Altered Image

 In my altered image project, I wanted to completely change the tone of a recognizable image. The concept of a wedding came to my mind because although weddings are rarely associated with any emotion besides happiness, many marriages end in divorce. I changed the colors and a few textures in the photo to give the image a more sad tone. I also replaced the smiling bride’s face with my own unhappy and almost scared face. During our critique, Abby commented that this image seems like a moment in between happy wedding pictures, when the cameras aren’t supposed to be on but just happen to catch the bride’s real feelings. That is what I meant to portray with this piece, a moment of uncertainty and truth during a typically happy event.
