For my last assignment, I chose a two star photo editing assignment that said we needed to switch up the mood of a picture. For this assignment I used a free photo editing software to adjust certain aspect of the first image to change the mood. I played with contrast, saturation, warmth, shadows, and more. I really struggled with the editing software as I have never really used one before this week. All of the editing I have done prior could be done with an app on my phone so it was never necessary. This was definitely the hardest assignment for me this week, however, I am very happy with my end result.
This is the view I had in my old apartment from my screened in porch. The view was amazing, but the screen on the porch would make it difficult for the colors to come out the way I wanted them to and they often weren’t as bright. So my goal was to bring the picture to the glory of the actual scenery. The sunsets were vibrant with bright colors and always made me happy, while my pictures usually come out dull. I feel that my edited picture portrayed that happier mood and made the picture itself a truer match the sunsets I saw from that porch.
