The mandatory visual assignment for this week was Are We There Yet?. Before doing this assignment I was very worried because of my lack of Photoshop skills. I knew I wanted to take a picture from me Snowboarding and change the background to something completely out of the ordinary but I didn’t know how. It actually turned out to be so much easier than I thought it would be. Turns out, these days Photoshop pretty much will do all the work for you. Using the object selection tool it was able to almost exactly cut me out of one picture, which I was then able to paste on a different background. This picture was originally taken in New Hampshire while on a Snowboarding trip last year. Here is the original picture and the new picture.
Here is a video that helped me to create the above photo:
