By using Photoshop, I was able to transform an ordinary picture of me reading a book on the beach into a more artistic photo. For this assignment, I chose to remove an element of the original photo and add a filter.
The element I removed was the red sticker on the book which I felt looked too distracting. I removed the sticker using the paint brush as well as the healing brush. The healing brush helped me blend the colors in that I used to paint over the red sticker.
The filter I chose was the dry-brush filter and I changed the sharpness and brush stroke size to make sure the waves in the background were still well defined. I chose this filter because I thought it added a more nautical feel to the photo and helped blend in the beachgrass with the sand.
