Eye See the HCC

Eye See the HCC 2

Can You See What I See?

Find or take a photo of an eye. Take another image of whatever you want, and overlay the image onto the eye. Make the image in the eye smaller so that it looks like a reflection in the person’s eye. Turning down the opacity of the image in the eye helps give a reflection sort of look. Let us see what the person in the photo is seeing through their eyes.

I decided that I would use my best friend Morgan’s eye to take a picture of because her eyes are the prettiest shade of blue and green (and she was sitting right next to me).  We are both very involved on campus and take a difficult course load pretty much every semester.  Since we spend a lot of time in the Hurley Convergence Center I thought it would be appropriate to picture that reflected in her eye.  I think this shows what a majority of involved students at Mary Wash see everyday as they try to balance their activities and school work.

I imported the photograph I took of Morgan’s eye into Canva.com, as well as, the picture I took of the Hurley Convergence Center.

I then went to the Elements Menu and searched for a circle.

I chose a circle that allows you to insert a photograph to make it circular.

I inserted the photograph of the HCC into the circle.

I then adjusted the size of the circle to cover the majority of the eye.

I then turned down the transparency of the photograph of the HCC

After I saved the image I realized that the edge of the HCC circle was to distinct in the photograph.Untitled design

So I pulled the Photograph into Photoshop.

In Photoshop I used the spot healing brush to soften the edge of the HCC circle.

Flickr. has been down all day since I have been working and will not let me upload anything to it at this time, so I just inserted the photograph straight off my laptop.   However, once Flickr. is up and running again I plan to upload this image to Flickr.

For how little I know about editing photographs I think I did a fairly good job at showing what Morgan sees through her eyes on what is pretty much a daily basis.  Let me know what you all think!

    This looks great! I looked at this assignment but thought it seemed a little daunting for week one. I am really impressed with how well it turned out!
    P.S. I also really love ALL of the titles on your posts. Literally all of them.
