Libra Photos

My project is a manifestation of Libra traits and symbolism. In ancient Egyptian mythology the Libra symbolized the scale which would weigh the heart of the departed against a feather. If your heart was heavier than the feather you would be reincarnated, and if your heart was lighter you would move on to the spirit world. Libras value balance, symmetry and layers. Libra's preferred colors lean towards the indigo, blue, and green areas of the spectrum. I edited and pieced together my photographs to emphasize these Libran traits and values. I learned how to take properly exposed photographs as well as how to use Adobe Lightroom. I spent much of the process using Photoshop to collage and modify my photographs.
