3/24 Project - Digital Texture Composition

Using a digital camera, students will spend the first class photographing a vast array of textures. Images can range from minimal to complex and should explore the tactile qualities of the subject in an abstract way. During the second working period, students will integrate the texture photographs into a creative Photoshop composition. The full range of effects in Photoshop may be utilized including color and value adjustments, filters and blending modes. Emphasis will be on creating a dynamic abstract composition. No additional elements other than the original source photos may be used in the composition.
