Vintage Love

Uploaded: November 22, 2010


Re-edit, re-submit. Shot the photo of my daughter in a vintage dress that belonged to my mother from the 1940's. Styled my daughters hair to fit the era.
Light from window, shot raw, converted in CS3, added a scanned photo of a scrapbook paper that I hand painted and erased back to expose the image of my daughter. Lots of time on this one :)

Exif: F Number: 5, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/4 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 800, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 24.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XT

Impossible, really, to pick a favorite from your November entries -- every single one is a winner in my eyes. I'm going with this one because it's the most unusual and creative, I think, and because it showcases your multiple talents so very well. How fitting that the model for all your entries this month be Jessica -- hope she presents her gift to all of you long before finalists come out LOL. I'll go with Old Fashioned Girl as my 2nd choice but only because I love black and white and it's such a masterful example of that. Best of luck to you. #9082204

Thanks so much to each and everyone of your comments! I have a special fondness for this image. It took lots of work and was one of my first attempts at using layers. It was fun to do :)
Nikki, I appreciate all your time and your continued encouragement and support. It means a lot to me! THANKS!
