Assignment 8: Portraiture and Light


Daniel Smith: Bizzarro Emily


I was inspired by some uncanny digital portraits of children that wereever so slightly tweaked into ways that made a real photograph look completely bizarre.

While this photograph looks bizarre, it isn't very subtle about it! I took a B/W portrait, and toned it, and made it nice in Lightroom (it is the next photograph), and then stuck it in photoshop and started warping to make the forehead and eyes larger to appear like a baby.

I then began painting a very light color later upon the portrait to give it the feel of an old handpainted B/W photograph. In the end it looks something like 1950's Zombie.
