FAIRMONT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

SMOKEYDOGSOCKS

VACAVILLE, CALIFORNIA, United States

Artist's Description

WITH THE SUN SETTING BEHIND THE NEW “FAIRMONT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL”, IT IS HARD TO GET ANY KIND OF DETAIL OR COLOR ON THE EAST SIDE OR THE NORTH SIDE OF THE BUILDING. SO, WITH THE AID OF ADOBE PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS 3.0, I DID SOME IMAGE MANIPULATION, IN ORDER TO GIVE THE DARK SIDE, SOME LIGHT AND DETAIL. THE OTHER THING I DID TO IT WAS USE THE POSTER EDGES FILTER ON IT AND THAT GAVE IT THE DRAWN LOOK. IT ALSO HELPED WITH BEING ABLE TO SEE THE DETAIL IN THE IMAGE. MY CAMERA, HAS SETTINGS IN IT THAT WOULD DO THE IMAGE STABILIZATION AS THE SHOT IS BEING TAKEN, BUT I PREFER TO USE THE AUTO SETTINGS AND THEN PLAY WITH THE IMAGE IN PHOTOSHOP. THIS SCHOOL IN VACAVILLE CALIFORNIA WAS FINISHED JUST IN TIME FOR THE 2009-2010 SCHOOL YEAR. IT COVERS FROM KINDERGARTEN UP TO THE SIXTH GRADE. THE ONE BUILDING I WANTED TO SEE GONE, IS THE ONLY BUILDING THEY DIDN’T TEAR. IT WAS THE KINDERGARTEN BUILDING I WANTED TO SEE GONE AND IT’S THE ONLY ONE THAT DIDN’T GO. SO, THE NEW SCHOOL HAS NEW LOOKS AND COLORS AND I STILL HAVE TO LOOK AT THE OLD GREY, NOW DAY CARE BUILDING. I TOOK THIS SHOT WITH MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL 300D AND MY QUANTARAY 70-300 AF MACRO TELEPHOTO LENS. IT IS ALSO HAND HELD, SO THE BUILDING EDGES WERE A LITTLE BIT SOFT AND THAT WAS THE REASON FOR THE ENHANCEMENT OF THE IMAGE.
