The Story Behind The Story
My friend Sean Prin has been sick the last few days and my roommates and I have forced him to wear a mask and maintain a a 3 ft radius from anyone of us. These tactics are in an effort to keep the rest of us healthy. His face of amazement and disbelief stems from the moment I told him that he no longer has to wear the mask. After much consideration, my roommates and I agreed that the sickness was no longer contagious so he was no longer a threat to our health. This is what friends are for…looking after each other for the better of everyone.
The Process, Narrated
I took two pictures of my friend Sean and matched to the appropriate emojis. I simply took the photos with my iPhone, emailed the images to myself and downloaded the images. Then I searched the matching emojis on google images and found the ones I wanted and downloaded those to my desktop. I uploaded the images directly into my blog post. I arranged the corresponding photos horizontally so as to show which emoji goes with what photo. Here a few photos documenting my process.
