I began with using the free hand cutting tool and cropped out Taytum and Kobie then, then proceeded to make a duplicate of the portrait. I made a duplicate so that I could change the background then put Taytum and Kobie on it. After that I changed the black background into a red gradient. Then, I put the layer of Taytum and Kobie back over the new background.
At first your eyes are attracted to the center of the flower to the things sticking up. Due to the texture and shadows on the flower your eyes will continue to go along the petals in a circular motion. Then, your eyes continues along to the light because it’s contrast with the dark flower attracts your eye.
In this picture I started by taking still life pictures of a hot wheels car that was held by fishing line over a piece of wood then edited my picture. I started by finding a background of the forest floor then added it as a new layer. I had to start working on the picture of the car first, I had to erase the black background that was originally behind the car. I then placed my car on top of the forest floor picture creating a new background. I scaled the car and the wood to be smaller so that it would look like the car was jumping a tree root from the forest floor.
This park bench demonstrated the leading lines rule perfectly. I chose this picture because both, the top and the bottom of the bench, followed the leading lines rule. They followed the rule because both of the sides were lines that lead to a vantage point which was the parking lot filled with vehicles.
