In this picture I really like how the top part of the girls head has been cropped so that her face and arm frame the picture. I also
like the lighting and how the light is very bright on the right side of her face and the arm but it’s just a bit darker on the left hand side which creates a bigger definition in the face.
The girl’s facial emotion fits in with the black and white effect really well because it looks very intense and serious. The black
and white effect also helps the picture stand out because it helps the lighting and the features more visible.
In photo-shop I increased the contrast a little bit so that the detail in the hair and face was more defined. I didn't want to increase
it to much because I like the grey and white colours against the black background and if I increased it to much the colours would be black and white. I also I duplicated the layer twice and changed the opacity to 20% on the third
layer, then I used the Gaussian blur on the second layer and put the opacity up
to 100% again on the third layer. Afterwards I used the eraser on the skin and because the second layer was still in Gaussian blur the skin became smooth andthe eyes started to stand out more from the rest of the face. Then I flattened the image.
This picture is my favourite out of all the pictures in this project because I love how it’s an unusual angle but its still simple but
effective composition because the fact that she has her hands up against her on face and not much emotion on her face makes the picture look quiet and undisturbed.
