Large Print Black and White

Even though this project was supposed to be b&w, I played with this picture and thought that it looked better with a little bit of color. I actually changed the color of the sky, and then left the green leaves as they were originally. I also chose this picture because I love the beauty of the Black Hills and especially the Aspen trees. This picture was powerful as b&w, but I thought it looked a little better in half color so I bent the rules :) -Kelsey

Interaction with the Print Surface

My original picture was for "wrapped" but I decided to "jazz" it up a bit. I initially cut out the window and used my desk lamp as the major light source. Then I took a plastic bag apart and glued strips to the image to make the texture of the "wrapping" come to life. Although this looks better as a 3d object rather than in the picture, I feel that it is creative and beautiful, and it adds attitude to a picture that was originally dull. -Kelsey :)
