For my second DS106 Assignment, I chose the Common Everyday Object. The assignment is simply described as “Take pictures of a common everyday object and manipulate the colors”.
I took the picture with my cell phone and sent it to my PC.First, I made the picture monochrome.Then, I cut out the kettle and changed the color so that it differs from the background.Next, I balanced the colors and straightened the contrast.Finally, I added an effect named Rabica to make it look like a watercolor painting.
I use the kettle every day to make tea, so the kettle is one of the most frequently used items in my kitchen. I wanted to change it to vivid colors. I also wanted to try a new effect and used a light watercolor effect for the first time. The original photo is below.
