Digital Photography: Pop Art Portraits

Digital Photography Students have been working on making portraits in the style of Andy Warhol's "Marilyn Monroe". We began by looking at examples of Pop Art and finding information through a Scholastic Art reading. We then worked on manipulating the images through Photoshop. A new skill the students learned through this project was adjusting the threshold of an image to make it a high contrast black and white image. 

After this step, students worked on painting color behind the image. They were encouraged to keep the brush hardness at 100% so that the edges were clear. They were also asked to focus on using the different areas of color to separate portions of the image.
