Due to the inclement weather, you will have the option of taking photos outside (if you so choose), or editing any photos you took last class. This blog post reviews how to convert an image to black and white, adjust levels, and how to use the pen tool to path out part of a photograph to create a composite image.
Remember to make a new blog post with today’s work and a brief reflection.
Today we will:
- Either take photos outside or edit the photos taken last class
- Create a new blog post with the following:
- Images of today’s work
- The answers to the following questions:
- What aspect’s of your photographer’s style have been easy to mimic?
- What aspect’s of your photographer’s style have been challenging to mimic?
- What changes might you make next class to better mimic your photographer’s style? (ex. request to shoot in a different location, bring bright hats and accessories for your models to wear, conscientiously place your subjects against solid backgrounds, etc.)
- What adjustments have you been able to make (or plan to make) in Photoshop to better mimic your photographer’s style?
