I’ve already done my 3 assignments, but Bree did this one and I thought it was hilarious– so I had to do it too.
The assignment‘s called “Pick A Bad Photo, Apply A Vintage Effect, And Write Something In Helvetica.”
Not much question about what to do there.
I’m dying over here.
The instructions for this assignment were pretty straightforward. “That’s it. Pick A Bad Photo, Apply A Vintage Effect And Write Something In Helvetica”. That’s verbatim.
I started out with picking my picture. The whole “Bad Photo” thing is incredibly subjective. After thumbing through some pictures I took of a nearly empty trail mix bag, I wasn’t loving its appearance on film. I eventually scrapped the whole idea and went with a picture of me in High School instead (don’t worry, it’s still bad). Then I used this online photo editor by the name of BeFunky. I uploaded my photo from the desktop, then sat, indecisive, staring at the vintage filters until finally making a commitment to “Vintage Filter 1”, and then I added some text, Helvetica of course.
That’s me, in Español class.

I chose to do the assignment where you pick a photo that you felt was bad, edit it with some sort of vintage effect, and add text in the helvetica font.
