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.
I think this picture can represent cluttered because the place I shot is messy, and dirty. You can see a box, a bottle, newspapers, leaves, and papers on the ground. I also intentionally over contrast the photo to make the things on the ground clearer.
This is a photo of my wax paper to diffuse the light of my lamp. Here is a zoom out picture of this:
I think this is can represent the word texture because I can clearly see the pattern of this wax paper. I also think that showing the texture of the wax paper is really unique. Therefore, I chose this picture as my texture assignment.
This photo was also took in the foggy day last week. I think this can represent shape because the light brighten the tree, so I can see the shape of it. But everything else is blurry and cloudy.
I think this is a good photo of silhouette because this is a good picture of poor exposure but it is good enough to see the two person’s silhouette.
This is my friend in Renaissance Festival. A woman with a wreath is beautiful. How about a cute looking man with a wreath? Better!
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 .
The man in this photo represents a person that is addicted to cigarettes. While having a break to catch some fresh air, the man chooses to have a cigarette. The expression of the man in picture number four and five (start counting from the upper lefthand corner to the bottom righthand corner) show how addicted he is, willing to sacrifice his fresh air for nicotine. By the time he finishes the cigarette he disappears in the dark to continue doing his work.
Thanks M.W. for helping me shoot this precious series of photos.
This is a photo I snapshoted a minute before the sun went down. I think this represents serenity because usually when you think about sunset, it is a time when people finish working and settle back home. The mother nature turns back to serenity.
I took this photo because I want to shoot some really cool blurry pictures by lowering the shooting speed of my camera in a really dim situation (the only light source is the Macbook Pro). I took this photo by the help of my roommate in our dorm.
