I took this photo in front of the school. I wasn't looking to get anything out of this photo, I just took it to get a feel for what the camera was like. In the end I decided to use Brenna and part of the tree in my final photo.

This photo was taken in Mrs.Bjork's art room downstairs. I was really trying to observe how certain objects looked together. Because I was trying to tell a story I decided to use the clock in my final photo.

Obviously I took this photo in the cemetery. I really liked the colors of the flowers and the angle of the graves. I used the graves in my final photo to represent that Brenna was dead.

I took this photo because I really liked the way the sign was hidden under the leaves and branches. I decided to use it in my final to give that mysterious feel to my photo.

Final:
The idea for this photo randomly hit me one class period. These clippings of photos were combined not just to create a pretty picture, but to tell a story. By combining Brenna, a clock, 2 gravestones, and a caution sign, I felt that I was able to accomplish my story. I faded Brenna out to look ghostly, and to show that she had died. I also used the graves to give that effect. I faded out the clock to show that Brenna ran out of time, and centered it so it's the first part of the photo seen. I also changed the color of the photo to black and white.


10 Changes:
1. I changed the color to black and white
2. I adjusted the black and white level to 26
3. I added the clock cutout to the final photo
4. I adjusted to tone of the clock by changing it to hard light
5. I added Brenna on the tree into the final photo
6. I adjusted Brenna's opacity to 74%
7. I added the graves into the final photo
8. I adjusted the grave tone to hard light
9. I added the notice sign into the final photo
10. I adjusted the sign tone to hard light
