Day and Night

For my last assignment of the week, I’m choosing the two star assignment, “Switch Up the Mood” It will finish the week off for me with 12.5 stars!

Here’s the photo I started with. It’s a picture of my dad and I playing a paddle game on the beach a few years ago. I wanted to see if it was possible for me to change up the image so it looked like a different time of day.

Here’s what I came up with. I shifted to make the blacks and the shadows of the photo while also adjusting the contrast. The end product looks more like twilight or a night with a bright moon than the original sunset photo. Another tool I implemented was to lower the “temperature” of the photo and introduce cool colors to signify the lack of daylight. Realistically, if you took an image at twilight, you wouldn’t be able to see the figures in the photo well either, so my edit turned out true in that way. I used again to edit this photo! I definitely think the mood of the photo changed by darkening it significantly.
