Today, for a four star assignment, I took on
Visual Assignment 2172. “Before and after the apocalypse”, the task is to juxtapose two pictures and to not rely heavily on Photoshop to get it done. The majority of the differences in the photo were achieved with the lighting differences I used to capture the original photos. Besides making the apocalypse photo a little darker, (and slight color manipulation) the artificial light in my second picture paired with the angle really took care of most of it.
It was fun for me to try to make myself look like I was in the apocalypse. I liked this assignment overall, but it was pretty time consuming. Because of this, I think it makes sense that the star count is where it is.
Let me know what you think!
