This was another difficult, time-consuming photography project for me but I am learning a lot! It has taken me a lot of time to learn how to control and adjust my aperture, ISO, and shutter speed on my new camera. I spent hours taking many different photos with many different settings to try and get the exposure that I was striving to achieve. Then I had to spend time learning Photoshop and how to make a collage of photos.
I chose my subject to by my piano, as I love music and it is a big part of my life. I wanted to capture the many different perspectives of my beautiful piano. In Lightroom, I slightly adjusted the vibrancy, contrast, and clarity on most of my images. Then I opened my images in Photoshop to create a collage with my various piano images. In my last photo, I used an old paper image as an overlay to blend with my piano for a cool effect. I liked learning how to blend images.
