This is my favorite picture I took with the software
The Glocal project. From Arts Umbrella.
Ah art. The best expression. A window into the soul. Art is so many different things it just depends on how you see it. Art is a way to express everything that is inside you. Writing, drawing, painting, poetry even dance and singing are all forms of art, but I have to say one of my favorite forms of art is photography. You can take a camera anywhere and capture something amazing. All the pictures I took were in the computer lab because the camera was like a web cam and it was attached to the computer.
Arts Umbrella is an art school in Vancouver, BC. People from age 2 – 30 are going to the school and taking classes or going there full time. We were lucky enough to have a teacher and a volunteer come to our school every morning for the last 2 weeks. Josh is a teacher at arts umbrella and he showed us some of his work and it was amazing and creative. Franziska is a volunteer from Germany who is also helping out. They are both very nice and fun.
The Process of taking a picture
What to do, what to do? When I take pictures I tend to get stuck when I’m limited to a space filled with computers and brown walls. Some times I had to get ideas from people around me. The picture I took is actually a picture of the computer I work at. The glass screen made beautiful patterns when I moved the camera around. The camera is connected with the USB port so we can’t move very far away. The software we used was easy to navigate and take pictures with and its a free program and you can get it off the site I have linked to above.
Again I want to thank Josh and Franziska for being so much fun and teaching us how to take a good picture and that you can get inspiration from anywhere.
