By jeanie    
Not something I have done before so I am apprehensive about putting this up...

I started creating this picture over 18 months ago, in the autumn of 2005. Back then I threw it in the "too hard to do" pile and abandoned it. However in college my latest project is manipulation so I decided to resurrect this and try to finish it...

The bride is my kid sister, Diane. I took the photos at her wedding in May 2005.

I hope this is ok - its now been printed up and will be mounted over the weekend in order to hand in the project next Wednesday..

It's not perfect I know, but it's the most manipulation I have ever done!!!!! I may have to do more and practice the techniques...LOL!

Nice idea although your bending of the images to fit the film needs a bit of fine tuning.
Without knowing what software and technique you're using it's difficult to advise. However, if you're using CS2 (or 3 for that matter) the warp tool and possibly liquify would be my weapons of choice. Fit it as closely as possible then make smaller selections and warp them .

We are in process of mounting the print now.. and came up with cunning plan... we are cutting out sprockets on the mount to make it look like one huge negative.. hope it looks ok when finished or Trev may be annoyed as he is ossifer in charge of stanley knife : )

It certainly gave me a buzz... and on the strength of that I have chosen digitaI manipulation for my final project at college for my A Level.......... to do something different as the tutor keeps telling me to open up my boundaries.......

Gawd Help Me!

Great choice and I do wish you the best of luck!! Get yourself a Wacom graphics tablet, makes manipulation a whole lot faster, i dont know i lived without one for so long!!!

Bet you knock em dead!! Looking forward to more original work and ideas!
