Well well well good old photoshop. Took a bit rebooting (my brain that is!), but with the help of Caryline (my ever so patient teacher) i was able to complete all my exercises. I definitely will have a go with these so that i am able to navigate through photoshop easier.
The photos are from the photoshop exercises we did in class.
f/3.5, 1/500, ISO 200
Below is textured image placed over a portrait. The texture photo i
used was a piece of wood. I tried other texture photos i had taken, but
it didn't really work.
This was pretty cool, it took a few goes to get it right - i can see that i didn't get the textured part right on the edge. I would definitely do this again and try and not have any of the face edge clear.
f5.0, 1/15, ISO 100
This was cool, converting to black and white using the B&W adjustment layer. I felt like i was actually painting the colour on to the bag. I had to zoom right in and try and stay within the lines. I really like this, and i know i will be playing around with this feature.
