“Nova Scotia Transformed” is a digital art project taking the original photo and meticulously inserting texture from a variety of scans and photo sources. A great learning project for Adobe Photoshop! My brain hurt working on this and learning some of Photoshop at the same time–but….I learned a lot and think the results are good…quite a difference from the original. Some of the techniques used are color adjustment, magnetic lasso with “paste in”, merging layers, eraser, dodge tool, spot healing, and smudging. Learning about layers was incredibly important for control of the project. What fun!
Here’s a slightly changed version with a blue sky and lighter trees. There are endless possibilities!
