Paper Plate Skulls

We took an idea from Darrell Wakelam to make some Day of the Dead skulls from paper plates.

We then took it a bit further taking photos of ourselves in front of the green screen. In Keynote we added backgrounds, our pictures and photos of our masks.

We used instant alpha to remove backgrounds to create interesting pictures.

A bit of fun but learning about layers and opacity. We also got the images from unsplash so they are copyright free. We also read about the the Day of the dead festival.

We told Darrell we had used his idea and this is what he said:

Halloween Costumes Plus

Last week we had our Banton Halloween Party. The costumes showed some great creativity. This week we are adding some digital creativity too.

We took pictures of the pupils in front of a green screen, the class used their picture in Keynote. They removed the green background using the instant alpha feature  and added a suitable background.

We use pictures from unsplashed and from flickr we understand that we need permission and that some photos need to be attributed.
