This week we delved into the world of photography.
I was particularly looking forward to it because of the photography/design work that I’ve done over the past few years.
We looked into the main balances that must be struck to take an accomplished photo using a DSLR. The intertwining triangle of; Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO make up this trio.
We had a look at various photo editing softwares, including the cloud based Pixlr, but I used some headshots I took for a friend a few weeks ago to display the range of uses the photo editing software Photoshop provides. In the photo below I manipulated the image with another photo I took of a village in Italy. The technique is known as double exposure, and can provide some cool results.
The process is a little complicated, it involves making changes to the transparency, brightness and contrast.
