This is a piece I just completed in class, I got this idea from looking on Worth1000. It was a contest that had already ended but i just liked the concept and idea. The contest was called Animal Dreams 5, and you can view it by clicking on this link. I found an image of a construction worker holding a stop sign, and swapped his head out with a dog head. Then I found a construction hat and put it on him. Then i removed the guys hand off the stop sign and put a dog hand on and puppet wrapped it. I also put a dog head on the blurry guy in the background.

This week in class me and my classmate Ryan decided to get an early start on some Spring Luncheon pieces. This is one of my three pieces i did in class this week. In this particular piece, I selected the flower and blurred the background and put down the hue/saturation. Then i adjusted with the levels, flattened it and used HDR. The other pieces i completed i will post later on, most likely next week. Over the weekend i have to think of a new project to start next week.

Our first week back, we had to choose one out of a hundred tutorials. I chose to make a abstract geometric poster design piece. It may look similar but a lot of work went into it. I had many layers and went a little off course than the tutorial. I used photoshop for the whole piece instead of illustrator instead. I used the shape tool and made two hexagons inside each other and copied them. I then turned of the outer hexagon and put a texture over it.

This is what i have done so far with my back light piece. I missed the last two days of class because i was sick and i am behind. I got this picture online and i brightened it a lot. I have a picture that Ryan took of me that i need to select and put in. I should be finished sometime next week.

This week in class we had a pretty easy week. We had a catch up week to work on any unfinished pieces. I was already caught up so i decided to do a contest on worth1000. unfortunately, i did not have time to enter the contest but i did complete my piece. It was a picture of a bird and you could manipulate the image any way you wanted.  So i took the bird and put it in a different environment. I also made everything except the bird black and white.

This week we had to do a cinema graph. It's an image that has certain parts that move and the rest stay still. However we had to do a self-portrait one. So i did myself jumping over a fence. I had Ryan take a video of me jumping over a fence and had him hold the camera as still as possible. Then i went back in and took screenshots of the video and made them separate layers and tuned them into a giff.

This week in class, we had to complete a portrait series of three pieces. Wh had to look at the National press photographers association portrait contest and use ideas from it. We looked at the 1st - 4th place winners. Each had a story to go along with the photos. So, my story is self expression and learning. Like in school you are required to take certain courses, even though they may not interest you. This piece is me walking ht e opposite direction of a one way street. I am going off course of what is expected of me.
