In my photography class last night, we got to finish working on our vintage & hand-colored pictures. I really had fun. I changed the one of Andrew just a little bit - I made his eyes a little more of a denim blue instead of the aqua blue and fixed some issues with his shirt - originally, I had messed around with the black & white adjustments and it made his shirt look a little weird. Here's the final shot of Andrew:
Here's the one of the old motel - dirtied up a little bit and with the sign colored. I had initially had the letters in pink and the awning in aqua. My professor wanted to switch it up, just to see. And he liked it this way. And I want a good grade. So it stayed this way.
And the truck. I had lots of fun with the truck and couldn't decide how I liked it best. So here's m'favorites:
And finally, The Apron Picture. I added some texture to this one, just to try it out. I like how it looks like the photo's been crumpled in somebody's pocket for ages. However, I really liked it without the texture too. But for my assignment, I turned in this one, simply because I had one already that was simple (Andrew) and one already with a vignette (the truck - that's the darkening around the edges) and keeping the scratchy copy gave me some variety in what I turned in.
I'm indecisive. So what.
I would like to state that there was an incident yesterday involving the front bumper of my car. My poor car. And I would not like to further discuss it (note to family and friends: seriously. I don't want to talk about it). If I am ever able to find the humor in it, I will tell the story. If not, let's just consider The Mysterious Bumper Incident After the Rear-End Collision Incident After the Transmission Incident part of my, uh, mystique.
