Photobombed…? (Unit 5)

This is my attempt at doing the Forest Gump assignment in the ds106 assignment bank. This involved me finding a historic photo and editing myself into it.

I think this photo is great because the two guys at the back just seem that they are not interested in the photo that is being taken. The first thought that came into my head when I saw the guy in the back looking into the sky was ‘It’s a bird, it’s a plane it’s Superman” he just seems utterly distracted and it’s great, he’d rather be anywhere else than taking this photo.

Another reason why I liked this photo is because you could easily insert a picture and it wouldn’t look off to much, there was no changing the angle of the picture to accommodate it. If I hadn’t inserted myself into this picture someone else could have easily been standing there.


The picture above is the picture I had cropped and placed into the old black and white photo. To do this I used photoshop and used the magnetic tool and cropped myself out of the picture, and changed the colour settings on the photo to black and white so I could somewhat fit in with the photo. Unfortunately, I could not get the colours to match but it was the closest I could get it.
