REFLECTION
The best AND hardest part of the photoshop unit was the photo-montage. I enjoyed this part the most because it was challenging, but the end result was worth it. During this unit, I learned a lot that I didn't know before. For example, masking, adjustment layers, and the pen tool were all new to me. The most useful would have to be the pen tool because it allows me to select things like the lasso tool...but i can always deselect points.
I really enjoyed the photoshop unit because I've always found photoshop to be quite interesting. I have always wanted to edit the candid photos that I take and now, I finally have the tools to do it properly. This unit relates to my life because it has helped to improve the quality of my photos.
