<ul><li>For the following project, we were asked to take several photos and successfully edit them to a professional standard. Out of the choices given I have chosen to look at the subject off green with hints of a diary of a student, this has given me a vast range of photo opportunities. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Using various techniques within my chosen Photoshop program I was able to edit this photo to add more colour while keeping the original context of the photo. </li></ul>
<ul><li>With this photo I used a vast range of effects to change the photo to suit the desired look, </li></ul>For the subject I used the colour pencil effect to to make the image look slightly blurred For this I used the cling film effect to cover the windows and doors, this allowed for a ripple effect along the windows For the walls and plants I used a mixture off pastels and the blur effects to provide a distilled image
<ul><li>While in this picture I used the close up option and changed the focus to make the background slightly blurry, while keeping the main subject of the plants in focus. </li></ul>In this image I used the magnetic crop tool to allow me to select the plant and use the Glowing edges effect. This has given a contracting look on to both the life of a student and the green topic.
<ul><li>For this photo I have used no editing effects, but instead used the available functions on the camera. Here I used the close up function, while changing the focus of the camera to bring out the main subject more. </li></ul>
<ul><li>For this photo I used the Close Up function off the camera, while making sure the whole image is in focus. </li></ul>To edit this photo I used the magnetic crop tool, to high light the selected area, in which then I added a black and white effect to allow the flower to stand out against the background .
<ul><li>For this photo I used the sports function within the camera, this allows me to take quick action snaps such as the subject jumping in the air. </li></ul>For this photo my main aim was to experiment with the subject and a contrast of colours. The photo both fits in with the subject of green and student life as it features both a student and the university itself.
<ul><li>Special thanks Andrew Jarred for featuring in two photos. </li></ul><ul><li>The University of Chester for providing the camera to take the photos and the appropriate Photoshop program. </li></ul>
