For my daily shoot assignment on something that shows attraction I decided to focus on the idea of magnetic attraction. I thought lots of people would do something dealing with attraction based on other people or something like that (not that there is anything wrong with that), so I decided to switch it up a little and take a picture of my fridge and some magnets on it that shows magnetic attraction. Also don’t mind the little check off to the side and please don’t try to steal my dads identity, I don’t think he’d like that too much.
For my visual assignment I wanted to do “Pick a Bad Photo, Apply a vintage affect, and write somthing”. I’m not very skilled at photo shop or any other photo editing software so I thought by doing some assignments that involve using that, that it would help me get better. Who would’ve thought that practice makes perfect? So I went on Flickr and searched for bad pictures because I figured that Flickr would be a better judge of bad pictures than I would. And it led me to this funny little picture with a ‘bad’ stuffed kiwi bird, and I knew that I just had to use it. So I uploaded the picture in Gimp, and used an old photo effect on it. Then typed the age old phrase “birds of a feather flock together”. I know I didn’t use hevetica font like I was supposed to because for some reason my computer didn’t have it on their although I thought it was pretty much a standarded font but oh well. So instead I just used arial and tried to make it look a little artsy. I think it turned out alright for a guy who didn’t know what he was doing, and no matter what I’m 99% sure this picture will always make me giggle a little, and isn’t that what matters the most in the end?
