Photoshop Water Color Effect

Posted on Oct 25, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Nov 3, 2015

Students will design a collage centered around a theme of their choice.  Each image will be placed individually on the canvas and laid out according to their design.  Each image must be water color designed one at a time to create the effect.  If you flatten and try all at once, there is a chance of inconsistency in overall design and it will look fake.  This is a good lesson to practice layer masking, image adjustments and perspective, color theory and typography. You can use your own color effects as well as your own background canvas.  These were given when I found this tutorial online.  Blend Modes will depend on the images and the Color used so suggested blends are guidelines not rules!

Creativity Booster

Posted on Sep 27, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Nov 19, 2015

Over the course of this year I have been attempting to build my skills in a range of Adobe programs (particularly Photoshop and After Effects). I have given myself a task using the restriction method where I must create as many new animations as possible using the same source material. Each animation must be based around the image you see here (or some derivative of it) - an emblem of sorts that I have created for myself. The animations must also perform a perfect loop so that they can be saved as GIFs. Although not a specific restriction I have also been endeavouring to keep file size small given the nature and use of GIFs.  Skills in programs like Photoshop and After Effects are like muscles in the body - if you exercise them they will grow and strengthen and if not you will begin to lose the ability to do things you once found simple. This exercise has been a great boon for me in terms of my own skills and my creative thinking and problem solving - I can only imagine what students woul... Read More

"Punar Janam or Re-Birth"

Posted on Sep 1, 2015 by Dhanaraj Keezhara Last Activity on Sep 6, 2015

As the theme for Art Bengaluru 2014 is the Renaissance, the children of Christel House Bangalore, from grades 9 to 12, have created an installation concept “ PUNARJANI or Re- Birth” where every single facet has a meaning, and a dimension of reality that stems from the daily struggles that both they and their families have to face as they negotiate the severe inequalities and deprivation that is part of their world. This concept was developed by the children over a series of discussions and brainstorming sessions with the focus on being as creative as possible - in tribute to the Renaissance - so that the viewer might find a new way of looking at the familiar. And hence the installation was designed with humble everyday material –cardboard boxes, paper plates, metal wire – where the haphazard pile-up of colourfully-painted boxes represents the varying stages that human kind has gone through right from evolution to the modern era, facing and embracing all that has come it...

It's our job to introduce and guide our students through the world of Creative Productions.  We learn them to provide solutions in the problems they encounter. They learn to design,  produce and maintain their contact with costumers. In our education we take full advantage  of all the opportunities that Adobe has to offer. We select the media that best suits specific  goals. Ideas become solutions through the innovative technologies provided.  We can hear it when opportunity knocks.

Cinemagraphs in Photoshop

Posted on May 13, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

This short tutorial will run you through one method of creating a cinemagraph in Photoshop. A cinemagraph is a photograph with very subtle repeating movement. This tutorial will run you through techniques and skills associated with this medium which include Masks, Converting Video Frames to Layers, and Saving for the Web among others.  This is a great technique for creating artworks but can also be very useful in terms of presenting repeated instructional images. A great example of this are Daria Khoroshavina's animated photographic recipes which can be found on her Behance profile.
