FAMILY, my family took a dozen photos of everything ALL the time.
I remember posing for photographs all the time. I cant remember a time there wasnt some camera out and around my sister and I growing up. My dad was a photographer, My mother took thousands of photos, My grandfather had to take a thousand photos of one photo.
My first camera! Nickelodon camera, you know what one im talking about? Chunky and covered in plastic green goo and purple.
What made this camera so memorable was it cook take 4 photos and place it in ONE photo! I have since loved collauges.
I was always the artistic one; in theatre, painting, making homemade christmas presents, seeing art in everything.
I would see something and just know i had to capture it. Or i would rearrange it so that it would look great to the eye.
Iphoto, you know the original photo library with apple? It used to have this black and white changer brush tool. Like color selection manually.
I spent HOURS of my nights making a photo of my sister being goofy black and white but leaving her in color. Or one of me holding a rose, see to the left? Do you know how hard that was in iphoto? It was difficult. You only had one size circle brush. But i wanted it to look artisitc. I began researching free programs that could do what i wanted but A LOT FASTER. Picknik.com was my first editor site, http://ipiccy.com is its new name now.
