Constance Talmadge

The beautiful silent screen actress Constance Talmadge.

“I enjoy making people laugh. Secondly, because this type of work comes easiest and most naturally to me, I am not a highly emotional type. My sister could cry real tears over two sofa cushions stuffed into a long dress and white lace cap, to look like a dead baby, and she would do it so convincingly that 900 persons out front would weep with her. That is real art, but my kind of talent would lead me to bounce that padded baby up and down on my knee with absurd grimaces that would make the same 900 roar with laughter”.

Original image is from Totally Free Images, textures have been added and tweaked in photoshop.

Photography has been a hobby now for about 15 years and is forever evolving as is my experience and techniques with photoshop. At the moment i love vintage images and have an uncontrollable urge to add textures to everything, addicted? Yes! Thanks for taking the time to view my work.
