Way Back When ...
BEFORE : AFTER :
This is picture of my two older sisters about 16 years back. The Before and After of this picture was done by the works of Picnik. One, there was a cropping of the picture. To create a bullseye of the figures in the picture and then to crop the edges, to have an old - picture type feel. Then, to add some color, I used the cross process effect and it made it look, vintagey. After, I blurred the edges and the sides of the picture which created a bigger focus effect. Last but not least, I wanted to add a more modern and humorous feel to the picture for the onlookers. As you can see, I wrote "HOLLA" on my sister's glasses which I personally thought was funny.
A fun fact about this picture is that it was taken in chinatown, in front of my aunt's buildings. Their dresses were hand-made by my mom and this was during the summertime. My sisters are now 19 and 21 and in college. Rocking the shades. :)
