Winter Judging Projects:

Photo Original--"Special"

I was outside at my grandparents' house with my iphone in my pocket.  I decided to walk around my grandmother's garden.  There was one area that had lots of big flowers she had planted last year.  Many of the flowers were dull and droopy.  It made me feel gloomy.  The flowers taht still had bright colors made me smile.  I saw one small flower that was healthy.  It was brightly colored and beautiful.  I had to take a picture of it.  This flower reminds me to stay bright and bold when others are down.  It will make you feel happy and even special.--Grace


Photo Original--"Curiosity"

I took this image on my Apple iphone 5s last summer in Virginia.  I was visiting a farm on a vaction trip with my grandparents.  I called this photo curiosity because in my opinion it makes me want to go through the screen and use my senses to experience the beauty of the flowers.  This flower was the only one completely sprung open.  I think it it looks beautiful in the field of other particially opened flowers. .--Abby

Graphic Design--"Mater is Ready for Spring"

I took this picture one day with my mom in my front yard with my iphone.  The reason I took it was for a 4-H photo contest, but I also thought it would be a great picture for STLP as well.  I sent it to my ipad and used a photo editor app.  I made the lighting brighter and added the text with a caption that sounded cool, then I put the words in my favorite color.  Finally, I saved it to my ipad and emailed it to my teacher.--Keeley

*Videos for DPOJ*





Integer Video

This video was created using our new Canon video camera and new boom mic.  The project began with a storyboard of the video and the people needed.  It took several takes to get all the footage needed.  Editing was done in Pinnacle.  The audio had to be adjusted in certain portions of the video to make it sound uniform.  Text of the math problems was added so that they were clear to the viewer.  Title screens were also added and some animation to the text.  The purpose was to teach kids an easy way of adding integers.


Mexico Video

This video on Mexico was created using Photostory.  I started with an outline of what needed to be included and what information I needed to find.  Still pictures were saved in a folder, then added to Photostory.  Text and audio was also added.  I cited the sources of all the pictures at the end.  The audio added was all original that was written from my research notes.  Our purpose was to teach kids about the culture in another country.  We are working on more country videos.
