In this project, I took given photos and mixed them together, making a completely new photo-shopped piece of art.
This project taught me many things about using Photoshop. I enjoyed the freeness of the project, and how I could experiemnt with what I wanted.I learned a lot about scaling objects to the rest of the object. If I made an ant larger than a mountain it was on, something wouldn't realy look right. This project also taught me about proportion. I learned how important the size ratio between objects was, such as an object far away and an object close up. Additionally, I learned what foreground, middleground and background were. Foreground would be things close up, with background would be far away. Objects closer to the viewer are much larger than far away. I learned many cool tools, primarily object selection. My favorite toy to play with was probably the lasso tool. This allowed me to easily and neatly select an object from one picture and insert it to another picture. This allowed me to put a random ice ball in a forest. Also, I enjoyed the magic eraser, which allowed me to completely remove a picture's sky. Then, I was able to add a sunset behind the mountains. Lastly, I learned the difference between a Photoshop document and a JPEG. Photoshop documents can be freely edited in the program, with the preexisting layers and such. JPEG's are what can be uploaded onto sites. Clearly, my increased aptitude from this project is clear.
