And for my second post of the day, I am going to add some of my projects from my Digital Photography class from this past semester at Herkimer College so that you get to see my growing skills with Photoshop. So I hope you will enjoy them.
Hey, everyone. Just stopping by to share something with you today. Throughout this semester at Herkimer College, I have been taking a course called Communication Arts Portfolio where I have to post all of the projects I have done throughout my time in the Communication Arts New Media major. However, since I still have one more year to go in the major (I graduate next year because I changed to New Media from Radio/TV Broadcasting) I also threw in some of my Radio/TV Projects as well including some Audio projects from my Audio Production class and an audio project about how Twilight ruins relationships (which as you all know I later turned into a video.)
And since I have been encouraged to make the profile public, I will enclose a link to it here: http://behance.net/timhaines
So I hope you will check it out.
In case you may or may not be aware, I have officially started my third year at HCCC this week. Yes, folks. The beginning of the end has arrived. And this is my first semester in my new major which is Communication Arts and New Media. And so far, things are going pretty good. I think my courses may be easier this time around.
Oh, what’s that? What do I have for courses this semester? Well, on Mondays and Wednesdays I have Photography and on Tuesdays and Thursdays I have Computer Graphics and Design. And that’s not all. I am also taking a web design course. And it’s an online course so I don’t really have to be on campus a whole lot compared to the last two years. And I have Fridays off like I did towards the end of last semester. The way it stands right now it doesn’t look like any of the problems that plagued me last semester will rear its ugly head. But it’s college, you know.
In Photography, I’ll be going old school with some old school black and white equipment. In Computer Graphics, I’ll be learning how to design regular stuff using Photoshop and various other stuff which I’ve only had mediocre success with in the past. And as far as my online course Web Design goes, my ultimate goal will be to create my own website. I don’t really think it’s going to be connected with my regular activities here, but at least it will be very useful when I continue to expand. Next thing you know, I’ll be able to rule the Interwebs. XD
Sometimes it isn’t easy transitioning back to college after taking a summer off. However, I don’t really have that heavy a workload this semester. Right now I don’t really have to worry about tests or anything. Most of the final exams I have will mainly be presentations which is a load off. Hopefully, I will be able to avoid the disaster that befell me last semester with the erratic scheduling.
So yeah, there you go. My final year of college has officially begun and it will be a recurring theme throughout the remainder of the year and into next year. As far as what I plan to do after I graduate, I don’t know. One idea I have and probably should do is relocate to another state and I’m not sure. Maybe continue my education in a college, but I gotta go where I can have better opportunities to be successful be it job, relationship, whatever. Because whatever I’m looking for I’m obviously not gonna find it here in New York. I’ve gotta go where the opportunities are.
