Our brief was take a pre chosen image and turn it into an album cover using Photoshop/Lightroom. This outcome was influenced by reggie culture, i have tried to show this by using the colours mainly associated with this genre of music. This outcome has also been influenced by the motion and pose of the models.
To begin the edit I selected both of the models and removed the background and placed them on a separate layer. I gave the image depth by making one model smaller than the other.
I chose this image to be the background as it had a different texture to add to the image, adding this background will also add depth to the image.
This image will add the colour, adding to the genre, whilst adding an interesting effect. I will have this image on a separate layer and set the transparency to 50%.
