Creative self portrait

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!
