Hi everyone!

As part of my photography course, I have to track my development on a blog. The posts from September 2011 until January 2012 are part of a module called Project Management, for which I was required to work in a group of eight students to create an exhibition. The blog followed every step we took in order to create a successful gallery. The blog posts starting from September 2012 follow my final year on the course. I'll be documenting my research and analysis of my final year projects, as well as include notes of my Professional Practice unit - which prepares us for a range of post graduate options. Finally it also looks at a project called New Creatives, where I'll be working alongside an artists to help college students get more involved with art.

I watched a video on youtube on how to make photo look better and got some useful tips from that. I brightened up the woodland in the back and made the heath a nicer colour of purple.

I did similar things to this image. I felt it was still too green, so reduced that. I made the heath within this area a nicer shade of purple and finally I edited the sky so that it doesn’t have such a strange colour. 

The woodland looked a bit odd to me as well. The trees were too green, but when trying to edit it how I usually do it reduced the green colour of the grass. In the second photo you can see that I made the tree trunk brown but kept the leaves and grass a good colour of green.
Finally, I put the new images in a circular panorama, and I think it looks a lot nicer. I left the clearing photo alone because I liked that the way it was. The woodland photo looks much better and the purple in the overgrown and heathland stage are a lot more defined, like how it was in real life. I’m very happy with this new outcome and this is probably the image I’ll use as my final. I also made sure that the circle matched up better from the clearing stage and the heathland stage.
