Painting to Life Project

For our painting to life project, Rachel and I used the painting Q Train by Nigel Van Wieck. The painting reminded us a lot of being in the DC metro and how you often see people looking sad or what not, so we decided to come up with a backstory to that. Rachel plays a … Continue reading

Diversity Project

  For our diversity project, I decided to take Bianca to get a little taste of where I come from. She attended the Caribbean Circle Christmas meeting with me. I am from the Virgin Islands, born and raised, and Christmas down there is veryyyy different than in the states. Bianca heard a discussion on this … Continue reading

Last Visual Review: Spidey Sequence

Although now rebooted, the original Spider-Man series will always be my favorite. One thing I always remembered about watching them as a kid was the title sequences and how they made the films all the more memorable. I recently re-watched Spider-Man 2 and really liked the title sequence; it seems like the ultimate superhero movie … Continue reading

Self Portrait Project

This is a picture I took with my Drake CD. I think it represents me because I love music, all types, and this is hands down one of my favorite CDs that I listen to all the time. And yes, I still buy CDs. For this image I used motion blur and then photo filter … Continue reading

Picture #10: Silhouette

I took this picture of a tree set against some buildings in Adams Morgan while out and about DC and thought the silhouette shapes came out very nicely. You know what’s in the picture without seeing the actual objects in color, and the sky adds a nice pop.

Visual Review 9: The Weeknd’s Website

Relatively unknown until now, the Weeknd’s music is a fusion R&B artist from Toronto, discovered by fellow Canadian Drake. Since his music has just been remastered and released on iTunes, I decided to check out his site and noticed … Continue reading

Picture #9: Isolated

Isolated. Played around with some jewelry and I thought this was cute. It’s actually an earring that I lost the counterpart for, so it was isolated in that it had to pair, and I stuck it at the front and it made for a good picture.

Visual Review 8: Title Sequence

HBO is a channel that is known for shows that make big statements, and Boardwalk Empire announces itself every week with a sweeping, timeless main-titles sequence that establishes the character of Nucky Thompson and the tumultuous times evoked by the show’s period setting. To do this, the shows creators enlisted the help of company Imaginary Forces, the … Continue reading

Picture #8: Negative Space

  Negative Space. I thought it was really cool how this picture came out, because the darkness is encasing both the top of the concrete and the Katzen arts center. The negative space around these two objects allows them to stand out with a glow in the night.

Visual Review 7: The Social Network Poster

The Social Network was one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2010, seeing as how it tells the story of how what is arguably the most popular website, Facebook, came into existence. To do so, it chronicles the journey of Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg, a now infamous name. Zuckerberg is portrayed my actor Jesse … Continue reading
