playing with photos

I went to Venture today for our viewing!!! It was such an amazing experience...the photos looked incredible!!!I just love how they make you look washed out yet vibrant at the same time. Mark and I even looked skinny in one!! It was so hard to only choose one, because I mean how often do you really go to all that effort to do a family portrait?

In one I was kissing Ben and my skin looked flawless, in another Mark was laughing so hard I have never seen him look like he's having such fun, and a really cute one of Ben looking over Maks shoulder....
..oh and the one where Mark and I are looking into each others eyes!!

But in the end I hurriedly chose all four of us with Georgia in the middle kissing Ben.

If I won the lottery I'd have them all put into one of those bound books that they do!!

Anyway I wondered if I could recreate that type of photo at home on my simple programme with a cool shot that I took yesterday under the blossom tree, and here are the results!!





Not quite up to venture standards but I like them! Does anyone know how to get them printed onto Canvass Frames at home? I have a few ideas like printing them onto my canvass paper and gluing it onto a frame or printing onto cheap A4 and gluing and sealing it on or printing onto iron on t-shirt transfer and ironing it onto the canvass frame.....I was just wondering if anyone has done it themselves yet?
I might google it.......

Goodnight xxx

OOh didn't realise this was Georgia, dosen't look like her, great effects though!! The middle one is my fav!!!

All I know is that ASDA do canvas prints!!!! If you can't find it on google, I don't know where else to look, maybe Sue might have an idea!!! Good Luck!!

I presume VENTURE is some professional studio?

Like your experiments below.

You can send your pics on line to Boots on line and they will print onto canvas for you.

If I understand you tho' you want a go at home, if that's right, you can get printable onable canvas from here http://www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk/ProductList.asp?SearchString=canvas
