Visual Assignment – Who is that and why is he in the Victoria Secret Store? It’s all a big mystery!
I was wandering around on the Assignment Bank looking for something that I could possibly do with my limited skillset. I spent sometime trying to figure out how to make a GIF (whatever that is) when I came across this Visual Assignment for editing a photo. The assignment was to take a picture of a “pop star” and crop the picture and place it within another picture of a place where you would not expect to see them. And guess what? Someone had posted a tutorial on how to do this using Microsoft Paint. I have Microsoft Paint and thanks to @CoutneyRode I might actually be able to do this assignment. So I set to work following Courtney’s guide. Since I am not familiar with who the current pop stars are, I chose the iconic Batman for my pop star. The challenge now was finding a full length view of Batman so he could appear to be standing in the store. I found one online that was not perfect but it got the job done. For the location where you would likely not see Batman, I chose the pink lingerie store Victoria’s Secret. I looked for pictures on Google Images of Victoria Secret and selected the one that had the most pink to give a nice contrast to Batman’s usual black. Guess now the secret is out, the Dark Knight where’s Pink when he’s off duty.
I am certain there are better examples of this assignment out there, but I am pleased. With the tutorial this was a low stress assignment for me!
