The message am trying to display is my interests and hobbies that I have developed throughout my years of life. The background layer is a selfie I took with googley eyes to make it more humorous and to show my fun side. The first layer is a picture of my assembled monster from my Graphic Design. The second layer is a picture that I took because it was intriguing to me and how the ice was on the individual needles of the pine tree. My third layer is a picture straight up of a tree decorated with red lights that was really cool. The fourth layer is an image from my engineering notebook because it is one of the biggest parts of my life. My fifth layer is a 3-D printed school bus because I am the only person at my school able to run all three of our 3-D printers and I consider myself the printing master. In Photoshop I use the lasso and crop tools to resize my images to make them fit better. This project was just to learn the very basics of photoshop. I also go to express myself and my interests in a new way that I haven't done before.
This image has been created to show how much I have grown and developed of the course of this trimester. This picture has many improvements to my original image. One problem with the first image was all of the clutter and what I have been learning is how to manage the photos to make them blend together. One problem this selfie has it that I was not doing anything fun or interesting, however the background provides the sun to enhance the image. I felt this image would look better in black and white, otherwise the sunlight would have looked weird on my face.
