This Project is Complete, On to the Next One

The last time I wrote about my Pictorialism project in Photoshop class, I was trying to decide which prints to turn in.  I decided on six of them, and of those six, four were chosen to be put on display in the hallway at school.  Of those two, two of them are portraits of my children, so I won’t be posting them here. The two others, you have seen on this blog as they were being created, and here they are on the wall:

ISO 400 4mm 0ev f/2.7 1/30

ISO 400 4mm 0ev f/2.7 1/30

ISO 400 4mm 0ev f/2.7 1/30

ISO 400 4mm 0ev f/2.7 1/30

I first wrote about the bird here.  The version that you see above had an additional step before I printed that I had not written about in that post.  I added another layer in Photoshop. Basically I duplicated the file and changed the blending mode to multiply which made the print darker.  I thought this was necessary because the original print turned out to yellow in my opinion.

The tree I wrote about in a post where I showed a few different versions.  The blue version that is on the wall is also a darker version of what I had originally shown.  I decided I really wanted a deeper shade of blue and so I used a levels adjustment to make it darker, and I also darkened the edges of the photo.

So, this project is complete, come full circle, you might even say.  I’m started now on my next project which is food photography.  I’m sure I’ll be posting about it in the coming weeks.

I know it’s not a major exhibit, but it is always fun to see your work on display don’t you think?

Cheers!

Now, the Next Step

I’ve been writing lately about a project I am working on for my Photoshop class. I’d like to thank everyone who has offered an opinion about my various creations.  Well, today I was in the print lab and created these:

ISO 100 7mm 0ev f/4 1/13

ISO 100 7mm 0ev f/4 1/13

Now the question is, which version of these various prints am I going to turn in? I have these out on my table and will be looking at them over the next few days to figure out what will be turned in and if any of them need to be printed again.  To add to the challenge, I have two different types of paper!

For the photo above I used my point and shoot, sometimes that small camera is the best for telling the story of my day.  Do you have a small camera that you carry everywhere?

Cheers!
