This class is an intermediate study of photography that focuses on developing skills learned in Photo I and bringing new skills to the forefront. We will explore more serious forms of photography and expect a more professional outcome.
Renaissance Style Pet Portrait
For this assignment you will take a photograph of your pet (or a friend's pet if you don't have one) and turn them into a renaissance style portrait. This is a lot of photoshop work to attach your pet's head to a renaissance style oil painting and make them look regal. I have attached a few high resolution renaissance style portraits for your use, but you can also search your own. Make sure the image you download is high resolution though so you can properly attach your pet's head to the portrait.
• Check out this youtube tutorial on how to make your pet into an oil painting portrait
• Download a renaissance portrait to use as your background (remember to find a large image to work with, otherwise you may not be able to print) or you can use one of the ones I attached in your google classroom assignment
• You want to consider where your pet is looking when you are decidsing on which portrait to use.
• Exposure is important in these images, as well as size, so don't use an iPhone image for this.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
