I do not know why Weebly pixelized this image, but I guess it gives it a creepy effect. I took these with the help of my friend Jake as a model. I had my idea from the start and I knew exactly what I wanted to capture and how I wanted to edit from the beginning, including adding the fog as an after effect. I think my final result nailed the topic for the idea I had, and I had fun in the process. Overall, this was a fun WPA to do.
This was a pretty enjoyable photo assignment considering I was able to shoot within my comfort zone, landscapes. I had no challenges actually taking these images, as well as the photoshopping part. I did not expect to get a good image as I wanted to go to La Jolla to do this, but I lucked out at a local beach with some cool pools created by a wall of seaweed. Overall, this was a good WPA despite putting it off until Sunday night.
Portraits are not my favorite, but I did have fun with this because it was challenging. I was excited about this project because this was a different type of portrait. It was one of me that I took and I had to use photoshop. Taking this was very hard because of the aperture I wanted to use (f/1.4). It took around 40ish tries to get the focus properly on my camera lens. In photoshop I layer masked several layers of myself to create the pixel explosion effect. I then overlaid some of my images on top of those larger "pixels" and on the lens of my camera to make it seem like I'm photographing a wave. Overall, I enjoyed the challenge of this project.
