So since he is the photography professor here, he obviously loves everything about pictures and cameras, so that was the major concept of the whole design. Basically, I took a few pictures of professor Stichweh in different scenarios, and went from there. I wanted to incorporate the camera and his fasciation and love for black and white landscapes, so that is what I used as the background to my picture. I used one of the pictures that I took during his class as the background of the piece.
In order to relay his love for taking pictures, I took a picture of my camera and cut out the lens. I then took a picture that I cut out of Professor Stichweh holding a camera, and placed that image inside of the lens. I think it looks pretty cool. Steven said that the image was looking a little flat, so he suggested that I use a filter that distorts the image to make it look inverted, so that it actually looked as if it could be in the lens.
I really like the piece right now. Hopefully I don't mess anything up before the end of the class period!
