Reflection: How does this image show your hidden self?
This image shows my hidden self by showing things most people don't know about me. For instance, the frog to show that I like finding little creatures like that. Also, the clock, the Younge St. sign, and Toronto to show that I always think about my future. A few other things some people might not know about me are that I love to play badminton and soccer, I like air planes, and if I could, I would read more.
What aspect of your image do you find the most successful and why?
I find the successful aspect about my image is that it lets the viewer's eye flow around easily because of the angles of the images and the lines in the objects. Also, I think I did well to use complementary colours (blue and orange) in the image.
What aspect of your image do you find least successful and why?
The aspect I find least successful in my image is the amount of commotion going on in the bottom right corner. Maybe I have too many layers (i.e. the trees, the city, the badminton birdies, and the clock) all in one spot.
If you could do this project again what changes would you make to improve it?
If I could do this project again, I would rearrange things and make different, more important objects bigger. For example, I might make the Younge St. sign bigger and maybe flip my portrait and put it more to the left. Also, I would use a different picture of birds.
What are five interesting things most people don't know about you? 1. I love my sports i.e. swimming, running, badminton, and especially soccer. 2. I love finding small creatures like frogs and salamanders! 3. I think about my future constantly, Bruce County is definitely just temporary. 4. I blush at EVERYTHING, which is irritating. 5. I hardly ever watch TV, it makes me feel lazy.
What are three things that your friends would say about your personality? My friends would probably say: 1. I'm a loyal friend. 2. I'm an optimistic person. 3. I'm very understanding.
Is there anything that you wish you could change about yourself or show more of the world? I would cut my hair short. I'd like to read much more than I do. I wish I had the patience for cooking, because I really like food! (Plus it's kind of a necessary skill to have when living on your own, which I'm really looking forward to). I would like to be less shy/self conscious. I'd like to be a morning person. I wish I could dedicate myself to running daily. I'd be more open about who I am. I'd stop being silently competitive and comparing myself to other people, I'm so bad for that.
What are your five biggest goals/dreams for your future? 1. I'd like to become a professional photographer. 2. I want to live near Toronto, I think. 3. I want to travel and take pictures all over the world (although I don't take any interest in learning other languages :s) 4. I wish to continue playing soccer competitively. 5. I'd love to own a small air plane!
In summary, I'm an active, optimistic, understanding, and creative person who is always anticipating the future. I want to experience the diversity of Toronto and the world.
