I was very excited I was able to have an excuse to crop myself into a picture with Dominic West. The assignment was to crop yourself into a picture with a celebrity, so to relate this to The Wire and just to show everyone how great we look together I chose I shot of McNulty on the boat.
I used GIMP and the magnetic lasso to crop out the background of a picture of myself so it looked like like this.
The scissor tool was really frustrating me so I didn’t get the straight edges that I would have with that tool, but the lasso worked alright. Then I opened the McNulty picture in another layer and placed my picture on top to make it look like I was holding his arm.
I know everyone is probably starting to think I’m crazy and obsessed. But you know what….. that’s ok.
