More Altered Photography...

More before and after samples from the Altered Photography class...


Naples pier, Florida




Sculpture park in Seattle, Washington




Fort Worden in Port Townsend, Washington

Hand altering photos gives bad photos a new life and can make already decent photos more interesting. You can make them colorful and silly or go with the look of your choice: classy, serious, ghostlike, beautiful, scary, thoughtful...

Great stuff. Are you working on a copy or the original?

These are all photos prints made on photo paper. I usually have prints made at Meijer but their process may have changed recently and better results seem to come from prints made at Walgreens. Go figure?

Hi Lorrie,
Just checking i. OK now maybe I have to dig back a few posts but are these actual photos that are hand altered. Is the paper matte, lustre, or glossy? They look fabulous. I really like the look and have thought about altering some of mine but I guess I am chicken using the original.

I love them all, but think the his and hers is my favorite.

I like the befores and afters! They would look cool framed in the same frame.

Hey Lorrie-this is inspirationally fantastic!

I love the Fort Worden one! Were you at the paper artists conference there? I was at the Alternative Artfest there a few years ago.

Port Townsend is one of my most favourite places... we used to camp at fort Worden...

cheers!

Love the his and hers from Fort Worden. Were you there for ArtFest? (I've been twice -- 2007 and 2009)

These photos are all 4 x 6. I get them developed locally at our Meijer (Target, Walgreens, etc. works fine too). I don't have a finish preference as gloss or matte works fine. If you have an original photo that is just too precious to work on, just scan it and print it out again.

Seems that this stuff strikes a cord. I know that I certainly have enough photos laying around our house to work on. Feels kind of good to use stuff that is just in boxes.
