The {K} Family

I did a shoot with this family last weekend. My spot was once again flooded (damn you, spring weather!), so it was another creative shoot with limited options. But we made the most of it. I'm only sharing one photo from this shoot as this was the client who specifically requested I don't share her photos online. However, the contract was specific to my business website only, and I do need to share what I taught myself in Photoshop. I know that Photoshop can do some amazing things. I also know that I have barely scratched the surface of what I can do with the program. I use it for editing only. I don't know how to do all that digital scrapbooking or imaging or design. I have no desire to learn either. However, the client had an empty frame and a canvas print of her other daughter who couldn't make it to the shoot. She wanted me to take a picture of the canvas print and insert it into the empty frame. Basically, put a picture into a picture. I figured this would work just like using a texture on a picture, and I was 100% right. I didn't spend a ton of time making the picture fit perfectly into the frame, and honestly, unless you take the pic and zoom all the way in, you would never know. I thought it turned out great - especially give the fact that a canvas print doesn't come off as "clean" - there is texture to it and it doesn't look as crisp. I would recommend just framing the stupid picture and bringing it. But hey, that's just me.  ;)
