Under the Hood
Challenge 3 – Finding Art in the Commonplace. For this piece our main challenge was to work with ONE photo of something commonplace from around the home. To that we had to add two textures, 1 grunge edge effect and an image of text. To this we had to had a vignette.
Looking around our home for something, I decided on the electric fan in our lounge. I duplicated the photo and moved each copy to opposite corners. I chose and added the required two textures from the choices given and decided to use blend modes that would completely change the effect and colours. I added the text, placing these in the circle which was the centre of each fan and then added the grunge edge around each text. I added the vignette and decided to give it a hard edge (you more often than not use a soft, feathered edging). Finally I added a couple of curves adjustments to make the image darker and more dramatic.
