activity5.7 Faking It!


Take a digital photo of yourself or a friend and one of a toy superhero, alien creature, monster or supernatural being. Plan the poses carefully so that the fake picture is as convincing as possible. You might storyboard or sketch out the final design before taking the photos to make this easier.

Alternatively, you could use bitmaps from scanned sources if you don't have models available e.g. an illustration, your own drawing or download an image from the internet. You could also find an image of a suitable background scene. Remember to add these to your sources log. Use a selection tool to cut out the alien figure and the human one and combine them with the new background as realistically as possible. Save your work as fake1. Don't forget to save the work in the SPP editable file format, as well as exporting it as a JPEG for general use.
