These images were created for my Media Graphics class at Metro State.
The easiest part of this assignment was recoloring the second, third, and fourth squares. I had to convert my main image to black and white in a seperate file, then copied the layer to my main file. This allowed me to have just the photo in black and white, and not the entire image. Once the image was in black and white, I applied a grain filter, and adjusted the brightness and contrast until it was mostly black and white, and very little gray. I used the layer mask to cut out the background, and the magic wand to select the skin. I chose colors suggested by www.colorschemedesigner.com. The colors I used are:
I didn't want to use the basic 4 colors. After I came up with the image above, I tried inverting the color of the layers and came up with the second image. It's more pastel than contrasty, but wanted to see how it would come out. I only inverted the colors of the photo on the light backgrounds to make the image pop.
