Career Goals

After Graduation I would like to get an internship that leads to a job. My Major is Communication Deign in the Broadcast module. Although I do love that I like to consider myself a jack of all trades I’d like to work in many different aspects in the design world. Id like my portfolio to show that. If I do something from the broadcast module, I really believe that shooting Pictures of different lighting showing different moods or portraits of people with a good background can show the aspects needed to make a video very appealing. a specific idea can be making a mini set with lighting that could show lighting on a set. Clear portrait shots that can show that i have good composition with people on screen and camera.

Gallery Report

The visit to Aperture was very interesting. Especially to find out they They had published the famous picture of the twins, I was excited to venture further into the gallery. These were all works from China. the China books really showed how westerners tried to portray the Chinese. There were books used as propaganda that showed the same events in very different ways. One country would show the glorification of going to war and the other country would show the destruction and how horrible they are. One that stood out to me was the pictures of the destruction with illustrations of bright red fire along the edges of the photos. It really made the photos feel more intense. There were illustrations and photos showing industrial and common people growth in China. Some of which felt Worlds Fair-esque and believed to be only for people in the higher-ups of China. Even with the wall of Mao you can see how communism has changed China. The Gallery shows much of China’s propaganda. I was found it all to be very interesting.

At the Second Gallery it was different but again very interesting. it followed various tribes with very rich photos. The First photo walking in was my favorite. It was a portrait of two tribesman by the waterfall. the one standing appeared to be older, wiser. The other appeared to be younger, he is sitting but livelier. The lighting and the colors really stood out to me. it was a very powerful photo with great composition with the waterfall right behind the tribesman standing on a rock. I really liked the photo that was a wide shot as well with all the tribes women. They Almost looked like warriors and were seemingly a very important part of the group. All the photos were very powerful and well done with great lighting and composition while still making i feel natural.


These two poems may be very different but they have somethings that are in common. One of which is that cars are sort of the topic of conversation. In the First poem by e.e. cummings the person is talking about how much he loves his car. “it was the first ride and beleive i was happy to see how nice and acted right up to the last minute coming back down by the Public Gardens I slammed on the internalexpanding externalexpanding breaks Bothatonce and brought all of her tremBling”. When first reading, it is possible to think that the man is just talking about his ride. The tone in which he is portraying this is in a sexual manner.

In the second poem by Phillip Levine has a different metaphor for what cars represent, especially in Detroit. There was a lot happening in Detroit and that has much to do with the message he is trying to portray. when he talks about “The city pouring fire Ford Rouge sulfurs the sun, Cadillac, Lincoln, Chevy grey.” he is talking about how the factories have led Detroit to be filled with the factory smoke of the car factories that spew fire from their exhausts. When he says “The charred faces, the eyes boarded up, the rubble on innards, the cry of wet smoke hanging in your throat, the twisted river stopped at the color of iron. We burn this city every day.” he is saying that the race war did not burn this city. It was everything that people did and these factories are doing that burned the city.
