Week 3: Working with Selections.
This first project is a themed collage made from seven different pictures all representing different spices. I wanted the colors and textures to evoke an exotic foreign spice market, like those run by street vendors in Thailand, but to also feel accessible and homey, like my kitchen table, because spices make me feel like a world traveler and a domestic goddess all at once. Although I have a considerable collection of spices, I chose to source my images from stock photography for want of time this week for photo sessions.
This second assignment showcases three photographs in a fun way using selections and some basic layer effects. The pictures are all those I have taken personally: a dahlia in my house, and my son and daughter in the Halloween costumes I made them last autumn.
