Working Hard!

DaGoddess @ 11:00

I’m still hard at work getting the OpLove photos edited. Some of the conditions while shooting were a bit crazy at times, but those one served to drive me to work harder and have more fun.

I have noticed that certain images lend themselves to a more “aged” look, too. Not every image. Not every family. But there are those…and I’m trying to decide, at times, if I’m overthinking some of these. I will say this: my Photoscape program? Single best extra program you can ever have. It brings me actions/options that I’d have to spend hours creating the “look” and then writing down the formula (since I don’t know how to write actions for PSP X2). Anyhow, like I said, I do have this sense of nostalgia for some images and I have to try them out on “unlikely” shots — meaning shots that either show the family in their natural element and would otherwise be a throwaway shot as cute as it is.

Here’s what I mean.


The aged version

As always, feel free to weigh in. Keep in mind this was a very fun, active family with four distinct directions in which they were headed, four very different activity levels, and they were just lovely to work for and with.

Tell me what you think.


  1. For a change, I like the second one better! The first is nice, but it’s not special, if YKWIM. There’s something very 50’s postcard about the second one… and that’s not a bad thing. Times were simpler, families were simpler. And the little girl and her rampant energy are showcased.
    I love it! :thumbs:

  2. I like the color changes that occurred as well as the ‘old’ look to it. I like the second one better.

  3. You know what it is? It’s what’s lacking that makes it look good aged. No screwy hairdos, no ugly t-shirts, no snarling kids…just a smiling mom & three happy younguns enjoying life. Maybe that’s just me, but that’s the way it used to be and how it should always be.

  4. What’s that weird alien in the lower-left quadrant, though? Looks like a stuffed overgrown chicken doing the splits.

  5. It’s a big ass bunny. It was the little boy’s favorite toy.

    And yeah, no crazy haircuts, kids kicking the hell out of other people, just…a family. That seems rather rare these days.
