    ~ the magic lies in the organization of the subject and the color

    ~ i do not think photo shop was used to make the image like it is i think it may have been used to brighten the colors or give it the white back ground in some cases

  5. The magic in these photos is in the calm feeling of organization that everyone secretly obsesses over inside. As for Photoshop, I’m sure it wasn’t needed to make these photos. Just patience and concentration. When we make organized photos such as these, it gives everyone a sense of completeness, something is perfect and serene. What I can do to incorporate this into my photos is find something that looks like it can be organized and connect it to my own ideas.

  6. The verity of colors and patterns. I don’t believe its Photoshop It appears to be how the items are arrange and set up. Going a long ways away for creating an image is getting something different and unique. Creating a visual effect will catch the eyes of the viewers and make them think they have no life. But it creates a really cool image and a visual effect that would be good to keep in mind when taking pictures of my own.

  7. I believe that the Magic lies is the beautiful colors that is in one of the photos. I believe that there is a way of getting those type of photos I think all you need to do is just line up the different types of colors and match them. The photographer took time and effort into these photos by gathering all the colors and arranging them by colors. I think I would take and arrange color markers or color pencils and maybe arrange them.

  8. It lies in the colors and they way the photographer rearranged them how they want them arranged. Photoshop is not the answer it is the way the objects are arranged. You not only get a really cool photo but you also put work into the photo which makes it so much better. That if you put time and effort than you get get a cool photo and you feel more accomplished rather than if you were just to go eh okay.

  9. These photos are defiantly satisfying people’s slight ocd inside. Photoshop was not what made these photos stand out, but more so the organization of color. They seem to be organized in such a way such as over time, growth, and color. To incorporate this idea I am thinking of putting more into my photos, and organize/plan everything out, from colors, size etc.

    Is Photoshop the answer? I don’t think she used that much Photoshop in her images. I think it is more of how she arranged the products and the colors she chose.

  11. I think the magic is shown in the vibrancy of the color and the use of lines in each photo. I think that Photoshop wasn’t the only thing that made the photos perfect, but I do believe like any photo that that the Photoshop emphasized the subjects and colors of the photo. The way the subjects were arranged is what really made a statement in these photographs.When we spend extra time focusing on the arrangement and not relying on Photoshop to do all the justice for the photos, you will make an even better photo and have you could use the Photoshop to just make the photo that much better.

  15. lately, I’ve noticed that almost all the warm ups have had really neat contrasting colors, which makes them pop. The photos probably already looked nice before ps, but ps probably enhanced the colors and improved the pictures. I could apply the arrangements and colors used in these photographs to make my own better.

  16. Where does the magic lie in these photographs? The magic lies in the beautiful colors and perfect arrangement of the objects.

    Is Photoshop the answer? Or is it in the way these items are arranged? No I don’t think that Photoshop is the answer, more of the way the items are arranged. The colors go well together as well as the arrangement.

    What happens when we go to long lengths to create a visual effect, when we put in the work of painstakingly arranging several objects like they do in these photographs? It could take waaaaay longer to edit and take these pictures more than having to just take a regular picture.

    What could you take out of these photos to apply to your own photography? Make the colors in a certain arrangement so it looks like the object is fading or getting old/rotting. Make objects colorful so that it is more appealing to the eye.

  18. the magic in these photos lie i believe in the range and contrast of colors being organized like in the fruity pebbles image and it is also shown in the effort made to organize them so seamlessly like in the picture showing the walnut. i believe that these images were made partly in Photoshop but the organizing of objects was most likely done in person, albeit time consuming. but when we go to such extreme lengths we remove the natural identity of something such as in the bowl of cereal, organizing them makes you recognize each and every color and piece on its own instead of mixed in bowl but it still makes for a good photo; organizing this way changes the way we may perceive an object. from this we could take insight into looking at things differently and then bringing to life those thoughts through images.

  19. It lies on the color, how amazing these colors look. I wouldn’t think so, It really doesn’t look photo shopped. The images becomes more colorful and great to look at. The arrangements, I could apply them into my photos when I take them.

  20. In these photographs the magic lies in how the photographer arranges and organizes the subjects in the image. Photoshop can enhance the color of the subjects but it isn’t as important as how the items were arranged. When we go long lengths to create a visual effect and put in the work like this photographer did, our photos will be more eye catching and you’ll just get better images overall. What I want to take out of these photos is that when you spend time to actually set up a photo and use patterns and colors to enhance it, the image will turn out better.

  21. the magic lies in the photographer moving things before taking the photo and lining them up, and choosing bright colors. i dont think photo was done so no Photoshop isn’t the answer, i thinks its more on how the items are arranged. It makes the photo turn out great, it kicks it up a notch. i could arrange props in my photos from now on
