stars.   You …

Lost Souls Portrait

When you’re in a pinch…

I’m traveling today and tomorrow to lead some training on Flipped Learning and let’s just say it hasn’t been the smoothest trip so far.

First, I thought (my own fault, btw) we were doing Mac training. Turns out, we’re doing PC. So, I partitioned my hard drive and managed to …

Haydenraptor
