I used the clone stamp tool in my first image. I thought it would be neat to fill a lot of space with repetitive pieces of the subjects’ faces. I cropped and resized the photo to focus more on the kiss. Once I selected an area to clone, I learned I could rotate it any way I liked, so I did. I used the eraser to get rid of the standard circular stamp shape and frame the faces in different ways.

I used the quick selection tool to select the faces in my second image. I was originally just going to completely remove them, but once I hit ‘delete’ I was given the option to fill the faces with something else. I opted for the brick pattern because I like the bit of color it adds to the image.

I like that the characters are making eye contact with each other in this third image. Since a kiss appears imminent, I decided to force their mouths together with the smudge tool. The way Clark looms over Vivien makes the resulting image kind of creepy.
