Eye See the HCC Tutorial

To create this reflection in my friend Morgan’s eye I followed the steps listed below in this post.

I imported the photograph I took of Morgan’s eye into Canva.com.

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 uploaded a photograph I took of the HCC into Canva and then 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.

So I uploaded the Photograph into Photoshop.

In Photoshop I used the spot healing brush to soften the edge of the HCC circle. By clicking where I wanted the image to blend better.

I saved the photograph to my desktop and then uploaded it to Flickr. prior to embedding it in this post.

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.  It was super easy and if you have any questions about how I did it feel free to ask!
