My granddaughter Zoe photographed on my back verandah yesterday, Treated in CS3 to create a nostalgic image – original photograph plus two photos of textured material and the ‘ticking’ background were used.

Thanks to Sarah for saving me from total baldness by offering advice, finding the appropriate background, and helping with finishing tweaks! (Now to remember the shortcuts!!!)

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    Wow , this is really beautiful ,I love the aged look you have given the picture .

  • She’d just had dance classes – I couldn’t resist the ‘classic’ look so we rigged up a very dodgy sheet for a background, and fired off some shots – getting from an imagined image to the real thing then took quite a lot of trial and error! Thanks Irene for the kind words.
