This is my first series of developments in which I didn’t have any observation photos to use so I had to synthesize the whole image. This resulted in a crazy and interesting looking image which has no elements from the real world and gives me the freedom to do anything. I really enjoy the vivid and unreal colours created in Photoshop. I have created different variations with colour filters as they also look good, bit less intense so I elected to keep both. This image has a very clear centre and therefore focal point. There is no lighting to comment on since it is digitally synthesised, I made the frame go on deeper and deeper into the image making the image look like it is going of forever which makes the image look as if it has no focal point although it doesn’t feel as if anything is missing from the image.
In this series of images I used some of my photography as the geometry in the development which is derivative of my artist work who usually uses synthesised shapes as to create patterns. This image is vector based meaning that there are a lot of leading lines pointing towards to the tower in the centre. The image has very dark and yet rich colours which makes the image look dark and mysterious. The background is made to emulate space and it makes it seem as if the stairs lead to nowhere. It also reminds me of a sort of stairway to heaven, but with nothing in the end as a representation of the atheistic belief of no life after death. The different variations express how different people’s views are with the same outcome in the end.
This image is the core idea of the handkerchief project and it is really well executed. I created the shapes in the background with the step-and-repeat tool on Photoshop which made the time taken to create the image tolerable. I enjoy the colours used in the image as they are complementary of each other and with certain elements having the perfect amount of contrast. The focal point I also clipped from the original image with the refine edge tool as white borders would ruin the image but luckily I avoided such an occurrence. The line work variations of the image I crated with a filter (and some time spent touching it up) I could focus the image on the form of the image rather than colour which gives the user an interesting view on the image.
This image is one of my more experimental image I created it exclusively on the infamous Microsoft Paint. The software is severely limited as it was designed as a tool to teach people how to use a mouse and is bundled with Windows for the low, low price of free. The end result is not that bad as the simplicity of the tool I used didn't distract me from what I wish to create. The image is a bit rough round the edges due to absolutely no snapping tools in paint but It looks good. It was a real struggle creating this as it all occurs on one-layer meaning if I make a mistake I won’t be able to touch it up in post.
This my development series for the test cards, it was not to hard to make the grid as there were many assets on the internet I could use to help me make it. Once i had made the frame, I inserted the picture into the frame i had made. These test cards are an old method / technique and implementing modern aspects to it makes it more interesting and thought-inducing. I enjoy the old and linear aspect to these designs as it shows how picture can look nice without needed to be convoluted with fancy intricacies
