For this assignment, we were told to find a historical photo and crop ourselves into the photo to pretend you were there. I chose several different photos including the classic “Kissing the War Goodbye photo” but nothing looked great. Instead I ended up choosing a photo of several boys and added a cutout of my head to the right side of the photo.. especially because the guy right next to me conveniently had the same sort of headband I was wearing so I actually fit in! Though I found it fun to look through historical photos, I honestly thought this was a very hard assignment… I personally don’t have photoshop which is the most common and easiest way to crop oneself into the photo while still making it look realistic.
I ended up choosing PicMonkey yet again, and had to crop my photo on my own first, then add the background photo and then finally add the overlay of my face. I was then able to change the colors so the colors matched and finally added a colored circle to highlight were my face is. I did enjoy this assignment, but for the first cropping yourself into a photo…without photoshop… it was pretty hard!
