Diptych: Portrait / Self-Portrait
You are asked to produce 2 images in Photoshop that will in some way tell a story about its subject and also have a tension between each other. These 2 images are working together to inform the viewer about its subject.
Please use images of people. They can be of you or another person (or people). Do Not use images of Pets.
One page, double-spaced
In your response, please supply more information who your diptych is describing, how the 2 images are working together and what technical process you used to further your ideas within your work.
- Ability to communicate through visual choices
- Ability to create a relationship between images
- Advanced use of Photoshop skills
Themes you may want to consider:
- Compositing - (as a dominate style)
- Effects - (it could be one of the many stylized techniques that we learned in class)
- Erasures, Filled in Spaces, Drawing on the subject
- Using Text along with your subject
- ReEnactments - (by looking at Art Historical references you may choose to do set-ups that mimic and/or pay homage to the original)
- Begin with a digital image file that is at least
3300px X 2550px
(this will translate to 8.5" x 11" @ 300ppi)
- Use at least 1 original photograph in each image (if not all original).
If using stock photos, make sure you have the rights to do so.
- Create a total of 2 digital image files that function as a Diptych
- Create 1 composite image where you place both images together - use this image as a way to really consider the relationship between the two. You can create a frame, or control the distance between them. You also get to place them face to face, or back to back.
Save your digital files in the following format:
