9:45 Sticker Design
As you may know, we have a vinyl cutter in CAWD 2. This allows us to cut out silhouettes or shapes that are stickers. I had some time this summer to read up on the cutter and waste a lot of vinyl, but I think I may have it figured out.
Watch this older apple commercial to get an idea of what we can make.
- 4″ height
- 4″ width
- Black shape
- White Background
- Vector Artwork
We have an array of colors to choose from, but your design will only be printed in one. So choose wisely. We have Pink, Red, Dark Red, Blue, Green, Lime, Orange, Yellow, Gold, Silver, White, and Black. Again, you may choose ONE
As I mentioned yesterday, I will be printing out two for each person, one to put on your computer here in CAWD, and one to bring home and do what ever with.
When complete, upload your two stickers as lastNameColor1.jpg and lastNameColor2.jpg into your week_1 folder. After that, send me an email with the two images.

11:05 Camera Breakdown
- SD Card
- Shutter Button
- Main Dial
11:15 Let’s Take Photos
When we finish our breakdown of the cameras, we will be going outside to take photos of stuff. Yes, anything. This is to get used to the camera, no photos are being handed in right now. But still save them. If you are here in the afternoon, we will be using them.
We will be using the buddy system, old school. Pair up, group up with friends. I am only one person so it will be hard for me to monitor all of you at once. One person in the group must be the time keeper. You all must be back at 12:00, ready for lunch. Also so I can account for the cameras, and you all as well.
12:00 Photo Homework
Since we got a long weekend, I will be giving you all a little bit of homework.

12:45 Logo Photo
This afternoon, we are going to take a few of the photos you had taken earlier today, and add some logos to the top of them. Ever gone on google to look for photography, then get the “annoying” water mark on the photo you like? This is a good thing. People need to know the great work you make.
As you see below, I went outside yesterday and took a quick photo of a flower and made a pretty quick version of what I am asking for. I should have thought in advance the placement of the flower, because as you can see, my logo and name are not centered.
- 5 Photos
- 5 Different logos
- 5 Different forms of your name (ie: full name, first name, last name, nickname, initials)
When complete, upload your 5 photos as logoPhoto1.jpg – logoPhoto5.jpg in a week_1/photography/logo/ folder.
