I chose this article because of the one color blue is used in the layout. I hear some customers on a tight budget may want a designer to design something using one color if he can save money.

The reason I picked up this flyer because of the color. I recalled Connie saying color is very important in graphic design. Color can grab someones attention. But these two colors are very interesting to me mute color and blue. The colors reminded me the rage I experience when my uncle bought my mom a blue chair to go into a brown office. I thought the chair clash. My cousin told me all I have to do is buy a throw pillow that has both blue and brown in it. So when I went to pick up the pillow the first color I went to grab the light mute color containing light blue and beige. I said to myself the pillow would blend together in harmony. I decided to get a bright colors in the pillows to make intensity and value contrast. Aiming to make contrast made a difference in the room. So I can see that I am learning how to adjust color.

After portfolio day, I was convinced to be organizing and to give myself more time to perform task because it takes longer than I imagine. I saw how I was not prepared. It hurt me. The worked that I printed was not the final draft. So I had something to show but it was not my best worked on the presentation. Even though it was not my best worked, I still saw that I had room to learn with my type. I felt like I barely touched the surface with type.
I talked to Greg Ross orabor.com. He told me it was a good thing that I was in school for another year so that I can work on my type. I was surprised and hurt to hear him say it.
After looking at his web sits I can see how I can get better. He plays with type. It was very interesting.
I asked for his suggestion he suggest that I read books on type and looked at different layouts in magazines. So I know this is an area that really needs to be developed. In art 308, I recalled reading the importance of type. It is really critical. It is not an area that I want to slack in or continue to be weak.

I lately have been noticing advertisement for a new radio station 97.1 FM an RB radio station. I noticed Rhima on the billboard after the beating she experience in several months ago. She was the center of public scandal. I really feel like entertainment leaders are making sure the abusive relationship does not get out of control. So they are putting in the media and hoping to intervene on domestic violence.
Another flower hopefully the last of the flowers from my collection of flowers. The lily the first flower in my collection of flowers was the lily from my front yard.
I later discovered shooting shots of flowers in my front yard creates wonderful light. Having the large trees over the flowers creates a warm flowing light.

Another rose, I felt a little self-conscious putting up another rose. But, Mr. Jones was concerned that I would get lucky shooting a shot once and struggle duplicating it. The two images of the same thing are to Mr. Jones. My ability to duplicate the shot means that I have a basic understand of the f-stop. I blur out the background. It took me years of practice critic to learn how to shot such an image. But hard works pays off.

The first image of the bouquet flowers that I got a positive response from my instructor represents the closing of one door to open a new door. The flowers were given to me as a gift as I left my job at UCLA as a preschool teacher assistant.
While taking Mr. Larry Jones color photo class at SMC, I began to sense that I landed on something good with my image of my flowers. When I went up to him for critique, the expression of approval that I saw in his eyes said that he like the picture even though it was overexpose. It was impossible to correct the overexpose image but the composition was nice. I had a talent with flowers.
Every so often I may go for a walk and take pictures of flowers in my community. The white rose is a sample of my neighborhood walk. I hope to go to walk in a nice garden such as the Hunting Library. I am attending Cal State Los Angeles, I hope to go to the Hunting Library during a break and focus my images on the flower garden. Some day I hope to go and shoot my heart out.
