Experiments With My Photography: 'We're All Mad Here'

FIRST Experiements with the theme: Alice in Wonderland
This is a photograph from my first attempt at this particular set. The theme is Alice in Wonderland, but the concept focuses on the Cheshire Cat.

The eyes and grin represent that of the Cheshire Cat
The Quote is said by the Cheshire Cat in the movie.


I edited the cat out and printed the picture off on an A3 page:

This is the chosen image, although I accidently closed the file without tkaing screenshots of the process I took, it's fairly similar to the processes of the others:
  1. Open file in Photoshop
  2. Duplicate layer
  3. Crop
  4. Adjustment Layer Levels
  5. Select tiles - Adjustment Layer Vibrance and Saturation
  6. Select top right corner - Adjustment Layer Levels (remove white reflection and crease)
  7. Edit Adjustment Layer Levels to darken
  8. Duplicate layer, convert to Smart Filter and Sharpen (smart sharpen)
Further Editing:

Editing Adjustment Layer Levels:

Edit Adjustment Layer Levels of top right corner layer:

Although this image is dark, in comparison to the other backgrounds of all my other images, I love it! The Cheshire Cat comes out of no where in the movie and pops up when he feels like it, so I think the black brings out this aspect! The cotnrast also makes his smiling and cheeky teeth stand out more, which is the main idea behind this image! I love it, it's simple and quirky!
