Today- We will start off the day by looking through and discussing your past projects- window light portrait and the constructed portrait.
After completing this, we will then move onto the Painting Project. You need to find a large file size(at least 1000 pixels on the long side) image of a well known painting that contains multiple people. You will select one of the people in the painting that you will replace with yourself. If you want to help your grade out, replace others in the painting with images of your friends. We will be using various Photoshop filters and techniques to help make it look authentic.
I will give a demonstration on finding paintings that are large enough in file size to make sure that you meet this requirement of the assignment.
For today’s post- Facebook. There is no doubt that Facebook has been a real game changer for just about everything in the owrld- the way we communicate, share thoughts, and share photos. Facebook just announced that you can now UPLOAD MUCH LARGER PHOTOS and then people will be able to download these large photos. What do you think of this? Is the ability to share larger file sized photos good or bad? Why? Will you want to upload large file sizes to facebook? Are you concerned that people will be able to download these much larger file sizes and possibly make large prints, advertisements, etc. with these files? Why or why not?
