"Photo within a Photo"

Uploaded: June 10, 2007


This is a photo of me and my art.
I was trying to be creative and show both a self image and some of my artwork which is an abstract Pen & Ink.
Layered background is an original photo of myself, then I took a photo of one of my ink drawings and edited it in Photoshop. I reduced it to fit then skewed it to look like it is on desk in front of me.

Thank you for responding to my image Bonnie. Your opinion is very important to me. I saw your gallery and I think it is great. Since I have joined BP, I have been getting a wonderful education in photography and creativity. I see all the creative work the other members submit. I am new to Photoshop and I appreciate all the help I can get from my newly made friends here at BP. #4383857

Hi Jessica, thanks for your nice compliments. I have always loved art which is my first love. Recently I started using a camera and now I have learned to combine the two. There is still so much to learn and so much to do. All my newly made friends here at BP and ESPECIALLY YOU are so helpful in their willingness to share their talents. You are all so talented and creative. I am having so much fun. Thanks!!! #4383874
