    The Dos and Don’ts of Marketing

    Modern artists use social media to present and promote their works. However, the social media world is massive and so diverse, each platform requires a different marketing strategy.

I’ve decided to study coder and designer Tom Beddard’s marketing strategy in his 7 platforms: website, Twitter, Ello, Vimeo, Flickr and Bēhance.

    How to Take Unique Photographs People Won’t Stop Looking at

    Have you ever seen those unique images where something doesn’t make sense, or they’re beautiful, but you’re not sure what they are? Maybe you’ve seen pictures of skyscrapers but from a unique angle? These and so many other unique photography ideas are called abstract photography. Yesterday during photography class, we were taking abstract photographs. These can be patterns, textures, angles, cropping, form, and so many more. To start, I decided to take angled pictures of skyscrapers. We’ve all seen these images, and they’re always beautiful. Next, I wanted to do something more unique.
