The concept behind this Ready For My Closeup assignment was to take a closeup of someone’s face and put it together with something that contrasts with what their face is suggesting. In this one, I made it look like Hugh Jackman really hates ducklings.
I used Photoshop to paste Hugh Jackman’s face over a stock photo of some grass. All the ducklings in the background are from separate pictures of ducklings in grass that I added in. To make sure they blended in to the picture, I used the eraser tool and the opacity tool to make the edges as close as possible. I also adjusted the color and saturation to make sure the different grasses in the pictures matched the background grass picture I used.
