Welcome to Slaughterhouse Four!


Great great great third week here at CMM. I learned my way around GIMP decently, and though  it’ll be a long journey, I’m feeling pretty confident in my progress thus far. I’m digging the .gifs and I’ll probably be experimenting more and more with those as they go on. As… Continue reading

Week 3 Letter Home!

Hey Mom and Dad!
This week has been CRAZY. Our counselors are in full swing right now. They are teaching us how to tell stories through visual creations, such as photography.

Littlefoot on the Move

Staying on the trend of making .gifs in an attempt to master them, this gem took me only a few minutes. Over the holiday break I got a new camera (thanks, Santa!), so I was experimenting with rapid shots and using my favorite model, my adorable cat I got some… Continue reading

My Day in Pictures

Visual Assignment 107 – Common Everyday Object

Having fun with Visual Media

This week we had to work on “Visual Assignments” dealing with photography, editing images, and just having fun! All campers had to at least earn 10 stars in order to get a good ol’ pat on the back and completion for the week.
The first visual assignment I worked on… Continue reading

Look Ma’, First GIF!

I did my first GIF today as part of an Visual Assignment for this week. This assignment was worth three stars and it was pretty fun. It was called Say It Like the Peanut Butter and you can find it here.
