A Photodesign that utilizes good photography and design skills to create a poster that shows a consistent color scheme
Well-written process (Programs/tools/skills/FOCUS principles)
I had a hard time find something I could photograph, until I remembered my Dad and his Ford Bronco. It was the perfect subject, with a distinctive color scheme, and I could make a idea to go with it. I was able to get a picture of it, and then I did the following.
- After I took a picture, I brought it into Photoshop, and I applied the filters necessary, and then I started to mess around with color and vibrancy a little bit, to get the colors to pop.
- Then, using the quick select tool, I selected the bronco, and brought just the bronco without the background into a blank Photoshop document.
- I then added shapes to cover the blank windows, added a road that matched the colors, and added a quote, keeping with a diagonal alignment.
- I met with my mother, who helped me pick out the quote and refine a few things.
- Facebook Critiques: Hannah Dunlop, and Emily Rose Perkins
- One on One Critique: Mary Walker
- Instructor Critique: The main thing she suggested that I improve was my use of typefaces, choosing two that provided more of a contrast. So I made most of the quote one typeface, and using a more unique one to emphasize a specific part of it.
- Dont be afraid of going too fast. It provides adventure.
- Those who may be too timid to do anything new, and to those who may feel life is too fast.
Top thing learned
- Filters in Photoshop, and how to use my IPhone effectively as a good camera. Saved my bacon with this project.
