Fostering The Scorgasms

I need a big game from Foster to pull away and get a win.

The Quarterback Conundrum

Tough decision this week. I have to choose between Matt Stafford, Philip Rivers, and Andrew Luck.

Victory

We picked up win #2, ad at 2-3 are in fourth place in the league. We’re currently playoff bound! Thanks to Arian Foster for closing the door on Slylar.

Brown Hill Running

Picked up RB Andre Brown of the New York Giants who started for the injured Ahmad Bradshaw. It payed off with 113 rushing yards, 17 reception yards and 2 TDs. A total of 27 points. Pretty good for a backup.

NFL Collage Final

What I decided to do for my photograph was to take some of the players on my fantasy football team, the Scorgasms. What I did was I created a blank background first. I then found pictures of my players online. I chose Philip Rivers, Hakeem Nicks, Aaron Hernandez, Julio Jones, Matt Stafford, Ryan Matthews, Adrian Peterson, and Arian Foster. What I did for all my photos was I went in and took just the subject out. I then would mess around with the levels to create a more photogenic picture. After I messed with the levels. I then worked around with the saturation. Post saturation I used one of my favorite techniques. What I like to do with the photos in a collage type surrounding is to select a portion of the subject; in this instance I focused on the players jerseys and bodies, and sometimes helmets. I then use the cutout filter. What I like about the cutout filter is that it gives a cartoon or drawn on look to what has been selected. When I pair that with the unselected body parts of the players, I feel that it gives a real unique look. I feel that my collage looks like someone took these players, and cutout material to use on the players, but still maintained a realistic heads and arms. After doing that process to every player, I then had to make sure that the layers fit well, and looked good. Upon completion I went to the background and colored it black. I then used a craquelure texture from the filters to give another dimension to the collage. I chose the background as it also can hide any bad editing I may have done. The only feedback I received was to add a stadium in the background. I tried it, and it looked ugly. With the way the players are positioned and set up the stadium background just looked out of place. Plus I think the black background makes the players and their uniforms pop.

Week 1…I can’t believe you’ve done this!

So I lost my week 1 matchup to the Jamaican MuffCrushers by 4 points, and Fred Jackson is out for 3 weeks!
