Cropping your image to a selected area can remove unwanted elements in your composition. When enlarging your image, however, remember that making it too big can result in loss of image quality. For this photograph, the image was enlarged and then cropped around the dog’s face, resulting in a fun-loving, offbeat portrait. Before adjusting the color variations in this photograph, the brightness and contrast were brought up high. Next the image was converted from RGB color to grayscale in order to remove all color and create a clean palette.
If you want to transfer your image onto paper, it is a good idea to use a heavyweight paper (such as Arches), or prime the paper with gesso first. Apply a thin, even coat of soft gel medium to the area onto which you want to transfer the image, and place the ink-jet image facedown onto the gel. Using a brayer, apply even pressure to the back of the image, and let it sit for approximately two to three minutes. Test the transfer by pulling back a corner and checking to see if the image has transferred onto the gel.
As seen in this altered book spread, these remaining images were used to create intriguing backgrounds that were then reworked with photographs and additional paper elements.
