Polaroid Picture Pieces

Bristol Cathedral

POLAROID-FRAMES Ross and MeIn a bid to improve my photography and take it that bit further, I recently decided to get a monthly subscription to Photoshop and Lightroom but I decided on the photographers package which means it is a very reasonable £8.57 per month.

One of the things that I love about the photography magazines I buy are the extras that you receive. In this months Digital Photographer they are giving away various templates to download and use in Photoshop and one of the lessons is how to create a photo joiner image using polaroid frames – presets which they give you to download.  

Firstly I chose two buildings. The first is Bindon House where Amchara Health retreat is based, and the other is Bristol Cathedral. Then, because it is Valentines Day, I had to share a photo of Ross and I. I think it adds a different dimension them all!

    These are beautiful and really original. I always say I need to learn Photoshop but I never seem to have the time and it looks so difficult!

    This is so much fun! I could play with that for hours. I’ve been toying with subscribing to Lightroom for a while now, I might have to take the plunge! #MySundayPhoto

    Hi Victoria, what an interesting affect. On first look I thought you must have taken ages matching the Polaroids (I am a bit dozy), then I read the post.
