By listening to the student tutorials and exploring Photoshop more in depth, I created a self-portrait for my final project.  The basic idea for my project stemmed from my interest in typography and how text can be used in a composition.  I used the text tool to create a layer over my face that included many of my life stories, goals, and some of my favorite quotes.  My biggest problem with this project was deciding what I wanted to do, and how far to go with it.  If I were to redo this project, I would probably add another layer of text in the background which would create a composition with more movement.  With the tutorials, both online and in class, I was able to further my knowledge and understanding of photoshop and create a self-portrait that reflected myself.
