David Hockey was born July 9, 1937. One of his quotes are "The moment you cheat for the sake of beauty, you know you're an artist." He is an English painter, draughtsman, print maker, stage designer and photographer. He sees synesthetic colors in response to musical stimuli. He painted different portraits at different periods in his career.
I created his artwork with rules of third. I took different shots of the same subjects with different angles. I would also change the shots to different exposures. I used photoshop to transform the different images to make the image as one puzzle.
I chose the magazine Glamour because it boosts self esteem to women. What I did to emulate the magazine cover style is get their logo for the title and I put texts that would help a women feel confident about themselves with products, tips and secret beauty tips. I used the font colors red, nudeish pink, black and a violet pink/purple so the magazine can look a little girly. The set up was a gay background with the light of a calumet nova 32 and a reflector. To get the shot the camera was vertical. A strobe light is to produce a flash of light. You connect it to the camera so when you take a shot the light flashes and makes the picture bright and identifies the face. A modeling light helps is a continues light. A soft box helps create light on the subject. A reflector creates light on a certain direction. You use it to define the body and face more.
The title of this image is HDR (high dynamic range) Framing. This image was taken at the Duck Pond near Rancho Buena Vista High School. The compositional rule for this photograph is framing. The camera used was a Nixon D5300 with 18-140 mm lens.
I used multiple shots of the same picture and angle. I used a tripod to hold the camera still. I took five of the same pictures with different exposures each. After I used photoshop to merge them together. I saturated and removed any ghost on the photograph to complete the process. My photograph was printed on Epson Glossy Photo Paper on the Epson P800 digital printer.
To each his own
I'm all alone
I wonder why
I still close my eyes
I try to think
And then give a quick blink
But I find myself wondering
Why this is happening
What will I do?
If I can't get through
I start to wonder
Then I fonder
I took 5 photographs of Luis and used the quick selection tool to just get his body and I didn't need the background. I duplicated him and made him smaller and edited it in black and white to match the dark sky background that I got from Google Images as well as the eye drawing. I also used the quick selection tool to erase the eyeball and put in my image as the eyeball. I had to transform and scale it to get my image small to be the eyeball. I used my mandala photograph to replace the moon to make it more interesting and creative.
A mandala looks like a symbol with a repeating pattern. I created this mandala using a circular template with guide lines. I got the template and used the magic wand and dragged it to the image I took. I got a certain spot I wanted and I copied that spot pressing command c and copied it with command v to the template. From there I rotated it to match the template. I duplicated the layer I transformed it horizontal and dragged it and rotated it to match the other template below. I merged those to layers and duplicated those layers. Then i flipped them horizontal and put it together with the other piece. I threw away the first layer and merged the two layers i was working on. After I duplicated those layers and i transformed it vertical and put it together and I merged the layers. Before i merge all the layers i check to see if the parts are of so i use the arrow keys if there is empty spots to put them together. My favorite image is the second one because it has a lot of different patterns and it seems like it has more color. I feel like I didn't struggle as much and if i could do this all over again I would make the background more interesting or duplicate the layers to make it smaller and smaller each time.
Tessellations are a repeating pattern with one photograph. I created the tessellations by cropping my image to a certain spot and i used guide lines to help me line all the images up and I also had to transform the image to make the patterns after i merged all the images together and i edited them with color balance. What i liked about this is that they look like interesting wall papers. My favorite image was the second and third one. I didn't really struggle with anything. If i had to do it over again I would capture more pictures of interesting objects to make a more interesting pattern.
