Fun with Photoshop

So, I'm taking online classes for photography and photoshop to help me quickly
learn skills to go along with my new obsession.
Right now I'm taking a class called, "From Photos to Graphic Art."
And my first experiment is colorizing old black and white photos.
Aren't these fun??





Top Left is my mommy. . . Source A of my eye and hair color
Top Right is my daddy. . . Source B of my eye and hair color
Bottom is my sister Erin, better known as my "twin";
hence, we share our eye and hair color!
(though you would never know since I'm always dying my hair.)

More experimentation to come!


NOTE TO SELF:
next time you are at your parent's house, you need to scan in old photos
so that you have digital copies to play with!

(I have over 10,000 photos in iPhoto, but less than 20 that date before 2001. Hmmm, that's well over 10,000 photos in just 7 years. What about the other 20 years of my life?)

Hey there! I found you through Ashley's blog and I just have to say, I am OBSESSED....I mean totally and completely OBSESSED with Wicked! How fun that you play Elphaba! I have seen the show 3 times in LA and once in NY- wow, it is just an incredible show! Congratulations!!

So very cool. I have yet to really figure out all the ins and outs of photoshop so I am very impressed! Oh and I share in that discrepancy in the number of photos I have 2005 to the present vs before 2005. All the old ones are scrapbooked, but I'd love to have them in digital form.

Our kids will be very fortunate in that respect =).

These are so fun! I just wanted you to know that I watched you doing Defying Gravity of You Tube and I loved it! I felt so proud of you Kathleen. I love your determination, and how you always seem to get what want. You're aweseom. And your voice....AMAZING! I don't know if you're heading back to the US anytime soon, but I'll be in HB for 2 months starting the end of august. I'd love to see you if you're there!
