Final Project- Finals Destressor Video

The purpose of this assignment was to cover a newsworthy event by creating a movie of it. My partner, Natasha Fowles, and I, chose to do the 7220 Finals Destressor. I’ve been to the destressor multiple times in the past, and I’ve always enjoyed it. It brings in a large and diverse group of students,…

Live Tweeting-Blog Post 9

This assignment required us to be live reporter through Twitter. For my generation, this should have been a no-brainer assignment. Unfortunately, I’m one of the few from my generation that isn’t actually a giant fan of Twitter. I had it my senior year of high school and the first half of my freshman year of…

The Curiosity Shoppe vs. Sweet Pickles

For this blog post, I chose to compare and contrast the social media presence of the Curiosity Shoppe of Laramie and Sweet Pickles of Laramie.  I chose to do the small business side of things because I feel like small businesses have a much smaller reach, but it’s one that relates much more to the…

Edited Audio Soundtrack

I struggled majorly with this assignment. It’s probably been my most difficult one yet. My computer did not want to work with the Audacity system. Then, when I did get it to download correctly, I struggled figuring out how to paste and cut the fragments that I needed. I also had to keep replaying the…

Raw Audio File

Natasha Fowles raw audio on reasons she’s not a registered voter… I’ve interviewed and recorded a lot of people before, so this didn’t feel strange for me. I’ve also been interviewed and recorded a few times, so, again, it wasn’t too strange. However, it was strange trying to think about it becoming an actual audio…

Personal Snapshots

For the non-sports feature photo, I chose Corissa Guynes throwing candy off of the ASUW float during the parade. The caption reads; “Sweet Treat~Throwing candy to members of the Laramie community, Corissa Guynes represented the Associated Students of the University of Wyoming in the parade on October 8. Guynes is a Senator for the College…

  A Path of Branches uses leading lines as the dominant element of this picture.  This photo leads the viewers eye down the path of tree branches. It makes the picture easy to look at and gives a very natural feeling. Turning Out the Lights uses contrast as the dominant element. The silhouette is also…

Wildlife for Life

A Look into Life It’s a little thing called wildlife…How often do people see animals and think, ‘hey that’s pretty neat.’ Well for people like Jace Cussins, wildlife is more than just neat, it’s life. Cussins is a Wildlife Biology and Management major with a double major in Environmental and Natural Resources at the University…

Article Usability

While exploring this article, I simply explored from top to bottom.  There really were no alternative links to choose from.  The only option was to scroll down.  Video links were the only things that could be played, and they popped up as I scrolled down.  Due to the fact that this site offered so little…

My News Diet

Well, I have to admit, even though I’m a communication major, my news diet is lacking.  I attempt to stay up to date with the world around me, but I usually fall short.  It’s possible to find me skimming through an online article or a newspaper or magazine, but it is a rarity.  Part of…
