Blurb from Maryam Moosa Nouraldini
This image is a process of photo manipulation. It represents READING. It is a combination of two images, the background and the boy’s image. To make it more realistic: a ‘bloat’ tool was used on the boy’s image to looks that he is sitting behind the magnifying glass with gaussian blur applied with filters. In addition to that, the brightness and contrast was reduced in his photo and shadow was added. The magnifying glass has some reflection, so it was important for me to add those reflection to the boy’s face and body. the image is an exersice of croping image, color scheme, aplying different kinds of filters, shadow and masking.
The mask feature was used to put the boy behind the magnifying glass.
