The Typewriter

I found this wonderful typewriter while exploring a thrift store close to my home. I discovered that it served as a wonderful model for my camera. Below are my best photos that I am proud to present to everyone.

Close up and Personal

This week for my digital imaging class we were to take macro shots of 4 subjects; a fruit and or plant with water drops on them and 2 other subjects without water drops. For three of my photos I set up a shot where the subjects were in front of a black background to add contrast. Using a lamp that gave off a yellow light, I took pictures using canon macro extension tubs. I then edited them in Photoshop so that subjects could standout in the dark.  For my last photo I took an up-close photo of the scales of snake from a reptile expo in Utah.

Perspective of 12

The following is a perspective of 12 project I did for my digital imaging class. I chose a subject and shot pictures of it from 12 different angles and edited them on Photoshop. The following are original images taken on a Canon DSLR.

It was fairly easy to blend these images. After I finalized the level edits of my original photo, I created a second layer in my Photoshop pallet and added the marble texture. After masking that layer I used the brush to brush away the marble until it fit perfectly where the table was originally. Then I used the contrasting effect to give the marble texture a little bit more color.

Depth- Deep and Shallow

The following images are original images taken on my DSLR Canon Camera.

During my digital imaging class, we were instructed to go outside and practice taking shallow depth photos. I found this patch of flowers and felt drawn to take a photo of this one. It breaks the rule of thirds ( just a little), but fits perfectly in the photo frame. I used Photoshop to increase the contrast, brighten the colors, and used content- aware to erase some distracting colors.

 

 

chess

This image was trickier to set up. I grabbed an old chess board and had my roommate knock the king over with the opposite queen piece. The movement was ruining the photo so we simply put a piece of tape under the king and stuck it on to make it looked like it was fall over by the queen. I then used Photoshop to increase the contrast and make the shot brighter.

This is one of the walkways on my campus ground.  I set my settings to make sure not to allow so much light due to the brightness of the sun. During the Photoshop process I had to repeatedly use content-aware to remove the specks of sun that fell onto the lens.

I tried to get a deep photo of another walkway and my campus’s football field. As I did with my other deep photo, I used content aware to remove all sun specks that fell on the camera. I also fixed the coloring of the photo so that the colors would be brighter than they originally were.
