PHOTO EDITING WORK
I have been working in Adobe PhotoShop for over a decade. I began with color correction, which I used greatly when editing surf photography. As I learned the capabilities of this program, I became able to create things that do not exist. This comes up in advertising more than you would realize. I recently was given a photo of an electrical unit which was not turned on during photography, therefore I made it look like the screen was lit up, and that there were readings showing. Shown in my portfolio here are some of the more complex works, such as making the “wine cellar room” look like there are barrels and a waterfall where they do not exist. While most of my photographer friends us this source to delete wrinkles and give brides a healthy glow, I use it to CREATE. The entire inside of the brochures for Sea Eye are “collages” made of numerous different photographs. So bling it on! I love to create.
PHOTO EDITING WORK
MARINA SECTION OF SEA EYE COLLAGE
The start and end point of this tour is in front of a restaurant that cold not be seen well in the original photos, so I made that sign large and visible.The mall is off to the right, so I made a representation of that, as it also is part of the tour. The sea lion was added by me as well.
LAND SECTION OF SEA EYE TOURS COLLAGE
The tour on this yacht, brings you around an entire bay. My reasoning behind this collage is so that the customer can know that they will not only see the main focus of the tour, but also some of the sights on the beach that they would be missing if not for this full circle tour.
All elements were separate and I used the genus of Photoshop to put them all together. The scuba diver, tutee and whale underwater are also put there by me, by creating monochromatic images of each and placing them in this file with some transparency.
BEACH SECTION OF SEA EYE TOURS COLLAGE
For the beach part of the tour, I had several elements to put together, and to get the signs on the beach bars to be seen well, again I had to make not only the signs larger than in reality, but I made the roofs larger as well.
All elements above the crowded beach scene where individual photos that I shilouetted and put onto the beach.
Rock Stone Outdoor Banners
The objective of these banners were to attract passers by, and let them know that there is a rock tavern upstairs. Placed at the entrance, this is a 2 sided sign. Images of women were individual photos. The beer glass is a separate photo. The logos on the beer glass were placed there by me and then edited to look like they are really on the glass. Crown shot and other images were individually added to create this attention getting large banner.
NuWater USA Purification Unit
This very nice product shot was taken while the unit was turned off. In order for this photo to be more attractive for usage on the cover and interior of a users manual, I created a "green screen" and typed readings and made them look like this was a lit up digital display. These are the kind of details that I put my attention on. Many clients would not even notice this detail, so be assured that I am on the lookout to make your advertising the best possible.
