Set in the Street

     For this project we took the idea of the album “Set in the Street” by Justin Bettman and combined it with the Kitchen Table album by Carrie Mae Weems. We did the same thing that Justin’s album did and we set up a scene of a kitchen table, but we were really in a school. After we took all our photos, we then edited them to look like Carrie Mae Weems photos. Before we started to use any of the tools, we first had to turn the photos black and white. After we had to use the marquee tool in order to select the lower 2/3’s of the photo. We then inverted the marquee so it would select the top 1/3 of the photo, and once it was selected we had to mess around with the darkness levels of the top of the photos; in order for them to look more like Carrie Mae Weems photos. Finally, if were to take photos of my family in a a place that tells my family’s story, I would take the photos in my moms room. I would take my photos here because this is were my family meets most of the time, this is where we are the most together (for the most part).
