Here are the final photos!! I am really happy of the outcome of my work, and I learned a lot from this project. (I added meanings under each photo in the gallery)

Here’s a list of things that I learned:

-Anti-gravity photography techniques

-That I need to buy my own tri-pod

-Long exposure techniques

-More advanced Photoshop shortcuts and editing techniques

-Photo manipulation


1. 30 Websites to Lose Yourself Into

The link gives a list of all the websites to go to. I thought all of these websites were really creative because they were unique and entertaining. I even thought some of them were useful such as the Noisli because it generates background noise to help you study/focus on a task.

2. LIFX Light Bulb

I thought this light bulb was really cool because it is a multi-colored LED smart bulb that can change from the tip of your smartphone. Now, you don’t have to turn a light off from a light switch; you just need your smartphone!



3. Hovding: Airbag for Cyclists

I thought this was a creative solution for wearing a bike helmet–one that can’t be seen until you fall. I don’t wear bike helmets anymore simply because I don’t like how they look…they look silly even though I know they do have a safety purpose. I would definitely wear a Hovding if I got ahold of one. These even look stylish for men and women!

4. Iota- Folding Toilet

This new toilet design is really neat because it not only saves water when flushing, but also saves space because it can fold in itself. Pretty neat!

5. Ooho

This concept is really cool because it is a possible alternative to plastic bottles for water. This concept uses a membrane of algae to enclose the water. I would love to see this become a reality in the near future.

1. Plastic Cleaning Ship

I thought this concept was a creative solution for cleaning up the ocean. I am really passionate about ‘going green’ and reducing/recycling our materials, so I think this teenager is on the right path to try to help out this global problem. This ship would collect all the plastic in the ocean and then be recycled.



2. Quit Your Job Advertisement

These advertisements are really creative because they are novel and are eye-catching. They also have an edge of humor, which always makes everything more delightful. These advertisements are saying that life’s too short to work at a job you hate: quit that job and do something you love. The photographs for each scene convey that message perfectly in a humorous way.



3. 3D Nail Portraits

I decided to post this link because I’ve never really seen people create 3D portraits of people. Using various colored nails is a clever way to accomplish this.



4. Pocket Sized Printer

This mini printer is such a creative product! I like how small and portable it is because I always run into the problem of needing a document printed in a short time with no printer around me. With this pocked-sized printer, that problem would definitely be solved. I think this product has a lot of potential for the future market. 


5. Creative Sketchings

I am a big fan of these sketchings, mostly because I love how abstract and expressive they are. I also think these drawings are really unique because of its attention to detail and the fact that my eye is constantly moving around the page to look at everything.


This past week, I took Ashley into Pammel Woods for our first photoshoot. I’d say it was pretty successful! I am now in the editing staging of picking out the best photos to stitch together. This process is somewhat tedious because I have to sort through all of the photos to make sure they will work together and the composition is good. Here are a couple of photos that I chose to edit.
