Scanned Images

Today I had to bring my scanned images that I had independently scanned last week. This morning I had an hour to scan and produce more images that I would need in my later photoshop session. In my photoshop session we learned how to create a layered image. We played around with different settings and experimented with quick short cuts. Using the basic settings such as exposure, brightness, contrast, hue, saturation as well as the opacity I worked on developing my photoshop editing skills .

Following on we had a group discussion about all our images which were displayed on a slide show. We received great feedback on our final images as a group. Amongst all the images shown by the class there was a variety of different scans produced using negatives, prints and sentimental objects. I was intrigued with how personal some of the images were, ranging from weddings photos to childhood memories. Where as on the other hand some images had no purpose or meaning to them what so ever.

There were images that were found at flee markets and charity shops. When looking at these images it was sad to see how someone had giving those images away, something that was once personal to themselves was now in the hands of a stranger. Every image had its own meaning and story behind it for the person that produced them, however the same images could have been interpreted in a different way by the viewers.

Here are a few examples of my own images. For these I experimented with changing the hue and saturation as well as HDR. My aim was to make my images look abstract and unusual, producing something different to my previous works.
