Even though have finished shooting my photos, continual research has proved to be helpful. Here are things I am going to keep in mind when editing my final image:
Although no one can touch what’s in a photo, communicating the texture of it is still important. To create a more realistic and three-dimensional appearance, I will focus on enhancing the textures in my image as much as possible. For example I will try making the lollipop look shiny as if it has been licked, and the decaying teeth a rough texture.
The beauty of digitally editing photos is that you can play with the form of objects without distorting the rest of the image. I am going to experiment with the proportions in my image, particularly making enlarging the lollipop and possibly the size of the teeth to add interest and emphasis and exaggerate my message.
