Tribute Photos

This photo was taken in 2014. It was inspired by Karl Blossfeldt a photographer her sculpted plants and objects and then photographed them. All of his photos are in black and white. His main focus was always the object he created. The object would usually be in the center of the picture and have a plain background. What I like about his photos is that you can see the detail in every single one. In this picture the spiked on the plant are the main focus and are really cool to look at. What I did to have a similar shot was that I took an object (the football) and created a plain background for it. When I took the shot I made sure the level of the football and the level of the camera were the same and once I took the picture I put a black and white filter on it. What I like about my photo is that you can really see the detail of the football, the words are clear and you can see the dimples of the ball. Also, the black and white filter really brings out the ball.

Social Networks and Political Activism

Political Activism Graph

The other day I read an article in my Spanish class about whether it is a good idea to use social media to promote political activism around the world. There were people who talked about the negative influences that could come about from using social networking in politics, but there were also people who believed that it is a brilliant idea to use it. Those that took the negative side of the argument said that this could be a bad idea because a lot of the time the media/news tend to slant stories and are not always reliable. But I have to agree with those that took the positive side because I believe that it is easy and simple to get adolescents involved in politics.

Promoting political campaigns over the news on TV and websites such as CNN and BBC are great ways of spreading political activism, but it seems that only mostly adults get on these sites or TV channels. In order to get the youth of this generation more active in politics, why not use social networking? Teens are on social media apps every second of every day. They can see world issues and/or campaigns just by someone "retweeting" or "sharing" an article. I think websites such as Twitter and Facebook are great ways to promote political activism and get adolescents more involved and active in expressing their opinions on certain topics.

All over, we see people using social media for everything. From valuable communication tools like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to dating websites like Tinder to less serious programs like Snapchat, everyone uses social media. So, what makes a social media website successful? What do all of these services have in common? Why do some sites fail?
