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.
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…
- Create a new post showing the original
- What edits have you made?
- What software/techniques have you used?
- Link back to the current week’s page
The theme for this “Snap & Zap…” is Selfie.
