Officially the penultimate project
Step 1: Choose a tutorial --
One Point Exterior Perspective
1 Point Perspective Interior,
Step 2: Add details from images you find online to create your composite image.
What is a composite image? A composite Image is a picture that is made from the combination of multiple images merged into a single surface. Example: Create a Fantasy City Using Architectural Photographs
What do I do if the perspectives of my source images do not match the perspective of my final image?
1) Correct for lens distortion
Photoshop Help: Use the Adaptive Wide Angle filter
Video: Adaptive Wide Angle
2) Match the perspective
Photoshop Help: Transform objects
Video: Fit Objects Into Perspective
Step 3 will involve correcting for tone, adding shadows, and atmospheric perspective. We will discuss Step 3 next Wednesday :)
Step 3: Make it all look as if it belongs together.
• Match the tone (color) throughout the image
Photoshop Help: Match, replace, and mix colors
Video: Photoshop Color Matching: The Fastest Method
• Add shadows wherever necessary
Photoshop Help: Layer effects and styles

The quiz will be given on Friday, May 20th, 2016
Picture plane: the flat surface or plane in which the artist organizes the picture.
Scale (related to proportion): a technique where the artist makes one object larger than another in order to cause the larger object to appear closer to us than the smaller object.
Overlapping: a technique where the artist creates the illusion of depth by placing one object in front of another.
High-low placement: a technique where the artist places an object lower in the picture plane to make it appear closer to us than another object that is placed higher.
Arial perspective: a technique where the artist reduces the detail, and color intensity, as well as shifts the hue of an object toward the blueish end of the visible light spectrum in order to give the illusion of distance.
