A day in the life of a Lamp Post

Here we are! This is my original image. The only thing that has been done to it is the color has been desaturated. Already You can see the contrast in colors!

For this image I wanted to create something that had every value from black to middle grey to white. So I increased the brightness and contrast to achieve this goal.

     Next we have "HORROR LAMP" I played with the contrast and the dodge/burn tool to achieve this creepy image. All we need next is a little blood and this will be perfect! haha

Here we see our lovely model showing off the latest trend in "sepia tone" I played with the colors to make sure there was a strong difference in the three color tones.

For my last image I wanted to create a lighter photo but not washed out. I really played with the dodge/burn tool to create almost a "snow day for lamp post" look.

Street Lamp

Well here it is! MY FIRST IMAGE...This is the original photo. For my first assignment I will be turning it black and white five different ways. There are a couple of reasons I chose this photo: 1. The values of the photo have all the colors and contrast I wanted to make a really cool black and white image, there are plenty of light, middle, and dark areas which are essential in making an interesting work. 2. I like that the photos subject is cannot tell this photo was taken in Mckenzie, TN in 2015 which is a quality that makes it very cool :) Hope everyone enjoys these!
