This was a lot of fun. We had to use the marquee tool to make thin lines of the colour blocks, and then duplicate them and stretch them. Then, we had to give them a vanishing point and in the end they all looked like they were stretching into the distance.
I really enjoyed this so I even made another one (second photo). I got a bit more ambitious in this one!
If I were to do it again, I would just focus on the colour palettes.
For this tutorial we had to find a panorama photo and then change it so it became 360 degrees. It looked like a little planet!
I chose a panorama of snow-capped mountains and the sea, because I thought it would make for a beautiful little planet and it did.
The steps were very easy. I only had to rotate the image, change the height to the same measurement as the width and then distort it. Then, I just tidied up where the the two ends of the photo met using the healing tool.
It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it. It’s a nice simple process that makes sweet photos.
If I were to do it again, I would use a city-scape.
For this activity, we had to split our face in half and then flip one side to make a symmetrical face.
Turns out I’d look awful if my face was symmetrical!
I learned how to flip images and position them on another canvas. It was quite difficult to position the other side perfectly onto the second side, as it wasn’t perfectly split. It was a lot of fun, though, and even though it was quick, it was easy and perhaps the funniest activity we’ve done.
There were many steps and processes we had to take to create the final piece on photoshop.
I’ve never really used photoshop before, so creating layers and using brush tools was all new to me.
I think it was a really interesting photo of the skull, so it fit well with the paper background.
If I were to do it again, I would perhaps change where the light comes from and also I would try and make the paper look a bit better. I messed something up at the beginning with the paper and it wasn’t possible to get it back to how it was before without losing everything.
For this activity we had to take pictures of miniature models close up to make them look life-size. We did this by holding the camera closely to the models and either shooting from eye-level or from below. This made the models seem bigger.
If I were to do this again, I would change the focus. When I was taking the picture I didn’t really think about it, and then when I got back I realised that the dragon and car were out of focus and the background was in focus, when it should have been the other way around.
For this activity, we had to take a head shot, a shot of our middle, and a photo of our feet. Each photo had to have something that represented us.
For my head shot, I was smiling.
For the middle shot, I chose the photo where I was wearing a hoodie that reads: UNITE AGAINST RACISM. I also have my hand on my hip to try and show off the ring I’m wearing; it’s a Union Jack heart-shaped ring ‘coz I’m English ;)
For the photo of my feet, I chose the photo where I’m wearing my boots, because my friends make fun of me for wearing them so much.
I learned how to crop the images and resize them and then put them all on the same canvas!
If I were to do this again, I would perhaps bring a prop.
