For my second project I have to create a self portrait. It cant just be a picture, we have to make it our own by adding certain things that reflect our personality. I am going to use a simple picture of myself and probably make it black and white or sepia. I want to add the phrase Mair don Noimead, which means "live in the moment" in Gaelic. Both of my parents are Irish, so it represents my heritage and where I come from. I try to live by that phrase, and it has a big impact in my life. I also want to add a city skyline to the background because I am hoping to move to either Chicago or New York after graduation. For the texture in the background I am going to scan some lace into the computer to represent my girly side. I think I will use a lot of browns or grays and pinks. Pink is kind of my thing. The rest of the details will require a little thought and consideration. I don't know what else is going to happen with it.
