Yesterday, I received my first Pop Screen. It is such a difference and makes my recordings sound so much better! I can really see the difference in my Samson Meteor Mic.
As some of you know, I’m a huge vocal harmony lover, and for the last several months I’ve been into the Bee Gees song “Too Much Heaven.” Of course, the Bee Gees are all about vocal harmonies ever since they were kids and are most famous for their song “Stayin’ Alive.”
So this morning I decided it was about time I did a quick version of Too Much Heaven:
While working on my final project, which is a trans-media fiction story, my partner and I decided to create fake “security cam” footage of two characters in the story meeting at a bar. Below is the progression of images as I edited them, from the original image to the final product.
Renae and Samson inserted into a bar photo and filtered to look like a security cam still image.
It was really quite simple to achieve the camera footage look. I added grain, removed the color, then layered a transparency of TV scan lines. Finally, for “authenticity,” I added a digital time-stamp with the “digital-7″ font, and created lighter circles around the characters the way security images are portrayed on the news.
That is the 2 versions new monogram.
Using Some old school pen and paper techniques and with the help of Adobe illustrator.
This is a monogram from about a year ago:
A photo of a friend of mine, when she was 18. Transformed into an Adult!
Photoshop: liquify filter, brushes, semi transparent layers.
This is my first good Magazine style photo edit. The picture was taken in Burlington as a joke, but the project I became serious about. I had about 3 drafts, each draft having some defining issue- i settled for this, because I truly like the way it came out.
I used the standard tools for such a project. A lot of quick selection tool to make sure i was working on the correct pieces of the image. Low opacity (transparent) brushes, Healing Brushes, and clone stamps to touch up the skin and photo blemishes. Image adjustments, which are found in the menu. And saving the best for last- the liquify filter tool for remolding the subject.
