A Ghostly Portrait
(The photo below is of my Mom. She really doesn't look this old. I used textures to give her an aged and ghostly appearance.)
I recently came across a tutorial by Wendy VonSosen Photography, titled (Before & After) How to create a Ghostly Portrait in Photoshop.
I instantly knew I wanted to give this a try. I went to the Salvation Army and found a beautiful dress (and it still had the tags!) I then cohearsed my mom, and my daughter to be my models. The following photo's are the results.
I also found that during this process, I was able to create some truely beautiful images of my mother and daughter that will become family treasures.
