Music is an important part of who I am and what I do, and the photos in the collage represent the groups I work with on a regular basis. The beginner band is pictured at top left, with the advanced band in the bottom left corner. Our church band is shown at top right. My fourth grade music class/choir is in the bottom right. I am at the center with the trumpet. This particular photo shows how I usually spend my time with the church band – playing with my right hand and directing with my left.
I used a music staff as a border because music is a big part of pretty much everything I do. The white staff blends in with the white page background, giving the feeling that the five separate images float on the page. I used Fireworks to create this image. I hope to learn much more about graphic design during this class!
