For the project, I really tried to add variety to my photos. I got most of my shots on campus and at Porter Park. I enlisted the help of my roommate Brooke for the first shot. I hardly edited the photos, mostly just using the adjustment tools. I found the shallow depth of field photos to be easier to take. I don’t know if that’s just because I like the way they look better. But I enjoyed taking shallow depth of field rather than deep depth of field.
Edits: I cleared up blemishes and used the dodging/burning brush on the eye to make it pop. I also used the levels and curves adjustments, and I used the unsharp mask filter.
Edits: I sharpened this image using the unsharp mask filter, and added some color the tree trunk with the hue/saturation tool. I also adjusted the levels, curves, and selective color tools.
Edits: I used the selective color tool to make the blue and red of the bike pop. I also sharpened the image using the unsharp mask filter.
