Description: This project was to demonstrate photoshop editing skills, photography skills, as well as incorporating color.
Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): My project began with choosing a color scheme. I went with violet shades based on objects that I was brainstorming with. I used the FOCUS principles from my text book to help me formulate and decide on a plan for my design. I used my Canon Rebel T2i to shoot some photos. After I decided on the photo I wanted I opened it into photoshop and edited it using these 4 editing tools: level, sharpness, saturation, and color balance. Next, I opened up an 8 1/2 x 11 layout to begin designing with my photo, text, and shapes. I used color swatches and the color dropper to match and pull colors directly from my image. I designed my shapes and patterned them after the wood flooring. I created different layers for each of the rectangles that I created with the rectangle tool.
Message: This beauty poster is intended to be an positive message with a sophisticated vogue feel.
Audience: For ladies and anyone fashion forward.
Top Thing Learned: I learned how to plan a vision and execute it from picking my color scheme, the actual photo shoot, and then editing in photoshop afterwards.
