Assignment 5: Still Life


Travis Bow: Floating PB&J


I combined the three photos (previous) in photoshop, with the bread-only layer on the bottom, then the jam/peanut butter layer, then the top bread layer. I then used a layer mask to erase everything except for the top piece of bread in the top layer, and did the same for the middle layer to leave only the jam, knife, and the shadows of the jam on the bottom piece of bread (which was difficult because the two bottom bread pieced were shifted slightly).

I then had to remove the pepper shaker from the bottom layer, which I did using a combination of copying and pasting an adjacent tile, using the stamp tool, and finishing it off with the healing brush. Finally I cropped the photo to get rid of a few of the peripheral details and straightened it slightly. Voila!
