Using Photoshop to Express Your Feelings
The other night I did not feel too good and couldn't sleep. I hate it when my mind starts to race and I am a little overly tired. In order to combat that I decided to do a selfie project at 1am and not go to bed until I finished it. I remembered looking around at pictures on Google+ and seeing a pic that I really like of a person holding their own head. I decided that I would be doing the same with my own spin.
First things first, I needed a background for my composite. I was feeling a bit dark so I figured I would use a picture that I took at the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach, Florida. It has an eerie, dungeon like feel to it and would be perfect. Here is a look at my background pic:
Next I had to take a selfie with my Nikon D800. I used a stand to focus on in manual and took several shots of myself in various positions holding my head and with my arms in front of me. Using Photoshop I was able to combine the 3 photographs needed into one final picture. What do you think of this photo? I wonder if anyone can decipher exactly what the message is with this cool, yet creepy composite photo.
You see, there is always something that you can do if you really want to. I took a bad night and turned it into a nice little project that has gotten really good reviews. I hope you enjoyed this composite. Here it is!
I am available for one on one Lightroom and Photoshop training if you are local to me. Have a great day!!Jeff
