EYE See You

One day while I was scrolling through Instagram I found this image below.

I liked it so much so that I decided to save it, in hope to recreate something similar one day. Being that I am not an artist who draws, I was hoping that it was something I could do using my camera. The way I pictured it in my head was that I will be able to get close to someone’s eye while they are looking at something else and take the picture. I tried it and it did not work at all. Thinking through the process I realized why it did not work and decided to go about it another way. I went on youtube and searched for tutorials and I came across a tutorial detailing how to join two photos together. It was a very helpful and basic tutorial to follow and it allowed me to create the image below in photoshop.

Being that one of my goals this year is to learn how to use photoshop more, it was definitely useful that the person who made the tutorial used photoshop. For both of the images, I downloaded them from Flickr. Flickr is a great tool to use when you want access to photos that you can download, adjust to your liking and re-post for others to see. For now I am going to work on perfecting recreating this image to make it look more realistic. Wish me luck!
