Continuity. Rhythm. Depth
Movement. Depth. Continuity.
Continuity. Movement. Depth.
Contrast. Difference. Dominance.
Classwork: Great looking photos! Really great. Renderings are shaping up nicely, too>.
I have two suggestions to make them ever better.
Fix verticals by using 2-Point Perspective this is a detail, but goes a long way to avoid vertical lines converging, for a real “pro” look
Use levels in Photoshop to increase contrast, especially by dragging the 3 handles in the “Input” interface.
Applying both suggestions, you’d get this:
By the way, one neat advice I forgot to tell in class:
When making black/white images usually to get really impactful range of greys, it is suggested that your image should have either pure white, or pure black. Which basically means you should play with levels and adjust white or black point.
If your image is relatively bright, then you should take the brightest point of the image and make it a white point (in Levels interface). If your image is relatively dark, then you should take the darkest point and make it black. See tutorial I posted on 1A if you’re not sure how to use Levels, or check info online.
You can also try Auto-Levels (a button in Levels interface) which will automatically increase contrast to its maximum without burning out things.
Homework: very nice images. I wish the second one (with square frames) had the background of different color (white, for example), otherwise very nice.
Hi Neko! Thanks for the feedback
