Aby-a-Day – 25 Juni: Another Singapura family portrait (Photoshop Friday)

Ever since I did a family portrait of Izaak and his brothers Paulo and Keiko, I have wanted to do another one of the three.

I really wanted to do an old-timey Victorian-era type portrait, but I couldn’t find any backgrounds I liked…until I found this old photo of the Brooklyn Bridge when it was new.

Aby-a-Day – 28 Maj: Family portrait (Photoshop Friday)

Our friend Kinsey shared some professional photos that were taken of Izaak’s brothers, Paulo and Keiko. I instantly knew what had to be done.

A family portrait, of course! Since all three boys came from Poland, I chose a Polish flag as my background.
