I think this is one of the most difficult projects so far this semester. I really wanted to do something unique with the lighting in my portraits but I think I just ended up messing them up. I’m still getting used to the settings on my camera but I really like photoshop. I was able to edit out blemishes on my friends faces and add light and more interesting elements. I spent most of my time editing, but I think I’ll stick to natural light next time.
So the object that I chose to get perspective on is my record player. I love this object because It’s one of my prized possessions. Since it isn’t one of the newer players that you see in stores now, there were a lot of interesting components to it that I haven’t noticed before. I used my canon T6 and placed the record player on the floor of my apartment living room by the window for natural light. I mostly used the shallow techniques we learned about last week. For the masking overlay, which is in the individual picture of the needle,I used a chemical burn and masked it to look almost like a soft sun flare. I really enjoyed this project and though it was really unique.
Here is a thumbnail of the chemical burn texture:
The first two pictures I used F 10 to get the focus smaller, and rested the camera on a desk. The second two were my depth photo’s that I took while standing on a chair so I could get a more interesting point of view. I also used a F 22 for these as well. Flash was used for all of the picture except the third one with the Christmas lights.

- Description: A spiritual poster depicting Christ
- Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, Steps taken while designing):Photo shop was used. I started by opening the picture of Christ. I then added a picture of waves ad used the masking tool to blend it with Christ. I then added another picture of wave and repeated the masking steps. To finish it off i used the brush tool and blended the blue in the waves with the rest of the picture.
- Message: The waves blend into Christ’s face and the message “be still” is describing how, with Him, we can be calm and our trials will ease.
- Audience: All audiences.
- Top Thing Learned: I really like the masking tool and I played around with this project a lot. My draft was a completely different picture and design, but once I got a hang of the tools and program, I got inspired to do something else.
- Filter / Colorization used and where it was applied: I used the brush tool and matched a few colors in the waves to blend them into Christ’s face.
- Color scheme and color names: Monochromatic color scheme and the color was blue.
