Photoshopping

IMPORTANT: You will be handing in layered PSD files! Your grade will be based on (1) how realistic the picture looks, and (2) how neatly and carefully you did the cut-outs (that’s why you’re handing in the layered file).

Part 1: IMAGINARY LANDSCAPE

  • Combine at least three different pictures of landscapes — mountains, forests, waterfalls, buildings, cityscapes, meadows, beaches, etc.
  • One of those three pictures has to be from the San Francisco Bay Area
  • Do not use pictures of objects (no planes, no cars, no boats, etc.)
  • Make sure the lighting matches between pictures (you can’t combine a night picture with a day picture, avoid weird lighting)
  • Make sure the angles of the pictures work together (if one picture is looking down from above, you can’t combine it with a picture that’s looking up from below)
  • PSD 600px wide by 400px ht (you will hand in a layered PSD file so Mr. Machtay can check how neatly you cut  out images)

Part 2: TWINS PROJECT

  • Combine a picture of yourself with another picture of yourself
  • If the two pictures were not taken in the same place, make sure the lighting matches (direction of shadows?)
  • Make sure the angles of the pictures make sense (looking down? looking up?)
  • Make sure the larger image is in front!!!
  • PSD 400px wide by 400px ht (you will hand in a layered PSD file so Mr. Machtay can check how neatly you cut out images)
