Project 4 Photo Narrative Exhibit

November 29, 2011 at 10:54 pm (Digital Design Projects)

Our fourth project for digital design involved several steps.  First we developed a concept for a storyboard, which would lead to a photo shoot.  Next we used various photographic techniques, including lighting, depth of field and framing to convey the story in photographic form.  These photos were edited slightly using Photoshop.

We then used lynda.com tutorials to learn to manuever in Google Sketchup.  Within the program, we created a 3D environment to complement our photo shoots and inserted the pictures using the texture feature.

I found Google Sketchup to be extremely difficult to use, but its capabilities are amazing.  I’m hoping with practice I’ll get the hang of navigating in a 3D environment.  I just found that small movements could have you orbiting much farther than you expected and that things appear to be different sizes or on different planes depending on your angle.  I’m guessing that you have to adjust to switching between several different perspectives.
