Beth

I cannot see your pic very well but if you have been married for 34 years did you get wed when you was about 5

Regards

Pete

Re: From snapshot to portraiture - Is it possible?

Hi Pete...... hehehe....... Mike and I met in school (I was 15 and he was 18).... we were "boyfriend and girlfriend" meaning he walked me to class and we sat next to each other at the occasional donkey basketball game (yes, the players played basketball while riding donkeys).......

I guess I'm telling you all this to try and cover the fact that we married at ridiculously young ages..... I was 18 and he was 21....... our first child was born 3 yrs. later..... (just in case anyone else reading this is going Hmmmm...)
Ha!

Mike used to tell our children to go through puberty BEFORE you get married... it's a lot easier......

Here we are...... I'm glad I had to use the descreen feature when I scanned this...... it covereth a multitude of sins..... (I'm going to copy and print your very nice comment then put it all over the house)

Hey, check out those eyelashes..... Mike said they look like spider legs..... they're really mine but I there must be a whole tube of mascara caked on them....

oxoxo
Beth

Whoa, girlfriend! Those "spiderlegs" take me back some years!

I think you are much more the "natural girl" type -- no spiders were harmed during removal.

Re: From snapshot to portraiture - Is it possible?

Thank you CJ....... I can't believe I didn't notice how extreme they looked..... Surely they looked like that because I looked so pale...... although, I do have a hard time leaving them alone...... I think it's because the eyelashes I have are long but there's only 4 of them...... I'll bet if the wind blew just right one might crack off and stab someone.....

This has turned into the weirdest thread....... hehehe

oxoxo

Weird?! It starts with a question about using your new camera to shoot portraits of your kids/grandkids, then moves into retouching your example, then flies to Western Australia to visit the adorable numbat, hiccups over the debate over the charm/lack of charm of said numbats, sallies into the playground and kindergarten classrooms of years ago, re-visits the retouching of your adorable grandson's image, forges into flirtation land and renewal of past friendships, and passes through the valley of the giant spiders... Sounds like a typical day for a flight attendant... ? !

Hey Beth

I am the big 40 this year and I have a son who is 23 so I know where you're coming from on the settling down early tip.

Still they bring great joy and empty pockets so its not all bad

Regards


Pete

Glad you like it.

I use Photoshop CS with the QuickPortraitBoost action from 1-click I find that with good starting images (like this one) it is often all that is needed for a little extra without going OTT.

I did this just because nobody seemed to want to touch the picture of your big tennis shoe..
