What a Memory of Roses
WHY NOT PHOTOGRAPH YOUR PHOTOGRAPH?
A good way to make a memory a "good memory" is to photograph it.
The above image has many elements.
To start off - my husband gave me some roses.
I took many different pictures of the roses and settled on one image I liked.
I then added to the image a background that I had created and made some adjustments on the opacity of the background layer.
I then did some smudging to the image.
I then printed the image out to 11 x 14 in size. I then placed the printed out image into the frame.
The roses in the foreground were the actual roses in the "framed painting." Of course the roses were 1 or 2 days older. I can't remember how long it took me to get the picture ready to photographed in the frame.
The hardest thing about this image AFTER it was framed was getting the actual frame to be straight so I could photograph it! You can't imagine how hard it was and how many pictures I took before I settled on this one.
Challenge for today:
Keep on thinking about photographing a photograph!
