Digital creativity

Workshop-You are beautiful

You are beautiful

Many young people are insecure about their looks. In itself, this is not surprising, as images of 'perfectly' shaped photo models, artists, athletes and film stars are everywhere. Sometimes this unrealistic aspiration can lead to excesses such as Bulimia or Anorexia. Not surprisingly, many of these young people have a false image of themselves and others. They often do not know that these perfect pictures are often created through photo editing. In this workshop, students learn all about the art of photo editing. They will use all kinds of techniques related to digital retouching, such as smart retouching, working with layers, liquify, masking and layer modes. They are tasked with completely reshaping a photo of themselves or a well-known person into the ideal image they have in mind. They are also instructed to choose another photo and make a deformed version of it.
