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.

I added some texture and lighting effects…

…merged the layers, added a little more texture, and here we are: the brothers in Brooklyn.

Aby-a-Day – 4 Juni: Paulo and some ‘Shop requests (Photoshop Friday)

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.

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.

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.

Then I decided to set the scene…literally.

Finally, every portrait needs a frame, right? Can you tell who is who?
