Family Portraits - A Digital Scrapbook Layout of my family with heavy filtering and desaturation work applied to the photographs.

This page was an attempt at creating a “Brady Bunch” style story board with my sons.

Our family has missed out on doing annual family portraits for many years, simply because I never had the money to sit for them to be taken by a professional photographer. So I did a little rearranging of objects on the bookshelves in our apartment and had the boys take turns sitting for me.

My photo was taken using a large mirror.

As with so very many of my photos, I only had a mediocre camera on my mobile phone, and the photos didn’t really wow me. To make them a bit artsy instead of dull and boring, I opted to convert them to black and white and then ran some special filters over them using an Android app (app name currently escapes me).

Overall the photos are a little quirky and loads of fun …. I just wish that I had been able to find my very own, in real life, honest to goddess “Mike Brady“. Sighing.
