Christmas Photo Shoot

I enjoy taking photos, but to creatively manipulate those photos is even more fun. My daughter likes to give seasonal pictures of my granddaughter to all our family members. I help by shooting the photos, and using Photoshop to create something pretty from them. Our vision was to create a series of angel themed pictures. Here are excerpts from the photo shoot, and the finished products.
Angel Pose #1




Finished Product



Angel Pose #2-Collage



I snapped individual pictures of my granddaughter holding each of the letters. Then I put them together to make this angel collage.




Angel Pose #3-Flying Effect


I replaced the red ball with the planet earth, which I cut from a photo that I downloaded from the NASA website...added a night sky, some stars, and an effect that makes the angel look as if she is whooshing through the air.



My sister, who is the director of a life outreach center, asked me to create a card from this photo of two of her friends children.
Just look at those faces. They look like Botticelli paintings. Yes?

Hope you're days are filled with PEACE and JOY.
