ARRGGGHHHH  i hate bloggs !

there i feel better now

been playing around with fonts at home found some interesting ones ! it sems the most interesting ones wont be much use to my project though:( so i made a consious effort to find only fonts which would look right for the sort of product i am useing in my brief)..found some which would be of use for the technical side eof the posters ( information should be clear and precise ) still looking for a font ive used before wen i had win98 cant find it yet :9 gona bring a sample in on friday and see i f any of my lecturers cabn find it for me 🙂 ( make them earn there wages 🙂 ). Struggling with sketch book and moodboard (esp MOODBOARD) i find the concept of moodboards ALIEN and am struggling with it !!.

On the plus side i have got a quite a bit of preliminary work done on my second poster and had a few ideas for  the third one.ive been finding , taking,and making pictures which i can work on for my 2nd poster…ive been digging out old photography mags and observing the way they use text and images (which fonts,size etc) ..got a few ideas about useing fonts esp resizing certain parts and trying out meathods of making the wordswith transparent fonts of underlying images (hard to explain in words..)

I’m struggling to put down ideas in ink 😦 i have allways tended to work as i go on …starting with an initial idea then running with it and seeing how it goes rather than planning each stage in advance…..i get my creative inspiration by seeing what is happening as i go along and reacting to visuall things rather than..working to a tight script..more of an ad libber than a writer..if that makes sense.

Session 4 – Inserting Images in WordPress

William Shakespeare (baptised 26 April 1564 – died 23 April 1616)[a] was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world’s pre-eminent dramatist.[1] He is often called England’s national poet and the “Bard of Avon” (or simply “The Bard”). His surviving works consist of 38 plays,[b] 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.[2]

Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford-upon-Avon. At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592 he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of the playing company the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, later known as the King’s Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later. Few records of Shakespeare’s private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.[3]

Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1590 and 1613. His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the sixteenth century. Next he wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest examples in the English language. In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights. Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime, and in 1623 two of his former theatrical colleagues published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognised as Shakespeare’s.

Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century. The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare’s genius, and the Victorians hero-worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called “bardolatry”.[4] In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance. His plays remain highly popular today and are consistently performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.

In todays (fri) we did a lot of the paperwork and admin work tto get our university cards and had a look at the facilitys we can use at the uni.
I managed some time to get my poster 2 image into some sort of a working prototype which i am maily happy with i combined some of the component parts of my idea to make up the photo of  a camera on a tripod with another of my photos placed over the rear LCD screen to give the immpresion that it was the view which the camera was seeing .(see pic)the camera was lifted from a large(ish)photo on fuji’s website and the tripod was my own tripod which i photographed and then cloned onto a new document page and then added the combined camera+ image,one i was happy with the positioning i saved as a jpeg so that i could move the camera tripod image as one unit.
this combined image was thensuperimposed onto a photo i have chosen to use i my poster.(see pic)and a couple of logos which i created were added.
