typography portrait

For this project, we were to use a self-portrait and make it with text. In order to do this we learned the color values white-black and learned how to make them appear lighter\darker.

For this project, we were assigned partners to do in class portrait photography. From a list of ten, I chose 5 differents ideas for taking pictures: Introduce a Prop, Different  Lighting effects, Break the rules of composition, Act candid, and from an obscure angle. Then, we had to chose 5 of the pictures we took and edit them in camera raw.


In order to make this man look the size of the golf ball, I changed his size with the move and free transform tool.

Skin Softening

For this project, we learned two new tools which are the healing and patch tools. These tools help te elimiate blemishes and clear up someones face.

Fine Arts Festival Poster

This was a poster I designed to be a possible poster of the annual Fine Arts Festival held at Fashion Square Mall every year. I made it by choosing fonts, colors, and texts that would grab ones attention as they walk by without looking messy.

This was just a tutorial I followed in my free time. I used a picture that I took on our trip Downtown. Basically all I did was change the lighting and curves to make the image stand out.

For this project, we were given the option of several ideas to cast a reflection in an image. I chose to do sunglasses and make the girl below appear to be staring off at the beach. It was a simple process and I used the clipping mask tool to get the image in the sunglasses. I used other cool tools such as the gradient tool and effects to make the image look real.

Polaroid Picturesss

For this project, we used David Hockneys style of taking a normal picture and making it look like its made of several polaroid picture. The process was simple and required alot of replicating groups and moving/rotating them elsewhere.


A tree

For this project, we were assigned to take several portraits. For the first picture, I altered the curves in order to get a cross processed look.
For this one, I added an ink sketch to make it look like it was printed in ink.

For this picture, I took an ordinary photo and made it into a stamp/brush.
This picture was a free one, that we could chose what we did too. I only altered theblacks and whites to get this effect.

On a recent trip downtown we were given a scavenger hunt to take pictures of. Once back, we were to make five of them into a find the difference game by using the clone/ color changing tools. Can you find the changes in my pictures?:

Photo Aging

For this assignment, we were told to make a new picture look old. In order to find the right picture, I had to find one that contained anything modern. Since I had a picture of an old type writer, I decided to make it look like it was taken yearssss ago. Some brushes I were the coffee stain, ripped, and scratches so that it would look worn.

Collage Art

I chose to replicate Jennifer Bailey work, a fashion artsy collage designer. I used different effects to make images look like they were torn from a magazine.

hands at work.

For this project, we had a shooting assignment which was to take pictures of hands doing something. Then, we had to select three images to cool, warm, and use a gradient tool.
For this image, I chose to warm it by using the layer adjustments.

For this one, I used the Gradient Map layer adjustment then added splashes of color with the layer mask.

And for this last image, I chose to cool it bt using the cool layer adjustment.

RaDiAl LiGhT

For this project, we learned a new tool which was the Pen. First, I had to make an S then, there was alot of duplicating and rotating layers to make the round shape. Once that was done, I added light to the back with the Gradient tool and adjusted to the color I wanted.
--this one is the second one I did that had alot more layers to it.
--the first one one, more simple with not as many layers


Typography is arranging letters and numbers so that they  make an image. Below, I used several letters to make a duck on a farm. In order to get certain effects(the ground), i used a skew tool.

macro, sharrp

In order to take these pictures cso close-up, I had to use a macro setting on my camera. In order to sharpen the image-reduce blurryness, I sharped the image and used a high pass to clarify it.

Wednesday, October 27, 2010


This was a project done for our midterms. I used the selection tool, refine edge, shadows, and move tool to create this image.

MACRO shooting

What's Macro? Macro is a setting on your camera that allows you to take a closer than usual picture of something and still turn out clear. Some things I want to take pictures of in the macro setting are plants and other everyday items. When an image is really close up as in the Macro setting, it's often hard to tell what it is but once you know, it suprises you what something looks like close-up.

Heres three images found off of the internet taken in a macro setting.

This is an image taken in Macro of three lady bugs. Because they are right behind each other, it creates a line. Also, since the picture is so close, you can see the texture of the surface.

This is a Macro image of some sort of fish. The eye has lot's of lines and patterns in it. The skin(or scales) around the eye show some texture as well.

This photo, which you probably wouldn't guess, is a butterflys wing. It shows the texture, line, and pattern that most people fail to see when they see a butterfly from a distance.
