Still Life

Last week I covered a photography class. They were to read this article and then photograph the items that the article listed. Then they were to watch a video on symbolism, likely to help them arrange their still life images. In case you want to take a look at the video: 

So, why am I telling you all this? Because embedded in the Google Classroom for the class was a link I'd like to save. For me. And the easiest way to do it is to put it someplace I'll find it again. 

Apparently, they've been taking pictures using their phones. When school is in person, they can check out cameras to use. At home, that's harder. (They only have a set number of cameras, so when at school, they work in teams.)

And the link I want to save is for converting HEIC (the format that iPhones now use) to JPEG (the format I need if I want to use the images anywhere else, like this blog). I had been using them via Google Photos. I'm not sure which is easier, but I like having the choice. 

There. Now I can find that link again, even though I did bookmark it. (I never look at my bookmarks. I forget they're there.)

  1. High school has changed and for the better. I don't think such creativity was encouraged back in my day.

    1. That's too bad. Nowadays they really do encourage students to think for themselves as much as they can.

  2. More than bookmarking on browser, what I do is to clip the article to Evernote. I find it very easy.

  6. I don't save anything like that anymore because I know I'll never go back to it.

  9. It is amazing how good some of the cell phone pics are but there is nothing better then a professional camera. Most of my pics I put on the blog are from the cell phone.

    1. They're not quite to professional camera standards yet. It's beginning photography. But this is how they learn to get there.
