Phase 2: Define Completed collages

For the Narrow High KeyĀ collage, I used a different material (a print out from the library) to create my gradient. I realize later on that the different material really stands out on the Broad ranged collage thus I took advantage of the fact that because the laser print out looks so much more HD if I placed it on top of a much more faded portrait (Narrow High Key) of myself it would be a good focal point.

Value-Added Portraits: Phase 1

 

 

Broad

High-key

Low-key

In these 3 photos, the lowkey value is the darkest, it has a darker background and primarily focuses my hands.Ā  It was taken in the classroom next to the window shade. The highkey has a lighter background and also focuses on my hand. The broad photo was taken in the class computer desks on a keyboard as the background. Each of these creates the gist of my hand being in different surrounding but in the same place at once.

 

Sound Visualization: Phase 4

My thoughts about this particular project is that I found it really interesting in the beginning with the drawing out what we heard in the music. It got really complicated once animating came into it, but now I learned something new with animating in Photoshop. I know some things I could’ve worked on is my time management with this project. I know I was really lost on what to do, so next time for a project I would really work on being way better on time management. Overall, I actually Ā learned a lot about animating, and photoshop. The ending result of my animation I was actually pretty satisfied with because I liked how differently I tried to animate it from everybody else’s animation.

Project 3 draft

The image I have chosen is a picture of a tree branch stuck in a fence. The image raises various questions. These are questions such as how did the fence get intertwined with the branch. There is also the thought if it was done intentionally. If it was intentionally done then the thought that follows is why. I chose this image because I felt that it was very out of the ordinary. It almost seemed as though a tree was cut and the remains of it are stuck in the fence. However, it may be likely that the branch was placed there into the fence. This is likely because that is an area where people do a lot of things for art purposes. For example in that same area there is a wall spray painted with an interesting looking design. This leads me to believe that the branch may have been placed there intentionally.

Sound Visualization: Phase 1

The song I used for staccato sketches isĀ calledĀ Black Sheep by MetricĀ and for the legato sketches I did the songĀ Teleport 2 MeĀ by Kid Cudi.

The staccato song is a rock song so at the beginning of the song you hear a lot of the electric guitar repeating a certain rhythm and its very fast. The legato song has a lot of humming and a slow rhythm, however it is a mixture of slow and fast rhythm but the overall feel of the song is legato.
