Portrait of Alfonsina Storni

We got to use Photoshop again this week! I chose the multiple face portrait from the ds106 website.

I chose Alfonsina Storni the late Argentine poet as the subject for the averaged portrait. I learned about her writing at York in my Spanish 106 class. She published her most acclaimed work El dulce daño in 1918. There weren’t a lot of portraits of her online, so I picked a few.

Putting the layers together for this on Photoshop took some trial and error and me accidentally setting the eraser opacity to 0% >.> The next the project from I would like to take on is the imaginary place:

I’d like to merge the characters of Broad City with the film Pride and Prejudice (2005). Basically, add them to a P&P backdrop and add their car somewhere near them. I will be attempting this idea in our next class as well as the  3D Anaglyph like Vivian did with a portrait.


I think ten more projects like these would definitely improve our Photoshop and storytelling abilities. This week in class we learned how to edit layers in photoshop and retouching the subjects of the photos surroundings. Learning these skills I think ables us to create more and express our ideas specific to us.
