How did you use new media technologies in

  1. 1. How did you use new media technologies in the construction and research planning and evaluation stages? Fallon Krampah
  2. 2. Media Technologies • Media technologies have become very useful when it came to the construction, research and planning of my final products. • Without them no one would be able to create successful products. • They have enabled me to learn new skills.
  3. 3. Blogger • Blogger has been a very vital place for my production of my product. On there I was able to record and effectively demonstrate all my work. Presenting my work online has proven to be more effective as it would allow me to post as I am going a lot or even do lots of my work on the actual site, instead of having to go back to a hard copy or a production log. • It is great to see the process that I have gone through from the first day that I have started till the end.
  4. 4. PowerPoint • This came very useful when it came to presenting finding of my research in a quick and easy way. All of my research findings would be recorded on PowerPoint and then posted onto my blog through ‘SlideShare’. • PowerPointe allowed the audience to easily understand and follow the development of my researches.
  5. 5. Photoshop CS5 • Using this software has been very essential to my making my final product successful. This software is filled with various tools and features which ensure success picture editing which has been very beneficial for me. Being able to control the brightness and contrast of my images has helped me to achieve a smooth and professional finish to the images. Airbrushing was also very helpful as it ensured that none of the flaws would turn out too obvious on paper.
  6. 6. Google • Google has always been a very useful tool/website when it came to finding appropriate information for my blog process and the production for my final product. • It has also helped me to teach myself how to statistically analyse my research findings and put them into percentage forms on Excel, by showing me different codes that can be used. • It has also helped me gain contact details from the studio that I wanted to use which I could not have found out anywhere else
  7. 7. Facebook and Instagram • These two social networking sites have helped me in gaining feedback from all different kinds of people. One way I would do this is post the images onto these sites and then collect all the ‘Likes’ and ‘Comments’ my audience would post onto the pictures. I then statistically analysed them and measured which theme was the most successful or popular according to my audience. • Facebook has also been very useful when it came to communicating with my models and artists about the location, time and date and what they needed to bring with them on the day of the photo shoot and what I expected them to do.
  8. 8. Youtube • Youtube has been useful as it helped me find videos that focused on the studio part in a photo-shoot which I had little knowledge about. There were many videos and tutorials which explained to me how to set my lights, what camera settings I should use to ensure perfect quality and what lenses I should consider purchasing. Youtube was filled with a variety of different videos that focused on many different aspects of photography and also editing images. • I have also found several videos that I have taught me how to direct my models in the photo shoot to ensure that they will deliver what I need them to deliver on set.
  9. 9. Canon 550D • This was the main technology which was needed in the creation of my portfolio. It allowed me to capture my work professionally and efficiently. It helped me to capture my thoughts and ideas in an appropriate way. I had also learned various buttons on the camera for future cases in which I may use my Canon again. I had used studio lights which worked simultaneously with the camera every time it captured an image. This was extremely useful and effective.
  10. 10. Screen Recorder • This was used to help me record a tutorial on how I edited the images with my own personal voice over. This was very efficient as it helped me to bring something new to my blog and help me gain better marks.
