This is a rough, ROUGH draft of a photo collage I am working on for Communications 210.
Its appearance practically begs one to cry foul and decry any amount of effort I may claim to have put into this piece. To an extent it deserves it. However, a lot of creative thought has been put into the “idea” of the project. I am simply struggling to find a way to actually achieve it.
My goal for this collage is to create a stack of four words, which include: faith, family, work, school. In each letter of each word a photo representing the essence of each line will be placed inside.
The four words mentioned are the focuses of my life. They are my priorities. Because of this, I have hundreds of photos related to these words.
Bad habit or not, I like to thank the social media happy culture I live in for my overabundance of documentation.
To be honest, it’s a little cheesy and a tad Pintrest-y. Whatever, though. I found and image via Google that sparked my interest. It inspired me. There happened to be a tutorial attached. Here is a link to the blog Retrohipmama: http://retrohipmama.wordpress.com/2014/01/03/photo-and-letter-collage-with-video-tutorial/
I plan on using this tutorial to help me create a collage that best presents my class related theme “About Me.” Photos of co-workers, photos of family, photos of the church I attend, and photos of non-Com 210 related class-work will compile within the text boxes. Since yesterday, I’ve watched the tutorial a couple of times over and plan on putting it into action this weekend after I download a free trial of Adobe Photoshop. Hopefully, the piece turns out how I anticipate. Hopefully, it looks better than a Safeway mail-in food advertisement. I look forward to producing for you – the reader – a collage that will blow your mind. I guarantee it will make up for the digital template spill you’re fortunate enough to witness below.
