Over the past semester I have been in a class called CAP105. This class has helped to create, own, and expand a personal brand. Throughout this class we learned different technologies to help us in our career path, what it means to have a personal brand, and many other useful things. Since this class started I have created this blog/website to help display my talents, and expand my personal brand. I first would like to thank my professor Angela Peavey for being amazing and extremely helpful along this journey to creating a personal brand.
To begin, I decided to create a personal brand called Rome. My brand focuses on photography and videography. I was able to create this website and start up a portfolio of my work. Throughout the class I started to learn how to use programs such as adobe indesign, to help me create my business card. We also were taught how to use photoshop. This was a crucial discovery for me because it allows me to take my average pictures to the next level by removing unwanted visuals in the image. Combining this with my skill in adobe lightroom I was able to start creating A+ content with ease. All it takes is just a little time to learn the programs and put your knowledge to use. These programs are extremely powerful and I have just grasped their full potential. I am excited to continue using these programs and learning new features to further improve my content.
My favorite assignment in my CAP105 class was the video project. We were assigned to create a minute and fifteen second long video. After I created the video I put my footage into a program called adobe premiere. I have previous experience with this program so I was very excited to put my knowledge to work and create an awesome video for my professor, class, as well as myself. I use these videos to express my style, interests, and who I am. I used these videos to further my personal brand and expand outside information on my brand and what it truly means. Using all these programs greatly increases the potential of my content, brand, and future.
The last task we were assigned in this class was to get certified in google analytics. This certification increases the professionalism of my brand in the real world. It displays my knowledge of google analytics, as well it adds to the scale of my professionalism on a legitimized scale. The reason being companies can look at my google page and see that I have been certified and am not just out here doing stuff aimlessly. As a whole I have thoroughly enjoyed my CAP105 class and can confidently say that it has been the most beneficial college course I have taken thus far. Through learning how to use programs such as adobe photoshop, premiere, in design, and being certified by google I will use this to my advantage to continue to grow my personal brand. Overall this class has taught me what a personal brand is, what I want my personal brand to be, and to become. I am excited for my future and will continue to use this website to help grow my brand, Rome.
