Self Portrait

This is the 3 original photos that I took:

 

 

And this is the what I did to them:

What I basically did is:

 

 

The photo that I am sitting is the top layer, then the black and white one, then the pinkish one.

I first adjust the brightness/contrast and the level of the three photos due to the fact that my camera chooses different amount of exposure for each photo. I then turn the color of the photo that I am pretending to smoke to a black and white one, and change the hue and saturation of the photo that I was in my halloween costume (which I am a dinosaur) in to an extreme pinkish color. After that, I make the black and white one into an oil painting texture, and liquified the pinkish photo. By finishing all of these steps, I carefully erased the first layer; therefore, I can have the other two pictures appear in the whole frame. I also mosaic the girl that is sitting behind me.

Original – Contrast


I discovered this photo after I finished taking a bunch of photos of my roommate with a mask on. In this photo, my roommate was taking off the mask that I gave him while the light was hitting on the mask and his face. I think this is a great picture about contrast because the dark background contrasts the mask and the face of him, which strongly made my roommate look serious/creepy .
