QUOTE:
"Well a picture can express a thousand words to describe all the beauty of life you give
And if the world was yours to do over, I know you'd paint a better place to live
Where the colours would swirl and the boys and girls can grow in peace and harmony ...
Cause each and every time you touch the spray paint can
Michelangelo's soul controls your hand."
-GRANDMASTER FLASH (Beat Street Lyrics)

EQ- HOW CAN A FILM CAPTURE AN ERA?


“The train would slide into a subway station; you’re standing there, everything is gray and gloomy and all of a sudden one of those graffiti trains slides in and brightens the place like a big bouquet from Latin America. At first it seems anarchical – makes you wonder if the subways are working properly. Then you get used to it. The city is like a newspaper anyway, so it’s natural to see writing all over the place.”
-Norman Mailer

AIM: HOW CAN I MAKE A ROOM LOOK REALISTIC AND THREE DIMENSIONAL?

To cover a wall of a room, make a new layer. Use the Polygonal Lasso to select the wall. Use the Paint Bucket Tool. Choose a color by clicking on the color box at the bottom of the Toolbar. To match a color, roll over the color on your Collage you want to match. You will see the Eye Dropper Tool come up. This allows you to click and match perfectly any color. Click, go back to the Paint Bucket Tool and paint the selection. This will totally cover the area. To make it look three dimensional, make a new layer directly above the Wall layer. Use the Paintbrush tool. Set the brush to 0% Hardness and make the brush size larger. Make the color white. Paint a slightly irregular circle on your new layer. Go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur. Make the radius larger until you get the look you want.

To make the room look even more three dimensional and the edges look more shaded, try the Burn Tool set at a soft brush. Experiment with Midtones, Shadows and Exposure.
Try using the Burn, Dodge or Sponge Tools to darken, lighten or saturate an area.

DODGE, BURN and SPONGE TOOL

The Dodge Tool lightens an area.
The Burn Tool Darkens an area.
The Sponge Tool intensifies the color of an area.

AIM: HOW CAN I MAKE MY IMAGES LOOK LIKE THEY ARE PART OF THE COLLAGE ENVIRONMENT?

Using layers and Photoshop Tools can help you make your images look like they are part of the space. If you want to change the color of a wall or floor, there are many tools to choose from. In cases of adding details to a space, you can use images from Google on a limited basis, given that you will make significant changes to that image. Try different tools to cut out the image. The Lasso Tools are a good start. Make sure you have the right layer selected.


AIM: TO USE PHOTOSHOP TOOLS TO MAKE MY BACKGROUND IMAGES BLEND.

To blend the edges of an image in Photoshop to make an object look like it is on the grass or in water, use the Erase Tool. Set it to a SOFT erase brush. Lower the opacity and experiment with what size works best. Make sure you have the right layer selected so you can blend its edges.
