My Year in GCT: Katie Khau

My 5 best pieces of GCT are:

My Year Reflection

This year I have learned many things mostly things involving a mac book. When we had to learn how to edit footage on imovie I couldn't help but find it difficult, but as we kept working only on imovie and learning about all the neat features it had to offer; i started getting more use to it. Another thing I've learned was photoshop; I never really used it before until this year, so it was a great experience for me. Overall GCT was a great experience and a fun course.

My Year In GCT

Photoshop Element

Stop Motion

First iMovie

Leaves Shot
Day2 Leaves

Quick shot
Day28 Something I'm afraid of

This year in GCT was a blast, I had fun learning new things and taking a lot of cool shots. This year I actally learned how to use iMovie on a Mac, to be honest it was pretty tricky. I also learned how to use the camera like how to change the aperture and stuff. I really enjoyed being in this class because Mr. Harbeck makes it more fun, like that time we took a fall walk and took some shots. That was really fun! The hardest challenge that I had trouble on was my I Have A Dream presentation. It was really hard because I couldn't really make it the way I wanted it. Overall, I enjoyed taking pictures and making videos. :)

Very first Stop Motion

2nd Stop Motion (Magic Hands)

Athletic Banquet Video (Senior Basketball)

How I captured Paul Walker somehow.

This year I learned how to actually use a Mac laptop!! Which was a huge accomplishment. I learned how to use the camera manually and how to change the shutter and aperture to take nicer photos. I also learned how to get the lens to open to take in more light and how to use photoshop to make my photos look nice. I actually really enjoyed this class. I loved it when we went outside to take photos. I didnt enjoy having to restart my MLK speech about 5 times though but it was kinda fun.. I especially enjoyed making the videos!

My Year in GCT

Throughout the entire year I learned many different skills. I learned how to use photoshop and all the cool things that you can do in photoshop. This year, I also learned a lot of different types of shots that you can take with a camera rather than always taking the same old boring landscape or portrait pictures.I learned all the different settings in the camera like how to use shutter speed, aperture and manual mode. While learning about all the settings in a camera, I learned that the longer the time in shutter speed, the more light

To be honest, I had a lot of fun in GCT this year, it's one of my favorite classes. I learned a lot of things that I could use in the future and I made new friends. If it weren't for this class I wouldn't know how to use the camera properly and know the different settings. One thing I really enjoyed doing in this class was taking pictures, like when we went to the skate park and the fall walk. Because of this course I realized that I'm actually interested in taking pictures :) Another thing that I had fun doing was the stop motion, before I always wonder how they do the motion stop and how much effort it takes to make one and now I can proudly say that I made one! I'm also thankful of this class because I finally learned how to use the Mac and make movies in iMovie. I'm really glad that I was chosen to be in this course because all of the things I learned will be useful in the future. Yes, there was a lot of struggles too but it was all worth it in the end. Also, thank you Mr. Harbeck for making it a fun and enjoyable class :)

Roselle's Year in GCT

This year i love this class.... the fact that we get to use cameras and use our phones in class were awesome :) It's one of my favorite classes this year. It was really fun!! We got to work on the yearbook and videos for important occasions. It was nice to explore and try the new things we did in GCT this year. I've always wanted how to use iMovie and if it weren't for this class, I couldn't have learned to use it. It was cool to try using a Mac because ive never used one. Also the I have a dream presentation was very useful and helpful for me because now i know how to create nice presentations with different styles. This year was really fast. There were so many opportunities with different ares like photography, video editing, and etc. Anyways I had fun in this class. :)
