I started my biography project with making the baseline code for the first page and creating placeholders for where I could put information once I had gathered it. I designed the first page and then copied it for the remain pages to establish continuity over the design. After that, I added my research and information to provide the "meat" of the presentation and make sure all of my facts are in order. From there, I went to my CSS sheet and began formatting and tweaking the many aspects of my project to have a simple and clean look/feel to it. The biggest problem or nuisance that I encountered was finding and changing the special characters like quotation marks because they don't naturally appear in code without specified input. The part of the project that I am the proudest of is my homepage which I feel is calm and simple, while still providing information and emitting a clean feeling as everything is ordered and nothing is floating or overlapping. The design of the page is overall something I am very proud of.

I did the assignment for leading lines and used two pictures demonstrate the leading lines effect to make a picture more interesting. This effect causes the viewer's eyes to be lead into what the subject of the image is. In my first picture, I used my own arm petting my dog to lead into the dog which is the focal point of the picture. The other image I used was the return of my wooden duck with a lanyard leading into the picture. I chose the lanyard because it intentionally looked unnatural but still managed to grasp the curiosity

I took two pictures demonstrating the rule of thirds by capturing an image in a third of the screen to cause more interest and dynamic than if a picture was taken straight on. The two pictures I took both put the object in the left third of the picture showing the environment to the right side. I think the images came out good in terms of the quality and understanding of the rule of thirds. If I could do something differently I would have filled the background with something more interesting and visually appealing rather than just the plain background that I put in the pictures.

Point of View
For this lesson on the point of view, the picture I chose was of a wooden duck. I chose this wood duck because it has been in my family for a long time and has always been interesting to me. The duck was handcrafted by a woman in Florida as an art piece, which means it can continue its legacy of art by helping me create art for this project. I chose the first of the three images because it was a straightforward look at the duck and it is comparable to the others. The second picture I took was a bird's eye view, I chose this because there are not many objects that can be view directly downward like this duck. The third and final image is upward because it is a naturally small object that a person would not usually look up to.
