This is a different type of story, but I think it still fits the purpose of the assignment.

ACCESS Photo Shoot

Youtube is covered with videos titled “Extreme Photoshop.” While the video of the heavy girl being shrunk quite a few waist sizes is impressive, most of them are rather lame. They show internet resolution files of celebrities being edited or amateur models with a glow effect.

I’ve been editing glamor and studio portraits for four years and have learned professional editing skills that have literally turned my worst photographs into my best. For my final project, I would like to choose three images and show the “story” of how layer by layer, a model is made to look perfect.

The first image will open the gate with an amateur model at Cayote Hills. Then I’ll move on to a photo shoot with Top 100 Maxim Hometown Hottie, Tiffanie Poon, who posed covered in orange and black body latex. And for the finale, I’ll show how it took 4 progressively stacked psd files, 3.5GB of pure pixel data, and over 50 adjustment layers to produce the single image in the opening spread of the upcoming issue of ACCESS Magazine.
