The Digital Imaging class I am taking at LCC this summer is keeping me busy. Primarily the class is about PhotoShop, and while I’ve been using PhotoShop for years, formally learning it has revealed how much I didn’t know. It has also reveal how complex PhotoShop is. I think you could use it professionally for years and still have aspects you haven’t touched yet.
Our second project for the term was the creation of a movie poster. It had to be a fictitious movie and all of the images in the poster had to be taken specifically for this project. We also had to be the stars of our own movie.
I chose a western theme, partially so I could use some of the family heirlooms I had recently acquired, and partially because it seemed uncharacteristic for me. I like my final project, especially the printed version which seems richer than the digital version.
