Create a poster using Adobe Photoshop to edit an original photo and incorporate design elements while sticking to a colour scheme.
It seems like I need to take 100 photos to find 1 good picture in the bunch. I took lots of photos to get one that could fit with the message I wanted to convey. I used Adobe Photoshop to edit the image using the levels, vibrance and saturation, selective colour, and sharpening tools. I tried to create more depth in the image, especially in the plants. I reduced the whiteness of the water and kept it more blue throughout. I brought out the rich gold sunlight that was throughout because I took the picture as the sun was going down. I chose the design elements of the white stripe because of the ducks neck. It not only caused repetition in the design but it ended up giving the impression that you are looking out of a window at the scene.
More fulfilling and lasting value is found in confidence in ones self than in beauty.
The boys, girls, men, and women who think they are ugly and that good looks is where value is found.
Top Thing Learned: Taking the time to determine who your audience is does much more than I realized to help you compose photographs, design elements, and even selecting a colour scheme.
