P3: Photodesign


  1. Description: Create a full color bleed photo-design using an original photo and Photoshop. Learn to use Photoshop tools to improve photos.
  2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles): I started with learning some lighting and camera techniques to take the photo. After I took the photo, I added some effects in Photoshop to boost the vibrancy and hue of the tennis ball and increase the intensity of the shadows. I then learned to add some shapes in Photoshop. After playing with the shapes, I decided to go with a simpler design of the lines. I aligned the lines and text with the edge of the tennis ball and the edge of the word “Wilson.” I then added the text and matched the color of the racket and the tennis ball to make a complementary color scheme.
  3. Message: The message in this photo is focused on tennis and the quote by Mitch Hedberg.
  4. Audience: The audience is those who play or like tennis.
  5. Top Thing Learned: How to use lighting in photos and how to edit in Photoshop.
  6. Color scheme and color names: The color scheme is complementary using the colors red and green.

  9. Thumbnail of original, unedited image inserted: lowkeyphotodesign 041

  1. I really like you design, I think that you picture of the tennis ball is great. The picture is really clear and the way you edited it makes the colors really pop. I like the colors you chose, they work well together and they match the photo which helps tie everything together nicely. The quote you chose matches the theme of your picture nicely and is a humorous way to inspire others to practice more. Overall you did a really good job.
