For Project 3, I created a collage in Photoshop CS5 depicting the element of proportion.  I decided to base my collage on a circus because of the surreal atmosphere a circus can create.  I played with the proportions of the people and animals to create a surreal composition that i felt reflected the circus atmosphere.  As one of my first experiences in Photoshop, I struggled with understanding the different tools and techniques.  My biggest problems were importing images at the right size–to fit cohesively with piece.  Through the project, I learned many of the basics of Photoshop and created a piece that successfully demonstrated proportion.
