Hey guys 🙂 Here’s my 2nd ds106 post for this section♪
This time around, I decided to do a Visual Assignment called Averaging Concepts using Flickr. The assignment was to:
Take a concept, one word, and plug it into Flickr and take the first 50 images and average them using Photoshop or similar program. Step by step instructions available at http://is.gd/ku3UF
I went ahead to flickr to go chose my 50 images. When I had to chose my concept, I wanted something colorful so that the image wont just be a blob of gray or black image. Therefore, I went ahead and chose “Neon Lights”. So I selected 50 images that were colorful and portraying neon lights and saved them on to my computer.
Then, I used an application called Picasa to make my collage. First, I selected the 50 images I got for this assignment and put them into a collage.
Then I selected the Multiple Exposure effect
and it automatically created the final image for me. 🙂
I really thought this assignment was interesting because I never knew you can create such an image with so many different pictures. What I liked about my finished product was that it included colors 🙂 I’m such a color freak (because I love colors) so I was happy the image wasn’t just a gray blob 😀
