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.
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.
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.
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.
