Visual Assignment: Me and Bae

Me and Bae: For this assignment, we were told to choose a picture of a famous couple and crop their faces out. Then, I had to crop the faces of myself and my “bae”, insert these faces into the photo, and add a funny description. (2.5 stars)

Original photo of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds:

Miranda and Boyd step out onto the red carpet for the Emmy’s. Boyd is looking handsome as ever, and Miranda is wearing her fabulous hair in a side braid. But wait, Miranda is posing like a duck! She has Paintbrush lipstick on, and is giving the paparazzi the ultimate duck face! Very surprising for a celeb like Miranda! Boyd seems to be the laid back one, while Miranda shows her outgoing side, which definitely balances the couple out. Maybe both will get a win tonight! We will see!

I really enjoyed creating this image. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are so perfect, so I had to use a photo of them. I knew I had heard of a website that utilizes people’s faces and inserting them into “holes”. It’s simply called Face in a Hole.  I uploaded the original image of Blake & Ryan, and then had to use the crop tool to crop out their faces precisely. Then, I uploaded a photo of myself, and inserted it into Blake’s hole, and did the same for my “bae”. The site also has tools, including rotate, zoom, and color saturation to make the image look realistic! I used them all in order to perfect the image.

I liked this assignment, one, because I got to be Blake Lively in this photo, and two, I got to create a story with this funny image of me and my “bae” (Boyd is actually my real boyfriend). I used my imagination, which is a big word for me with the visual aspect of the week. I wanted to act like I was a gossip magazine reporter, and this was a major photo in my magazine!
