I have about 10 projects that are mid-stream but not completed, so this week I’m calling myself out so you don’t have too – I’m phoning it in. The abstract above started with paint on the wall of a building (another instance of when Peter has walked up behind me and asks, “what on earth are you taking a picture of?”). At some point, he should stop asking me that……
I brought this image into Photoshop and first applied the Pinch filter a few times – I just kept repeating the command until it was “pinched” enough. Then I applied the Distort filter (noting the number of degrees I distorted the image), and then applied the Distort filter again – but in the opposite direction for same number of degrees. Once I was happy with the result, I modified the Hue through the Hue Saturation layer to add more color (the original image had muted browns.)
Visual Toolkit Project Update: Week 6
This week was about isolating subjects using a wide-angle lens (instead of a telephoto). This meant getting very close. I decided to try out my new iphone lenses (Olloclip) and get reacquainted with the creativity available through the apps. To be honest, I am buried at work, and in my photography work, so I have not been allowing myself to go out and play much until I get caught up. Here are the pics from this week – not my strongest showing.
