Beyond Layers Day 48 : Polaroid Love
Today's lesson involved processing a photo to give it a 1970s Polaroid look and feel. Here's my offering. A photo of the 3 Cousins from August. These three don't get to see much of each other because 2 of them live in Japan, so they treasure their time together.
I actually remember my grandma had a Polaroid camera. Auntie Cindy had another style of Polaroid camera with this kind of frame. You had to wait a minute or 2 for the picture to develop before you could peel off a top layer to see the image.
Here are the Photo Processing Steps :
Duplicate Background Layer
> In RadLab, Use PunchOut, Pool Party, and Cinnamon Toast stylets to get the lighting just right
Back in PhotoShop Elements, Flatten Image
Pull in a Polaroid Frame of choice from Fuzzimo
Drop the kid pic on top as it's own layer. Resize it to cover the black of the frame.
