Proj 5 - Noise

Post by glegrady » Mon Feb 04, 2013 5:48 pm

Create 2 or more images that explore noise as a visual aesthetic. Use Photoshop functions like noise, blur, low-resolution compression, scaling, reduced bitmap, and other standard image processing functions that will result in an evocative and/or conceptual outcome. Ed Ruscha's paintings from 1986-1990 at http://www.edruscha.com/site/workList.cfm?year=1990 is our reference for this assignment but also check the other examples shown in class. The intent is to create through the process of transformation. Do not go into the image and assemble by hand. Stick to basic Photoshop filters.

For this image, I used index color set to 3, reduced my image size to 50%, then increased it to 200% using nearest neighbor to keep the same effect from the pixels.

Then, I applied the same rules to this image.

On this photo I used noise, box blur, reduced the image size, made the image size large again, added median noise, then indexed the color

#1) Original:

I used first indexed color, choosing primary colors, than reduced the image (1:100) and add 50% of noise.
After that I enralged the image again , then changed add some gaussian blur and changed the levels of the RGB channel...

Image Size (1:100), add noise, enlarge with nearest neighbour, motion blur, RGB levels

For my first image I primarily used the "motion blur" and "reduce noise" filters to create different textures.

For my second image I indexed the image multiple times and added noise for a more grainy aesthetic.

My goal in this project was to veer as far away from the original imagery as possible. These are the images that I created.


#1
original

reduced from 3072x2301
to 307x230 and resized back with Nearest Neighbor
add noise
reduced to 30x23
then back again with nearest neighbor
add noise again 50

For this for image I put a few of the same image on top of itself then added some monochromatic noise.
Original:

Edit:
Untitled-2.jpg

In this image I changed the file from a .jpg to a .txt and deleted some characters in the .txt file.
After that I added noise and used image compression when I saved the image. I also made three of the four layers black and white. One is in color. The image was originally very small.

This assignment I first took an approach that incorporated the idea of noise as something that could be felt. In the case of my forst set of images I went off the idea that when I add noise to my image it would make it appear as if the amount of noise correlated to the amount of noise being heard by the figure photographed.
For the second photo shoot I abandoned using a subject to photograph and instead I walked around finding object with texture that would look interesting when abstracted by cropping out the familiarity of the object.
In this image I focused on trying to get the noise to fill in lines of information that made the object look dynamic. The noise in this image is intended to add a layer of depth through flattening the image with monochromatic noise.
