For my before image, I captured a some berries in a bush. At first glance, the mood of this photograph is very dull and dreary. All from the color and lighting of the photo. There are also various colors being used, but I felt that it should give the image a bit of pop to it.
For my after image, there have been many edits that helped changed the mood of my photograph. In Lightroom, I wanted to give my subject, the berries, a bit more color to it. I wanted to increase the hues on my reds in the image so that the series appeared more lively and present. I decreased my exposure slightly, increased the contrast and reduced some of the highlights. I also reduced some of the whites in the image. clarity was also fixed in which I increased it slightly. I also wanted the trees in the background to be more greener, so I also messed around with the green hues within my image. Sharpening, Vibrance and Saturation were also increased slightly.
I chose these two photographs as my best pair because I actually had the chance to do both worms eye and birds eye views of the same location. I was able to at first take picture A , of the building, from the ground. I then found some steps which took me up to where the lady in red is, which gave me a more birds eye view of where I was standing while taking picture B. I do believe if I could’ve improved anything, it would be my worms eye view. I would have gone closer to the building and take a photograph of it looking up to it rather than this far from the building. Just like how in picture A it looks like the photo was taken looking down.
