Common Every Day Object Tutorial

ny redskins 2

The objective of the assignment “Common Every Day Object” was to take a normal, everyday object and manipulate the colors.  My roommate Tim is a New York Giants fan so I decided to have a little fun at his expense.  The first thing I did was to take a picture of his beloved Giants poster in our room.  Next I imported it to the Color Splash Smart app on my computer.  Color Splash allows you to take all of the color out of an image, then recolor it back.  I used it to first, take all of the color out of the picture, then recolor everything except for the helmet itself.  I then saved the image and imported it to the app Colorstrokes.  Colorstrokes is similar to Color Splash except that it allows you to change the colors of the picture, kind of like paint.  I used color strokes to recolor the normally blue and white helmet to a more suitable red and yellow.  It was a pretty simple task but I had a lot of fun at his expense.

Splash of Color

This was visual assignment 340, Splash the Color.  I used the mac app Color Splash Smart to complete it.  My friends and I were in Cincinnati at a Reds game when this (should be) award winning piece of photography was taken.  This picture does not really have any sentimental value to me other than the fact that I just love it.  This was not too difficult to edit, the only trouble was trying to get the wisps of cotton candy on the bottom left.  I think it turned out pretty well though
