My message for my final photo is anti-littering. I believe this message is important to get out because every day I see the earth decay a little more, as more litter get thrown about. I read on the news how things are just getting worse. Animals are going extinct, and if this continues, so will we. When my audience view my photo, I want them to realize how much this rubbish is contributing to the climate change and pollution, the reason why many species are extinct. I want them to see how this needs to be stopped.
For my final photo, I photographed rubbish I saw as I went around in Chicago and Evanston. I tried to capture a raw view of what is really present in our world.
To edit it, I thought it was powerful as is. I placed a filter overtop, to really emphasize the mellowness of the situation. I kept the feet in, as I thought it was a nice symbol of how people just sit back and watch as the planet deceases.
Littering is a very important topic that generally just gets ignored. This is important to me because every day I see the earth decay a little more, as more litter gets thrown about. I read on the news how things are just getting worse. Almost half of Americans have admitted to littering, and every year in America alone more than 250 million tons of trash is produced. Animals are going extinct, and if this continues, so will we. I want people to realize how much this rubbish is contributing to climate change and pollution. This needs to be stopped!
