Assignment 101 – Kim Hill

I chose this photo because I liked the composition and wanted to see if I could correct the foggy, dull appearance using the first few tools we learned in Photoshop. I decided to use levels, vibrance, and dodge and burn. Levels enhanced the light and dark areas, bringing out the textures of the bark and giving the entire photo more dimension. I decided to use vibrance over pop because pop was too orange on the model’s skin and even though vibrance provided more color, it was a little more natural looking. Finally, I used dodge and burn. I burned the upper left corner where the photo was washed out and then dodged the model’s face alone. I felt lightening the model’s face helped your eye to go straight there. Overall I was happy with the results and eager to learn more.

A few years ago, I made a major career change and started taking horticulture and landscape design courses. I am primarily using Landscape Architect Pro for my design program. I am eager to learn the programs you are going to be showing us. I’m certain it will greatly improve my ability to present design concepts to my clients.

  1. Good choice of adjustments! The model stands out and the background has a nice vibrancy to it. Best thing is that the photo doesn’t look touched up
