Four Generations – The love between Grandmothers, Mothers and Granddaughters is forever!
The love between Grandmothers, Mothers and Granddaughters is forever!
My daughter (Karen) wanted to make a special photograph for her grandmother (Nadine) and her mother (Barbara) showing the four generations, from great grandmother down to great granddaughter (Jolie).
The intent was to take three framed photos, each one with a black background, starting with Jolie, then Karen and Jolie, then Barbara, Karen and Jolie, and finally Nadine holding the result.
- Karen first started with a photo of Jolie and framed it.
- I then took a photo of Karen holding the framed photo of Jolie and printed the result.
- I then took a photo of Barbara holding the framed photo of Karen and Jolie and printed the result. (NOTE – Karen wanted to surprise her mother and grandmother, so they were not allowed to see what they were holding.)
- Karen then went to visit her grandmother Nadine, holding the framed photo of Barbara, Karen and Jolie.
- The result ended up with Nadine holding the finished image.
Now I had a slight problem. The black cloth background was full or wrinkles and reflected the light in different ways. Each time I printed the last result of each photo shoot, the overall image started to degrade. I was not happy.
To to the rescue. I showed my result to Mindy Towns (a member of the Lakewood Ranch Digital Photo Club and she was also instrumental in starting this 52-Wk Challenge) and asked her how I can fix this.
She offered to edit it and fix it up for me. WOW! My daughter and I were very pleased with the result. Again, many thanks to Mindy Towns.
I must admit one thing. My daughter wanted to present this photo of four generations to her mother and grandmother on Mother’s Day. The images were actually taken prior to 1 August, HOWEVER, the image was edited and fixed just recently. I could not pass up the Theme #16 – “Frame within a frame”. I may have to take a legal one for this 2015/2016 year.
