The two main image manipulation techniques that i will be using in my image are perspective warp and being able to link effects to a single layer.
For both technical issues i found very helpful videos that clearly displayed what i had to do

Linking visual adjustment layers to a single layer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5oO6gkLVks
This has helped me immensely in the production and composition of my image and will therefore make the meaning of my image clearer. I have used the linking of visual adjustment layers to a single layer in many cases in my image to help with changing the colour of clothing and background. the perspective warp will most likely be used on a wall in the background to give it the appearance that it is disappearing in to the distance. this helps to give my image a sense of depth and allows it to be more visually striking.
