  • Monday, November 13

    •Copy down to turn in:

    Today, we are going to be working with Photoshop on our first project. For this project, you will take one of the green screen pictures you took earlier in the year and place yourself in an environment or place where you would not naturally be found. This can be a real place (Hollywood, maybe) or a far off place, (the moon, perhaps,) or a completely original or non-existent plane of reality. You must make yourself look as if you belong in the picture. This means you may have to adjust lighting, contrast, color, tone etc. or you may have to apply some sort of filter that helps with the illusion. Your final version will be due on Tuesday, November 14th (I added a day because of Friday.) When you are finished, you are to continue to work in Photoshop, familiarizing yourself with all of the bells and whistles. That means open a random picture and play with all the buttons and see what they do. NO COOL MATH GAMES OR ANY OTHER GAMES. THIS IS WORK TIME.
