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.
I added some texture and lighting effects…
…merged the layers, added a little more texture, and here we are: the brothers in Brooklyn.
Our friend Kinsey posted this photo to the “This Cat is PHOTOSHOPPED” facebook group and asked to have Paulo wearing a mask.
Welp. That was easy. Then I had an idea.
LOL why not, right?
But then I got the idea to put my Singapura mask on Paulo.
Pretty cute, eh? Then…Kinsey asked for Paulo to be dressed up in a tux for prom.
Considering I already have the perfect cat-sized tuxedo bib and tie, top hat, and cuffs with cufflinks…not a hard ask.
The shadows are already perfect, too. This was fun.
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.
Then I decided to set the scene…literally.
Finally, every portrait needs a frame, right? Can you tell who is who?
