to do this, i used the pen tool to select all of the space besides my hair and clothes and arm. i then made the selected path black, and edited it to satisfaction. afterwards, i typed in my quote in white text to make it stand out along with the other white space.
this semester i learned a lot of helpful things contributing to Photoshop. before i came into this class, i never expected myself to be able to do the stuff i can do now. i have to say, that this project has to be my favorite because it incorporated not only mine, but everyone else's element of perspective(s) into one expression of themselves or the world around them.
