My Groupon for Canvas On Demand was about to expire and I needed a high resolution pic for some wall art. But getting a picture where we’re all looking at the camera, smiling, have eyes open and don’t look goofy is a very impossible feat. So, I created one.
This picture was a possiblity: I liked how Thatcher was actually looking at the camera. What I didn’t like was the gap between Michael and Pierson.
This was possibility #2: I loved how there are 3 of us looking at the camera, but Thatcher didn’t get the memo.
So, my solution was to cut and paste! Hahah! I took Thatcher from one picture and glued him on to the second picture using photoshop! It took a lot more work than just ‘cutting and pasting’ to make it realistic, but you get the idea. Don’t look too hard, or you’ll see mistakes!
My computer isn’t calibrated and the colors were wonky when I tried to upload it to Canvas On Demand. I tried to fix it with no luck, so I eventually opted for the Black and White version.
A family photo may not be as first appears. The end.
