Assignment 101 – Reina Fischer

Original photo

This is a photo that I took as part of exercise 103.  I added a levels layer to bring out the depth in the dark leaves.  I also added a "S" curves layer to brighten the suns rays.   I like the feel of bring the image to life.

Hello, my name is Reina Fischer, and I’m a returning student. I attended DVC after graduating WAY back in 1992-1994, unfortunately I was a young adult with no drive and no direction of a career/major at the age of 16. So I decided to get a full time job working for a telecommunications company, started a family, got married, and realized I wanted a career that afforded me the opportunity to be a mother first, so I decided to attend beauty school and become a cosmetologist; 10 years later, as my oldest daughter is now also attending DVC, I have decided to embark on a new career/hobby. I haven’t really decided what my major is going to be. I started taking a few drafting classes i.e. AutoCAD 3D and Revit and thought this class would be interesting as well as a course that would fulfill a GE requirement. In my spare time I like to be creative, whether I’m crafting or learning how to use a new software.

  1. I love how the subtle changes you made made the picture that much better. The color balance helps the red pop against the green.

  2. Hi, really great job! I think that you did a great job creating more contrast. The edited image also feels deeper and more saturated. Keep up the good work!

  3. Such a great job! The change is subtle but absolutely transforms the leaves and makes them look alive. The added depth of color really sells it.
