Mashup Assignments: Photo Mash
This mashup assignment said to create an image of 2 actors from different movies and place them into the same scene together.
I decided to do Heath Ledger as the Joker in the Dark Knight and Jared Leto as the Joker in Suicide Squad. I image Ledger coming to visit Leto and giving him advice on how to be a better Joker while he is confined in the asylum. Or maybe the two are just catching up over a cup of coffee.
I found 2 images of each Joker in a similar setting, in my case, sitting across from someone at a table. I used Photoshop to crop Ledger out and paste him to the Suicide Squad scene. I manipulated the color of Ledger to match closer to the setting. I ended up changing the whole color of the setting to be darker so the (not so great) photoshop was less noticeable.
I really enjoyed this assignment because it gave me a chance to finally practice photoshop and to experiment with manipulating colors to make the image look better. I missed part of Ledger’s hand when cropping so I placed a Starbucks logo over the coffee cup to hide his hand. I had a lot of fun with this assignment and hope to do more like it soon!
