I don’t know if this qualifies as “aftermath” necessarily, but I’m using today’s theme to catch up on the third, and I believe final round of family Christmas pictures…until next year. Or would that be this year, considering it’s already 2009 and I’m just getting around to posting now….Hmm?!
It seems like the theme for end of the year holidays was togetherness. For Thanksgiving, we had my entire family together for the first time since January and for Christmas this year, Garth’s entire family was together for the first time in a while as well. We thought we’d celebrate by capturing some great family shots.
Today you get to feast your eyes on the “formal” shots of our holiday gathering. Just curious if anyone else has trouble with their images getting “goofy” when the size is adjusted to fit the display window? In some of the shots below eyes are squished, lips disappear among other oddities.
Little ones + sugar + crowds – naps = a very real snapshot!
Think they’re proud grandparents or what?!
The entire family!
I really like this family picture! Seneca’s expression is such a reflection of the little personality she’s starting to flaunt!
I wanted to try a texture here because the picture was too bland by itself. I like the sepia tone of this background, but forgot how to replicate it for the one of them together. And, I know I erased too much, but I had to run and was too lazy busy to come back and fix it. I also wanted to fix her hair where the light was hitting it, but I was having no luck with the paintbrushes! Believe me, it wasn’t pretty!
This “surprised” look was the best I could do to get them together. For a good laugh, take a peek at this outtake! I’d love to hear ideas or suggestions about better ways to use texture to enhance images. I’m all ears! 🙂 If anyone wants a hand at processing these images differently, I’d love to see other interpretations!
