Evaluation:

Overall, I am really happy with my final outcome for this project. I feel that I have completed my brief effectively and have fulfilled the project brief as well.

I have learnt and achieve the work in post that I wanted to teach myself and experiment with, however I feel as though I could have pushed this to the limit and experimented further within my work.

Other than that however, I am really pleased with my final images and am really happy with the quality of them, despite not being shot on the Phase One despite numerous attempts to use it. 

I feel that my research and my work fulfils the brief that I wrote myself and that my images work as stand alone pieces and as a whole spread together.

To conclude further and to read in further detail my project report looks further into the problems and the positives that I had throughout this project. But as a whole I am really happy with my final selection of photographs and the final spread that I have created.

One Small Problem…

One thing I have noticed whilst experimenting with my images within In-Design is that all of the final images I have edited have been taking within a portrait theme, Not landscape. I have shot myself in the foot slightly by doing this but the landscape images I did take are no where near as strong images. 

It’s not a massive problem however and the images I have got to work with will create a strong spread.

Fashion Spread

As I am producing a fashion spread which would be found in a magazine, I have designed my layout within In-Design.

Step One: Firstly, I opened up my chosen image.

Step Two: I then opened up the textured image which I was going to use and dragged it onto my original image.

Step Three: Then using the layer blending options, I selected soft light.

Step Four: From selecting soft light, from this screen shot you can see what it did to the selected layer.

Step Five: Then on the same layer, I created a new layer mask in order to paint on where I wanted the background.

Step Six: From painting on this background, you can see that I made sure the textured wasn’t on my model.

Step Seven: This is the finished version of this image, you can see the slight difference in the background from Step One, And I feel that this actually works really well. The texture isn’t too overwhelming as I didn’t want the image to look too over worked, especially as this is the first time I have worked with textures within photoshop.
