Create a collage in Photoshop: Use two or more digital images to create an 8×10 collage @150 ppi in Photoshop. The dominant image must be a self-taken portrait, but the content for other image(s) is open. The images may be blended with masks, or cropped and arranged in an appealing composition. Some text must be included, but names are optional. Size and save layout for 8×10 and 4×6: Plan the layout so it will also work when cropped to a 4×6. Also, be sure to maintain any borders you may have with the same proportions. DO NOT just crop down your existing layout. Upload and print at a one-hour photo lab: Save and upload properly sized RGB jpegs to an online one-hour photo lab: 8×10 and 4×6 inches @ 150 ppi, Maximum Compression; Optimized Quality. Bring the completed evaluation form with the 4×6 and 8×10 prints to class. Add name and section to the back of prints.

Process of Design
I took both these pictures today in my room. I wanted to put my my face in a reflection of a camera lens and so I cut my head out of another picture and then placed it in the lens area. But I wanted it to look more legit so I investigated how to make a “glass look” and read a article about how to make a glass ball, but only did half the tutorial because I just needed a glassy flat lens not a full on sphere. Then I created a circle for wrapped text around it to make it look like the lens’s description but have my name on it and my major.
This is very simplistic and yet has a lot of depth to it. Which I believe accurately describes who I am. I used a camera theme because that demonstrates art, design, technology, scenery, and capturing beauty. And I believe designs can be capture by producing quality compositions ranging from the way a website looks and functions to just personal journal keeping. And my smile is to indicate that I’m a relatively happy guy.
