Just a Distant Memory

Thought it would be nice to share this VINTAGE photograph on PPF that my husband created with his camera while on our honeymoon in Bermuda. It was 1982 and back then we had a regular Canon camera.
He took two individual photographs , one a portrait and the other of me looking at something in the ocean; can't remember what it was, it was sooo long ago....now it's just a distant memory. 
Once he took those two pics he then layered them together and got this image you see here; it's probably one of the few pictures of me I am comfortable showing ...haha.
Anyway, I thought it be fun to change the colouring of the photograph up a bit. I wonder what my dearest thinks : )

1982 ~ Original

Sorry for misleading you folks. The first photograph you see in this post was entirely done with the canon camera. What  my husband did was take the first picture of me in the water and then took the second picture on top of the first picture creating a double exposure - the film didn't advance; a feature of the Canon camera A1 SLR we had back then. No special editing programs were used.

As for the second photograph, I used Flickr Avery Program with their filters , not photoshop. Hope this clears things up a bit.

Painting in Photoshop and creating digital art is so rewarding and amazing art work can be achieved.
My son got me the program , now it's a matter of applying myself to learning the program, perhaps between painting breaks : ) I love incorporating original paintings into the digital art work, always gives quite a surprise at the end .

Both photographs are lovely. I really need to learn more about photoshop. So much to learn but how exciting once I do.

Kirstin McCulloch said...

I love that the image was created 'old school' I would have loved to know how to do that when I was running around with my dad's old cannon.

I love the colours you applied to it so many years later

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea

The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
