Week 10-Halloween photos

I decided to take this picture and edit it. I didn't want to make it look really creepy or evil because I don't like Halloween or the mind set it encourages. However, I did like the way that this picture turned out. My sister helped me to come up with ideas! 

When I edited this picture, I made it look a bit smokey using the smudge tool. I also used a texture that I place over the top of the original picture.

Week 9-Working with Brushes

I decided to add a fun affect to this picture by using music note brushes!
On this picture, I just opened a blank document and decided to make a name plate by using baroque style brushes, as well as text.
I used a cloud brush tool to add some more dimension to the clouds in this picture. I tried to make it look a little bit stormy!

That was my week 9 work!

Week 8 work-Editing photos using tutorials

On this photo, I used a tutorial from Atomic Learning to remove many of the wrinkles of the man in the center of the picture.

This was a picture that I took at one of our school's football games. I was still trying to get used to all of the settings on the camera, so this picture was too dark. I used a tutorial from Atomic Learning to find out one way to lighten this picture.

I am editing my friend's senior pictures for her, so I took this picture and followed the steps of a 9tuts tutorial to enhance the photo and add more contrast. I was really happy with the way that it turned out!

In this picture of my two best friends (one being my sister!), I chose to follow an Atomic Leaning tutorial to find out how to enhance the eyes in the picture. The eyes were a bit dark in the first photo, so I chose to make them brighter by using different layers.

Week 7 Part 2 - Text on working paths

I found this picture of the Catalina Mountains in Tucson, AZ. I decided to add text to the picture, trying to at least roughly follow the line of the mountain.

I also found this picture of Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, Itlay. I decided to add text to this picture, too.   
This beautiful picture of the Eiffel Tower is from Google. I chose one of the colors from the picture to use as the font color. I also used the outline of the Eiffel Tower as a work path to type the text along.

Week 7 Part 1- Selective Coloring

I used the quick selection tool to make everything black and white in the picture except for the flower.
I also used the quick selection tool to bring the eagle into focus by turning the rest of the picture black and white.

Week 6-editing Lamborghini and other photos

I changed the color of this Lamborghini using many different Photoshop tools.

I edited the shadows and highlights in this picture.
I took this shadow portrait of my sister against a lace background. On Photoshop, I adjusted the curves of the picture.
With this picture, I edited the color balance to make it a little bit easier to see the yellow sunlight in the sky. 
That was my week 6 work!
