Demonstration of photography and photo editing skills using Photoshop. Create a poster using a photo and incorporate colors from the picture within the poster.
Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles):
I knew I wanted to use a picture from nature for this project and I spent an entire day hiking through the woods with my kids taking hundreds of photos with my Nikon D3200 and captured this beautiful photo. I edited the photo in photoshop to enhance the lighting and color vibrance and then created this poster incorporating it. I incorporated the color scheme and color swatches into the poster. I loved the focus on nature and really wanted to incorporate it into my poster so I surrounded the photo with swirling vines and leaves. I even used little curling vines for the swatches. Finally, I wanted to make it feel like the word “Bloom” was actually blooming so I added a swirling vines growing from the tail of the letter ‘m.’ I felt like this helped the cohesion of the entire poster.
