Paula created her own image!

This weekend, Paula created this image for “effervescent” and emailed it to me. Here is her email:

Hi Mr. Sam,

after we have been doing some presentation lessons with Mr. Will I have gone home and looked for more pictures that were relevant. When I tried searching for bubbling soda water nothing really relevant to effervescent came up so I thought I could take a picture by myself.

I first tried with a small camera which didn’t really work at all so I asked my mom to help she said she’d help but we’d use the big camera (Canon 5D). I really trust her because she has taken a lot of good pictures (my dad as well) thats why they bought such a good camera. So my mom even changed the lense because we had a special lense that was especially for close ups and then I was pouring some soda water into a glass while she took pictures and I then worked on it in Picasa.

Hope you like it,

    It looks so professional! It was smart to put that font. The whole thing would be ruinht if you did a slightly bigger font. It was also smart of make it have no CAPITAL LETTERS, the words can actually ruin the picture sometimes. What is Picasa?

      Yuu’re right, Sam, it does look professional.

      Paula, maybe you can do some mini-lessons on how to use Picasa?

          It is a program which is used to edit pictures and maybe add some text to them you can also make quite nice collages with them.

      I agree Pimboon. What a great photo! Picasa is a programme that you can use to edit photos. Just like Picnik. I agree with all of you guys! Great photography Paula!

    Great picture Paula! It is great how you organized yourself and used your resources (knowledge from school, your parents, the internet, etc.) to create such a powerful image. Well done.

    It seems to make bubbles well because it’s pure water.

      It is pure water though what provoked it to bubble like that was that I used soda water which has bubbles of air in it but I dont know if you can call it pure water since it has soda in it.
