For my third assignment this week, I chose to do a Design Assignment. The design assignment task was to photoshop myself into a different environment. I had several ideas in mind but when this one came to mind I had to do it!
I had a lot of fun with this assignment! I originally thought of photo shopping myself snorkeling in the snow but it didn’t turn out as great. So, I played around and came up with many different pictures but by far this one was my favorite. This is a photo of me kayaking at the summer camp I attended this summer, in which a few classmates and I served as camp counselors to children at risk. In the original kayaking photo I had one of the children sitting in front of me, but I decided to photo shop him out for privacy reasons.
Again, I had a lot of fun with this assignment and spent about thirty minutes playing around with different photos. I’m not sure how I got the idea of using Saturn but once I thought of the idea, I googled a picture of Saturn and saved it to my phone. I then went to my PhotoshopMix (a version of Adobe photoshop), inserted the picture of Saturn and began searching for a picture to crop on the Saturn’s rings. I originally had a photo of me sitting on the rings but once I photo shopped the kayak in there, I liked it a lot more. I used the lasso tool to crop out any unwanted space in my kayaking picture, then placed it how I liked onto Saturn’s rings. The way I placed the picture was to make it look like I was kayaking on Saturn’s rings.
