Advanced Stuido Practice 2A – Photoshop touches

The aim of this task was to develop 3-5 previously shot images that explore my proposal concept through post-production.

The aims of this task were successful. I have managed to create 3-5 images that explore further development within my concept by adding colour cast to create a mystical aesthetic and airbrushing the skin to represent high fashion beauty shots. I now feel more confident within using Photoshop however I still need more practice as within each image there are slight alterations that need re-looking at. The level of noise within image 4 is slightly too high therefore i lowered it for image 1,2,3. Airbrushing is achieved within all images however i want to work on this further. I also need more practice with adjusting the colour tones and contrast. However i am happy with the colour cast of the images and believe they make my photos look more mystical.

My favourite of these 4 images are image 3 and 4. I prefer the darker contrast and the effect it has on the image as a whole. I also think the airbrushing makes the image more defined as a high fashion beauty shot as it is a higher contrast to image 1 and 2. The overall post-production work allows the audience to identify the portraits as beauty shots with a mystical edge.

I will continue developing my project i will photograph using green make-up and props and try re-create a similar more prepared series of images of which i will post-process similarly in order to start creating a series of images that explore the element of nature and beauty within a high fashion beauty shot.
