This projected stemmed from the idea of learning photo-manipulation. I wanted to teach myself how to rearrange, color adjust/balance, work with depth of field, and overall experiment with the current tools inside Adobe Photoshop.

All I did was google some random images and said to myself “here’s what I have to work with, let’s do it.” After about an hour or two of staring at a screen, I came up with this.
