1. The Old Door to the Future [edited]: Using the HDR program called “Dynamic Photo,” I took a single JPEG image and converted it to HDR using the “Full HDR Process.” For this HDR creation, I used the “Ultra-Contrast” Tone Map to get an image with more vibrance and contrast. I also reduced the Dramatic Light Radius and Dramatic Light Strength to make it a little more believable to the eye. Then, I saved this high resolution image as a Photoshop file (psd) and used Photoshop Adjustment layers to increase the brightness and vibrance/saturation of parts of the image. I then applied the image to two upper layers and made one very sharp and one very blurry. By using masks, I was able to add high levels of sharpness to some focal points of the image, while blurring out other portions of the image to enhance the depth of field. Towards the end, I added the type and based their colors from selected portions of the image. I then grouped the type layers together in a folder and added a mask to the folder, giving texture to the type. This mask was created by selecting parts of the texture of peeling paint (from image #3: “A Paint Peeling Delight”) using the Magic Wand Tool, going to the type mask layer, and then filling those selections with different gray values.
