Image calibration

Earlier today we compared my images on three different screens; my mac laptop, an iPad, and the monitors and UWE. On each screen the colouring of images looked slightly different as the screens had not been calibrated. I have been working on my laptop to edit my images and have catered to the calibration of that screen, however, this was not in sync with the other screen tested. I look up some tutorials on calibrating my monitor with photoshop and printers and this is what I gathered:

1. Go to my display settings and in the advanced tab, set my colour management to preferred program (adobe)

2.Open photoshop-colour setting

3.Match setting I have previously selected in display settings (Adobe)

4. In print screen select the same program again in drop menu


Final stages of editing

In our most recent conversation about my project, we discussed how the ‘decaying’ parts of my images were lacking definition and a clean ‘break’ between the normal skin and the decaying parts. To  create this effect I created a fabricated flesh wound using liquid latex, tissue paper and skin coloured paint.

I will be carrying out another shoot on Friday in which I will have 3 new models which should be about 9 new edited photo’s and new shots of mould to create a different effect to the photo’s I have edited so far.

Editing #1




This is my first attempt at editing my photo’s alone. From trying and testing the method, I learnt that I will need as many different shots of the mould as I can get.  In the photo’s I had, the depth of field was very shallow due to how close up they were taken, this meant that I could only use small sections from each shot so more shots will give me more options when it comes down to editing.
