Steve’s Snap & ZapChallenge: Selfie

Original selfie (616x640)My hear sank when I saw the prompt from Steve this week.

Selfie.

Oh no

I hate selfies as they are so unflattering.  So I got my daughter to take this photo of me when I got all dolled up for my son’s graduation dinner.

It is time to move on from the selfie I have been using as it was before my marriage break up.  I did the usual thing and went and got a radical hair cut – I cut all my curls of.

So  I wont go into all the gory details of my editing to save an overload of images of my face.  I have narrowed it down to 2 photos.

As you can see I got rid of the wrinkles and mottled skin tones and blacked out the background to soften my face.

Then I used these great app that I found out through another wonderful blogger called Glaze.  Here you can find some more great photos with this app:

It gives an oil painting affect and best of all it is free.  So I thought I would go for an oil painting.  I love watching the Antiques Road Show and look at all the portraits that are centuries old.  So here is my version.

So I am asking which version is your favourite.

The photoshop version or the oil painting.

Thanks for your imput.

Thanks for visiting.

Snap & Zap: Let Me Take A 100 Year Old #Selfie…

For each Snap & Zap I will suggest a new theme so take a new photo or use an existing photo and edit it with any software you like, so…

  1. Create a new post showing the original
  2. What edits have you made?
  3. What software/techniques have you used?
  4. Link back to the current week’s page

The theme for this “Snap & Zap…” is Selfie.

Cheers
