Project 2 Process & Reflection
After the eye was created, I added the newspaper clippings, made sure they covered the entire background and distorted their perspective to warp the text and the overall appearance. After that I used blending modes (multiply), to blend the texts into the background color. I then placed the solved cubes into the file and clipped, blurred, and added drop shadows to them. I then added the pill bottle, jazz shoe tips, credit card, rose petal note, and coins to the project, and blended them in using various effects, filters, and adjustment settings. Once all my items were in place and made to blend more smoothly with my overall project, I added a few last touches and then my work was complete. Something I struggled with while doing this project was creating a concept, and being able to collect things that represented my ideas. I also had a little trouble with placement.
Overall, this project was a very fun and interesting way to dive back into Photoshop for me. I was able to touch up on my skills, learn new things, and also challenge myself with a very thoughtful project. Overall I think my final piece came out similar to what I had in mind, minus a few small details, and I am happy with it.
