Playing around with photoshop was definitely the best step in the development of my project. Not only does the software let me edit pictures easily, changing the colour with a simple click of a button to achieve the look I am going for, but it will help me to achieve the psychedelic look I am going for.
As I am inspired by Victor Moscoso’s photographic psychedelic posters, I wanted to try and alter the image of an idols as inspiration for what I could use within my poster. The whole process made it much easier for me to achieve the psychedelic look I am looking for – much harder to achieve if I decided to go down the screenprinting route.
Which image went the best was definitely the Buddy Holly edits. Even though all the images are similar: icons, black and white, posing for the camera, Buddy Holly seems to have that charm that is completely opposite to the psychedelic freedom from the 60’s.
My favourite edited image was the blue and orange Buddy Holly image. Why this was a personal favourite of mine was due to how it looks quite similar to Moscoso’s own photographic posters. The colours are very similar and I made the illusion that my Buddy aholly was created by photographic montage; this is something I will definitely use in the future for my psychedelic posters or images.
