Moody ds106

Today I chose this DS106 assignment, which requires us to

change the mood or tone of a photograph by altering the contrast, brightness, hue, saturation, exposure, etc.

I enjoyed working with Gimp, and feel for the first time that I used it rather successfully (it’s about time!)

Below is the image I started with– tulips in the park by Ontakesan Dorm. I took this photo during my first semester in Tokyo.

I wanted to make it feel older, and a little more nostalgic, so I began by increasing the contrast and lowering the brightness. After that I changed the color balance, bring out the yellow and muting the red a bit. Below is what I ended up with.

Nothing fancy, but I feel like it changed the mood a bit, and I’m looking forward to playing with some more images in Gimp.
