Assignment: Diptych
Using images made this semester and not submitted for other editing projects, explore Geometry, Selective edits, (Brush, Radial, Linear) and Healing on your images.

•You should use all the tools in LRM needed to make your images standout.
Crop, Healing, Profiles, Light, Color, Effects, Detail, Optics, Presets, and more.

When using LRM, remember to use versions. You can make multiple versions and choose one to submit as your final edit. I save versions as I work a file, so that I can step back if I make an edit I don’t like or I want to try it another way. Then I can evaluate the 2 edits and choose the one that works for my vision.

•No screen shots of images are to be used for the collage.  
LRM Export from Adobe Cloud to the Camera Roll. https://www.pixelnrg.com/lrm4exportcamerarollguide.pdf
 

•Using PicCollage make 5 diptychs. A diptych is 2 images side by side or up and down.

-Align the images side by side or up and down so they have the same midpoint.
-Choose a page orientation for your diptych that best works with your images - horizontal page for vertical images - vertical page for horizontal images. How will you handle the square image - Remember this is an editing exercise - Use the page to make the images as large as possible.
-Your left side or top image is your unedited image - Title unedited.
-Your right side or bottom image is the edited image. - Title edited.
-Use white, black or gray for your background.
-Do not tilt the images in the app.
-Be careful not to let the app crop your images in the image box. You can size the image within the box with a pinch. This takes practice and time to align the images so they look good.
-Do not have your text over your images. Text size, font and color can be changed in the app. Keep it simple. It is about the images.
-Use a readable font for your project. Keep things simple - White gray or black for your text color.

-Add your name, class, section and project to the image.

•Submit the 5 diptych.jpg files through Canvas. No Screen shots!
•In Canvas Comments add what edits you did to the images and why you think it worked for each image. Tell me what camera and lens you used as well. Be specific to each image.

GrittyBWGrittyBW

This was Shot with the Sony A7III - 24-105mm.
I wanted to darken the sides and push the viewers eye to the walking figure.
-I went with a BW that had strong blacks and kept the highlight detail.
-Added linear gradients to darken the blacks on the right diagonal of the stairs and at the bottom left and top left street - 3 Linear Gradients.
-Then I used a radial gradient on the person a one that hit him and then all the way out to the drain cover - pretty bit.
-Next the brush to pull back more white detail on the wall behind the person. Its still bright but with detail. I pumped up the texture and clarity.
-Lastly with a small brush I pulled back the darkness at the feet and the covers on the cement. And pulled back some darkness on the light to the right on the stairs. This one took some work. I am drawn to the gritty feel here.
