Creative Image Effects
Creative image effects can be fun to experiment with. I experimented with the composite image below called The World Before You and the GIF of a dog named Poppie. To do creative image effects such as a composite, it requires multiple images and creative thinking. For example I took a picture of a model’s eye and then wanted to put the world inside it. I had to do other creative image effects to create the world. This world is actually a photo of a sky reflection in the roof of a black car. This darkened the sky and gave a good effect of an earth. The stars in the image was an astro-photography shot that I had taken. Creative image effects can be awesome, but take some time and work. The GIF of Poppie down below is called a cinemagraph and is simply a video. I used photoshop and made a second layer above the video of a still frame with the girls hands up in the air. I then masked out, the entire path of Poppie the dog’s jump. This makes it so the video only show through where Poppie is jumping. Here is the video that I used to learn how to create cinemagraph like the one of Poppie.
Also, here is a link to some good photo tutorials that can help with other composite images.
