Fashion photographers use photoediting to enhance certain images, create a mood, or add artistic effects to imagery. In this particular image I want to enhance the reflection in the model’s retro sunglasses, drawing attention to this particular detail while making everything else secondary. The method that works the best for me (there are many ways to do this) was to edit in Lightroom, then Photoshop, and then open it up in Lightroom again. Using this workflow I got some amazing results. Image editing takes patience, skill, and lot of time…I tell my non photo friends “being a photographer is not easy!” I like this result even more than the black and white treatment I’d used previously.
I’m working on a poster project for a photoshop class. The task is to create a large poster with a word and fill the word with images, words, phrases that correspond to the chosen word. This is my first draft…I’m thinking my version is more visual / has more of a photographic element. I’m a photographer so I need to see images when I work in photoshop. The good news: my instructor gave me positive feedback on my rough draft.
My creative process…I began with the word joy. After reading a book by Joyce Meyer and seeing such gloom and doom in the news I want to focus on something positive. I think people can use a pickup. Using tools like laughter to embrace joy and happiness to help make sense of these difficult times.
