Celestial Reality

Project Overview

Client or Course: Personal Project

The theme of the photograph deals with spirituality as the model, with the Eye of Horus tattoo, looks upon the statue of Buddha. There are celestial imprints surrounding her and the whole scene feels a bit like a dream with the fog and rippling border. This was my interpretation of some of my own dreams and how they feel both real and surreal at the same time.

Design Process

This was a project a partnership, with Eric Brown taking the photograph and then I digitally manipulated it. We took the original photo on a recent trip to Epcot in Florida at the Chinese pavilion and I chose to become the model for the piece. Back at home, I utilized both Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to create several blending layers. I also licensed the celestial icons through Adobe stock, then utilized Photoshop to alter the colors and add glowing backgrounds.
