Intermediate Photoshop Projects


These assignments go beyond tonal and contrast changes.  These assignments cover everything from advanced touch up work to complex montage work.  The Photoshop mask will be used in many of these assignments.

For the first four tasks below (Digital Hand Painting, Exposure Balancing, Overlay to Improve Contrast, and Healing Tools), it is suggested that you have images ready to use.  However, if you do not, you may borrow one of the images here. YOU MUST USE YOUR OWN IMAGES FOR WHAT YOU TURN IN.

Mr. Lindroth’s Intermediate Photoshop Demo Images

For the Photomontage, you must use your own image for the central subject but you are allowed to use my cloud images for what you turn in.  Here is the album here:

Mr. Lindroth’s Clouds You May Use for Photomontage

Types of images you need to have for these lessons:

 

Digital Handing Painting:

Images that woudl look good with some parts in color and other parts in black and white

   

Exposure Balancing:

Images that have some more extreme areas of dark and light

Overlay to Improve Contrast:

Images that have lower contrast

Healing Tools:

Images that have blemishes, spots or other artifacts that when removed would improve the quality of the image.  Scanned darkroom images would be good for this but not required.  The images may be shot on a digital camera.

Photomontage:

One image of clouds or some other topic that would look good with another images worked into it (tree bark, otehr texure images, anything that will not create too much busyness or compet with your central subject).
