Monday was the first official day of instruction within the Adobe Creative Suite. It is very exciting! I wonder if it was just happen stance on the same day I come across an article about airbrushed / manipulated star photos.
The above article shows a side by side comparison of Britteny Spears before and than after the photos were altered. What this shows me is how settle changes can make a major difference in the whole perception of the image.
As I start to explore Adobe CS4 I am excited about the chance to improve some of my own images of family and friends.
What I have also learned is that this is a skill and a art. One that I am excited to throw myself into become proficient at this. As I completed my first assignment blurring the dandelion seeds that a little girl is blowing. You must balance the amount of blurring. Too much and it doesn’t look right to little and it doesn’t work.
Can you see the difference?
The only limit I see in front of me is my own imagination an considering the amount of daydreaming I did in school this shouldn’t be an issues.
