As the summer winds on, the assignments in my creative imaging class continue to push me in terms of technical skill and creative design. My latest assignment was a creative selfportrait and it was a challenge from concept to the final image.
I started out playing with textures and another self portrait from months ago. I then started playing with using water to add more complexity. I ended up shooting my upper torso in a bath tub with a precariously placed tripod. From there I found some images of birds that I had gathered while scouting a location on the south shore for another assignment. In conceptualizing this image I had a thousand ideas swirling around in my head. It was from this chaos of ideas that I decided to use the birds as symbols for my thoughts. From there I worked on showing the final idea springing forth and flying off.
My finished image was a lot different from where I started and I love the way it turned out. One of the things that I love about Photoshop is that with the right skills and knowledge you can create anything that you can envision. I am very pleased with where this project took me and where it ultimately ended up. Please like, comment, & share this if you enjoyed my image. Thanks!
