Project Description

  • Redesign the Presidential Inauguration Media Photo that is released domestically and globally
  • Analyze the layout and visual represented in the picture of power
  • Utilize Photoshop to create a new image and message

Showcase Videos

Content: The top 3 things I learned from this showcase were:

I learned how to utilize Photoshop to create a new background, insert objects/people, and how to publish for online use. I learned the power an image gives both domestically and globally.

Culture: This project relates or connects to my family, background, peers, community or my own personal interests in these ways:

Before this project, I had never watched the Presidential Inauguration. By evaluating historical inaugural pictures, I began to see myself and my role as a citizen in the political process. I feel that the American people have a deeper connection to the Lincoln Memorial and the unity that the visual of Lincoln creates over the anxiety and aggression they may feel from the Capitol building. I also feel like I would add in more audience members that represent my hometown of Hamilton instead of the fancy dressed politicians.

Metacognition: In reflection, one thing that I would have done differently during my journey with this showcase is:

I would have worked on my editing skills to create more life inserts of the Supreme Court Justice and the former presidents. I would add in more audience members to reflect America’s diversity and would reach out to more peers for edit suggestions.

Social/Emotional: One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is:

I was able to tie in my duty as an informed citizen with my career development skills that I have learned in Digital Media class. It gave me a good read on the skills I do well and what I need to do to improve in Photoshop.
