Description: A project that showcases photography and design talents.
Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): I first decided on an analogous color scheme featuring green, lime, and yellow. I want something natural and positive to showcase and I felt this color scheme gave that impression. After I obtained my photograph, I put it into Photoshop and used the Levels, Vibrance/Saturation, Selective Color, and Sharpen Tools. I really had a challenge with using the sharpen tool. I kept overdoing the middle of the flower. I am so glad that I used different layers! I then looked at the size of the picture and decided to add repeating boxes around the photo. I then looked at the focal point and flow and decided to align my quote with the edge of the flowers where my eye was lead after the focal point. I used the color wheel that was provided to find colors that matched the colors in my photo. I have learned a lot about photography and Photoshop with this assignment!
Message: I worked to create a natural and positive poster that would catch the eye and send a encouraging thought.
Audience: Anyone interested in nature and beauty
Top Thing Learned: How to use Photoshop to improve my photographs.
