This semester has been a whirlwind of new things! I learned how to take better photos, learned how to use an audio recorder and I learned how to interview people. I had a really fun time in this class!
My favorite project this semester was the individual soundslides project; STOP sexual violence. I really loved editing the audio and putting it together with the pictures. I really loved how I intertwined music in with the audio interview. I thought it was really neat to be able to combine all of the things I have learned in this class into one project. One top of that, I really enjoyed getting to know Jules and the topic was fascinating!
I really learned a lot about how to combine photography, audio and reporting all into one form of media, which is an essential skill in the field of communications. I am really grateful that I got a chance to experiment with html formatting and the dreamweaver program. I believe that I will use all of these skills in my future career.
I see myself doing public relations in the future but since I am an International Studies and French major I am hoping to do public relations for an international company or organization. I am thinking about traveling abroad next year teaching English or doing a mission trip, and I feel confident now that I could blog about my experiences because of this class. I also am more confident in my photography skills and I think this skill could really aid me in my travels, which will hopefully be a part of my future career.
I wish we had gotten more time to learn about HTML formatting, but that’s ok and I realize that there is a class where you learn more advanced website formatting skills. For the most part I have really enjoyed every skill I have learned in this class.
This class has proven to be a huge learning experience! I have really enjoyed all of the projects we have done the entire semester!
