Project Name: Tone Mapping

Project Goal: To learn how to use tone mapping when editing photos in PhotoShop.

Project Narrative: These are some pictures I took inside and outside my house. I used tone mapping to intensify certain colors and details.

Here are some examples of tone mapping on photos I have taken.

It was a little dark with just the gradient mapping, so I adjusted the midtone levels.

Retouch-Before-and-After

Project Name: Photo Retouching

Project Goal: The goal of this project was to take a less than perfect photo and edit it to remove imperfections, while still looking natural.

Project Narrative: In class, our teacher sent everyone a picture of a girl who looked like she needed a little photoshopping. He went through how to use different tools that can cover blemishes, patch up blotchy skin, and how to brighten the eyes and whiten teeth.
