Photoshop Tutorial

This week we had to choose our own photoshop tutorial online and do it in class. So everyone was working on a different project. I chose "How To Create a Mental Sphere" 
I started out finding a background picture of some mountains and adjusted it to the correct image size. Then i took a picture of Jessica at a cheer practice this week. I photoshopped the background out and put her in the middle of the mountain background. Then I followed the steps online, using image glow and different filters. (The finished photo on the website looks slightly different then my finished photo)

Photo #6, Food

This week i chose to shoot photo #6 for food. A couple friends and I went to Godiako Friday night so I decided to take pictures of the sushi! It was really hard for me to get a good picture because im so shaky when i take macro photos, so this was my best photo. I also went back after photo critiques and edited my final photo so take some of the yellow out of it. (That's why the final photo is different then the ones in my slideshow)

Visual Puns!

 In this photoshop assignment we had to use photos to explain puns, mine were doctor pepper, fruit flies, and killer whale.

Visual Dictionary

For our photoshop assignment this week we had to work on defining a word using photos, using photoshop to add all the photos to one. Including the word and it's definition. These are my three words, love, power and thirst!

Photo #5, Black and White

This week I chose to do Black and White for my photo 5 assignment. For some, I went through my library and used pictures with dull color that i haven't used, cropped and made them black and white and added them to my album.

I still went around the school and took a few pictures that i wanted to use for the album. But I chose this as my final photo because it shows black and white, macro, and a cool depth of field.

Portrait Demo

Over the week in class we were shown how to shoot portraits in two ways. The first way was in a "studio". The setup had three light sources; key light, back light, and hair light. The second way we were taught was to shoot with light from the window, and then have a piece of white poster board and hold it near the face to get rid of the shadow on the subjects face.
Here is the finished project in photoshop of my two best pictures!

School Context

For this assignment we had to take a simple picture of the school, and add to it. Make it look like something you would never actually at the school. I chose a panoramic that i look outside the school, and added my favorite movie characters to it from Up. We used photoshop to add and edit the pictures onto ours.
Here is my final photo!
