FINAL PROJECT PHOTOGRRAHY
I was inspired by a music called Beyond our Dream. This music is about lifestyle.
In this picture, the door represents the darkness of hers thoughts. The wall cracks represents a lock, after she escapes from the darkness, in the end, the wall will crack. The hands represent the difficult life are always with us and never stop it since we born. She came out from the darkness since there is a lot of hands trying to drag her back to the darkness but she was not afraid and she dealt with it. Her face has 2 different colour lines which are red and blue. Red represent courage and hope as she never gives up even though it is difficult, thus, it is a power when courage and hope contributes to a strong bond. Blue represent calm. Blue colors were chosen because the more experience she gets, the calmer she is. Her eyes tell a lot of stories that had happened to her.
I was doing the makeup of my model, the makeup was quite fun which I liked it.
It takes me a long time when I take photos of my model because I kept using different
equipment of lights which are soft light, hard light, and spotlight.
PROCESS EDITING USING PHOTOSHOP
I started with cropping my model and hands using a pen tool. I adjusted my hands using black and white.
After finish cropping, I chose the cracked wall as my background. I took this photo on the roof of our campus. I was also editing the brightness and contrast of the pictures.
I chose the faded wall I took it in my campus as well.
I only want the texture of the photos, so I cropped the others and kept the textures I want as my parts of the background.
2 different wall textures were combined.
After combining the 2 differents texture of the walls, I realised that the textures is not enough for me to express what I want, so I used the brush tool to do the crack effect and also I adjusted the brightness to make it darker and slightly reduced the contrast as well.
I was playing with the adjustments such as black and white, hue and saturation, brightness and contrast, levels and the others. It is quite fun but it takes a long time for me to adjust everything because I am a beginner, I am not familiar with these tools and adjustments, so I had to try.
Finalize Editing photography
I was done! The editing photography was quite challenging because I was still new to it.
At first, I thought photoshop is easy because I just need to crop photos that I want and edit a bit photos then I am done. But, no, it was so difficult after I started to use it. I am a beginner so I have no idea how to use it, which part I am going to start to edit and crop and what kinds of tools I need to use. I was so angry at first because I do not know how to use it and I redid my assignment which was wasting my time. But in the end, I learned from tutorials on youtube. I am getting to know how to use it. I am so happy I am done with my final photography assignment in the end. Now, I am enjoying to use Photoshop for editing. I will keep on practicing to improve my photo editing skills.
