Photo Editing/Ideas

I tried the idea of cutting a tennis ball in half and cutting an apple in half then putting them together in photoshop. The idea sounded like it would be good and look good but it was quite tricky to do and I wasn’t too sure on the overall outcome.



Photo Studio

This week I bought £250 worth of tennis shoes after struggling to get any products from companies. I then went into the studio at University and used Lucy as a leg model for my work. I took loads of photographs of the shoes with Lucy wearing them, some without and some photographs of dropping things in water. I got home and looked through the photographs and edited some but decided that I wasn’t completely happy with all the photographs I had so got Lucy to come and be a leg model again. I went back to the Studio and took photographs closer up with her wearing both shoes instead of just one. The outcome of the photographs was much better and will be using these photographs in my feature. I will now edit the photographs using Photoshop to make them look much better and magazine ready.

I haven’t been able to get any products yet to photograph which has resulted in slippage in my Gantt Chart. I have had to push the studio back a few weeks until I have products able to photograph. I will have to wait until I can afford to buy the shoes myself I think as it is getting later and later and I might run out of time to get anything. I have removed several things from my Gantt chart where I won’t be able to complete them until I have these products.
