    You seem to have done a thorough job thinking through what your study will entail, and ensuring the legality of your study. Great job. My one question is where will you be obtaining pictures of the past to compare you pictures with? Meaning, whose pictures will you be using? How will you get them? etc

  • Wow! These pictures are great. I think you did a great job capturing different parts of the wedding, and it looks like you had a lot of fun in the process. Just glancing at these pictures makes me want to learn more about the 2 weddings that you attended and I am excited to hear […]

There seems to be a “universal” opinion of beautiful features (such as long hair, brightly colored eyes, straight white teeth etc).

    I thought that the case study of visuals on Barrone Street was a very interesting study.  In New Orleans, people were using visual methods (for example graffiti) to voice their political and social opinions. Radtke chose to study these images and what they symbolized. The research was done while the researcher was bike riding through […]

    What are you planning on taking pictures of? It is great that you already received permission from the bridge to take pictures of the wedding. You should look in to whether you need permission from other individuals that will be in your pictures? For example, if you take a picture of 2 individuals dancing – […]

  • There are several ethical considerations involved in our study.
