#treelyfe - The picture I used for my double exposure was a picture I took of myself when it was starting to get warm out. I felt very happy and warm and when I went to edit it, this is something I was thinking about. However, this is not the reason I used the tree as the represntation of the inside of my soul. In actuality, I used it because I thought using something almost transparent would look really cool as a double exposure. Also, the tree and I were both in a similar position: straight up.
Flood lines - The original picture I took was in Busch’s grocery store in Plymouth. The reason I was there was to take pictures of shots I needed for a client project in the CMPP magnet at my school. When I put this picture into Photoshop, I noticed that I could use something on the floor of the aisle to edit the picture and make it special. I needed another texture mashup and noticed I hadn’t done anything with the water, and came up with the idea of putting the water in the aisle to make it look like the floor was water. I had some trouble editing the water, but in the end, I really liked the way it turned out. I also wish I had put something on top of the water to make it look like something was in the water, like someone swimming while getting their groceries.
Rock Soul - I titled this picture Rock Soul because this was sort of the way I was feeling when I took this picture. I was on my way home from a trip I took to visit a college/academy I’ll be going to next year called Interlochen. I was tired and bored, so naturally, I didn’t really feel too inspired. I really liked the way this picture turned out because I originally thought the rock was too much for the viewer to see my face, but after playing around with the opacity, and the filters associated with my body/face, I ended up really liking it. I definitely need more practice doing Double Exposures because I don’t want to spend as much time trying to edit the original picture.
