This semester WA Prep was excited to add Digital Photography to the arts course offerings. After practicing their composition and shooting skills they transitioned into using digital editing with Photopea. In their second editing project students used their new skills to create parodies of real magazines with their own images and concepts. After carefully studying the typefaces and layouts students composed remarkably convincing magazine covers that were worthy of a doubletake. The best part of this project was how varied each result was, showcasing not only the student’s interests and aesthetics, but also their sense of humor. Some chose to recycle their past photography into these new projects, while others were inspired to work with photos they had taken outside of class of pets, or vacation moments.
