When I started thinking of what I brought to the table as a creator, I was lost, while some people are experienced in photography or incredible painters, my star quality was that I was just a creative mind. As I worked and thought about what my project would be, I simply didn’t know what to do. This project came to mind as I mindlessly started to try to edit photos, a skill many of my peers had been working on for years before me. When I originally had this idea it was only a picture with a poorly placed stamp and a corny inspirational quote but as I continued to work, learn and think about my project I realized that I wanted to put more effort into it than Paint 3D allowed so I deleted some of my work and started to learn Adobe Photoshop, making this project something I was proud of.
As I worked more and more I learned that what I really wanted was something that took more effort than I previously was planning on using but instead of just turning in something that I didn’t like, I once again deleted my work in favor of another format. As I brainstormed ideas of ways to make my project more presentable with my classmates I realized what I really wanted to do was to make not only a front for the postcards but also a back as you would see on a legitimate postcard.
The point of this project was to show that even without a high-quality camera or years of experience in photoshop you can still make a project worth being proud of.
