For this assignment I took a picture of myself and then a picture of me holding this ball. I combined the pictures together to create something unusual. I used the extract tool to erase everything else but my eyes and mouth so I could later combine it with the ball. I used the gradient tool to make both pictures blend together. I left the opacity pretty low so that it blended together better. To give the photo a little more depth, I added shadows to give it a more realistic look. Lastly, I played with adjustment layer filters to make the image pop as a whole.
